Transcript Error

This message is for students who complete World Geography 3202 in January 2016. The Department of Education made a clerical error that omitted the grade from transcripts. The new transcript error has already been fixed and a new one mailed out. The grades are automatically sent to MUN, so admissions will not be affected.

Prom/Safe Grad Message – Monday, June 20th

To all parents/guardians of prom attendees:

We are all excited to share in the Prom Celebrations with our student on Thursday, June 23rd, at the Holy Heart of Mary. As the time gets closer, we would like to encourage our students to make safe and positive decisions. Prom is a time when many pressures can be placed upon the graduates and it is critical that they understand their choices and their implications. We are requesting parents to partner with us and the Prom and Safe Grad committees to support students in making positive and healthy decisions. This helps to ensure that this is both a safe and enjoyable event for students.

Your expectations for your students play a vital role in their positive decision-making.

We would especially like to encourage you to model healthy choices and let students know that you are there for them should they need any help. Students may feel pressured by their peers to make unsafe choices, but we need to help them to make decisions about which they will feel proud. Students have come this far because they have made many good choices – let’s all help them to continue on this path.

Please note that the only Prom events sanctioned and supported by the school are the Prom and the subsequent Safe Grad which follows at the school. These events are all planned and delivered by volunteer parents and teacher volunteers. Please respect the time and energy that this has taken.

These are drug and alcohol free events for everyone, including graduates, parents/guardians, and guests. Please note that anyone under the influence of drugs or alcohol will be denied access to the Prom or Safe Grad.

 We will have staff and outside agencies checking students at the meet and greet and the school portion of the prom. Any violation of the above will result in student being told to leave the event for its duration and may result in them not being able to participate in Cap and Gown in December.

 Any other student activities organized outside of Prom and Safe Grad are not school-sponsored events. Parents and guardians should be aware that providing alcohol to minors, or allowing minors to consume alcohol in your home, is illegal and has consequences. There are many risks associated with drug and alcohol use, especially amongst young people and we urge you to help prevent a senseless tragedy.

Thank you for everything you have done to make this a special time for our students. With your positive input, we can make this a safe and enjoyable event for everyone involved.

Eng 1201, Eng 2201, Eng 3201 – Important

All students that are currently registered in English 1201, English 2201, or English 3201 are REQUIRED to complete a Listening Exam at 9:00am on Tuesday, May 31st as instructed by the Department of Education.

The Listening Component is worth 10% of a students grade.

If a student misses the public exam English 3201 Listening portion, then the exam will still be scored out of 100%, with a 10% omission, the most a student could score therefore, is 90%. A student may request a supplementary exam in August ONLY as there is no opportunity to do this before then.

If a student misses the English 1201 or English 2201 Listening portion, a medical note is required to be excused.

Punctuality is essential as we are required to start this at 9:00am promptly. Students arriving late will not permitted to enter the class.
