EHS Principal’s Message and important dates for March

gordPRINCIPAL’S MESSAGE:

Welcome to March.

March is the month for artistic endeavours at EHS. It is Festival month for the Music Program and they are getting ready to go to Disneyworld. Jr. Drama performances will be held on March 23 at 7:00 in the Jr. Gym. The Sr. Drama Club will present the comedy “Oddball” at 7:30 on March 15 in the Jr. Gym and then will take their performance to Sacred Heart for the Region 4 Drama Festival.

Because of the provincial election, the provincial budget will not be delivered until after that. That will mean that the division budget process will be held up for a while, and this means that we cannot start next year’s timetable until much later than we usually do. As a result, we will not host the High School Orientation (for grade 9 students) until April 6. This is about a month later than usual, so if you are wondering why we haven’t had it yet in March, now you know the reason why. The Orientation will take place in the Band Room at 7 pm. High school students will soon be choosing their classes for next year. Please spend some time with your children to decide upon course options and electives. Our timetable is based upon these choices. If a lot of students change their minds after the timetable is made, they may not get the courses they want because these classes may already be full. Post-secondary plans rely on these choices as well. If you have any questions, or are looking for advice in this area, please talk with me or Ms. LeSann.

Thank you to Mr. Daniel for the massive organization required for Activity Day on February 29. That is all for now. As always, my door is open.
