Welcome to Semester Two! Classes begin on Monday, February 5.
There are a number of changes to our staff list as of this semester. First, we would like to express our congratulations and gratitude to Mr. Stu MacIver, who has retired from the school to pursue his automotive repair business. Stu will be missed by everyone!
Mrs. Maydell is off on maternity leave after she and her husband welcomed their son to the world. Congratulations, Mrs. Maydell!
We would like to welcome Mr. G. Arsenault (TCJ3C, TCJ2O, TIJ1O); Ms. D. Gerrard (ENG1D); Ms. J. Miller (ENG1P, NBE3C, and CHC2L); and Mr. B. Skean (ENG2P, AVI3O, and ENG3E/ENG4E). While GCHS looks for a new automotive teacher, Mr. L. Barrett will be covering the classes.
Here is the current GCHS Timetable.
Students requiring timetable changes need to book an appointment with Student Services as soon as possible. A sign-up sheet is posted outside of Student Services.
Students are also reminded to return textbooks from semester one courses to Fran in the library.
Attendance is a key factor to success. Come every day! Thanks, and see you on Monday!
Semester One Exam Information
As students return to school after the Christmas Break, it’s important for them to start planning for exams and course culminating activities. This is especially true for Grade 9 students who may not have written an exam before. Here’s the exam schedule:
ALL EXAMS WILL BEGIN AT 10:30AM ON THE SCHEDULED DAY.
Friday, January 26: Period 1 Exams
Monday, January 29: Period 2 Exams
Tuesday, January 30: Period 3 Exams
Wednesday, January 31: Period 4 Exams
Thursday, February 1: Emergency Exam Day
Some classes do not have exams. Instead, teachers may schedule an end-of-semester culminating assignment. It is very important for students to speak with their teachers about course assessments. It’s also extremely important that students speak to their teachers about missing assignments.
Finally, textbooks for Semester One courses can be returned to the library during the last week of classes or exam week.
Attention Potential Grads:
