    If parents have questions about course selection for next year's grade 8s, please contact either Mr. Hall, Mrs. Oetter or Mrs. Hamblett. All grade 7s attended the Day in the Arts last week and have then been asked to fill our their course selection for next year. Normally we would follow this up with a parent meeting. This, however, has been postponed for a later date when all parents with questions about next year can attend. Stay tuned for this date to be announced after spring break.
