New Classes

We hope that students will move to their 2017/18 classrooms by Thursday or Friday. Enrolment has fluctuated over the summer and final student placements may need to be reviewed. Once our numbers are secure, we can finalize our class configurations and teacher assignments, review student placements and move to their new classes. We will make every effort to have students in their new classes as soon as possible. 

Thank you for your patience and understanding.
