April 20, 2021:  Video #6: Quarter 4 Grade 8 Video

Dear Grade 8 students and parents,

 We have some more changes to our schedule coming in Quarter 4, so Mr. G and I have put together a short video to walk you through them.  Starting in Quarter 4, on Tuesday, April 27th, grade 8 and 9 students will be attending BOTH their quarter 4 classes face-to-face.  The new schedule is explained in the video.  Be sure to check MyEd BC before April 27th to make sure you know what your Quarter 4 classes are.

This is also a reminder that Quarter 2 begins on Wednesday, November 18th (this week!) with our “Transition” day. You will attend your D4 block (also known as 2-2) on Wednesday, and your D3 block (or 2-1) on Thursday, November 19th.  Confused?  Watch the video!  Still have questions?  Please email either Mr. G @ ogoncalves@vsb.bc.ca OR Ms. Thomson at kthomson@vsb.bc.ca
