In a couple of weeks, you will receive an email with an invitation to participate.

Vanier Update – Sept. 25, 2018

Hello parents/guardians!  First off, I apologize for the lack of communication to start the school year.  We have transitioned to a new messaging system that has taken me a while to figure out.

We have had a great start to the 2018-19 school year!  There are a few items that I would like to share with you:

1) Please take a moment to read through the HTCSD Fair Notice Brochure…we ensure that student safety is a primary focus in our school and school division.
2) If your family is interested in purchasing student accident insurance, please click HERE for more information.
3) Grade 11 & 12 families – please take a moment to look through the following links: 2018-2019 Career Event Booklet and Remind. More information from Ms. Lapointe is available HERE.
4) Grade 9 families – last year all grade 9 students in the city of Moose Jaw participated in a depression awareness and suicide prevention program.  We will be continuing the initiative this school year.  We are planning an information night on Wednesday, October 10 @ 6:30pm in the Vanier Library.  We will send out more information and a reminder about the meeting next week.

That is all for now…do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.  Please visit our website at vanier.htcsd.ca for updated information.

Career Centre – Sept. 24

Hello Parent(s)/Guardian(s):

There are many opportunities out there for your child to start exploring careers, programs and employment opportunities.  I wanted to provide you with the 2018-2019 Career Event Booklet and information on how to sign up for Remind. Remind is a tool I use to send out scholarship, career, tours and a variety of other career information.  Please feel free to join as well, while encouraging your child to do so.

I plan on booking individual appointments with every grade 12 student before December to see if any assistance is needed in applying to post-secondary, scholarships, SAT/ACTS, or career inventories, among many other things. I also encourage all grade 12’s and parents to become familiar with vanier.htcsd.ca/pursueonline.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions, christa.lapointe@htcsd.ca.

Have a good week,
Christa Lapointe
