Highwood School (Chinese Bilingual Program) Open House
Thursday, January 8th, 2015 @ 6:30 pm
Highwood School will be hosting an Open House for all families interested in learning more about the Mandarin Bilingual program in the Highwood School gym. Since Kindergarten and Grade One are entry points for the program where students do not need to have prior knowledge of the language, this will be the focus of the Open House. Please note that there is another NW location for the Mandarin Bilingual program at Marion Carson School. Kindergarten-Grade 2 students who live in Area I will be designated there. Students who live south of 17th Avenue North will continue to be designated to Midnapore School. Please contact those schools to learn more about their Open House dates and times and to ensure that you are indeed designated to their locations. You can only register and attend those schools that you are designated to and transportation is only provided to designated school. Because of the unpredictable number of students that apply to the Mandarin Bilingual program, all students will be part of a lottery system and therefore are not guaranteed entry. The lottery will take place on Monday, March 2, 2015.
