Science 10 Lab Exams - This is a reminder to parents of first semester Science 10 students that they have been scheduled to complete a final practical lab exam in addition to their written Science 10 final. The more than 300 Science 10 students each have been given a date and time to come to school during exam weeks to do this. These lists are posted on our website, in the Science section. In addition, each student has also signed a copy of the schedule, beside their name, in their Science class. Teachers have discussed the lab exam process with students. As this is part of their final exam (worth 5% of their final Science 10 grade), this is not optional, nor able to be rescheduled. Please check with your student to ensure they know the date and time of their appointment.

Transportation - Plan transportation routes in advance. Many of the afternoon 700 series routes returning to the communities will not be operating during exam week. The Nolan Hill Calgary Transit Bus will be operating as normal.

Mark Reporting - Marks will be posted for students to review. For further information please review detailed information in the student agenda book or on the school website.

Report Cards - Report cards will be distributed through homeroom on the first day of the second semester.

Diploma Course Mark Appeal Day - January 16, 2017 - Diploma mark appeals for school earned course marks in diploma courses.

Semester 2 Timetable Changes - When students chose their classes last year, we worked hard to create a timetable that included their top choices. Our timetable was created based on students' course requests, along with our allocation of teachers. We expect the students to follow through with their choices and adjustments may be made to academic classes if final marks warrant the change.

Requests to change teachers will only be considered if the current student has previously completed a class with that same teacher. If you have not completed a class with a teacher you may not request a change.

Students will not be granted class changes for complementary classes. If a student was scheduled for a class that he/she did not choose, we will review the original registration form and attempt to make changes where possible.

Students who need to make important timetable changes for second semester may do so by adhering to the schedule below:

  • January 3 - 14- by booking an appointment with your guidance counsellor
  • January 16 - 27 - by seeing a guidance counsellor on a drop-in basis
    10:00 - 12:00 and 1:00 - 3:00 pm
