| Director's Message

Dear Families,

It is hard to believe that April is just days away and we are starting our third term. This month we will have our MAP (Measure of Academic Progress) testing for students 5-Sec 2, as well as the PSAT (The PSAT 8/9 and PSAT 10 – SAT Suite | College Board) testing for Secondary 1-2 students.

It is time to let us know your plans for the 2024-25 school year! Re-enrollment will open this weekend. You will receive a notification email and will be directed to Open Apply to indicate your plans. It is an easy process, but if you need help please contact:

Please feel free to reach out with any questions or concerns:

Best regards,
Rachel Geary

Dear Families,

We are making plans for the 2024-25 school year; we expect our school to continue to grow both in size and diversity. We will honor our commitment to offer significantly reduced fees from our pre-war tuition to help provide education to as many families as possible. However, our 2024-25 fees have increased slightly. If the fee increase is a challenge to your family’s finances, please apply for a scholarship. We are committed to helping our community. Please see the new school fees and school calendar for the 2024-25 school year. The re-enrolment process will begin in April; it is a very easy process through Open Apply – you will receive an email.

| "Empower" Lesson Plans

The Empower curriculum integrates the Success Orientations, Social Emotional Learning concepts, and Child Protection principles into individual lessons throughout the year. These lessons will be delivered during a dedicated weekly EMPOWER class time. This approach aims to equip students with a comprehensive set of skills applicable throughout their lives. Specific lessons tailored to each grade level ensure developmental appropriateness. While some concepts may be revisited annually, the lessons will vary based on the students' age. For more information, please see the QSI Empower statement.

Teachers will keep parents informed about the upcoming lessons for their child, and for certain grades, the lesson plans will be accessible in this newsletter. Click on the post below to view the message from the teacher.
