Dear Parents/Guardians of Grade 9 Students:
Your son/daughter will soon be embarking on the next exciting stage in his/her educational journey. We are looking forward to welcoming these new students to Catholic Central High School (CCHS), and being part of their academic, spiritual, and social growth. To help ease the transition from junior high to high school, and to ensure that you have all the information necessary to assist your child in making decisions, we invite you to attend our parent meeting, to be held as follows:
- Tuesday, February 4, 2020, Campus East – 405-18 Street South; 7:00 p.m. in the cafeteria
During this parent meeting, we will provide information about program selection and registration. Students are also welcome to attend these meetings, although they will be receiving similar information during their orientation visit to CCHS.
In terms of how to register your child to attend CCHS, current Holy Spirit students will be completing a registration update (“re-registration”) form online. Students from our feeder schools (of which FLVT is one) will need to indicate the designated school as CCHS. The division is targeting February for these registration update forms to roll out to you via email.
For the course selection process, I will be visiting FLVT on Monday, February 10 (a.m. classes.). During this time, they will receive a course selection sheet and will be guided through the first stage of completing their program selection. Please ask to see your child’s course selection sheet when he/she comes home. We will be returning to FLVT between February 24 and March 2 to visit all Grade 9 classes and, at that time, will collect from students their signed course selection sheets. Please note, however, that students cannot be registered at CCHS until the registration update form has been submitted online.
The parent meeting and the visits to the schools should provide you and your child with the information you need to transition to high school. However, if you require more assistance or information, please contact any of our counsellors or administrators at CCHS and we will be pleased to set up an appointment time to answer all your questions.
At CCHS, we believe that a culture of Rigor, Relevance and Relationships is essential to ensuring the success of all students. We look forward to welcoming you and your child into our community.
Joanne Polec, Principal CCHS
