Dear Parents and Students,
Today is election day. I would like to take a minute to say a prayer of thanks for living in such a peaceful and safe country where even our most heated political debates rarely end in violence or tragedy. I am thankful for our democratic process and the trust that smooth transitions in leadership happen at all levels of government.
We have a very busy week. Student led conferences, literacy and numeracy exams, and the work that must take place for the transition to full days for senior students are but a few things happening at Vanier this week. I look forward to seeing you all at our Student Led Conferences on Wednesday and Thursday.
Dear Lord, Thank you for the gifts of freedom, democracy and peace. Help us to never take our privileges for granted and help us to be better members of our community.
He has told you what is good; and what does the Lord require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God? Micah 6:8

Back to School Full Days for Grades 10-12 Starts Monday, April 19th
There is a bell schedule/timetable posted below for parents or students who missed it in last weeks email. We have copies of this form for all grade 10-12 students if they wish to have one. Since our bell schedule has not changed, students should be well acquainted with our schedule.
Senior School Bells
School starts at 8:45
Lunch is from 11:25-12:35
Afternoon class starts at 12:35.
We dismiss grades 10-12 at 3:15.
We made the decision at Vanier to keep our long lunch so that senior students will have time to meet with their teachers, meet with counsellors or learning assistance tutors or access resources in the learning commons. Because we will have around 20 minutes of overlapping times for our junior and senior lunch, we will be asking grade 10-12 students to vacate the cafeteria by 12:00 so that tables can be cleaned and made ready for the grade 8-9 students.
School Name Change
We have only received a few suggestions for the school name change. It’s not too late!
Please see the attachment with information regarding the name change suggestion process.
Please send your form to : email@example.com
Report Cards and Student Led Conferences This Week
Report cards will be available for pick-up at the Student Led Conference. All of your child’s teachers will have access to their marks, so if your child does not know this information, the teacher will. Please try to attend the student led conferences on Wednesday, April 14th, for grade 8 and 9 students and Thursday, April 15th for grades 10-12 students.
Because of the senior students going back to full time studies, any lunch time tutoring that was happening between a senior student and a junior student can no longer be accommodated. If the junior would still like to receive tutoring, they are encouraged to talk to Ms. Cann to make alternate arrangements to see what else can be made available.
Have a good week,
Katrina Brogdon, Principal and Alethea Wallace, Vice-Principal
