WILLIAM D. CUTS JR. HIGH NEWSLETTER

MARCH 2022

A MESSAGE FROM OUR ADMIN:

March will hopefully bring us some nice spring weather with less icy sidewalks. There was lots going on in February, including significant changes with government protocols related to Covid. With stage 2 coming into effect March 1, essentially all school restrictions have been lifted. March will also be a busy time as we head into spring break at the end of the month.

Basketball season is still going for the senior teams with playoffs set to get underway the week of March 7. Check the WD Cuts website for dates and times and come watch some exciting basketball. The junior teams had very successful seasons with the junior girls winning the city championship. Congratulations to all involved and thank you to all the school basketball coaches for all the time you have put in.

March is the start of open house season with Bellerose on Wednesday, March 2, and Paul Kane Thursday, March 3. Everyone is welcome to attend even if you haven't registered yet. More information can be found on the respective high school websites. The WD Cuts open house is Thursday, March 10. There is a Rec Academy information session at 6:00 PM and then a general open house from 7:00-8:00. There will be no formal information session for the general portion, come check out the school during that time if you haven’t previously had the opportunity.

Registration for next year is currently open. If you haven't done so yet please log in to the PowerSchool parent website and confirm your child's information and select your school for the 2022-2023 school year. General option selection will be done in April. When we are ready for this stage of the scheduling process I will send out the details. Hockey academy registration is currently open through the following google form https://forms.gle/hupqUwBHPyqRd98Y7.
