Principal's Message

Sabre Families,


We hope everyone had a good weekend and that it does not take too long in getting adjusted to daylight saving time as we spring forward.


First off, I know there are many curling fans who were watching the Brier over the weekend. Congratulations to former Salisbury student and graduate, Brendan Bottcher and his team on winning the title! It is pretty cool for our current students, staff, and community when we see alumni doing amazing things!


This week brings us to St. Patrick’s day on Wednesday, which always brings energy into the building and a break from the norm, along with School Council on Thursday at 6:00 p.m. If you wish to attend, please CLICK HERE to join.


This past week, we had a good start to the registration process for our current grade 10’s and 11’s.


Step one had each class going through the course selection process along with the 3 year plan for their graduation in selecting appropriate courses on paper.


Step two commences on Monday, March 15, and Tuesday, March 16, where students will be completing their course selection in the computer labs. If you would like to go through this process with your child you can access the course selection form here, and to gain understanding of graduation requirements and the course selection process you can access this presentation done by Jeremy Cooper and Kofi Frimpong, two of our Guidance Counsellors. If your student would like to discuss their 3 year plan with an Academic Counsellor, they can check the box on the form and a counsellor will be in touch with them after Spring Break. If you are interested in learning about the requirements to qualify for the Alexander Rutherford Scholarship which is awarded for Grade 10, 11, and 12, you can access them here. The link for our 2021 - 2022 Course Handbook can be found below.


Have a good week and please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or concerns.
