Important course information for students entering Grade 7 next year.

June 19, 2017

 

Dear Parents and Guardians of Grade 7 students,

We are changing our exploratory courses to align with a new document from Alberta Education, Career and Technology Foundations (CTF). Courses will be listed under two main headings, Fine Arts and CTF. Fine Arts classes include band, art, music, drama, etc.

CTF courses must cross over between occupational areas like human services, technology, business, communication, and resources. The courses are designed to provide students with opportunities to explore areas of interest, develop new skills, and enhance their school and life experiences.

 

Please read the course descriptions with your child. These can be accessed on the school website at: http://chestermd.rockyview.ab.ca/publications/exploratory-courses

 

Together with your child, complete the attached course request form. We require your signature to indicate that you are aware of your child’s choices. These forms must be returned by June 21, 2017. We make efforts to assign students in areas they prefer. Please keep in mind, there are scheduling and class size limitations. A delay in returning a completed form may result in the student missing out on the opportunity to have his/her name placed on an exploratory list. Changes will not be permitted after lists are finalized.

 

We will be using an electronic sign up for these courses. This will be completed at school with our support. Parents and guardians, we thank you for your support. If you have any questions please feel free to contact the school.

 

Sincerely,

 

John-Mark Crane

Assistant Principal
