Thomson's DECA Business Club is collecting donations of clothing and household items to help raise funds for their competitions. A letter was sent home last week, detailing the program and the ways your donation can benefit both our students and the Salvation Army (who will ultimately receive the donations). Please read it here: Letter to Parents.
Don't know what kinds of materials to donate? Check this handy list.
Please find the January 2015 Exam Schedule attached below.
Students are reminded to bring their student ID card with them to every examination.
Review your schedule carefully - you are responsible for knowing the dates, times and room numbers for each of your exams.
- You will not receive extra time if you are late to an examination.
- If you miss an examination, you will receive a mark of ZERO, unless a medical certificate, clearly indicating the reason for the absence, is received in the main office by 12:00 noon the following day.
When you are dismissed from an examination, you must either leave the school, or report to the library for quiet study. The library is open from Jan 22-27 between 10:00am and 1:00pm.
If you have 2 exams on the same day and at the same time, see Mr. English for a revised schedule.
If you have 3 exams on the same day, see Mr. English for a revised schedule.
