What We've Done: Ms. Buteau (Vice-Principal), Jacquie (from the office) and I have added all of the students whose families I spoke with about not being on the list, and the confusion it cost. We've posted a new list in the school hall way and I've shared a picture of it here with all the new names that met the 86.0% cut off in a students best seven classes.
Future Honour Rolls THIS YEAR: For the remainder of this year, Honour Roll will be run internally at the school on the original guidelines that were expected and outlined by the agenda. Second and third term honour rolls will hopefully run much smoother and more accurately than the first.
Future Honour Rolls STARTING NEXT YEAR: Going forward Honour Roll will be run by the district and require an 86% average in ALL classes (no dropping your worst class). Grade 8s, 9s, and 10s will have to have a minimum of eight classes to be considered, while grade 11s will require a minimum of seven classes, and grade 12s will require a minimum of six.
I'm really quite excited by the efforts of so many of our students. No matter what the requirements, we've got some great kids!
