At Vanier Catholic Secondary one of our primary goals is to assist your child in becoming an independent and engaged learner.
Student Led Conferences are a fantastic way to for students to show how well they understand their role as learners. Your involvement in this process sends a message that learning is important and valued.
A very important note is that, due to logistical reasons, the date for Student Led Conferences has changed to Wednesday, November 22 from 3:00 until 7:00 pm. (They were originally scheduled for the next day.)
There are no pre-booked appointments. Students will lead parents/guardians through a conversation about their learning in each class. Teachers will be available to clarify or provide additional information. Parents are always able to book specific meetings with teachers at any time through the school year to discuss concerns.
Our cafeteria will also be open and selling dinner items from 5:00 until 6:30 pm and we invite families to dine with us that evening.
Our administration team will be delivering short presentations that evening on the Revised Curriculum, Revised Graduation Program, and changes to report cards. To help us prepare this presentation, we are interested to hear your questions and concerns about these topics. Please share your questions or concerns by clicking HERE.
Attending Student Led Conferences is one of the best ways to find out how school is really going for your child. We very much hope to see you there!
A reminder that the Post-Secondary Info night is going to be Thursday October 19th at FH Collins High School at 6:30pm in the Atrium.
Our September newsletter is included in our start-of-the-year mailout. Please remember that those who return their forms and fees by September 22 will be added to a draw for an iPad mini!
We are very excited to welcome our new and returning students back to school for another great school year! School will start at 8:36 on Monday, August 28 for all students.
Grade 8 students will have their orientation session on Sunday, August 27 from 12:30 to 3 p.m.

School Supply Lists
Lockers have been cleaned out, the floors are being cleaned, and report cards are heading out in the mail in just another day or so!
The school office will be closed from July 4 until August 14. The firstname.lastname@example.org email will be checked periodically as will the voicemail at 667-5901.
Please remember that school supply lists are available HERE - students are responsible for providing their own supplies for the 2017-2018 year.
Have a blessed and relaxing summer break - see you in August!

Notice from Yukon Department of Education to parents/guardians on school supplies:
For the 2016-17 school year, the Yukon government provided one-time funding to School Councils to provide school supplies for Yukon students. This funding is now complete and will not be renewed. It took many hours of staff and volunteer work to administer, organize and distribute and we would like to thank all those who worked hard on this initiative. The total cost for the supplies was $569, 000.00 and after careful consideration, we did not feel it was the best use of resources to support Yukon students.
Schools will return to the previous process. Many provide a list of the school supplies that students will need in the fall with the end of year report cards or on their websites. Parents are responsible for ensuring their children have these supplies.
We are committed to making sure that any families that need help to provide supplies for their child will have support from Yukon Education. If you require assistance with providing school supplies for your child for the 2017-2018 school year, please contact your local school the week of August 22, 2017, or later if required. There will be plans in place at the schools to support your requests.
Many schools save extra school supplies at the end of the year and as last year’s initiative was unusual, we anticipate there may be some unused school supplies. All schools are happy to accept any unused school supplies and redistribute them for use as needed. We encourage recycling of any unused items. School superintendents will be connecting with their area schools to determine how best to provide any needed support in the fall.
Please direct any questions or concerns about school supplies to the Department of Education.
