School Growth Plans are documents that help schools grow and develop in ways that improve student learning. Vanier Catholic Secondary is working on formulating a revised growth plan that will select goals and define objectives, measures and targets. In addition to school council members, two additional parent representatives are being sought to serve on the “Growth Plan Steering Committee”.
We are looking for parents who are able to provide broad input on issues that will directly impact student learning. If you are interested in serving on this committee, please email your expression of interest that details how you feel you would be able to best represent all parents’ interests in this capacity to firstname.lastname@example.org. For more information, please email or call Mr. Sikkes at 667-5901

For those who can't wait to read the newsletter...
The November School Council meeting will take place on Tuesday, November 26 in the VCSS Library starting at 7:30 p.m.
Interim reports will be mailed home on Tuesday, October 8. These may serve as the basis for the conversation at parent-teacher interviews that will take place on Thursday, October 17 from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. and Friday, October 18 from 8:30 a.m. to 12 noon.
At VCSS, we use an on-line booking system to help parents choose convenient times to meet all teachers, hopefully in a single visit to the school. Bookings will start on Thursday, October 10 at 9:00 a.m. Parents/Guardians can access the system through a link that will be posted on this site or by calling the school to book appointments at 667-5901.
We encourage all parents/guardians to book appointments with teachers to help establish a positive and productive working relationship - we know that kids learn better when teachers and parents are working together!
September 20 is a Professional Development Day for staff - there are no classes that day for students.
