All Saints Blog Week of October 15th, 2018

Grade 9-12 Letters of Progress and Parent-Teacher interviews
Letters of concern for students in grades 9-12 were sent out as part of a message this past Friday from school. All Saints wishes to remind parents of high school students (grades 9-12) that parent/teacher interviews will be held on Thursday, October 18th. There will be an early dismissal at 1:30 pm that day for all students in grades 7-12. The scheduled times for interviews are from 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm and again from 5:00 pm until 7:00 pm. We will also have a special “optional” session for parents of students in grade 10, providing information on the Ontario Secondary School Literacy Test. Test structure, strategies for preparation and other information will be highlighted in the meeting from 6:30 to 7:00 pm in room 158.
Booking interviews for October 18th will be done online through the You Can Book Me program. The link can be accessed through our website as of Monday. Parents/guardians are reminded that if they are unable to schedule an interview with a particular teacher, they are welcome to contact the teacher at the school to have a telephone discussion.
Please note interviews are 10 minutes in length and parents are asked to request a maximum of one interview slot per teacher. 7&8 Report card distribution will take place on November 1st, and parent teacher interviews with grade 7&8 teachers will be on November 7th.

Youthnet Presentations

All grade 7&8 classes have been participating in Youthnet presentations at All Saints.  These mental health sessions include information regarding the importance of balanced mental health and effective coping strategies for distress while speaking about the role of peer influence.  Additional information can be found at their website:

Ottawa Public Health Presentation: The legalization of Cannabis

There is a great deal of information on the CSPA website regarding information for parents and upcoming sessions. You can visit the website here.
