Dear Parents / Guardians,

I would like to update you on some important upcoming dates for students of The YMCA Academy.

We are doing things slightly differently this year.  Whereas in the past you received your son’s/daughters/ward’s report card at the parent/teacher interview, this year we are completing the report cards more than a week in advance of the interviews.  We feel that this will give each of you a greater opportunity to absorb the information on the report card prior to meeting with teachers.

Reports will be distributed on April 15th.  For students who are in jeopardy of failing a grade 11 or 12 class, they will have until April 27th to decide whether to drop the course (in which case it will not appear on their academic transcript), or to continue in the course (in which case it will appear on their academic transcript).  Attached is more information Full Disclosure on the Ontario Student Transcript.

Parent/Teacher interviews will follow, the evenings of April 27th and 28th.  Attached is more information on Parent/Teacher interviews.

If you have any questions or concerns about this information, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us at the Academy.

Apr. 6th, 2011 – Parent/teacher interview details
