O'Leary School Startup/ Welcome Letter - August 31, 2022

Welcome to Archbishop O’Leary! You are now a member of the Spartan family that has built a legacy of excellence over the past decades. High school is a time of discernment, where you will have the opportunity to discover your talents and passions. You will have the chance to gather with other like-minded young people keen to realize their full potential. As an O’Leary student, you are standing on the shoulders of giants that have gone before you.  When you walk the halls of this fine school, you will see the achievements that have been earned from the hard-working alumni that have gone before you. You now can add to this legacy of excellence. Let's make it happen, Spartans!

 

Student Supplies for September 

High school does not typically have a student supply list.  Normally, it would be a 3-ring binder per course, plus various pens, and pencils.   

Graphing calculators are a necessary tool for all students at the high school level in Math and some Sciences. At Archbishop O’Leary we recommend the TI Nspire CX II calculator which can be found at most local retailers and will also be sold through our Business Office, cost is approximately $158.00 for the 2022-23 school year.  

If you have questions about calculators, please contact Nathan Burns at nathan.burns@ecsd.net, Math Department Head, for clarification.

First Day of Classes for all students – September 1 – 08:15-11:59 (Thursday regular half day).


Course Changes

A great deal of time and effort is required of school staff to ensure each and every O’Leary student timetable matches the courses requested. However, depending on your core course and option choices this is not always possible.

Course changes will only be made for the following reasons:

  • Incomplete schedule - missing required courses for high school completion and/or post-secondary
  • registration
  • Course conflict
  • Change in course mark necessitates a change in course stream (i.e. 30-1 to 30-2)
  • Course(s) completed during summer school
  • Course changes will not be considered for reasons other than those listed above
    • Please note that you must have your course changes completed before you go through the registration process (i.e. Pay fees, photos, school ID)

Student timetables may also be adjusted by the school should it be determined that the course prerequisite has not been met.

 

Cohort Assistant Principal 

You will have an Assistant Principal who is linked to you for the duration of your time at O’Leary: 

Student last name beginning with:   

A-D - Ms. Gabriella Ferretti-MacKinnon - Gabriella.Ferretti-MacKinnon@ecsd.net

E-L - Mrs. Chelsea Androschuk - Chelsea.Androschuk@ecsd.net

M-R - Mr. Gary Armstrong -  Gary.Armstrong@ecsd.net

S-Z - Mrs. Dana Hutton – Dana.Hutton@ecsd.net


Academic Prerequisites

Students must meet a minimum prerequisite mark to progress to their next level course streams.

To ensure academic success, students will be placed in the stream that aligns with their prerequisite standing. 


Educational Planning

Your high school plan should include a review of the graduation requirements. Students should consider the entrance requirements of the post-secondary institution you would like to attend. Some jobs/careers may also have course requirements that should be considered. If you need assistance with this planning, please arrange a meeting with a school counselor or contact the post-secondary institution directly.

 

Program Information (Meet the Staff)

Meet the staff will take place virtually. More information will be sent out to all parents/guardians in September.

The staff of O’Leary look forward to welcoming you for the 2022-2023 school year. If you have any questions regarding this information, please contact the school front office staff or the Cohort Assistant Principal for clarification at 780-476-6251.
