Dear parents & guardians,
Students are now being invited to choose option courses for the 2020-2021 school year. Parents are encouraged to talk with their children about this process and support them in choosing option courses that promote and enhance their skills and abilities as well as meet their needs for future academic endeavours.
It is widely recognized that the addition of a second language allows for broader post secondary and career opportunities. For this reason, Sir John Thompson is excited to be restructuring our French program to allow for students who have previously not taken French, or left French in an earlier grade, to join the French program in grade eight and/or nine.
Please note that every effort is made to ensure that students are given the options they identify as being their top three choices but, like previous school years, this will depend on program availability and staffing. Requests will be filled on a first come, first served basis so students are encouraged to submit their completed options forms by Friday, March 20th. Additionally, complimentary course offerings are determined by program interest and enrollment which means that Sir John Thompson School reserves the right to remove/replace options should an option receive a low or limited number of student requests.
Please do not hesitate to contact the school if you have any questions regarding the options selection process. We are looking forward to an exciting 2020-2021 school year!
