Yearbook orders will be taken on Wed Nov 19, and Thurs Nov 20 in school outside of the cafeteria.  Cost is $28.00.  We only bring in the number of yearbooks which are preordered, so students need to reserve their copy now.  After this time, students need to find Mr. Taggart directly.  Yearbooks can be ordered online at the following link:
If anybody would like to sponsor a page (cost is $50), please contact Mr. Taggart at

New page added – school “calendar”

We have recently created a school calendar, it can be found in our pages section called “calendar”.  We will post school events and important dates on this calendar.

Grad photos

Grade nine grad photos will be taking place on Wednesday and will continue on Thursday. Boys may wish to wear a dress shirt and tie from home. If not, the photographer will provide dress shirts and ties here. It is suggested that girls wear a V-neck shirt, or any shirt that will not be visible above the neckline of the grad gown. Student assistants will begin taking classes down to the cafeteria during first period on Wednesday.

Email issue

We have recently become aware that some of our teachers and administration staff are not receiving all e-mails from parents and students. We apologize if we have not responded to a message for this reason. We are working with our technicians to resolve the issue.

Parent teacher interviews

Interviews will take place on the evening of Thursday, November 6 from 6:00 – 8:30 p.m. and Friday, November 7 from 9:00 – 11:30 and 1:00 – 3:00 p.m. There will be no set appointments. Parents will be able to visit with the homeroom teacher as well as other subject/specialist teachers. Please enter through the triple doors on the Simmons Arena side of the school.

Interviews will vary in length, but on average will be three to five minutes. Arrangements can be made with the teacher to meet at a later date for anyone who requires more time.

This year, grade seven homeroom teachers will be stationed in their classrooms. Grade eight and nine teachers will be stationed in the gymnasium in alphabetical order.

Grade eight and nine teacher names and subjects will be posted by the gym and grade seven teachers and subjects will be listed in the grade seven area. We will have several peer helpers available to assist parents finding their child’s teachers.

For your convenience, please ensure you know what homeroom your child is in (eg: 7A, 8B, 9D, etc.) and even better, please bring a list of teachers whom you would like to meet. Please check SAS to confirm subjects and teachers.

Parents are also asked to introduce themselves and to indicate the name of their child when meeting each teacher.

Language interpreters, for those parents who require them, will be available on Friday morning and will be available on a first-come first-serve basis.


Students are reminded of the haunted hallway and movie night here at QC. Students wishing to take part in the haunted hallway are to enter through the grade 8 doors. Haunted Hallway opens at 6:30 pm.
The movie “Halloweentown” will begin at 7:00 pm. There is no charge for the movie.
Concessions are available. For $2.00, students may purchase a bottle of water and a treat bag. The movie should be over between 8:20 and 8:30.

Students and staff are invited to dress up on Friday. We will collect $1.00 for this. If students do not wish to dress up, they can opt to pay $1.00 to wear a hat for the day. All money raised over the next two days will go to support an Island family.

Home and School meeting

The next Home and School meeting will be on Nov. 26th @ 7:00. Tammy Hubley-Little will be giving a presentation on the new Progress Monitoring assessment model. This is an excellent opportunity for parents to learn more about this model and ask any questions they may have.

Grade 9 Parents Meeting – Band Trip & Ottawa/Quebec Trip

Dear Grade 9 Parents and Guardians, we would like to invite you to two very important information meetings being held here at the school on Monday, September 29. The first meeting will be for Grade 9 band parents at 6:30 in the band room. Mrs. Andrew will share information regarding the band trip and will outline the dates and itinerary.

At 7:15 Monday evening, we also welcome you to attend an information session in our cafeteria regarding our Ottawa/Quebec City trip. We encourage your participation in this event to give us an idea of how many students may wish to join us on this Grade 9 trip. John Dunphy from Target Tours will present the itinerary as well as other important information.

We look forward to seeing you Monday evening!
