May 16th – District Orientation for Incoming Grade 8 Students

Dear Grade 8 Parents:

This is a reminder that Thursday, May 16th is District Orientation Afternoon. The afternoon provides students with an opportunity to visit Mt Douglas Secondary School and learn a little bit about the school they will be attending in September. Your child will need to arrive at Mt Doug between 12:45 and 1:00 pm.

If your child is currently attending Arbutus Global Middle School, they will walk to Mt Doug with some EA staff from Arbutus and some leadership students from Mt Doug. If your child attends another SD61 middle school or a school from out of district, parents are responsible for arranging transportation to Mt Doug. Your child will be dismissed from Mt Doug at 2:30 and will be responsible for getting home from Mt. Doug at the end of the school day.

We are excited to meet with all of our incoming grade 8 students and sharing with them what makes Mt Doug a great place to spend the next 4 years. Our leadership students are putting the finishing touches on our plans for the afternoon and we hope they are equally excited. Your child does not need to bring anything, just a positive attitude.

If you have any questions, please contact the Mt Doug office.


Ms. T. Sherstobitoff,
