We are now in the final week of the course selection process and Gr. 10 & 11 students are reminded that all course selections must be submitted by Thursday, February 26/15. Career Cruising will be locked after this date.

Please remember that a counsellor is available in the computer lab off the Learning Commons Center during both lunches to help students with any aspect of this process.
It is imperative that all Gr. 10 & 11 students returning to Villanova next year complete this process by the February 26/15 due date.

However, Gr. 9 students are reminded that this date does not apply to you.
Gr. 9 students will be working with Ms. Ray to enter their courses during period 3.
A schedule for this process has been issued to all period 3 Gr. 9 teachers.

So Gr. 9 students do not panic!
Ms Ray will be contacting you during your period 3 class to help you input your course selections for next year.
