Official Start of the Second Half of School

February 2, 2019


When classes began last Friday morning (February 1, 2019) we officially started the second half of our school year. Though fully ensconced in the present, we are now also at that point where we are keeping an eye towards our planning for next year. For our Grade 12s this involves the finishing touches on their applications to post-secondary schools and making some difficult yet exciting choices for their life ‘beyond STMC’ next fall. For our Grade 8s-11s, the focus over the next month or so will be on the Re-Registration and the Course Selection processes for 2019-2020. Both of these items will happen prior to Spring Break. ​

Course Selections for 2019-2020 will again be done online via PowerSchool. It is also the second time that our Re-Registration process will be done completely online by families. Details for both will be coming to you soon. To ensure that your daughter/son’s placement is secured for 2019-2020, Re-Registrations must be finalized by March 4, 2019.

In order to assist students and families with Course Selection and to examine how the courses they select might influence their Graduation Program and Post-Secondary pathways, we will be hosting two separate information evenings for our STMC parents later this month.

Junior School Course Selection Meeting

When: Tuesday, February 19 @ 6:30-7:30pm

Where: STMC Cafeteria

This session will be tailored specifically for our current students moving from Grade 8 into 9 and Grade 9 into 10.

Senior School Course Selection Meeting

When: Thursday, February 21 @ 6:30-7:30pm

Where: STMC Cafeteria

This session will be tailored specifically for our current students moving from Grade 10 into 11 and from Grade 11 into 12. Specific focus on the New 2018 Graduation Program, as well as the changes to both UBC’s & SFU’s Admissions Requirements.

We will try to keep these sessions as concise as possible and to also leave a sufficient amount of time for individual questions.
