Welcome to new academic year 2017 – 2018
Dear Parents and Students,
We hope you had an enjoyable summer and want to welcome you to the 2017-2018 Academic Year. In order to start the year off on the right track we have a few reminders and notes for parents and students. The first note is that we have prepared binder packages for students in Grade 7 – 12 and they will receive them on the first day of their classes. Parents are required to pay for these materials by the end of the first full week of classes. We also want to remind all students and parents to read the parent handbook as it contains important details of the school’s technology policy, behavior expectations and policies as well as the schools goals and procedures. We also wish to remind all Grade 7 – 12 students that they must change for physical education classes.
If you have any questions or concerns about courses please contact your son or daughter teachers through their school email. This is the fastest way to find out about the progress of your son or daughter or to find out more information on course content and assignments.
If you have any other concerns please feel free to contact Julie Alfred the Secondary Vice Principal through email at firstname.lastname@example.org or call the school and leave a detailed message with Nirvana Essam the Executive Secretary of the Secondary and we will get back to you as soon as possible. The more information received the easier it to assist you.
We wish everyone a great year!
The Secondary Team

Kindly find below a direct link to the online sign up form to secure your requested conference time with your child’s designated teacher. It is very important to note that once you have signed-up for a time slot, it cannot be changed. Therefore, kindly ensure that you have selected the appropriate time slot for your meeting. Also note times need to be scheduled for each student if you have more than one child with the same teacher.
Students are expected to be with their parents/guardian for their conference.

Students Supplies 2017-2018
Teachers will be providing for most subjects, binders, dividers, various assortment of papers (lined/graph etc.), and other important information on the very first day of school in a package to the student. This way, we will be ready to begin instruction on the very first day of class and parents will not need to guess which supplies to buy their son or daughter for each class. Parents will be required to pay for the materials by the end of the first week of school. In Middle Years, the payment can be made to the homeroom teacher. In the high school, payment can be made to the subject teacher. At this time, it is my best estimate that for all core (5) subjects, materials will not cost more than 240 EGP (dependent on currency fluctuation). Students can still choose their own pencil cases, pens, pencils etc. and if they wish can purchase at the school store – The Canadian Koshk.
We also hope that by starting off the school year organized this way, it will take the stress off you as parents from trying to discern what is needed in the classroom. We have done this in the middle years and high school in the past with great success.
