Welcome Back to a New School Year!

I hope everyone is enjoying their summer.  We are now busy in the Caledonia office preparing for the upcoming school year.  Our office is open from 8:30 – 3:45 Monday through Friday until the Opening of school.  Just a few reminders for parents and students about the start up:

  • Counselors will be in the school the week of August 26th to 30th to assist students with changes to timetables and to help enroll new students.  It is advisable to come and discuss possible course changes this week, as the first week of school is very busy in the counselling office and students may have to wait to change courses.
  • The first official day of classes for students is on Wednesday, September 4th.  On that day, students will attend a half day with a mini block rotation of their first semester courses.  Dismissal on September 4th will be at 11:00.  Thursday, September 5th will be the first regular day of classes for students.
  • A letter to all parents will be going out next week with important information about school start-up, and will include an updated student schedule.  Please keep an eye out in your mail for this letter, and if you have not received one by Monday, August 26th, please contact the school office.
  • This year we welcome a second vice principal to Caledonia.  Mr. Joe Dominguez, a long time Caledonia teacher, will assume his new role as vice principal.  We are excited to welcome Mr. Dominguez to the administrative team at Caledonia.  We also welcome quite a few new teachers to Caledonia this fall.
