Dear Mini School Parents and Students,
Thank you for submitting all your cheques for the 2010-2011 school year and the Strathcona forms. Next year is already in full swing as we have booked and paid deposits on all of our trips. We still need to collect outstanding post-dated cheques from those who have missed the June 16th, 2010, deadline.
Due to increased financial pressures, we must address those who have not submitted their fees for the 2010-2011 school year. Of concern is our first trip to Strathcona which occurs within the first week of school. At this point in time, we will be unable to fund the participation on the Strathcona fieldtrip of students who have not paid their fees.
The McNair Mini School is about more than just academics. Students are given the opportunity to experience life and to strengthen relationships among all the students within the program.
As you are aware, the Mini School program co-ordinates with an award called The Duke of Edinburgh. To complete these awards, Bronze, Silver, and Gold, one must achieve numerous aspects such as volunteering, physical education, finishing a skill, and going on expeditions, something that the Mini School encourages its participants to take part in. Strathcona is key to this.
All fees are due now. Please contact either Ms. Sebellin or our Business Assistant, Ms. Goertz (604-668-6575) if you have any questions or concerns regarding the payment of fees for the 2010-2011 school year.
Have a wonderful and safe summer and we look forward to another great year of “Pushing our Envelopes!”
Mini School Staff
