Dear Parents and Guardians,
This message is a reminder that Don Ross Secondary will be hosting an Open House for all students and parents on Tuesday, October 28th between 6:30 and 7:30pm. This school event will provide you with an opportunity to meet your child’s teachers as well as visit the various facilities in our school including our School Library, Gymnasium, Cooking/Textiles Room, Wood Work/Metal Work Shops and much more.
Please note that this event is not intended for parents to inquire about their child’s academic progress. If you would like a progress update please contact your child’s teacher(s) directly via email. Our school will be conducting Parent-Teacher Interviews in early December following Term 1 Report Cards at which time parents will be able able to discuss their child’s academic progress with teachers.
Hope to see you Tuesday!

We have received notice that a tentative deal has been struck between BCPSEA and the BCTF.
