Hello everyone and welcome to Virden Collegiate!  I am happy to say that we have had a very positive start to the 2016 – 2017 school year, and as we look to the end of our 1st term, I would just like to thank everyone for their efforts in making this happen.  A reminder that report cards will be distributed in the middle of November and everyone is welcome to stop in on Wednesday, November 23rd for Parent/Student/Teacher Conferences.  We will be once again emailing out report cards, so if we do not have a current email address please make sure you contact the school to advise.
Our school sports are rolling along and we would like to wish our Bears Football team all the best in the Murray Black Finals coming up, and a reminder that VCI will be hosting the JV Girls AAA Provincial Volleyball Tournament November 24th – 26th. Good Luck!!
A reminder that it is crucial that students attend on a regular basis, with the pace in which course material is covered in our semesterized schedule at VCI, students missing classes puts them at a disadvantage.  Please help keep them attending!!  If we can support in any way – please let us know!
Take Care
Mr. Keown
