We are completing the first semester and many grade 9 – 12 students are working on final assessments. Report cards for grade 9 – 12 will be posted on the parent portal on Friday, Feb. 8, 2019.
We have some new staff have joined our Landmark Collegiate team. Mr. Brock Martens will be taking over from Mr. Tessman and Ms. Cyndal Kiesman will be teaching half time for Ms. Penner. I know they both will quickly come to know the support this community provides all of us at LC in delivering a great education.
Ms. Penner and Mr. Wallace will each being doing half time guidance as Ms. Funk officially begins her position as principal of the Niverville High School.
A new semester of learning will begin on Feb. 4. Aside from the in class learning, Landmark Collegiate is providing a number of extracurricular learning events.
