Grade 9 Open House & Registration for ELCHS
Posted on March 5th, 2018
Parents of Grade 9 Students
In order to prepare students for the transition to grade ten at École Secondaire Lacombe Composite High School, grade nine classes will be receiving registration information in April. At that time, students will be introduced to a variety of core, CTS and Fine Arts course offerings at LCHS, as well as the upcoming registration process.
A copy of the 2018-19 Program and Course Information Student Handbook, which contains the information mentioned above, will be given to each student during the presentation. Please watch for this registration information to come home by mid-April. Your student should be discussing course selections with you, and filling out the appropriate form in the back of the handbook.
Parents wanting more information on this process are invited to attend a similar session during our Open House for all grade nine students and their parents. The Open House, which takes place on Thursday, April 19th from 5:00 to 8:00 PM, will give you the opportunity to familiarize yourselves with the school and available courses. The Parent Registration Information Session is intended for parents only, and will take place in the Performing Arts Area, Room 1160, from 6:00 to 7:00 PM.
Grade nine students and their parents will complete the student’s registration at LCHS on the evenings of April 25th and April 26th . All Grade nine to Grade ten registrations will be done on those evenings, from 4:30 PM to 7:00 PM. Please bring the completed course selection form from your student handbook with you. We recommend that last names beginning with A-L attend the April 25th session, and that last names beginning with M-Z attend the April 26th registration session. This will help prevent long wait times. Course selection is NOT first come, first served. The master timetable is made up after all students (Grades 10 – 12) have selected courses and is based on course requests. Therefore, it does not matter if you are the last family to select courses on April 26th – all requests will be scheduled together.
If you require more information about the registration process, please feel free to contact the High School. To arrange bus transportation for high school, parents can access the Bus Application Form at https://www.wolfcreek.ab.ca/services/transportation/bus-application-form. On behalf of the LCHS staff, we look forward to meeting you and your student during our Open House and registration evenings.
