Grade 12 News:
 
Below please find some reminders and updates.
 
  1. The Grad Page on the Magee Website is being updated. There still are some “remnants of past” years, but I’m hoping that by the end of next week it will all be “ours”! That will be my main “posting area” so please make sure to check often. That doesn’t mean that I won’t send emails ( which I also hope to update shortly) and post on Facebook, but check the Grad Page frequently- There you will find the updated “Brag Sheet”, Scholarships, Monthly Checklist, Post-Secondary Visits and Info and much more. For instance, I have a glossary of Post-Secondary Terms to help you better understand some of the “lingo” on applications and on Post Secondary websites.
