Hello to our new Grade 8 students, David Thompson's Grad Class of 2024!


As you know your Gr. 8 year will begin on September 3rd.  Gr. 8 students are to report to the gym no later than 10:00 am on September 3rd for your New Faces Leaders (NFL) orientation which will help make your transition to high school a positive one.  Grade 8’s, please check the homeroom assignment lists in the main gym to confirm your homeroom assignments. 

Following your NFL welcome session in the gym from 10:00 – 12:00 pm there will be a pizza lunch for our new Grade 8 students in the cafeteria from 12:00 – 1:00 pm.  At 1:00 pm our senior students will then guide Grade 8 students to their Homeroom Class.  During Homeroom you will receive further information about your timetable, locker assignments, school fees, and Wednesday, September 4th’s Photo Day.  Students will be dismissed from September 3rd’s homeroom class at 2:30 pm.  ​

Please note that school fees for Grade 8’s are $40 ($30 basic fee plus one school lock for the PE locker@ $10 each).  A lock will be provided by the school for your hallway locker.  School fees can be paid in two ways, (1) in-person during homeroom class the first week of school, or (2) paid directly by clicking on the “Pay a School Fee” link on our website at  If paying by cheque, please print the following on the back of your cheque:  student name, student number (if known), and homeroom (if known).
