Hello & Welcome to our Student Services Page! 

Preliminary Course Selection Process ~ Dec'17
With the MMR & LBP Communities coming together in September'18, we want to elicit student voice in our Course Offerings for 2018-19.  We will do this through a Preliminary Course Selection Process, where students will choose the courses they wish to take for next year.  From this process, we will remove courses that were not highly subscribed and create the final list of Courses Available for the Second Course Selection Process that occurs in February.  

Please discuss each of the options available for your child for this process.  To help make the most informed choices for next year, the following resources will be in the package students receive at school:

 
Additional Notes:
  • Please bring your signed and completed Course Selection Sheets to school for Dec 18'17.
  • Course Descriptions are listed here:  Course Descriptions (Please note these course descriptions are in the process of being updated to include both L.B. Pearson and M.M. Robinson Course Offerings)
  • Are you interested in taking an eLearning Course?  See the courses available here:  eLearning HDSB
  • Other Resources to help you in making informed decisions are located below in the folders.
If you have any questions, please contact your Guidance Counsellor.

Future Grade 9s - Course Selection Process
Your current Elementary School will be distributing all of the Course Selection Materials for our future grade 9 students. Each elementary school will determine the date by which the Course Selection Forms need to be returned, prior to our MMR & LBP Student Services coming to each school to help students enter in their selections before the end of January.

If you have any questions, please consider joining us on January 11th at 6:30pm for the Course Selection Information Session.
