We recognize the fundamental importance of the transition between elementary and secondary schools and work closely with Stephen Lewis Secondary School to ensure our grade eight students have a successful grade nine year.
The Guidance Department from Stephen Lewis Secondary School has already had an opportunity to visit our grade 8 classes to share with students about course requirements, course selection and registration procedures. As students begin to work through some of these details, often new questions emerge. To this end, we’re grateful to have the opportunity to host a Grade 8 Student and Parent Information Evening on Wednesday, January 24th at 6:30 p.m. right here at Bakersfield.
Mr. Kenneth Shigeishi, principal of Stephen Lewis Secondary School will provide a short presentation and answer questions from Grade 8 students and parents about secondary schooling generally, and Stephen Lewis Secondary School, in particular. While many students and parents attended the earlier, area-wide information session in November, we are thankful to have Mr. Shigeishi offer this evening for our community, in a smaller, more intimate setting at Bakersfield –particularly at the time when students are engaged in course selection and many questions are likely to emerge. We look forward to seeing you on this evening.
