Ministry of Education Satisfaction Survey 2013
Parents of Grade 10 or 12 THSS Students
As a parent of a grade 10 or 12 student here at Thomas Haney Secondary we invite you to participate in a satisfaction survey to provide the school with valued feedback. The survey takes about 5 minutes to complete. Parents can complete the survey by going to the website (www.bced.gov.bc.ca/sat_survey/access.htm) and accessing the survey by using the logon number. Logon numbers are randomly generated for each survey participant. The logon number cannot be linked to any individual. It is used only to provide participants with the correct survey form, and to associatetheir responses with their school. Parents can either stop by personally or send their son or daughter to the office to pick up further information and a Logon number. Parents may access the survey until March 31st, 2013. Extended to Apr. 30th, 2013.
Thank you for taking the time to complete the survey your efforts are greatly appreciated.

Due to several cost pressures beyond our control, School District 42 is estimating that it will be facing a budget funding shortfall for 2013/2014. We have launched a survey that will help us determine your budget priorities and thoughts regarding the Board's revenues and expenditures.
Your feedback is crucial: your participation will help ensure that budget priorities encompass the most pressing needs of our school district. Please complete the survey at https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/201314BudgetSurvey

The counselors will be starting their visits to all English classes later this week and next week. This year we will be handing out course selection forms to all students in their English classes which will have their course selection password on it. Course booklets will be posted on the school website this week. We will not be providing booklets for any students.
Students may complete their online course selections at home with parents, OR when Counsellors call students down by grade during the week of March 11-15. As in the past, students may go online and change their selections as often as they wish until Friday April 5. After that date selections will be considered late, and students will have to come to the counsellors offices to do their selections.
You can help us greatly by:
- Reminding your son or daughter(s) that attendance in English class next week is critical to getting the course selection information they need.
- Reminding your son or daughter(s) that the Counsellors would like to collect all of their signed course selection forms (signed by them and a parent). Forms can be dropped off in the counseling area, or collected in TA .
- Reminding your son or daughter(s) of the April 5 deadline for course selections.
Requests for spaces are coming in fast. Don't forget to click the "Gr 8 Laptop Pod" link at the top of our website for more information and to get your name on the list.
