Terry Fox Totals
We would like to thank all of the students, families, supporters and staff and who took part in our school's Terry Fox fund raiser and school run this year. The Terry Fox foundation is an "organization that still embodies the values of its founder; that funds cancer research projects that are innovative and daring; that has become an important part of community-building and fellowship" and your contributions have helped.
Our school raised just over $1700 this year which will help the foundation with their research projects. Way to go everyone!
Please remember to submit your Terry Fox Run/Walk/Bike selfies to the Student Guide Course.
Thanks again to those who participated.
- Waitlist Update
This semester VLC has added in the option for students to select to be placed on a wait list if a course was already full. Students were also placed on the wait list if they selected a course that was not at the appropriate grade level.
After the December 14th application deadline, we started placing students from the wait list into these courses where we could. Students received in an email notifying them if they were placed into their requested course.
At this point, most of our courses are full and it's not likely there will be any significant movement in these courses.
We will be monitoring enrolment in courses regularly and, if space does become available, we will notify students via email up until February 8th that we have placed them in one or more of their requested courses.
Current VLC students should check the Student Guide Announcement for more information.
