To All Grade 8 Families,
Next week, the TDSB is hosting four (4) Grade 8 to Grade 9 Transition Information Sessions for parents/guardians of Grade 8 students that will focus on the Top 10 Tips and Considerations in the Transition to High School process. This presentation will supplement the work already taking place through secondary school virtual open houses and at Grade 8 schools.
Presenters will highlight the key practical aspects of the process of transitioning to high school, as well as share the social-emotional factors that often surface with Grade 8 students as part of this transition.
