Grade 8 information

A+ A-

Current Grade 8 students from Elizabeth Bagshaw, Glen Brae, Lake Avenue, Sir Wilfred Laurier and Remote Schools who have Glendale as their catchment school who are scheduled to attend Glendale in September will be able to access course selections in January.

Thank you for joining us for our Glendale Option Sheet Night on Wednesday, January 20, 2021.  If you missed it, or need to review it again, a copy of the video is located here:

Grade 9 Option Sheet Presentation

This year, students will enter their courses selections directly into Xello.  Use the digital copy of the Glendale Grade 9 Option sheet below to better support your course selection decisions.  Paper copies of the option sheet may be presented to classroom teachers at a later date so that their recommendations can be recorded.

The Student Services Team from Glendale along with the Elementary Student Success Teachers will assist students in February to input their courses into Xello.  You can access Xello through any Grade 8 HUB page.  A video of how to use Xello is available below. The deadline for selecting courses is Friday, February 19, 2021.

Option sheets for ABPA students will be available in February and only to successful students.  Completion of the ABPA option sheet does NOT determine acceptance into the program.
