Grade 8 Information Nights Coming to KPR High Schools

Each year, students and their families are invited to our secondary schools for Grade 8 Information Nights, to learn about each school’s programs and opportunities, meet school staff and tour the buildings. This year, as we have all had to do with so many aspects of our work and personal lives, we had to rethink Grade 8 Information Nights, and come up with new ways to share information with families.

KPR secondary schools are creative, innovative places and they have come up with interesting ways to connect with Grade 8 students and families. From Google portals to Edsby discussion groups to virtual classroom visits, every school is reaching out to Grade 8s and their families in multiple ways. 

Information on our secondary schools also is available on their websites, 24/7.  Please visit the Find a School page for contact information and website links for each school.
