On Thursday, January 19th, Moscrop will be hosting our second annual Day of Reconciliation for all grade 10 students. The event will involve grade-wide assemblies, as well as workshops and a luncheon throughout the day for all students. Some of our keynote speakers will include MLA for Vancouver Mt. Pleasant, Melanie Mark; Spoken Word poet Molly Billows; elders – Roberta Price, Carleen Thomas and Sam George; and DJ O Show. We would like to build on the work that we have been doing over the past few years in our school community, and continue our dialogue and engagement concerning current issues facing First Peoples in a meaningful way.
This event is designed to be a time of cultural exchange and a recognition of Indigenous resiliency and strength, as we work to gain greater awareness of current issues facing all Canadians such as the Inquiry of Missing and Murdered Women, land title issues, and the impact of development projects such as Kinder Morgan and Standing Rock in North Dakota. This is going to be an exciting day! We still need volunteers – please contact Alana Sawatsky or Cindy Wong if you would like to be a part of the organizing team.

In preparation for the upcoming course registration for the 2017/2018 school year, Moscrop will be hosting an AP Parent Information Evening. The purpose of this meeting is to give you an overview of what the AP Program is and how it can benefit your child. We offer AP courses in all four major academic areas including social studies, mathematics, languages, and science.
Advanced Placement® courses are college-level courses offered in grades 11 & 12. They can give your child a taste of what college is like and can help him or her stand out on college applications. Not only that, but scoring well on the AP® Exam can get your child college credit, placement out of introductory courses or both, potentially saving thousands of dollars in tuition and fees.
We invite you and your child to attend our AP Night Information Session on Thursday January 19, 2017 from 6:00-7:00pm (in the Multi-Purpose Room) to learn about the AP program at Moscrop. We look forward to sharing information with you and helping you learn how AP can help your child achieve their college and career goals.
Looking forward to seeing you there!
