High School final exams are coming up December 16-20! Please click on the following links to view the grade specific exam schedule: Grade 9 Schedule, Grade 10 Schedule, Grade 11 Schedule, Grade 12 Schedule. Thank you for encouraging your children to prepare well for these exams 🙂
Since Monday, December 16 is designated as a study day, we will have study groups, study halls, and teachers available for study helps at MAK to help students prepare for their finals. Alternatively, students could also choose to study at home and use online tools to connect with teachers during that day. As parents, you can decide where your child will study on December 16.
Here are the instructions we gave to High School students:
1) If you are on campus, you must be in the designated study hall location.
2) You are not required to be at school except for exams, so if your parents want to bring you late/pick you up early, that is fine. (But you cannot leave in the middle of the day and return.)
3) You may NOT leave campus without your parents picking you up unless you are taking the normal bus.
4) Snacks will be provided on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday from your parents/PAC. Enjoy the brain boost!
If you have any questions, please contact Mrs. Griffin at email@example.com. Happy studying!
- 家長和 PAC會在周二，週三和周四提供點心。請享受提供的點心！
如有任何疑問，請聯絡Mrs. Griffin (firstname.lastname@example.org)。 學習愉快！
