High School Newsletter – February, 14, 2022

Dear Students and Parents, 

Highlands Nordic Ski Trip Grade 9 

The trip our students have been waiting for is happening! Our students are going to Highlands Nordic for a cross country ski trip! The ski trip’s date is February 18, for grades 8 and 9. 

Grade 9B, if you do not have tournament on that day, please confirm your attendance! 

If your child is not going, please email office@umca.ca. There are no classes on this day for students who are not attending the trip.  

Please arrive not later than 8:50, as we will not wait for late students.  

What to Bring?  

The equipment and a Hot Chocolate will be provided.  

Bring lunch and snack as the cafeteria will be closed and there will be no option to purchase food.  

Wear a jacket that is waterproof and proper for ski (not a fabric jacket that might get wet). Dressing up in layers is recommended. 

Waterproof gloves (no wool/fabric gloves)  

Neck warmer (no scarf)  

A hat  

Waterproof boots.  

Extra socks (particularly important!)  

Please label EVERYTHING as kids tend to lose stuff.  

We will be back around 5:00pm (please do not call the school to check if we arrived, we leave the resort at 3:00pm and arrival time depends on traffic). 

Family Day 

Please note that on Monday, February 21, the school is closed due to Family Day long weekend. 

Report Cards 

Due to technical problems, we experienced delay with report cards emailing, however the issue was fixed, and you should expect an email with your report card attached by the end of this week. 


This is another reminder to return 1st semester’s textbooks if you have not done so yet. 

March Break 

March Break dates are March 14-18.  

Pictures Re-take 

For those who missed our picture day, and the new students who recently joined us, we will have a picture day on March 23. This is the last opportunity to have your picture taken. Please do not miss this day! Please come dressed in your blue UMCA sweatshirt.
