Mini Night Tonight

The staff of NTCI is pleased to invite you to our annual “Mini-Night” on Thursday, September 26th, 2013.  This evening has been designed to provide you the opportunity to experience an abbreviated version of your son or daughter’s timetable.  As you move from classroom to classroom and meet each of your child’s teachers, you will learn about the main features of the course of study, the teacher’s homework expectations, and the evaluation practices and schemata for each class.  Although this is not a time for personal interviews, if you wish to speak to a teacher on a more personal level, please feel free to request a mutually convenient time to discuss these issues.

We request that you arrive no later than 6:15 p.m. so that you may pick up your child’s timetable and other information in the Student Commons (they will be available between 6:00 and 6:25 p.m.). Please mark this evening on your calendar and plan to attend.

Please note that general parking in the area of Yonge and Eglinton is always a significant problem. We advise travel by TTC.

There is NO parking available at the school.

Do you want to learn more about technology in the classroom? What role does technology play in your child’s courses? What is the school’s policy on technology use by teachers? What about the policy on technology use by students? Can your child have their laptop open during class? What is ‘Moodle’ and who uses it? Our NT teachers will answer these questions and provide a very unique chance to learn about technology at NTCI.
