Dear Parents/ Guardians of Grade 8 Students,
This is an exciting time of year for our grade eights as they begin to make choices about grade nine. Students will be selecting their secondary school courses online using MyWay, https://myway.wrdsb.ca.
Please find attached a timeline of the course selection process and step by step instructions for using the MyWay site. All students complete their online course selection anytime between Friday, February 17th and Thursday, February 23rd.
School Specific Course Selection Information

All students are to log into MyWay using their regular username and password. Students are encouraged to look at the specific course descriptions and graduation requirements to select their courses. These can be found on each secondary school’s website. Physical and Health Education is strongly encouraged as an elective.
