Grade 12 Checklist

This EMCS Grade 12 Checklist (updated October 27, 2017) is a month-by-month checklist of important dates and things to do during your Grade 12 year.


Please remember that your school attendance will usually be considered as part of your scholarship and bursary applications. Even if applications do not ask about attendance, any teachers you ask to write reference letters  will likely check your attendance.  Please make sure that parents/guardians contact the office to excuse your absences if you miss school for a legitimate reason.  Absences should be excused in a timely manner.
