Mock Literacy Test Results

This week, grade 10 students will be receiving the results of their mock literacy test.  This has been reviewed with them at school, however, we ask parents to please look over the results at home and discuss it with your child.  Students have also received two information sheets with hints and tips for each type of question on the test.  The literacy test will be held province wide on March 27, 2019.  If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Mrs. Oldford at the school.

New Update for Exams and Culminating Tasks

As you are aware, transportation is cancelled again today. Please note that high school exams will now start on Monday, January 28. Students are encouraged to check their class webpages and email where applicable for exam reviews and other course content to assist with exam preparation.

Tomorrow, Friday, January 24, we will run a regular school day where students will complete culminating activities and receive exam reviews. This will allow students the opportunity to see their teachers before exams begin.   If necessary, teachers will adjust culminating activities so that it is reasonable for students to complete the assignment during class tomorrow.

The school is open today and students may attend to complete work.

Please see the amended exam schedule below.

9-12 Culminating Tasks

If students are unable to complete their culminating activities prior to the exam period, they will be given the opportunity to complete any outstanding culminating activities in the afternoons of the exam period (January 24, 25, 28, and 29), under teacher supervision.
Students should first work on the culminating activity that corresponds to the exam they wrote in the morning.
 
For example, if the student has Geography period 1, then they would write the exam on Thursday morning (Jan 24) and complete the culminating on Thursday afternoon. If the student has already completed that culminating they can choose to work on another culminating activity on Thursday afternoon. This will continue through the exam period.
If there are any outstanding culminating activities after exams, students can use January 30th to come in to complete them, as busses are scheduled to run for our grade 7/8 students. In all cases, we will accommodate the students as best as possible and we encourage students and parents to contact teachers directly for further details.
