Community Time

This week's community time, students participated in extended advisory where grades 6 and 7 investigated careers and grade 8s explored the transition to grade 9. Next week's community time will be used for our Common Writing Assessment.


Common Writing Assessment

Next Wednesday during our last block and Community Time, students will participate in the Common Writing Assessment. This assessment helps measure student growth in writing since the beginning of the year. Students will go to their advisory classes and complete a piece of writing according to a prompt they will be given. We're looking forward to seeing how our young writers have developed over the year!


Interim Reports

Please note that interim reports will be sent home this week. Interim reports serve as an 'early warning' for students who are not achieving proficiency in their subject areas. If your child receives an interim report, please talk to them about it and devise a plan for success together. Remember to include attending our after school Study Hall sessions as a part of your success plan! These are Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday from 3:30-4:30 and Wednesday from 2:30-4:30.
