PCSS Important Dates & Upcoming Events - Semester 1
Previous Heads Up!
January & February
Welcome to Semester 2
Semester 2 classes begin on Monday, January 18th.
Please be sure that you have your most recent and accurate copy of your Semester 2 timetable, and know what classrooms you need to be in for which periods on Day 1 and Day 2 respectively.
Semester 1 Report Cards Mailed Home
At the end of January/early in February, the super heroes in the main office will have compiled all of the final summative reports from teachers of Semester 1 courses, and will be mailing home the report cards.
After that, it is in the hands of the mail system.
Please be patient! Like all of us these days, mail carriers are doing the best they can!
Please also make sure that your most current (and accurate) mailing information is on file with the school. Hint: this is a great time of year to make sure that your best email address(es) and phone numbers are also current and accurate.
Students in grade 10 and upwards should check the lists on the wall on the ramp by the Main Office to determine: a) ... if they need to write one of the assessments b) ... where/when they need to be to write one of the assessments.
Mr D Susin and his intrepid Foods Studies students need a couple of weeks to get their initial preparation (including Food Safe certifications) complete before they start preparing snacks and lunch items.
The food cart will resume its daily rounds in early February.
In the meantime, there will be at least one pizza lunch available on Friday, January 22nd: 1 slice = $3 2 slices = $5 3 slices = $8
Find your / your student's class webpage by clicking on the Courses tab in the top of the main page. There will be a drop down menu that lists current classes and pages. You may want to bookmark the class page specific to your class/your student's class.
Look for what we're currently working on in class - great way to start conversations about learning.
Look for due dates and deadlines
Look for class activities, class visitors, events etc.
Please note that each class also has a section's Google Classroom where the instructor will post assignments and where teachers, EAs, and students can communicate in a privacy-protected digital extension of the physical classroom.
The Dear Parents & Students page includes observations and information on a range of educational and education-related topics of interest.
I work to keep the website updated on a weekly basis, but it takes a back seat to day-to-day classroom work.
Some materials that are used in the classroom are copyrighted and cannot be shared online, unless on Google Classroom (or a similar password protected school-managed site).
Access to this website provides information, some documentation and some supplementary information.
It does not substitute effectively for regular attendance and participation in the classroom.
