PCSS Important Dates & Upcoming Events - Semester 1
Welcome Back, Rams!
Students are back in full-time, in person classes as of August 23rd, 2021 at 8:40 am.
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 Cafeteria Food Service should be open a in early September.
In the meantime, there will be pizza lunches available. 🍕Pizza purchases are cash 💰 only. (There is an ATM in the front foyer of the school.)
1 slice = $3 2 slices = $5 3 slices = $8
Typically up for purchase:
Pepperoni & Cheese
Back together - but not too close!
We're back together to learn. That being said PCSS has an active operational plan that requires that students spread out to use available space in classrooms, wear masks in common areas (i.e. the Library, the Cafeteria except when eating, and in the hallways) and distance 2m / 6 ft whenever possible.
Students should stay home/be kept home if feeling unwell.
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.
