We gratefully acknowledge, respect, recognize and appreciate that we live, learn and work and teach on the traditional territories of the Kwanlin Dun First Nations and the Ta'an Kwächän Council. Shä̀wnítha / Shro neethun
Grade 10 - 12 students are familiar with the Sr/Jr assemblies that we have each semester. These are opportunities for the administration to touch base with the students, remind them of expectations and inform them of any new policies, procedures or share information important to the rest of the semester.
With the gathering restrictions currently in place, this year we did not do assemblies. The administrators filmed the slide show and commentary and students saw the videos in their classrooms.
In the event that a student was absent, or missed information, I'm posting this here for reference.
We're detectives not mind readers. Please remember to give us the evidence of your learning, skills and practice so that you get full credit for your effort, skills, knowledge and improvement!
How to make the best use of this website?
Suggestions on using this website:
Main landing page:
General information for students (and their parents) for all subject areas and grade levels.
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.
