Grade 9 to 10 Transition

We have already began supporting our grade 9 students in their transition to high school! It has been great to see their excitment and answer their questions.

Our grade 9 students have been working on high school information during their Health classes throughout the year to get the started. In February, Mrs. Orr has been speaking to the grade 9 classes about:

  • Graduation requirements
  • Post-Secondary options
  • Different Stream options in core classes
  • Alexander Rutherford Scholarship
  • The importance of options classes for post-secondary, exposure to the world of work, scholarship money
  • Planning with the end in mind

We then took four of our grade 9 classes this week to Fort High for a tour of the facility and to expose them to the many options available in high school; the remaining two classes go next week.

We want to really support this transition so that our students are set up for success for high school, and we are excited to be part of that adventure!

Complete the Returning Student Registration: February 1-28

Elk Island Public Schools’ (EIPS) returning student registration process is open Feb 1. All returning students must complete the online Returning Student Registration Form to confirm their child’s enrolment in a school for the upcoming 2022-23 school year. Additionally, students who want to attend a non-designated school need to make that request through the returning student registration process—acceptance is based on available space. All returning EIPS students are required to complete the form by Feb. 28, 2022.


To access the Returning Student Registration Form, simply log in to the PowerSchool Parent Portal.


If you don’t have a PowerSchool Parent Portal account, you do need to set one up. For help see: Create a PowerSchool Parent Portal account



For more information contact Rudolph Hennig directly at 780-998-2216.

Counsellor Corner - Welcome Mr. Curbelo!

We are excited to announce that our new counsellor will be starting his transition to join Rudolph Hennig, welcome to Mr. Richard Curbelo who is our new full-time counsellor! Mr. Curbelo is student centered and enjoys working with students! Students and staff will see him in the hallways and in classrooms a lot as he works to build connections with our school community.


Mr. Curbelo will be starting his transition to Rudolph Hennig in March, with the goal of him being here full time the second half of March leading up to Spring Break.

Calling in Absences

We have had a high number of unexcused absences lately. From a safety perspective, we require all students who will be absent from school to be excused by a parent or guardian. Please contact the school before school begins if possible. This can be done by:



Moving forward we will be calling the families of students who are away to confirm the absence, but our preference is that families reach out to the school. Thanks for your support with this.

Preparing for the World of Work

1. CAREERS Showcase Agriculture - Plant Systems

March 1, 2022

6:00 pm to 7:30 pm

REGISTER

Grades 9-12 students

Join us to learn more about careers in agriculture, specifically those related to farm to table operations and sustainable produce production. Hear from industry professionals about their personal career journey and what they love most about their work! This will be an informative night with plenty of opportunities to have the industry leaders answer your burning questions and find out how you can get involved in similar opportunities in your community. Make sure to register yourself ahead of time and encourage your friends to do the same. There will be prizes and giveaways for the most active participants.

The agriculture industry is one of the biggest in Alberta and employs thousands of people all over the province in many different areas. Come and learn what it takes to get involved and discover a career that fits your passion.


2. Career Pathways is designed to develop skills that students can apply in their daily lives when preparing for entry into the workplace or for further learning opportunities. Competencies achieved will allow students to make relevant connections with work and/or post-secondary training.

Each month Career Pathways distributes relevant planning material, presentation sessions, occupational spotlights, and other helpful information meant to support students and families. It is our hope students in Junior High begin to understand opportunities available to them and explore and reflect on a variety of experiences to help them plan their next steps. High School students continue to set goals and further develop the skills, knowledge and attitudes that increase their readiness to successfully transition beyond high school.
