Principal's Message

Dear Falcon students and families,


We have had an amazing Week of Welcome with our students enjoying many fun activities. It was also great to see our students involved in athletics again at an interscholastic level as both of our football teams and our senior volleyball teams were in action this past week.


This upcoming Wednesday (Sept. 15), we are looking forward to our first "Opportunity Wednesday". This is the first early dismissal Wednesday that will feature academic coaching in every one of our academic departments (Math, English, Social, and Sciences). These early dismissal Wednesdays will have our students finishing their day at 2:17 p.m., busses, however, will not arrive until 3:17 p.m.. Students riding the bus are welcome to take advantage of the academic coaching sessions, study in the library or commons areas, undergo the writing of a missed exams or rewrite exams, or take part in opportunities for life skills learning and peer to peer support activities.


Students will still receive the same number of required hours of instruction as we have manipulated our lunch hour to be slightly shorter. This revised schedule has been implemented at all grade 10 to 12 high schools within EIPS. We are looking forward to leveraging "Opportunity Wednesdays" in a variety of ways as we move forward, and feel strongly that they will be able to provide a lot of support for our students who are struggling with some learning gaps experienced during the tumultuous last year and a half.


As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me.


Ken Wlos

Principal
