Message from the Office

Dear Parents & Students,


Just a reminder that our students will be having and afternoon of fun on Halloween day. In light of world events in the last few years we find that the concept of war and terrorism is much more predominant than it was in the past.


As parents, you may soon be purchasing or creating costumes for this event; however, as a school, we would ask that the children do not come in costumes that represent violence or war and also ask that they do not bring props that represent weapons of any sort.


God Bless

Insight Testing

Dear Parents,


Insight is a group-administered test of cognitive abilities, which will be administered to all grade 5 and 8 classes in the first week of November. The assessment is designed to measure cognitive abilities including reasoning, comprehension, memory, and visual/auditory processing.


Students do not need to study for this type of assessment, and the results are not used to evaluate their school achievement. The results provide information to help teachers recognize student strengths and plan for additional supports as needed.


If you would like to learn more about this assessment tool, please visit http://www.canadiantestcentre.com and select the Insight tab near the top of the page. While there you may also want to look into the CAT-4 academic assessment tool, which will be used to measure overall academic ability of Grade 4 and 7 students in the spring.
