Semester 2 and Qtr. 3 Begin Feb 1!

On Tuesday we begin semester 2 for grades 9 - 12 and quarter 3 options for grades 7 & 8!

Please note that our grades 9 - 12 semester 1 report cards will be live on PowerSchool and available for viewing through the report card link in the Parent Portal on that day as well. Our Grade 7 and 8 current course marks need to be accessed through PowerSchool as per usual, as they are year-long continuing courses.

Course and Option Change Requests

We know that there are always changes that students want to make on their timetables at the beginning of the new semester. We will be handling these changes during the following times:

Feb 1st:

  • Grade 10-12 Courses @ Lunch Time
  • Grade 9 Option Change Requests @ Lunch Time

Feb 2nd:

  • Grade 7-8 Option Change Requests @ Lunch Time

Please note that Option Changes are not always possible given the limited number of spots in certain courses. We will strive to do our best to meet the needs of each of our students. Grade 7-9 students wanting to switch options will be asked to attend their originally scheduled options for Feb 1.

Let your voice be heard!

It is time again for the EICS Assurance Survey! As part of the Elk Island Catholic School Assurance process, we would like to invite you to participate in a survey being sent to you through an email. Results from this survey will be used to inform planning at the school and divisional level for the 2022/2023 school year. This survey is provided to all grade 4-12 students, all staff, and all parents in our division.

Thank you for your participation.

If you have a child in grade 7, or 10, you may receive a survey from Alberta Education. If so, we would encourage you to complete both surveys.

The survey will remain open until Thursday, February 18, 2022.
