new curriculum parent information- Looking ahead to report cards
As communicated in the spring we are in the process of implementing new curriculum in three courses: Physical Education and Wellness, English Language Arts and Literature as well as Mathematics.
Along with many of the same knowledge and skill outcomes as in our former curriculum, these courses come with new content and skills that require additional background work to ensure students have the exposure and practice to successfully interact with their new grade level expectations. On the upcoming report cards, students will receive a level of achievement based on the new curriculum outcomes.
Parents can support their children with the expectations of any of the new curriculum in similar ways to their support in the past. Read with children and ask questions about what they noticed in the text, what they wonder about, and what they might want to explore further. Take opportunities to ask math questions when cooking or shopping, or when you are out walking. After walking or engaging in a physical activity, ask questions about how the activity impacts their physical and mental feelings. These all bring awareness to the connection between curriculum and our lives outside of school which will enhance students’ abilities to engage with their school work.
reporting student illness absentee
As you have no doubt been watching and experiencing, Alberta has been suffering from high rates of RSV, Influenza and COVID-19. We want to thank you for making the right choice to keep your children home when they are experiencing symptoms. In order to help us have the best possible data and communicate with Alberta Health Services if required, we would ask that you report any flu or cold like symptom under the FLU heading in the School Messenger App. Please report absences to the office or through the School Messenger App.
Using Safe Arrival, parents can report:
FLU - Illness due to flu and cold like symptoms
ILL - Other illness or injury.
EXC - Parent Excused (i.e taking your child on a holiday)
Thanks for your attention to this matter, as always, we are working hard to ensure that all students and staff remain safe.
