Parent Council

As a school council member, you can help your council discover new and exciting ways to contribute to the education of students in your school. School Councils A Guide for Members  is your source. Education is a partnership involving parents, students, teachers, principals, school boards, government, and the community. Your involvement in the council gives you the opportunity to strengthen that partnership, and to be part of a dedicated team working to ensure a high quality of education and an accountable education system for the children of Ontario. Your participation can make a difference!

Examination Schedule
As with exams, summatives are also mandatory components of course evaluation- accommodations  for summatives/exams cannot be made save for medically or legally documented issues. Please emphasize dates/times with your son/daughter to ensure no exam opportunity is missed. Room locations will be issued closer to the exam period. There has always been at least one instance where a student "got the date/time wrong." Let's avoid any unnecessary anguish! Exam Schedule.doc

Numeracy Lunch and Learn
Dear Parents/Guardians,
Mrs. O’Leary, our Grade 9 Applied math teacher, is working diligently with your child to ensure his/her success in the course.  In support of this effort, we are offering an opportunity for her students to take part in a Lunch and Learn Program, which will take place once each week for thirteen weeks during the year.  This lunch program has been designed to practice numeracy skills required for the course work, final math exam and EQAO Gr. 9 Applied Assessment of Mathematics.  
All students, across the province, enrolled in a Grade 9 Applied or Academic Mathematics, are required to participate in EQAO’s Gr. 9 Assessment of Mathematics which measures students’ achievement of the Grade 9 mathematics expectations.  In fact, of the 30% allocated to the Summative Assessment in Grade 9 Mathematics, 10% is based on their score on the EQAO Assessment.  
During the Lunch and Learn Program one skill will be reviewed plus a practice booklet and pizza lunch will be provided, at no charge to the students.  Mrs. O’Leary and senior students will be present to provide students with extra support and guided practice of the skills required by the assessment. Your child will benefit greatly from participating in these sessions.

We are asking for your support by encouraging your child to consistently attend each of these sessions which begin Thursday October 27th at lunchtime in room 203.
Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions you may have regarding this valuable program.  Thank you for your ongoing support.
Jennifer Ladouceur
