Term 2 Reports

Term 2 Reports will be sent home on Thursday, March 17. Please take the time to review your child’s report card and the comments made by his/her teachers. Some students are experiencing difficulty attaining the curriculum outcomes in some subject areas and will need to increase their marks in order to experience success. Teachers will continue to review student performances to identify at-risk students and make contact with these homes.

Parent teacher interviews are scheduled for Wednesday, March 23 from 12:30 – 4:00 pm and 6:00 – 8:00 pm and are by appointment only. As of 2:30 pm on March 17, appointments can be made using the Parent Interview website. You can book three (3) interviews per child.

 A letter with instructions on how to book your interviews is forthcoming. If you do not have access to the internet you may book an appointment by calling the toll-free number that will be listed on the information sheet. To accommodate these interview sessions, students will be dismissed at 11:15 am on March 23.

We look forward to seeing you.


Along the Coast of Spain and Portugal 2017

 

IMPORTANT NOTE: Due to an apparent lack of interest in this tour at this time I would ask that interested parties refrain from enrolling. I will look into alternate tours in the near future. My apologies to those affected by this change in plans. 

Students currently enrolled in Grade 7 and 8 are being offered the opportunity to travel to Portugal and Spain during the Easter Break 2017. This trip is an 11 day tour starting in Lisboa and finishing in Barcelona with lots to see and do in between. The dates for this tour are from Friday Apr. 14, 2017 - Monday Apr. 24, 2017.  As a result students will miss one instructional day of school.
This tour has already been approved by the NLESD. 

This is a custom tour and the cost is determined based on the total number of participants. For more information about this tour please click here: Along the Coast of Portugal and Spain 2017

(Please note that District policy prohibits fundraising for this type of tour)

Trail of the Caribou 2016: Beaumont-Hamel to Amsterdam

An incredible journey lasts a lifetime in the many stories and pictures you bring home. Get ready for a trip that will change your life and teach you to experience the world around you with more independence, confidence and knowledge. This nine day tour travels through Belgium, France and The Netherlands.

At the Beaumont-Hamel Memorial in France, a great bronze caribou overlooks a deadly battleground where the Royal Newfoundland Regiment launched their offensive on the first day of the Battle of the Somme, July 1, 1916. At the base of the memorial, three bronze tablets carry the names of brave Newfoundlanders who gave their lives in the First World War. The spectacular memorials and cemeteries, including Menin Gate and Tyne Cot, are symbols of the sacrifices of our ancestors and the respect Europeans have for Canada.
