Welcome to Assessment Week!
The school calendar changed this year to include a Provincial Assessment Week. The Assessment Week runs from January 21st to January 24th.
Regularly scheduled classes are not in session on these days in order to allow students the time required to complete their Provincial Numeracy and Literacy Assessments.
In order to maximize learning opportunities for all students we have organized a series of sessions throughout the week. Some of the sessions are grade-specific and required for all students while others are designed to provide flexible opportunities to pursue interests, get extra help and complete course and graduation requirements.
Please see below for a list of flexible opportunities by grade. Students are also reminded that this week is an ideal opportunity for students to catch up on late and or missing work.
