Principal's Message

January 2020

Happy New Year Everyone and welcome to a new decade. I hope you had a magnificent break in the past two weeks. We’ve hit the pavement running already and it is only day 2 in January.
Though December was an abbreviated month of school, it was a busy one. Grade 8 students thoroughly enjoyed there trip to Vertigo Theatre. I was pleased to see upwards of 100 parents show up to Connie Jakab’s Mental Wellness presentation, Bring Them Closer. It was an exceptional presentation. ENVOE 8 students went Wall Climbing. We appreciated a great Winter Concert; Band students are congratulated for a fine performance. Grade 9 FSL (French) students enjoyed their trip to the Sports Hall of Fame at COP. We appreciate the spectacular support for the Christmas Hamper campaign once again this year. Christmas Hampers were picked up and delivered on December 17. The Talent Show and Activity day leading up to the Winter break were exceptional.
January 6 kicked off our Basketball Season with try-out at all levels. SWC and JF High School Counsellors will be in to speak with Grade 9 students on January 8. Westcoast Lunch Hour Lessons will begin the week of January13, and run once weekly until the trip departure dates. There is a Quebec Trip Parent Information Meeting on Monday January 13 at 6:30 PM in the Learning Commons. Grade 9 students who are designated to Sir Winston Churchill High School will tour SWC on Thursday, January 16. The next School Council Meeting will be held on Monday, January 20, and will feature Arvin Rajan, Principal of Sir Winston Churchill High School, and Keith Johnson, Principal of James Fowler High School. ENVOE 8 students are X-Country Skiing and ENVOE 9 students are Snowshoeing on Wednesday, January 22. Simon Fraser’s Junior NW Classic Basketball Tournament takes place on January 29-31. Come on out and cheer on the Flames!
Students and teachers have been working hard throughout the fall. On January 31, 2020 we will be publishing Report Cards. In an effort to be more environmentally friendly and fiscally responsible this reporting period, we are asking you to view the report card through the MyCBE/PowerSchool Portal. Once logged in, you will see an additional tab titled “Report Card”. Select this tab to view the report card.
Parents are also free to print the Report Cards at home. Please note that January 31 is a Non-Instructional Day and there is no school for students. I will send out another reminder about Report Cards the week of January 27.
In the CBE we regularly review our policies to ensure we are in compliance with legislation and recent legal decisions. As part of this review, we have determined that to better protect student information, non-legal guardians will no longer have access to student information via MyCBE / PowerSchool. On Jan. 7 at the end of the day, any portal account email address that does not match a legal guardian email address in PowerSchool will receive an email from CBE Communications. The email will indicate that they need to revise their portal login email address to match the email address on the Demographics Verification Form they signed off on and returned to the school in September. To do this they should sign into the portal, select Account Preferences then edit the email field under the Profile tab. This should be done ASAP. Note | the email address cannot be changed via the mobile app.
Thank you for your continued support.
Bruce Johnston, Principal
