As we wind down the last week of classes before the Winter Break, I’d like to take this opportunity to wish you & your families a peaceful and joyous holiday!  We look forward to coming together as a school community on Friday, December 21st, to celebrate a long standing Abe tradition . . . Turkey Fest!  Classes will end at noon and staff and participating students will enjoy a turkey dinner, catered by the Culinary Arts students at James Fowler High School.  One of our entrepreneurial students, Sedrica Doerksen, will also be selling homemade sweets at the event so bring some pocket change if you have a sweet tooth!

Students are encouraged to take a healthy brain break over the holidays. When we return from Winter Break, there is a week of classes from Monday, January 7th to Friday, January 11th followed by the exam period (January 14th – 30th).   There are no exams on January 17th and 18th.  These are optional “flex days” where students have the opportunity to plan how they will use their time in the most constructive way to meet their individualized learning needs.  To allow students to make informed choices, each discipline will provide a schedule of learning opportunities such as tutorials, review sessions and study skills workshops which will be posted to the web site and in the school.  Students Report cards will be available in PowerSchool on Thursday, January 31st and will only be printed if requested.  The January report card will provide a summative grade for each course completed in Semester 1. 

Once again, I wish you a wonderful holiday & look forward to welcoming the students back in 2019!​

Sincerely,

Tamie Annis-Johnson

Over the course of the 2019-20 school year, we will continue to have conversations with students, parents, and staff to learn from their experiences and to seek their input and suggestions for improvement https://t.co/1dxVU6AFky #yycbe

There are no classes for students on Friday Oct 11 because it is a system-wide non-instructional day. All schools and offices are closed on Monday Oct 14 for Thanksgiving. Have a fun and safe long weekend! #WeAreCBE https://t.co/bDHlmyqQn6
