Complementary Courses for 2018-2019

The following courses will be offered for the fall and winter of 2018-2019.  The middle years between elementary and high school are an excellent time for students to take some risks as learners and try new learning experiences.  We encourage all of our students to take new risks and expand their thinking and perhaps uncover a passion or talent.

Students entering grade 7

We encourage you to think about the advantages of Band and French as you prepare for high school.

Both courses offer you many high school opportunities and open many doors for you in high school.  Students often get to grade 10 and wish that they had taken these courses or at least one of them in Junior High.  We encourage you to take at least one of Band or French if not both.  Even if students take both Band and French, they will still be able to take at least two additional complementary courses, ( one each term).

As students consider their choices,  do not have any experience, our teachers are dedicated to helping you be new learners and to support you as you grow in new experiences.

Students are to choose one course per term from each section A,B,C.

Example:

Term 1 Fall/Comp. A
Band                                       
Term 2 Spring/Comp. A
Band
Term 1 Fall/Comp. B 
Foods                                      
Term 2 Spring/ Comp. B
Outdoor Education
Term 1 Fall/Comp. C
French                                     
Term 2 Spring//Comp. C
French

Students taking Band and /or French must choose the course for both fall and spring terms.  There is one section of Band and there are two sections of French to choose from.

Students will be selecting courses in Home Logic – if classes are full, students may put their name on a waiting list at the office.   Grade 7 students are asked to email RideauPark@cbe.ab.ca with title Complementary Request.  A well-written request will be considered if space is available.
