Parent Teacher Conferences

The sign up for parent teacher conferences is now live. Please sign into your CBE account to book a time for a conference. Teaching partners will be doing interviews together, so you will have your conference with your child’s humanities teacher and math/science teacher at the same time. If you have any questions, or are unable to book a conference through the system, please email your child’s homeroom teacher.

Before attending conferences, we ask that you are up to date with your child’s marks and comments on PowerSchool. This will make it so we are all current with your child’s learning and can have productive conversations on how we can drive that learning forward. 

Scholastic Book Fair

The school will be hosting a book fair next week. Students who would like to purchase anything from the book fair can bring money during their designated book exchange times next week. Here are the dates that each class will be attending the book fair:

A general reminder that the weather is starting to get colder and snow will soon be on the way. Students will need to be dressed appropriately for the weather, especially when they are going outside for PE and during lunch. Students will only be indoors when the temperature drops below -20. 

Students will be starting a new project on Flipgrid next week. We would like students to bring in their own set of headphones to use for this activity. The headphones can be kept in their backpacks throughout the course of our novel study for various classes where we will be using them. Please try to send them with your child on Monday if possible.

October 15, 2021


  • Monday October 18 is a non-instructional day for students
  • Monday October 18 is Election Day! If you can, please take your children to vte with you so that they can see our democratic system in action. They might even be able to give you insight on who to vote for for city council.

October 8, 2021


As we move into the fall, more students are absent from school for a variety of reasons. We understand that when students are ill they are sometimes too sick to be able to work on school work. However, it is still their responsibility to catch up on the work that they have missed while they were away. 

Students can see what they have missed in class by visiting their Google Classrooms to see what has been posted for that day. They should be reading through any and all information that has been posted and completing the assignments that are posted. Students should be returning to school with some understanding of what was covered while they were away.


The municipal election is approaching. It will be taking place on October 18, 2021. The students are going to be learning about the candidates running for city council in Ward 12 next week. We will end the week by having a student vote in school on October 15. 

As part of their democratic education, we would like to invite parents to bring their grade 6 child with them to the voting station on Monday October 18. This will give them a chance to see democracy in action and understand the voting process for citizens. We understand that this may not be possible for everyone, but if you are willing, please take your child to vote with you.

We will be utilizing Google Classroom as our online learning platform.  Students have been invited to their individual Google Classrooms by their Core teachers.

If you would like to access the classroom, please ask your child to log into their Google Account with you.  This is where all our assignments and daily lessons will be posted.  


All marks and comments will be posted to your child's Powerschool account.  You have access to your child's Powerschool and we encourage you to check it frequently as Core teachers will be updating assignment completion and grades regularly.

Vending machines can be used before and after school and during lunch. They will not be used during nutrition break. Lockers will not be used until further notice, therefore student’s belongings such as backpacks and jackets will hang on their chairs in the classrooms.  Students are permitted to go home for lunch. Please inform the classroom teacher if going home for lunch.

 In Grade 6 this year, students will not be switching classes for various subjects.  All Grade 6 teachers will come to the students with the exception of some CTF classes and PE classes.   All efforts will be made to keep the students in their homeroom cohorts for P.E..  The C.T.F. (Career and Technology Foundations) teachers will travel to the classrooms rather than students moving throughout the school.  Students will also be eating lunch in their classrooms.  There will be break times throughout the day to allow students to move, have a snack, go to the washroom and take "mask" breaks.
