June Closing Procedures at Lord Byng - IMPORTANT
June is an exciting time for students and families as we finish up the year. Thank you to Parents for an excellent Grad Dinner Dance and Dry-Grad, and also for the much appreciated Teacher Appreciation Lunch!
This message will outline timelines and activities for the final two weeks of June at Lord Byng.
Regular classes continue through Term Three, up to and including June 21st. Teachers are taking attendance, and students are expected to be in classes.
On June 20th, we will have a Carnival Celebration for all students, beginning at lunchtime. Our Student Council, led by Mr. Sandher, has arranged food trucks and games for students to enjoy. NOTE: Our Lord Byng school yearbook will be distributed on the morning of the 20th, and outside the office we have posted the names of all students receiving a yearbook. If your student is expecting to receive a yearbook but the name doesn’t appear on the list, please check with our school accountant as there may be fees owing in the office.
Students planning to complete an online or Summer School course before September should notify their Grade Counsellor as soon as possible or by June 22nd at the latest.
For Grades 10 and 11, Provincial Numeracy Assessments begin on June 22nd and run through the 28th. Students have been assigned a time during which to write, and that schedule has been in our school e-Bulletin and on the website since May 5th when a message was sent out to all Grade 10 and 11 parents/guardians. Unfortunately, we cannot accommodate special time slot requests. Any student not able to write the Numeracy Assessment this June will have another opportunity to do so in June 2019.
All texts and materials should have been returned to teachers by June 22nd.
Most Grade 12 students will be writing one or both of the Provincial exams on Monday, June 25th: English 12 9AM-11AM; First Peoples English 1PM-3PM. All Grade 12 students are invited to the Grade 12 BBQ: offering hot dogs, smokies and veggie dogs, at 11:20 – 12:40 on June 25th – in between the two Provincial Exams.
All students should have their lockers completely empty with lock removed by June 26th. Items left unclaimed in the school after June 28th will be donated to charity. Students are reminded to take their locks with them and not leave them on their locker.
June 22nd through June 28th teachers are in the school invigilating exams and offering students opportunities to complete projects, write call-back exams and capture missing credits whenever possible. Students should make appointments as needed for completion of work, as teachers may be invigilating Provincial Assessments. Additionally, as all marks need to be entered on June 26th for report cards, students should have work completed or should have made all necessary arrangements with teachers before June 25th.
June 28th all Report Cards will be posted to the student portal. Parents/Guardians must work with students regarding passwords and access to the portal.
