Year End Bulletin

June 5, 2017

 

 

Dear Parents/Guardians:

 

It’s June, the sun is shining, and school is in session!  Students are expected to be in full attendance until June 22nd.  Our teachers are working hard to ensure the success of our students.  Please take a few moments to review this year-end bulletin and note important dates.

Core Competencies Assessment & Reporting

As you may know, the new curriculum was implemented this year for Grades 8 & 9 in all subject areas.  A component of this new curriculum is the Core Competencies focusing on Communication, Creative Thinking, Critical Thinking, Personal Awareness, Positive Cultural Identity and Social Responsibility.  Though instruction in Core Competencies is taking place in all subject areas, the assessment for these competencies is a student self-assessment.  This assessment is part of the year end reporting process.  We will be retaining a copy of the assessment in student files while the original will be sent home with students.

 

At Kitsilano, the student self-assessment will take place on June 8 & 9.  Grade 8s will complete the assessment in their Applied Design, Skills, and Technology classes.  Grade 9s will complete the in their Science classes.  All students will be reflecting on Self-Regulation:  I can take ownership of my goals, learning, and behavior. 

 

We will be sending the self-assessments home by June 16th.  We will send a Synervoice message at that time so parents/guardians know when to expect these reports to arrive.  Instructions on how to upload the assessments to the MyEd BC Parent & Student Portal will be included.

 

“In Progress/Incomplete” Time (or “I” Time)

As mentioned, the last day of school is June 22nd.  During “I” Time (June 23rd to June 29th), teachers are available to offer support for students who are receiving an In Progress/Incomplete grade (“I).  If you have received an Interim Report indicating your child is receiving an “I”, your child should be taking advantage of this opportunity.  Please ensure your child makes arrangements with their teachers as necessary. 

 

Final Report Cards

Student Final Report Cards will be available on the MyEd BC Parent & Student Portal.  Report Cards will be published by 10 am on June 29th.  Therefore, there will be no Homeroom on June 29th.
