Grade 5 Student Video

 Dear Parents/Guardians, Staff, and Students:

Obadiah Oickle, one of our grade five students has been selected to create a video for Kids Young Citizens.  The video is a result of his Heritage Fair Project.  Please support Obadiah by visiting the following link, watching his video, and then voting for him to help improve his chances of winning a trip to Ottawa to present his video there.  You may also leave Obadiah a comment on the page.  Please visit http://www.canadashistory.ca/Kids/YoungCitizens/Find-a-Young-Citizen.  Remember to select just the province, and you will find Obadiah’s picture and a link to his video.  Each e-mail will count as a vote.  Thank you.

 

EDUCATION/EARLY CHILDHOOD DEVELOPMENT - FEEDBACK SOUGHT ON SCHOOL ATTENDANCE POLICY

Increasing student success and achievement in the classroom is the focus of a discussion paper on student attendance. 
The Department of Education and Early Childhood Development is asking for feedback from teachers, parents, students, 
administrators and employers about key issues and ideas to help improve overall attendance.   Education and Early Childhood Development Minister Karen Casey says teachers and schools do an exceptional job to support students and their families, but there is a need for improvement when it comes to attendance.  Recent information shows as many as 28 per cent of all 
students missed more than 16 days of school in 2014-15. 

Feedback will be received through an online survey, focus groups, and stakeholder consultations. The survey will be open 
until July 8th. Based on that information, the department will develop a new policy that will be implemented in the fall. 

 

The questionnaire is available at novascotia.ca/education. 

 

TRANSPORTATION FOR NEXT SCHOOL YEAR

As the school year winds down the transportation department is actively preparing for the 2016-2017 school year. For students who will be switching schools next year, please ensure their transportation has been organized. Whether students are moving from Elementary to Middle school or Middle school to High school, it is important to know that their bus stop does necessarily follow them from one school to the next.  To arrange for transportation next school year, please contact Gilbert Jackson, Transportation Analyst, SSRSB at 902-541-8253 (phone) or by e-mail at gjackson@ssrsb.ca.
