Grad Meeting *POSTPONED*

Good afternoon Parents/Guardians…due to the snowfall over the past 24 hours, we are postponing the Grad 2019 Information meeting to tomorrow (Monday, Jan. 21) at 6pm in the Library.  The school’s parking lots have been cleared of snow, but all entryways and stairwells are still snow covered.  I apologize for the short notice and any inconvenience that this may create.  Following the meeting, I will post all discussion items on the school website in the Grad 2019 section, please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.

Thanks for your understanding.

Grade 9 Parent Info

Good afternoon parents and guardians,
We are quickly approaching the end of the first semester, and for Grade 9 students, this means a lot of firsts. Here is some information that will hopefully help you and your teen navigate through the next couple of weeks:
1. Semester End Assessments – Beginning on Wednesday, Jan 23rd all high school students will be writing final assessments. The schedule for final assessments can be found HERE.  For most Grade 9 courses there will not be a comprehensive final exam. There will,however, be some type of assessment that students will complete during the scheduled time period. Students must remain in the assessment for a minimum of one hour, but will have more time if needed. Teachers will be preparing students for this assessment in the coming days.
2. Study blocks – in the exam schedule there are set study blocks. These periods are not mandatory for students to attend. They are, however, a great opportunity for students to meet up with teachers and ask questions or complete missing assignments.
3. Turn-Around Day – There will be no school on Tuesday, Jan 29 due to a turn-around day. Teachers need to have all exams corrected and marks entered for finals grades. Report cards will also be generated on this day. Students will begin the day on Wednesday, Jan. 30th, in their Christian Ethics class where a copy of their second semester schedule will be given to them, along with their report card.  For Grade 9 students the marks on this report card will represent their mid-term grades, with the exception of Science 90, Physical Education 90, and Math 99. These courses are semesterized, and the mark entered will represent a final grade.
4. Semester 2 – The change of semester doesn’t affect Grade 9 courses too much, however, there are some changes. Students who were in PE in the first semester will now be in Science 90. Those who took Science 90 in the first semester will now be in PE. Students in the Math 99 program will move on to Math Workplace and Apprenticeship 10. All other courses will remain the same.

If you have any additional questions regarding the schedule or expectations, do not hesitate to contact me by phone (306-693-6744) or by email (brad.moser@htcsd.ca).

Have a great weekend!

Vanier Update

Good afternoon parents and guardians.  There are a few items that we would like you to be aware of as we head into the weekend:

  1. Reminder about Grad 2019 Parent Information meeting at 6pm on Sunday, January 20 in the Vanier Library.  Grads are welcome to attend.
  2. We have noticed an increase in the use of Vapes in the school and are quite concerned.  We have developed a new school policy to help address the issue.  This is effective immediately:

    Vanier Collegiate strives to provide a safe, comfortable and healthy environment for all students, staff, community partners, visitors and guests.The school building and surrounding property (including the student parking lot) shall be free from the use of tobacco, tobacco products and electronic “smoking” products (vapes, breezes, e-cigarettes, etc.).In addition, students shall refrain from possessing or using these products while representing Vanier at any school-sanctioned events.

    Violation of this procedure will result in immediate confiscation of products, parent/guardian contact and a warning letter on file.  Subsequent violation may result in suspension.

    Supporting documents:
    HTCSD Administrative Procedure 166 (Oct 2017)

    Saskatchewan Tobacco Control Act (Aug 2010)
  3. Questions about Teen Substance Use?  Get the Facts: Current Drug Trends – Jan. 22, 2019 @ 7pm @ Central Collegiate – more info HERE.
  4. Next SCC Meeting – Monday, Jan. 21 @ 7pm
  5. Semester End Assessment Schedule – more info HERE.

That is everything for now…please do not hesitate to call or email if you have any questions.  Have a great weekend and stay warm!
