Group 1 is back from Mono Cliffs

Our grade 7 students that went up to Mono Cliffs on Monday have arrived back at St. Andrew’s safe and sound.  They will be dismissed at regular time (3:11 p.m.).  If you plan to come to pick them up earlier than that, then we ask that you come into the school and sign them out at the office.

Please see the attached newsletter that was produced for this trip.

Peer Tutoring 2017: looking for tutors and clients

The Peer Tutoring program pairs students with stronger students to work on a particular subject area. Tutoring pairs meet weekly (either before school, at lunch or after school) and can work on class material and concepts, homework and projects, or studying ahead for future assessments. Both clients and tutors can be from any grade level.

Tutoring matches are limited by the number of tutors/clients who sign up, and also available spaces/supervision. Given adequate resources, students can receive tutoring in up to two subject areas; this may be less if matches cannot be made for particular time/subject combinations.

If your child needs support in a core subject (English, French, Math, Science, Social Studies/Geography), please print and complete the client package (PDF), and have them return it to the main office.

If your child could help other students with a particular subject(s), please have them fill out and return a tutor package (PDF).

Note that grade 9 students earn community involvement hours as tutors, while grade 7 and 8 students would receive Scorpion Points (school participation points) for their tutoring contribution.

REMIND messaging

Remind is the way that I send information and notices out to students and their families; info can be received over text message, app notifications, or email. It allows me to send more detailed information directly to the people who need it most! Personal information is all kept private. Please see the handout that your child has, or review the attached documents.

Please note that app use requires data or wifi connection, and standard rates apply for text messaging.
