Kindergarten to Grade 7 Program

There are 2 options for our K to Grade 7 Program:

  • 1-Day Cohort (Thursdays)
  • 2-Day Cohort (Mondays and Tuesdays)

Our Kindergarten to Grade 7 Program is based around a blended learning model. This means students attend classes on site as well as complete some of their learning at home. The 1-day cohort will cover about 20% of the curriculum at school and about 80% at home.  The 2-day per week cohort will run similarly but with about a 40/60 split in terms of curriculum. Learning plans are created in meetings between the teacher, parents and students in September outlining work to be completed throughout the term. Parents and students also meet with teachers during each reporting period (portfolio review) to discuss progress and set directions for the following term.

There will be an optional day for both cohorts on Wednesday.  On Wednesdays throughout the year we will have optional activities for students such as field trips, tutorials, science labs, and workshops for parents.  A schedule of the upcoming activities will be developed and posted in advance.

 

Grade 8 and 9 Program

Students in Grade 8 and 9 will be part of a 2-day per week cohort on Mondays and Tuesdays.

Our Grade 8/9 program is a blended learning model. Students will learn their course content through both online courses and face-to-face classes that will happen on site. Face-to-face classes will occur on Mondays and Tuesdays. There will be two semesters: September to January and February to June. During the morning students will have regular blocks of Math, Science, Socials and English along with rotating blocks of other subjects – such as French, Physical Health Education and Careers. These classes may take the form of tutorials, labs, lessons, etc. Students will continue to work on their online courses from home during the week. Assignments can be submitted online. Students will have teacher-support during the week via email and course messaging.

Monday and Tuesday afternoons, students will be learning the fundamentals of Design Thinking in the afternoon. This involves lots of hands-on learning and opportunities to work in various areas of the Art and ADST (Applied Design Skills and Technology) Curriculum such as robotics, woodworking, textiles, entrepreneurialism etc. These courses will also have an online component.

There will be an optional day for Grade 8 & 9 on Wednesdays.  On Wednesdays throughout the year we will have optional activities for students such as field trips, tutorials, science labs, and workshops for parents.  A schedule of the upcoming activities will be developed and posted in advance.
