June 4, 2021, Update

Christina Powers, Secondary School Principal

The School Year is quickly coming to an end with only 8 days remaining to the school year. The last day of school is June 16th where we will end with an assembly in order to wish everyone a great summer.

As we begin to wrap up the school year, I would like to remind those who can return to any borrowed books or ISY resources to the school.  We understand if this is not possible for some families. If this is the case for you, please communicate with your child’s classroom teacher or the school library. 

Quarter 4 Report Cards

Students’ report cards will be made available through PowerSchool on June 15th in the afternoon. Please take a moment to review your child’s reportcard and engage in meaningful discussions regarding their progress  You will note that the last quarter of the school year does not entail any comments. This is done intentionally as there is no time left in the year to make improvements. Grade 11 students as they are in a two-year program will have comments for their report.  It is without a doubt that this quarter has been difficult for our students as they brave the uncertain times.  If you have questions about the report, please contact the classroom teacher. Teachers will be available on Wednesday, June 16th to answer any questions. After June 16th many teachers will be traveling and may not be available to respond.

Service Learning Celebrations

This past Wednesday the Secondary School celebrated the accomplishments of our service-learning groups. Below are a few highlights of the assembly

  • Throughout the school year, over 15 Service learning groups persevered through the challenging times meeting and planning weekly.
  • Many of our Service Learning groups contained students in Middle School and High school allowing for better school-wide collaboration.
  • In spite of not being able to physically take action due to covid and the political situation, the majority of SL groups made progress on their goals through creative means.
  • Service-learning continues to be strong in spite of the obstacles that were faced. 

Our secondary students have been impressive as they continued to meet, collaborate and plan throughout the school year. Their dedication and perseverance demonstrate the level of commitment of our students.
