Students in grade 9 math have made an information board to show how much sugar is in candy they might find in their treat bags this Hallowe'en. During this critical thinking exercise, they measured out the grams of sugar for each type of candy. This informative board was made by Ms. Donald’s and Ms. Pickstock’s math class.
In order to graduate from secondary school in Ontario, each student must demonstrate proficiency in reading and writing. These skills are assessed through The Ontario Secondary School Literacy Test (OSSLT). The OSSLT is scheduled annually by EQAO. This year's test will be March 27, 2019.
Most grade 10 students and some grade 11 students will be writing the test this year.
You can find out more information about the OSSLT in this document. We will have student preparation sessions scheduled throughout the rest of the semester and into semester 2.

We have learned that is was recently announced that Ms. Amber Clarke's Deep Learning Exemplar submission has been selected as ONE OF THE FIVE CANADIAN submissions that will be sent forward for GLOBAL MODERATION.
New Pedagogies for Deep Learning (NPDL) project exemplars from across the county were submitted to the leads for review. Amber’s submission will be moderated by a team of international educators in the near future. Amber’s project now will be used to provide clarity to other teachers seeking to understand what deep learning is and how it can be implemented across grades and subject areas. Amber’s project was highlighted and the recognition means that her “work in this area has contributed to our collective learning and understanding of how deep learning is supporting students in their acquisition of global competencies and also allowing them to be truly engaged in their learning while making a difference in their local and/or global communities.”
