The beginning of November marks the half way of our semester. It continues to amaze me how fast the school year progresses.
Parent teacher interviews have come and gone and report cards will be finalized in the coming weeks. Be sure to ask your child for their report starting Friday November 15th.
UCC will celebrate Remembrance Day with a reverent and moving ceremony thanks to the help of Mr. Dula, Ms. Mitchell, Mr. Zimmer and various student’s active participation. Our school community will have a chance to gather as a school family, reflect on the past, and remember the sacrifices of so many. We are blessed to know and enjoy many freedoms today as a result of the service of many before us.
Numerous staff have been engaged in professional development opportunities to learn from their peers and by the support offered from our curriculum team. Department improvement is being shared on how to improve achievement, close the gap between academic and applied success as well as exploring opportunities to solve real life problems through experiential learning. All of these actions are part of supporting the SCCDSB strategic plan of; Learning together today, transforming tomorrow! We all want to see the intellectual engagement of our students.
With just over ten weeks until final exams, there is still time for improvements in achievement, participation in extra-curricular events and positive relationships to be developed. I continue to encourage parents to have conversations with your children to remain knowledgeable as to how their year is progressing. I urge you to keep in contact with teachers and administration should concerns arise. Watch our school calendar for important dates to join us throughout the year.
We are pleased with the amazing work being done by staff and students and thank you for your support along the way. Enjoy the rest of the semester.
Lancer Loud. Lancer Proud!
