Math On-line Resources

Dear Parents/Guardians:

As we approach the time of the school year when students start their preparation for end of year exams, we thought it an ideal time to share some resources available through the Newfoundland and Labrador English School District.

The District has been working with teachers to build online self-assessment tools that allow students to practice and test their abilities with aspects of the math curriculum. Resources are available for Math 7 and Math 8, as well as Math 1201 and 2201, and can be accessed through the District website: www.nlesd.ca. From there, students can visit two sites for self-assessment resources.

The District’s Moodle website has practice resources including unit reviews, tests and videos. These are dynamic tools that students can use multiple times with different questions. Students require an online student Google account (@nlesdonline.com) from their school and can request one should they not already have such an account.

As well, the District’s Mathematics YouTube channel has similar online tools students can use to further help them practice and understand the topics being discussed in the classroom. The videos used on the YouTube channel have been made by educators throughout the District and provide great examples of the units covered.

We highly encourage your family to take advantage of these online resources as additional tools to help your child prepare for the upcoming exam period. The District will be continuing to update the pages so we also encourage you to periodically review them for new online resources.

Should you have any questions about these resources, please feel free to contact the school.

Sincerely,

Wayne Rodgers
Principal

Possible Pip Day for today, Monday, May 30th.

Good morning parents,

This is Monday morning, May 30th. It has come to our attention that some Grade 12 students have organized a pip off day for today. This is a non-sanctioned event and strongly frowned upon. As a school, we are quite disappointed as we had scheduled a celebratory year end assembly for third period today in which a number of students were being recognized for their achievements and a number of parents had planned to be in attendance. To avoid embarrassment, we have decided to postpone our assembly to a later date. All teachers have been instructed to carry on with full instruction for all classes today. We ask you to check to ensure your child is in attendance today and is not engaged in any risky behaviours that may result in negative consequences. Some rumours include Grade 12 students showing up for the morning but then leaving sometime throughout the day. We are especially concerned with the possibility of a scavenger hunt as in past years this has caused some disruption to our community and neighboring schools. If this does indeed happen, and any student engages in an activity that results in disruption or causes embarrassment to our school, then that student may face disciplinary action. Similar consequences may be extended to any student who plays a role in organizing this event.

Thank you for your support and understanding and please encourage your child to make every effort to attend our final 10 teaching days of school.

Wayne Rodgers
Principal
