Health Canada Survey

Our school has been chosen to take part in Health Canada's 2014/15 Canadian Student Tobacco, Alcohol and Drugs Survey (CSTADS).  CSTADS asks students questions about tobacco use, bullying, mental health, and school connectedness.  In Nova Scotia, the survey will be implemented by Dalhousie University and the University of Waterloo.

On February 10, 2015, students in Grade 6 to 12 with parental permission will take part in the survey.  The school will receive school-specific results and a $100 honorarium by participating the survey.

Please visit the project at cstads.ca for more information or call 1-855-494-8855.

Middle School Grade Reconfiguration

Dear Parents and Guardians,

You may be aware that the CBVRSB has approved a grade reconfiguration for schools within its region.  In September 2015, schools will be organized as follows: Primary to grade 5 Elementary Schools, grade 6 to 8 Middle Schools, and grade 9 to 12 High Schools beginning in September 2015.

Middle school students are in grades 6-8, and between the ages of 11 and 15.  The Board recognizes the unique needs of this group of learners and carefully plans programming to support their gradual growth toward independence.  Grade 9 students will benefit from exposure to expanded program opportunities within the high school context.

The overarching goal of changing to these configurations is to offer the best possible opportunity for students and to meet their academic, emotional, and social needs.

The recommendation to move to a Middle School model across all schools will provide an equitable, consistent program across the region. 

Additional information, answers to frequently asked questions and key dates will be communicated through the usual sources including school newsletters, school website, school board website and social media sites.  Please continue to check these sources for other information about transitions as well as transition activities.

Sincerely,

Barbara MacDonald
Principal
