Summer Learning Opportunities 2017

During the month of July, School District 73 will be offering a number of learning opportunities for both elementary and secondary students. The courses are free to eligible students (under 19 years of age and not graduated).

SUMMER SCHOOL (Grades 8 to 12)

Summer School provides the opportunity for a student who has failed a core course to avoid repeating the course the following school year.  Students must have taken the course already.  These courses do not have enough credit hours for students to complete a new course.

Remedial courses are for those students who have achieved at least 40% in the course during the school year. Courses will consist of 40 hours of instruction. Students who successfully complete a remedial course will receive a "C". Students wanting to achieve a higher mark than "C" should consider taking a full-credit course. Students who achieved less than 40% during the school year must take the course for full credit.

Full-Credit courses will consist of 80 hours of instruction.  Full-credit summer school courses are not intended for students who have not previously taken the course.

SUMMER MATH PROGRAM (Grades 4 to 7)

This summer program is intended to improve students’ math skills and confidence and is for students who are referred by their classroom teacher. With sufficient enrolment, we hope to offer both support and enrichment sections of the Math program split into grades 4/5 and 6/7.  This non-credit program will support learners with paper, game and computer based opportunities to encourage active participation while building or expanding competency in number sense, patterns and numeracy relationships.

Who is it for?

The “support program” is intended for students who lack comfort when working in Math, and would benefit from building skills and confidence in Math. There is no enrichment program available this summer. Registration for Summer Math will be done on a referral basis at the school.

When/Where is it?

DATES/TIMES: July 4 - July 21 (14 daily sessions)

LOCATIONS: Arthur Hatton, Beattie, Chief Atahm*, Barriere Elementary*, Raft River*, Logan Lake Elementary*

PRIMARY SUMMER READING PROGRAM (Grades 1, 2, and 3)

Who is it for?

Primary Summer Reading is intended for students who are exiting grades 1, 2, or 3 and are referred by their classroom teacher or Learning Assistance teacher because they would benefit from extra support or consolidation in their reading. The numbers are kept small and the focus is on small group instruction and literacy centers to reinforce skills.
