Welcome to December! It has been a unique journey since school started in September and I would like to express my gratitude to all our middle school families who provided immense support during our recent online learning. Recently, students received their term one report card. This assessment provides an accurate representation of your child’s academic progress. While report cards reveal important information, parent-teacher interviews provide even more insight regarding your child’s overall success. I am hopeful that all parents and/ or guardians were able to participate in the parent teacher appointments to discuss your child’s progress. If a virtual meeting time was not available please contact your child’s teacher by telephone, a hand written note, or email. Parent and school communication is incredibly important and will help ensure student success.
Northeast Kings Education Centre continues to promote the use of the parent/student portal. This online resource provides specific information regarding attendance, assignment due dates and student assessment results. If you would like to sign-up for the portal, please contact the school office for more information.
The NKEC Library’s virtual Scholastic book fair has been extended! You can now shop at the library’s online Scholastic Book Fair 24/7 until Sunday, December 13th at midnight. The link to the store can be found on the NKEC homepage and the library’s website.
The majority of students are working hard in class and taking advantage of learning opportunities. Please encourage your child to ask for academic help at school when necessary and to advocate for themselves when a situation may arise. Reviewing concepts at home, reading and completing homework daily help extend learning at home.
With only a week of school remaining until the holiday season, we continue to remind students and reinforce Northeast Kings Education Centre’s Expectations for Success and Our school’s new COVID-19 protocols. We will continue to provide consistent reminders in the days ahead to ensure students work hard and continue to be respectful citizens. Thank you for your help reinforcing similar expectations at home.
As we approach the holiday season I hope that you and your family have a restful holiday and as a staff, we look forward to students returning to school in the New Year.
Sincerely, Pete Gebhardt Vice-Principal
