In Study Hall you can:

  • work on homework
  • finish or work on an assignment or project
  • have support from a teacher if you don’t understand something from class

You may also be directed to go to study hall (from a teacher) occasionally, if the following occurs:

  • incomplete homework
  • missing work or assignments not passed in
  • need for reflection
  • for directed extra support from concepts missed or not understood in class (i.e. you were absent, or need some extra help)

Grade 6 Homework

Hi Grade Six,

Tonight’s homework is to complete the Math Survey Package. This lets me know your attitude and comfort level with math and your past experiences and this year’s math goals.

“Number Trouble”…wait…it’s only week one!

We kicked off this amazing math year with fun group work this first week of school.

As simple at the activity may have originally seemed, it proved to be more challenging (in a positive and productive way) for the students in six, seven, and eight. #dontstealthestruggle

The activity is called “Number Trouble” by  Sara VanDerWerf. Students have to work collaboratively as a group to find all 100 numbers, and by finding the appropriate solutions, but in order (1, 2, 3, 4…99, 100)

Modelling appropriate and positive group work at the beginning of the year is a fantastic and meaningful way to develop positive and growth mindsets around math, as well as building student confidence in their own abilities and that of the group in which they are participating.

Great first week everyone!

Middle School Homework

Hi Everyone!

This year you will have a grade calendar that will have all of your homework and projects (for all subjects) in one place!

Homework will be placed on the calendar on the date it is assigned. All homework without a due date will be under the assumption of DUE THE FOLLOWING DAY, unless otherwise stated (i.e. a due date linked in place) Projects, Assignments, and longer term homework (i.e. assigned Monday, due Friday) will be on the DUE date.

In addition, you will have a link (when you click on the assignment on google calendar) where you can follow to go back to the subject blog for more information, assignment/homework details, additional links, media required etc.

This information is categorized on the ‘category’ that depicts your homework for information, dates etc. on the right side menu tab under ‘categories’. This will help you find the most current homework (if any) for your grade.

8W: SJCC Reflection and Last Points for SJCC Project

Hi Grade 8!

WOW! We’re almost there! Good to see a lot of you using your time to check your work and answers before your final submission of your SJCC Cumulative Project! SO proud of all of you for your dedication and grit in completing such a robust and strong project! Starting tomorrow we open up the grade 9 textbook and take a walk through: what do we already know? What and where is the new material? What areas do you have to work on before hand to be successful?

Last pointers for the SJCC Project!

  1. Submissions are open any time now!
  2. Don’t forget. NO EXTENSIONS after June 14th (Next Friday)
  3. Reflection. A reflection (minimum half page typed) including the following:-What was it like having a cumulative project?

    -What strategies did you use? What helped? What did not?

    -What did you find the most challenging?

    -What did you enjoy the most?

    -What are you most proud of?

    -What area did you grow (progress) in the most?

    -What would your suggestions be to next year’s grade 8’s and the teacher if I had to make any changes?

    -Anything else you want to share/comment about.


    Looking forward to seeing all your great work and progress come together!
