Greetings from your new vice principal
by Wendy Lloyd - Thursday, 11 September 2014, 7:09 PM
 

As the newly-appointed vice principal at LLSS, I would like to introduce myself to my school community.  Let me begin by saying that I am very excited to be working with students, parents, and staff at this school and that I am looking forward to meeting members of the community as the year progresses.  It's been a pleasure getting know Ms. Mochikas, and I am delighted to have the opportunity to work with a principal who is very highly regarded.

I have been fortunate to work in three school districts in my career.  My professional background includes experience as a classroom teacher, music teacher, director of the district children's honour choir, and committee member working on the Kamloops Thompson Regional Heritage Fair and on District Math Assessments.  On a more personal level, I love walking, hiking, camping, singing, and most of all, curling up with a good book and a cup of tea.  I spend lots of time watching my three children play soccer and volleyball and supporting my husband, a die-hard soccer coach.  Feel free to drop by the office to introduce yourselves and have a chat.  I hope to see you soon!

 HOOPS FOR HEART

With just over a month left in the school year. It is important to keep working hard and get assignments handed in to your teachers. Any secondary students who fail a course will have to register in summer school (held in Kamloops) or repeat the course next year.

A reminder to Grads that the academic deadline of May 31st is quickly approaching. All grade 12 students must have completed Planning 10 and be passing all of their courses in order to participate in our Commencement ceremony on Friday, June 13th. Students taking an on line course must have 75% of the course completed by May 31st.

Report Card Pointers

Reminder for Report Card Do’s and Don’t’s 

As a parent, I received a newsletter that once had some important guidelines regarding report cards. I am including what my child’s school put in their newsletter, as I believe it’s good advice.

 Do’s:

  • Read the comments together with your child
  • Talk about them
  • Celebrated growth and achievements
  • Make strategies for improvement and support
  • Look at work habits, attitude, and behaviour
  • Focus on learning
  • Have daily times to check in on how your child is doing at school, not just at report card time

Don’t’s:

  • Compare your child to others, siblings or classmates
  • Focus on letter grades – the comments really tell the story!
  • Only look at negatives (e.g. that on C amongst the Bs and As
  • Ignore recommendations for growth
  • Plan unrealistic demands on your child or use excessive rewards for marks.

Please be sure to pay attention to the teacher's comments on the report card and your child's effort marks. Parents and teachers want each student to work to the best of his/her abilities.

Please remember that the school is your partner and we want to work together to ensure your child is as successful as possible. Regular communication with your child’s teacher is beneficial and recommended.
