May Test Make-Up Day

It's that time of year.  There's tons of stuff going on around the school and everyone is counting the days until the summer holidays.  With everything going on, some of you have missed a test (or two) recently.  Therefore, I have scheduled another test make-up day on Tuesday, May 21.  If you have missed a test, please come by after school on that day to write it.

For the few of you who are looking at your math mark and wondering when summer school starts, come talk to me.  You would be surprised what we can get done over the last few weeks to get you up to a passing grade.  The numbers can be deceiving, especially if you're missing a test.  Trust me, I'm pretty good with numbers.

It's March 14...

To celebrate the greatest of the math holidays, here is Vi Hart's annual YouTube tribute to Pi Day.

"Go eat half a pie".  Ha ha!  (The math nerds among you will get it).

Term 2 Test Make-Up Day

For any students that have missed a math test during terms 1 or 2, please come by after school on Tuesday, February 26 to write that missing test.  Please see me if you are missing more than one test, or if you're not sure if you're missing any tests.  Any missing tests written after this date may not get marked in time to be included in your term 2 report card.

Term 2 Portfolio Midterm Self-Assessment

Grade 10 students, it's midterm portfolio self-assessment time again!  Go into your portfolios and answer the questions I've posted there for you.  Please get these done by Friday, February 1.  Be honest with your self-assessments, but don't be too hard on yourself.  There's nothing wrong with giving yourself a good score if you've put in your best effort.  If you're portfolio is currently..."lacking", then you need to start giving it more love and and attention.  It's not too late!

It's 2019!

Welcome back from Winter Break.  I hope that you enjoyed your time away, and that you've returned to school refreshed and ready to learn.  For many, a new year means a new beginning.  If you feel like you need a "fresh start", now is the time to make that happen.  On the other hand, if life was pretty good before the break and you think you've found the formula for success, then keep doing whatever you were doing.  The school year is almost half over, but there is still a lot of learning to do.  Have a fantastic 2019 (which is not a prime number).

Happy Holidays

I hope your Winter Break is a restful one.  For those of you suffering from math withdrawal, here's a little something for you to ponder.  See you in January.
