A new outcome-based report card will be used in all schools across the South East Cornerstone School Division. Instead of a percentage grade, students in Kindergarten to Grade 9 will be graded using a scale to indicate the students success in each subject. Students work habits and social skills will be assessed separately for a clearer picture of their performance. Students in Grade 10, 11, and 12 will continue to be graded with a percentage mark.
There will not be any classes on Thursday and Friday, Nov. 4 and 5, as the teachers will be attending a convention in Weyburn. Nov. 11 and Nov. 12 will be Remembrance Day holidays. Parent/teacher/student interviews will be held on Nov. 24 and Nov. 25. Nov. 26 will be a day off in lieu of time spent for the interviews.
