End of Semester 1 (January 2023) Schedule

Please take a few moments to review the assessment schedule for the end of January. We felt that it was important to share this with families now so that they can prepare for the last week of January and first week of February.

As you can see, January 27th, 2023 is a course completion day. The intent of this day is for students to come to the school to catch up on missing work, assignments and projects. This will be valuable time for those students in jeopardy of not passing their Semester 1 classes. There are no scheduled classes this day.

Monday, January 30th is a Pro-D day (students do not attend) and Tuesday, January 31st is a semester turn around day (students to do not attend).

Semester 2 classes will start on Wednesday, February 1st.

Virtual Green Collar Careers Conference for students!! Limited space available – so sign up soon if interested.

Are you a student in grades 9-12?

Explore your options at this FREE green collar career conference for secondary students on Saturday February 11, 2023 from 9:00 – 2:30 held virtually this year.

The “green economy” is changing the face of the workplace in BC and around the world. This day is dedicated to students in secondary school to learn about exciting and endless career opportunities. Futures is much more than a career fair as it allows you to interact with career mentors from various sustainability related careers who have excelled in and are passionate about their green careers.

This interactive career workshop will be offered free of charge to 150 young people and will allow participants the opportunity to:

• Meet and interact with amazing and successful people who will share their sustainability career paths in breakout sessions where career mentors will share their career journeys

• Learn about emerging sustainability career opportunities in B.C. and internationally

• Listen to an inspirational keynote address from Marissa Bergeron, founder of Eat the Dishes: Zero waste street food

• Find out what it takes to reach your goals

The workshop will conclude with a wrap-up session and a chance for the participants to win prizes, including a $500 scholarship. You must be registered to attend. Register early as space is very limited.

Help SD83 plan for the next five years!

Parents, guardians, caretakers, students, staff, and community members are urged to take part in a survey to begin the process to renew SD83’s five-year strategic plan.

Superintendent of Schools Donna Kriger comments it is her immense privilege to lead the strategic plan process and renewal, which will guide the school district’s work over the course of the next five years. “The development of a new strategic plan involves high level visioning that will provide a roadmap to guide the direction of SD83. Our desire is to create a strategic plan which will enable students within the district to thrive academically, socially, emotionally, and culturally within school environments that support their ability to learn, succeed, and feel a sense of belonging.”

The survey is open now and will remain open until 11:59 p.m. on January 16, 2023.
