1. Even though their children are in high school, it continues to be important for parents to be aware of how things are going at school. Most students need encouragement to be successful. Keeping this in mind, here are several strategies that might be useful: Put a copy of your child’s timetable on your fridge. Daily attendance is key to success. The school will contact you via email, text or phone if your child has missed a class. Parents (who are registered) may access attendance information online through PowerSchool. If there are concerns, parents should contact the school.
2. High school students should have school work every night. Depending on the student and the courses, the amount of homework may vary. Homework might include preparation for exams, completion of assignments or projects, review of the day’s lessons, organizing notes, or reading. Daily homework encourages a student to be organized and responsible, and to avoid the stress associated with being disorganized and unprepared.
3. Provide your child with a quiet, comfortable workspace with few distractions. Homework and study are work and should be treated as such.
4. Establish a study routine and stick to it.
5. If there are concerns, contact individual teachers as soon as possible through email.
6. Encourage involvement in school-related events and activities. Students who are part of the culture of a school generally have greater academic success.
7. Be aware of the amount of time your child spends at a part-time job. Students, in most cases, should not be working more than 15 hours a week and should not be working late into the evening. Watch out and advocate for your child if employers are putting unreasonable pressure on them.
8. Be vigilant about monitoring computer activity, phone time and watching TV. Stress the importance of balance in a healthy productive life.
9. Ensure that your teen gets enough sleep. Research indicates that this age group needs over 9 hours of sleep per night in order to be alert.

In an effort to assist our grade 12 students in obtaining as much timely information as possible, we will be supplying information via e-mail to our students. If you are not on our e-mail list and would like to be added, please click here to make that request.
Although every effort is made to supply accurate information, students are reminded that it is their responsibility to ensure the accuracy of information, particularly in regards to scholarship criteria and deadlines and post-secondary application deadlines.
Off-Campus Education includes Work Study, Work Experience, and Registered Apprenticeship programs. All are designed to give students the opportunity to learn about the world of work while attending school.
Work Experience is available for high school students only. This is a separate course that allows them to work off-campus to obtain credit towards their school program (Work Experience 15, 25, 35).
Students in high school can be in the Registered Apprenticeship Program while attending school full-time. Students must be 16 years old and meet all apprenticeship entry qualifications, including finding a journeyman to sponsor them. The school works closely with Alberta Advanced Education and Career Development to monitor this program. The Registered Apprenticeship Program (R.A.P.) is a program where you, as a registered high school student, can become an apprentice and earn credits toward your apprenticeship and your high school diploma – at the same time!
For more information on our Off-Campus programs, please call Mr. Olwen Lepps, by email at email@example.com.
Workplace Safety Systems (HCS3000) is a mandatory prerequisite course for any off-campus courses (Work Experience and RAP).
