FOUNDATION SKILLS ASSESSMENT – FSAs

This is a mandatory provincial assessment for all grade 4 students in the areas of Reading, Writing, and Numeracy. We will be completing the assessments from January 11 – February 19th so it is important that your child is here for these dates. Please contact the school if you have any questions.

New Curriculum Meeting

A public meeting will be held at the school board office on Wednesday, January 27, 2016 at 7:00 pm. The meeting will feature a presentation about the new curriculum and give everyone an opportunity to ask questions. We are looking forward to working with you and your children as we implement these new and exciting changes to what and how we teach.

Year Books at Duncan Cran:

Super Hero Day

Much like Hat Day or PJ Day, Super Hero Day is a day we are having on Thursday, January 28th. It is just for fun and the idea is that students come to school dressed as their favourite super hero!

Have a great January!
