Home Work Support Room

We have now restarted our Homework Support Room for our Grade 9 and 10 students. As it has been a while since we have had this opportunity for students, please read the rationale for this program below.

Completion of classroom assigned work is crucial to a student’s academic success. A zero given on an assignment because work is not completed is not a true assessment of student learning. To ensure true assessment of student learning, we believe it is important for students to complete classroom assigned work. To assist students in establishing successful study practices and understand the importance to their learning in completing assigned work, we will work with our Grade 9 & 10 students to help them complete missing assignments. Grade 9 &10 students who are not completing assigned work will be asked by their teacher to attend a homework support room during lunch time to do any missing work. During this time, students will be given help in study skills and in completing the missed learning tasks. A failure to attend these study sessions will result in administrative contact with parents to pursue options to help the student successfully complete their work.


School Fees

Canmore Collegiate High School fees are now available on PowerSchool Parent Portal. Debit or credit card payments can be made online through your Parent Portal As per Canadian Rockies School Division’s Administrative Procedure 503, payment for school fees is due 30 days after invoicing.

Extra Curricular News 

As a school we are working hard to balance the requirement to keep our students safe with social distancing, good hand hygiene and masking, with extra curricular initiatives.  We do ask that students who are not directly working with teachers or involved in an extracurricular activity leave school at 3:30 so that we can properly clean our spaces.
