PLEASE READ:

Grade 10 WimWe - AST 1 - Lake Louise Field Trips this week.

As we recently shared with all grade 10 families in an email sent to you, your child has been working on an online AST 1 course over the past month. Students were required to complete this course prior to November 30, 2021. Each grade 10 class has received 2 hours of face to face instruction from a certified Avalanche Canada AST 1 instructor at their school between November 30 and December 2, 2021. Each class will then have a FULL day at Lake Louise Ski Resort where they will compete their AST 1 Field day and subsequently have the opportunity to be certified with their AST 1 course through Avalanche Canada. This course will be done on SNOWSHOES. Students will ride the gondola to the top of the mountain where they will learn the practical skills of the AST 1 program. There will not be an opportunity to ski or snowboard during this day. All avalanche equipment and snowshoes will be provided to each student.

Please note students can only participate in the Lake Louise Hill day if they have completed - online course work, class work, parents have notified school of approval for late pick up (5:30pm),Proof (Vaccination/ Covid neg test/Medical exemption - please have a copy of documentation with you on the day) Learn more about the day here -Please click here

Please feel free to contact chris.rogers@crps.ca or hans.holthuis@crps.ca if you have any questions.

 

COVID INFORMATION

Note,  our AP 413 COVID-19 HARM REDUCTION is now in place. The purpose of this administrative procedure is to mitigate the risk of spread of COVID-19 infection in all Division facilities in order to protect staff, students, and their families from a highly contagious illness during the global pandemic.

This Administrative Procedure applies to all employees and School Board Trustees of CRSD. It also applies to all persons carrying out duties, or activities on Division property and volunteers of the Division. Any new employees, contractors, guests and volunteers to the Division on or after November 24 th , 2021 will require proof of full vaccination or proof of rapid testing for COVID-19 as a condition of employment or volunteering except as specifically exempted as outlined in the AP.

 

We continue to follow the both directives outlined by Alberta Health Services and the Canadian Rockies Reentry plan for 2021/22.  Please be certain to do the regular student screening.  Updated COVID checklist.  A reminder to families as per our CRPS reentry plan - “​If a student presents with COVID-19 symptoms during the school day, as per the Alberta Health Daily Checklist and as determined by school staff, parents must be contacted immediately to pick up their child.”

 

Grad Class of 2022

Visit the Grad section of the school website to keep up to date on important timely information.

Ongoing

The Canmore Bottle Depot are kindly supporting the Grad Class of 2022 by setting up an account. You can drop off your bottles (any fundable recyclables) at the Canmore Bottle Depot for the CCHS Grad 2022 account.

The grad class thanks all those who are willing to support this fundraising effort.

 

Home Work Support Room

We have now restarted our Homework Support Room for our Grade 9 and 10 students. All of our covid protocols for safe return to school will be followed. 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

https://powerschool.crps.ca/public/. As per Canadian Rockies School Division’s Administrative Procedure 503, payment for school fees is due 30 days after invoicing. Please contact Sarah Mckay (sarah.mckay@crps.ca) to make payment arrangements if unable to pay within 30 days or if you have any questions.

 

Sport

Basketball Season is now up and running. It’s exhilarating to have our sports teams back competing in school with the support of our community.  Teams in school provide our students with an opportunity to have a well balanced school experience.  While limited spectators are allowed in alignment with our Covid 19 protocols, please remember that all spectators (only allowed for league play within the Bow Valley) are required to wear a mask and socially distance when cheering on our Wolverines.

Shout out to one of our CCHS Students for excellence in Sport outside of a School Team. Congrats Kiana!

"Kiana Worobey, grade 12 at CCHS has received a full scholarship at the University of Tennessee.  She is excited to begin her four years studying Kinesiology at Tennessee in the hopes of being admitted into Sports Medicine following her undergrad degree.  Tennessee recruited Kiana from the NCSA website after she posted her 2K erg time of 7:26 which earned her carding status and a spot on the Alberta Provincial Rowing team.  Kiana will also be rowing in Canada Summer Games in St. Catherines in the summer of 2022.  We wish Kiana the best of luck in her athletic and academic career."
