Elementary Summer School – Gr. 6, 7 and 8

Continuing Education Servicesis pleased to offer the following two summer school programs for current year grade 6, 7 and 8 students. Due to the pandemic, all programs will be offered remotely.

Registration, through my Pathway Planner, is now open and closes June 18, 2021. Spaces are limited and students are encouraged to register early.

Elementary Summer School Grade 6, 7 and 8 (Literacy & Numeracy) Program

This 15-day program is designed to reinforce the curriculum for students who are performing below the provincial standard. The program will operate from July 5 to July 23, 2021 (8:45 am – 3:25 pm).

 Students must register in the program for their current school grade as this is not an acceleration program. For example, a grade 7 student would register for the grade 7 program as it reinforces grade 7 content.  

 The following programs will be offered:

  • Language and Math reinforcement for students who may or may not have an Individual Education Plan (IEP)
  • English Language Learner (ELL) Language for students who are ELL Stage 1 or 2 learners. The focus is on reading, writing and speaking

Grade 8 Summer Reach Ahead

This program provides an opportunity for students to earn a high school credit. These 18 day acceleration courses start July 7 and end July 30. Students register directly through MyPathwayPlanner and they are located in the Remote Secondary School offerings.

The following courses will be offered:

  • Discovering the Workplace (GLD2O). The type of student for whom this course is specifically designed:

o   would benefit from a gradual transition into high school;
            o   may experience some challenges in credit acquisition in grade 9 or 10;
            o   would benefit from focused support in order to improve academic performance;

o  may be disconnected from school and/or peers;
            o   has experienced some challenges with regular school attendance.

  •  International Languages (Farsi, Simplified Mandarin and Spanish). Please note that prerequisites are not required. Should the student wish to continue studying a language they would register for the Fall International and Indigenous Languages program in the next level.

For your convenience, we are including the following link, Continuing Education Services > Summer Learning > Elementary Summer Learning page, which outlines the information and registration process for this program.
