Dear parents and guardians:
We all hoped the current labour dispute would be over at this time and we would be back at school as normal. Unfortunately that is not the case, yet. Over the past week we have had a number of requests from parents about ways to help keep their son/daughter engaged academically. Simply providing a textbook is not always the best answer. Individual teachers navigate their students through textbook content at different rates and with varying degrees of focus. Below we have included a list of on-line resources to help students without asking for a textbook.
Hopefully these links are useful for you. Please let us know if there is anything else you need.
Mr. Westhaver, Mrs. Pierik, Mr. Redlin

The first link is to the curriculum (IRP) for all courses offered in BC. It is a good idea to look at the IRP and see the main topics of study for each course.
Here are some links for resources to help support specific subject areas
• http://www.learnnowbc.ca. - Several Math and Reading resources are available.
• http://www.openschool.bc.ca/k12/student.html - A variety of Elementary and Secondary resources
• The Canadian Parents for French web site, which is providing strike-specific advice and resources. (http://bc-yk.cpf.ca/resources/for-parents/2014-strike-resource-for-students-in-french-programs/)
