Absence Call Out System

After each school day, automatic phone calls and emails are sent to inform parents/guardians about student absences. Please contact the school when needed to check or clarify about your son or daughter's attendance. Note - Phone calls and emails will NOT occur for excused absences. We encourage our parents to call or email our secretaries in advance to inform us about future excused absences.

Also, please contact the Office if you prefer your cell number to be the phone number for the Call-Out System to use. Thank-you.

Speaking of phone numbers, if your phone numbers have changed, please contact the Office.

Interim Reporting

We are half way through Trimester 2. Our teachers are in the midst of reporting home to parents and with students about their progress in their Academic courses. February 1st to 15th is our latest interim reporting time.

Please check your son and/or daughter's progress on FreshGrade or by email. Students who are struggling to pass their Academics will be informed by their teachers who will also be contacting parents with an 'I' (Incomplete) report by email.

We appreciate your involvement and help from home as we support your son/daughter together to succeed at Central Campus. Please stay in contact with teachers when and as you can. The power of together makes a big difference.

Report Cards will be issued soon after Spring Break in early April.

Reminder that X4 COURSES (the next round of Exposure 8 and Seminar 9 classes) started on Jan 31st and they go to March 16th.

Athletics Update

We are now in the last month of the basketball season. Both of the Grade 9 teams have been playing at a high level, winning some good games and both taking second place at our home tournament. Both teams also won the Dr. Kearney tournament before Christmas, and at the Bert Bowes New Year’s Classic, the Boys came 2nd while the Girls came 3rd.

The Boys have a tournament against the best teams in Prince George, in which they hope to earn a spot at Provincials (March 1-4) down in Langley. The Girls are looking to beat NPSS to earn a trip to Zones in Prince George. Finally, both teams will be Grande Prairie Regional College on February 23/24 for their Grade 9 tournament. Here’s to a strong and successful finish to the season!

Ab.Ed. Corner

Hi! My name is Kirsten Davies and I have taken over for Julie Hamilton for the rest of this year while she is on maternity leave. I have been a teacher in this district for thirteen years, teaching everything from grade 3 to grade 8. I have worked at Central before, about six years ago. I worked in the Aboriginal Education department for one year and I taught grade 8 for another year. The role of the Coach Mentor in Aboriginal Education has changed since I last did it. Back then, my job was strictly goal setting with students and helping to plan special events for the department. Now, the role has evolved to include working with teachers to profile their classrooms, which is what I am currently doing.

Classroom profile meetings happens three times a year at Central, currently we are on our second round. The idea is to be able to sit down with the classroom teacher and take a very close look at the strengths and individual needs of all of the learners in the class. This gives teachers a very good idea of what that specific class needs are in regards to instruction and the teacher is then able to set a goal for their class for the term coming up. Once this round of profile meetings is over, I will focus on meeting up with the students to get to know them and continue goal setting.
