MAP assessments: message for G6-10 students

Students in Grades 6-10:

Over the next couple of weeks, you will take the Spring MAP (Measures of Academic Progress) assessments in Reading and Maths.

You will see the schedule below that indicates the time of the assessments, where they will take place, and the supervising teacher.

These online assessments may take up to 90 minutes, so you will have extended lessons on these days.

Locks on lockers

Good morning,

If you find that you have a new lock on your locker, it means that your lock was open, you were missing a lock, or you had a non-school lock on your locker.

This applies to a very small number of students.

What to do next?  Stop by and see Mrs Tyoschin to

a) retrieve your lock that was left open,

b) arrange to purchase a lock if you have lost yours, and/or

c) … ask anything else I can help you with.


INSET: Days 1-3

Good morning!

In case you missed it, here is the schedule for INSET.  Remember to bring your laptop and a pen or pencil.

Snacks provided at morning break. Lunch provided in the cafeteria each day.

See you at 8:15 in the PAC!


INSET Schedule

Good morning,

As you know, our first three days of INSET will focus on Inclusion, led by highly experienced, insightful and action-based Kristen Pelletier and Danette Sack.  You may remember Danette as she was one of the accreditation team members who visited NIS in September 2017.  If you have been at NIS for a (long) while, Kristen first visited NIS to lead an initial audit of our inclusion practices in 2012.  We’ve come a long way since then!

On Feb 14, a number of targeted break-out sessions will take place.  Please check Page 2 for groupings.  If you don’t see your name, don’t worry!  Kristen and Danette have something very practical and meaningful in mind for everyone!

You can view the schedule in the attachment or in the screenshots below.
