  • This is a Cougar Week. Today is a Day 1 for Grade 6 and a Day 4 for Grades 7 & 8.
  • Starting this Wednesday, December 16, we are launching our Cougar Camera Campaign to encourage you to turn on your camera during a class Google Meet.  The benefits of this campaign include:
    • Building a stronger relationship with your teacher.
    • Connect better with other students and make learning at home feel less lonely. 
    • Help you focus and increase your level of participation in classroom discussion. 
    • Classes will be a little bit more fun when students and teachers are able to see each other, smile and share their positive energy!!! 

    Starting on Wednesday, December 16, we ask that all students turn on their cameras to support this campaign.  Cameras may be turned off when the teacher indicates, such as during independent work or when the in-person students are taking a mask break. We are looking forward to “seeing” all of you a bit more in the coming days! Have a great day!
