Welcome to the
Bible Hill Junior High
Homework Communication System
The goal of Canadian School Counselling Week is to increase the public’s awareness of the scope of programs and services that characterize the school counselling profession in Canada within the twenty-first century and beyond. This special week highlights the role school counsellors play in supporting student success. |
The Dalhousie Agricultural Campus in Bible Hill is having a Chinese New Year Celebration that is open to the community. It sounds like a wonderful opportunity to learn about another culture's traditions and ways that they celebrate the coming of a new year. Plus great food! Please see the flyer for more information on ticket prices and location. |
There is important information contained in this message for grade 9 students and parents of BHJH.|
Message from CEC:
CEC will be hosting an information evening for parents and students of potential grade 10 students (2016-2017) at CEC on Thursday, Feb. 4 beginning at 6:30 PM. While we are still working on the agenda, we are trying to change up this evening from previous ones to make it a “Welcome to CEC Evening”. Along with information sessions by department heads we plan to have some slide shows of students in the various aspects of life at CEC as well as some entertainment.
Message from BHJH:
Representatives from C.E.C. along with our Guidance Counsellor Mrs. MacNutt have visited grade 9 students at BHJH recently to discuss course selections for next year. In the coming days, students will be recieving a course selection sheet that students are to fill out, have their parents sign and return to BHJH. Students will use the information on the sheet to register for courses online using the Student Potal. It is Mrs. MacNutt's intention to meet with all grade 9 students prior to the deadline that CEC will set to have selections completed. Over the coming weeks, BHJH Math, ELA and FLA teachers will fill out recommendations on PowerSchool for these subjects which students will be able to view on their Student Portal.
In the near future, Mrs. MacNutt will send out more information regarding the process. Please look for this in the coming days.
There is a Family Literacy Day Event at the library on January 30th 1-4p. You can write a beautiful Valentine letter or a thank you note. This is a way that families can have fun by spending time together. |
