No Letter Grades for Grade 8 Students

With the new provincial curriculum and a province wide shift to quality formative assessment, grade 8 students at Smithers Secondary will no longer be receiving letter grades on their report cards or interim reports. This will be consistent with the assessment and student reporting structures this group of students has received during their elementary school years. 

Teachers will be reporting on learning outcomes and criteria descriptions rather than handing out a grade. The intent is this will be more motivating for students, and more descriptive of their own individual learning process and engagement.

Please contact your child’s teacher if you have any questions about their learning.

Bullying...Be in the know

Simply put, bullying is a pattern of unwelcome or aggressive behaviour, often with the goal of making others uncomfortable, scared or hurt. It’s almost always used as a way of having control or power over their target, and it is often based on another person’s appearance, culture, race, religion, ethnicity, sexual orientation or gender identity.

Every child deserves an education free from discrimination, bullying, harassment, intimidation and violence. The ERASE (Expect Respect and A Safe Education) Bullying strategy is part of the Province of British Columbia’s efforts to personalize learning and supports for all students.
