Student timetables for grades 9-12 will be published on August 23rd to the Student Portal. Please log-in to view student timetables for the 2019-2020 school year. Grade 8 students will get their timetables on the first day of school.
Questions about timetables can be directed to SSS counsellors Kristy Bachman and Katherine Brach.
Counsellors will be available on August 28th and 29th from 9am-3pm to make changes to student timetables on a drop in basis. Changes will only be made at this time for students who are missing courses, failed a class or who have an unbalanced academic load. Teacher preference changes cannot be accommodated.
Smithers Secondary will be altering its timetable slightly for the week of June 17-21 in order to accommodate student assessments, project presentations, and course completion. Regular attendance is expected and will be taken for each class.
On improvement days, students will be working with teachers to finish projects and review for exams. Students do have the option (with teacher approval) of working with another teacher if they need to devote more time to a specific course. On assessment days, students will be either doing an exam, presenting projects, or participating in a celebration of learning.
Please see the attached schedule to see how the block rotation has switched for this week.
The parent portal will allow access to view Smithers Secondary School report cards and other information for your child (ren).
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.
