Teachers will be providing a formal point of progress to go home on March 14th. This point of progress serves as an indicator of where your child is in relation to the curricular competencies and their learning.

Student Led Conferences are on April 11th, which is also an EARLY DISMISSAL Day. Students will get out of school at 12:10 on this day. Stay tuned for more details on Student Led Conferences in the near future.

For Grade 7 Parents only.  From now until April 15th your child will be completing a Learning Experience survey. Grade 7 Parents at Dunsmuir are asked to complete the Parent portion of this survey.

Follow this link.    http://www.bced.gov.bc.ca/sat_survey/access.htm
Parents may access the survey by Direct Access from the website listed above.

It is the only source of province-wide information of children’s learning experiences. The information is very helpful for others like the Ministry of Health, who use it to improve health services for children across BC. Your participation is an important contribution to improving the educational experiences of children.
