Grade 10 Literacy and Numeracy Exam Lists Posted

All grade 10 students at Jackson will be writing either the Numeracy or Literacy Assessment (original letter home here). Master lists of what student writes what assessment and when are now posted in the front foyer on the display cases. Both assessments will be held in the library.

Here is the rationale for which grade 10 students write which provincial assessment, based on which courses they are enrolled in:
– MATH = numeracy
– MATH & ENGLISH = numeracy
– ENGLISH = literacy

Please direct questions to the front office.

Jr 10 Girls Place Second

The Jr. Jewels finished in 2nd place out of 8 teams competing in Merritt’s Eagles Perch Tournament this weekend.

They moved past St. Ann’s & Brocklehurst to meet Vernon Christian in the final.  To make the stakes even higher, just 2 weeks ago they played VCS in a league game and lost by 2 points in the final seconds. The Jewels were anxious for this rematch but unfortunately VCS brought a great game and took the tournament!

Well done, Jewels!

Welcome Back!

Just a friendly reminder that staff at Jackson are excited to welcome back students for classes tomorrow, Monday, January 6.

We hope students and their families had a terrific winter break!

Grade 10 Provincial Assessments

Please see the attached letter home to grade 10 families regarding the provincial Numeracy 10 Assessment and the Literacy 10 Assessment. Grade 10 students will write only one of the two assessments during the January exam week, and the other in April.

Grade 10 students in a math class (or math and English) will write the Numeracy Assessment. Grade 10 students not in a math class will write the Literacy Assessment. Specific lists of which students write what exam and when will be posted to the display case in the main foyer in mid January.

We strongly encourage students to prepare for their assessments, by following the links provided in the letter home and completing some of the reviews/practice assessments.

Questions not answered in the letter home and the links provided can be directed to the office.
