Grade 8 Virtual Night

Happy 2021, Everyone!

 

The Transition Team has been busy at work, preparing to welcome our 2021-22 grade 9s to Bear Creek Secondary School.  Below you will find our overview and plan for helping your students transition to high school. We ask that you please forward this information to all grade 8 teachers, students and parents. 

 

GOALS

Our goal is to create a smooth and effective transition for our grade 8s as they move into their new role as Grade 9 students at Bear Creek.  Obviously,  this year has called on us to do things a little differently, so we've included some information below.

 

PLAN

Google Classroom - Sheena McRae (SALT) has created a great platform for teachers, students and parents to access important information about coming to high school.  In the Google Classroom, you will find information about the Grade 9 course selection process and department videos in the Guidance tab (January 14th) and throughout the coming months you'll see tours of Bear Creek, important tips and tricks about high school from Link Leaders,  as well as dates for live Q&A sessions.

 

The Google Classroom code is: udzafey

Please ensure that this class code is communicated to each and every grade 8 student, both in school and remote, who will be attending Bear Creek in September.

Also, please note that a slide presentation will be pinned to the top of the Google Classroom to support navigating the Classroom and future transition plans.
