Quadmester 4 Update

Quadmester 4 Update
Posted on 04/18/2021

As we head into our 4th and final quadmester for this school year, there are a few important updates we would like to share with students and families:

1. Quadmester 4 starts tomorrow - Monday April 19th at 9:00 am. Although in-person schools will have a transition day to prepare for remote learning, OCVSS classes will begin as scheduled tomorrow.

2. Start the Quadmester off right! Get involved in school activities to stay healthy, connected, and engaged: Consider joining in tomorrow’s "Powwow Workout Class with Amanda Fox" (11 - 12:00), join a club, or prepare to take part in Relay for Life (watch for the Relay for Life launch email tomorrow!)

3. Peer Tutoring: Need a hand with making sure you are at your best this quad? Want to help someone else who could use a hand? Consider joining the peer tutoring program! (sign up as a tutor, or request a tutor)

4. Important Changes for Quadmester 4: As part of our ongoing efforts to improve the student experience at OCVSS, there are some key changes that will launch this week:

  • dedicated 5 min screen time break each day at mid-point of lesson
  • additional time/focus on building supportive relationships with teachers and peers
  • 40 min dedicated time each Wednesday for teachers to schedule 1:1 meetings with students for check-in and individual coaching

We hope everyone has enjoyed the much-needed break and is ready for the final quadmester. Reminder that there are several PD Days/Holidays this quadmester, so please pay close attention to the school calendar (embedded on our web site at https://ocvsecondary.ocdsb.ca)
