Semester’s Second Half #ENG3U #ICS2O

Yeah, so there are only like two months left of the school year. Everything seemed fine until we came back from the Easter long weekend and then BAM! the realization hit. In these next two months we’ll be doing tons of stuff in English and Computer Science to finish off the school year. Here’s an update of where we’re at:

ENG3U – Grade 11 English: Students have finished the short story unit. Culminating tasks will be handed in on Friday. I’m really looking forward. I have high expectations for the creative output of this group of students. We have now begun Macbeth, which is by far my favourite Shakespeare play.

Students should definitely check out the resources that are available to help them understand the content so we can focus on delivering it. Here’s a great start:

In ICS2O – Grade 10 Computer Science, we have transitioned away from our Python unit. We’re spending a few days talking about computer security, viruses, and privacy. Next, we’ll be working with HTML/CSS and website coding. Students will learn how to create webpages and websites, which could even be a marketable skill. Zing!

Midterm report information is being submitted to the office early next week. This information is reviewed by Mr. Luomala and then sent off to the mail. Report cards will likely arrive home the first week of May. Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.

Thanks so much!
