Grade 6/7/8 Summer School Programming & Grade 8 Reach-Ahead Credits

Posted May 6, 2022

Summer School - Valley High SchoolDear John Galt Parents/Guardians:

Upper Grand District School Board is offering Grade 6, 7, and 8 students requiring additional support with the Ontario curriculum, particularly in the areas of Literacy and Numeracy, an opportunity to participate in an 8-day non-credit remediation program. The program is intended for students whose achievement of expectations in Grade 6, 7or 8 Language and/or Mathematics indicates that they are likely to experience difficulty in the next school year.
Students who are achieving a Level 2 or below in Language and/or Mathematics at their grade level, and are recommended by their Principal, are eligible to participate in the program. Parents of Grade 6, 7, and 8 can contact their home school to indicate their interest in the program.
These support programs are half-day in length so it is possible for students to participate in both the literacy and the numeracy support program.
Session Dates: July 5th – July 14th, 2022
Literacy and Numeracy support programs are being offered at John F Ross CVI (Guelph). All programs are dependent on sufficient enrolment. Transportation is not provided.
The Grade 8 Reach Ahead Credits opportunity for students going into Grade 9 in September. Reach-ahead credits allow graduating Grade 8 students to earn a high school credit prior to entering secondary school in September. Learners will get a head start on credit accumulation, and develop learning and technology skills
that will be useful in all secondary settings while gaining self-confidence through successful completion of high school credit. UGDSB students will register via myBlueprint. All programs are dependent on sufficient enrolment.
Session Dates: July 4th – July 27th, 2022 (18 days), 8:30 a.m. – 2:45 p. m. Daily attendance is required. Transportation is not provided.
Please take a look at the flyer attached below and if you would like to register your child, kindly reach out to Ibrahim Akyol at [email protected]  and I will complete the required paperwork.
