English Language Arts 30-1 and 30-2 exemption

(Updated Jan 20/01/2015)

As you are aware, students writing Part A of the ELA 30-1 and ELA 30-2 diploma exams encountered technical difficulty using the Quest A+ examination system that all schools were asked to use. The system was unable to accommodate all of the concurrent examination writers resulting in delays and disruption during the examination. Alberta Education recognizes that no student should be negatively impacted by circumstances beyond his or her control and that individual circumstances exist where students were adversely impacted by this event. As a result, Alberta Education has responded to the situation and the impact on individual students by offering a partial exemption for the written response component of the diploma examination.

Calgary students sweep social media with mental health campaign

By Heather Yourex and Mia Sosiak Global News

 

A social media hashtag created by Calgary high school students to raise money and awareness about mental health has exploded across Canada.

 

The hashtag #CHHSLetsTalk began with a modest goal of raising a few hundred dollars, but has been trending nationwide since Monday.

 

Brett Rothery, a Crescent Heights High School student, helped launch the campaign.

 

Over the holidays, Rothery, 16, and a few friends, handwrote 1,400 Post-It notes carrying inspirational quotes and the #CHHSLetsTalk hashtag.

Parent Access to Student Progress

 

D2L

As many of you are aware, the CBE now has a number of tools to help parents and students track and monitor their progress.  Teachers are using either HomeLogic or D2L technology to make marks available to students and parents  .  Please note, if teachers are using D2L as a marks program, you will not see their grades in Teacher Logic until the end of the term.  However, you can access student marks through D2L.  Parents can go online and access grades and login history. Parents have personal parent access by logging into the CBE MyAccount application https://webapps.cbe.ab.ca/myaccount/Account/LogOn and clicking on the D2L link. The site will provide access to student grades and login information.

HomeLogic

A parent portal called “HomeLogic” was recently introduced by the Calgary Board of Education. This online environment allows parents/legal guardians to check their child’s progress and attendance online throughout the school year. The specific information that can be viewed about your child is their attendance, schedule, transcript and demographics. In order to access HomeLogic it is important that the school have the parent’s/legal guardian’s current email address on file. Please email it to crescentheights@cbe.ab.ca. This is where your username and password will be emailed at the time of registration to HomeLogic. Once the school has your email address, please visit the website https://sirswebapps.cbe.ab.ca/homelogic. Click on the “New User?” prompt to create an account. Please note you will need your student’s CBE ID number to register as a new user.

Students Leave a Mark on Crescent Heights

Recent grade 12 graduating students, Miranda C., Gloria T., and Sean R. wanted to leave a permanent mark at the school they have attended for the past three years. Very much involved with art, drama, music and sports at Crescent Heights, these busy teens designed and painted the pillar at "Cowboy Corner" as a tribute to athletics at Crescent Heights High and to highlight the diversity of programs at our dynamic school.
