Business Education

SHSS Business Education – Accounting 11 and 12 students compete in the Year End Monopoly Competition.
This year’s Accounting 11 and 12 students work in teams using basic accounting to create strong businesses capable of beating out the competition.  Once the game is complete, the teams will evaluate their financial position and attempt to convince everyone that their business strategy is the most successful.

Yoga for Chrissie

In honor of Chrissy Archibald and her contributions to the communities where she lived, some local yoga instructors are holding a “Yoga for Chrissy” session in the Stanley Humphries,  activity room on Monday, June 19th from 3:30-4:30 pm. Donations will go to the Castlegar Homeless Shelter.

Staff, students and community members are welcome. Please bring your own yoga mat (we have extras if you don’t have one).



SHSS held a Recognition Celebration on Tuesday evening to honor the students who have made an impression on their school! The successes we recognized varied from academic accomplishments, to citizenship, to traits such as kindness which make SHSS a better place to be and learn!

Well done, students!

Core Competency Assessment

New for the June Report Card: Core Competency Self-Assessment
Students and teachers in BC have been working with a revised K-9 curriculum this year. A new component of the curriculum has been a focus on developing the following Core Competencies: Communication, Creative Thinking, Critical Thinking, Positive Personal and Cultural Identity, Personal Awareness and Responsibility, and Social Responsibility. Students are not formally assessed on these competencies, but are expected to reflect/self-assess on their learning in relation to them. According to the Ministry of Education Reporting Orders, students in BC will engage in a self-assessment of the Core Competencies that is to be included in the end of year report card. In School District No. 20, schools will be sending home a student self-assessment of one of the Core Competencies with the June report card.
 Stanley Humphries students and teachers will focus their assessment on competencies surrounding our focus areas of personal responsibility and self-regulation. You can expect these student self-reflection documents to come home at the end of the year.
