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.

food bank donationsIn Chrissy Archibald’s memory, we at Stanley Humphries Secondary School, Twin Rivers Elementary School and Castlegar Primary School would like to honor Chrissy and the Archibald family by giving to our community in a way that Chrissy would have loved.

Please bring one item to Room 201 at SHSS between Wednesday, June 7th to Wednesday, June 14th or to The Castlegar Community Harvest Food Bank (614 Christina Place, Castlegar, B.C.). The Harvest Food Bank stated that there is always a need for hygiene products (e.g. soap, toothpaste, toothbrushes, feminine hygiene products etc.) in addition to food items.

Thank you in advance for your support towards the Archibald family. Chrissy graduated from SHSS in 2004. She was an important part of our school community. Her parents, Greg and Barb Archibald are retired teachers in our local school district and have touched many young lives.
