This month in the world of junior high school mathematics, the grade 7 class will be learning about transformations by graphing translations, reflections and rotations on a coordinate grid. The grade 8 class have been learning about the Pythagorean theorem before investigating how to multiply and divide integers. They’ll soon discover that we use integers when we talk about weather, finances, sports, geography and science. The grade 9 class will be learning how to perform multiple operations with positive and negative rational numbers (fractions and decimals).
Wela’lin! I would like to welcome everyone back to LSK for the start of another school year. I have been looking forward to returning to the building to work with staff and students after our topsy-turvy year last year. With the pandemic still ongoing, there is going to be an emphasis on self-care and mutual respect. It is only by working together that we all will not only just survive, but thrive. I’m excited to help my students thrive this year and into the future.
Well, this school year has been quite a rollercoaster. I’m happy that we’ll be able to end it with in school learning at LSK. This will be great for all of junior high, especially the grade nine class who will be writing exams soon. They will have the opportunity to write a practice exam the week before their official examinations so I’m hopeful attendance will be high so all the grade nine students can take advantage of this opportunity. The grade seven and eight classes will continue learning about algebra and graphing, laying the foundations for next year.
There has been a lot of positive progress from the junior high students this year. I want to thank all of them for adapting so well to the ever-changing conditions that have been placed on them as the year moved along. I hope you all have a fun, relaxing and rewarding summer!
There is going to be a change to our online learning schedule. Check it out! You will still use the same link (the one in this classroom) to log on but a few things to take note of...
- Classes will not start at 9:30am.
- Lunch is from 11:30am to 12:30pm.
- Monday and Wednesday from 2:30pm to 3:30pm are for extra help or support with finishing up assignments. This is a good time to reach out to your teachers or EAs for help.
You have Friday afternoons off!

All students will be evaluated and assessed on their virtual learning and attendance will be taken by the teacher. All students are expected to attend class virtually. See schedule below for student’s meeting schedule times.
Winter has gone and spring has arrived! To start the new season, the grade seven class is learning how to use patterns to solve equations, the grade eight class is using ratios and rate to compare numbers and quantities, and the grade nine class is learning how to solve algebraic problems containing powers and variables.
