Grade 9

The holiday season is her and so is virtual learning.  It is going to be an adjustment for all of us involved but I plan on making it an enjoyable and engaging experience.  The grade seven class are continuing their exploration of the relationship between decimals, fractions and percents; the grade eight class will be performing operations with fraction; the grade nine class are finishing off their unit on rational numbers.  Let's all do our best when learning new things at the end of 2020 so we can go into 2021 feeling confident and accomplished.

Happy Holidays & Merry Christmas!

Junior High School Math

This month the grade 7 math class have been learning about transformations by graphing translations, reflections and rotations on a coordinate grid. 

The grade 8 math class have been learning about adding/subtracting and multiplying/dividing integers. They’ve discovered that we use integers when we talk about weather, finances, sports, geography and science.

The grade 9 math class have been performing multiple operations with positive and negative rational numbers (fractions and decimals).

Junior High School Math 

Wela’lin!  I would like to welcome everyone back to LSK for the start of another school year. So far, LSK’s junior high school math classes have been making up for lost time. The grade seven class is learning how to add and subtract integers; the grade eights are investigating patterns in square roots; and the grade nines are exploring exponent laws. The students are also learning how to use technology in the classroom so they become more familiar with it at home. I am looking forward to a full year of exploring and problem solving.

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 all we have been through during these unprecedented times. Even though the school experience is going to feel different this year, it is still going to be great to see everyone again. With the pandemic still ongoing, there is going to be an emphasis on digital learning, 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.

Hello LSK students and parents! The weather is getting warmer and some restrictions are being lifted. However, we should all still make sure we are being smart and safe. Even though the school has been on lockdown there has still been some learning taking place through Google Classroom: the grade seven students have been working on algebra and solving equations; the grade eight students are continuing to work on algebra and patterns; and the grade nine students are continuing work on polynomials. I’m looking forward to seeing all my students in school as soon as it is safe to do so. Until then, be safe, be kind, and be well.

Hello LSK students and parents!

Firstly, I hope that everyone is feeling safe and healthy during this unprecedented time in our modern history. It has been a challenge for everyone. Even though the school has been on lockdown there has still been a good amount of learning taking place through Google Classroom: the grade seven students have been working on adding and subtracting fractions; the grade eight students have been working on algebra and patterns; and the grade nine students are continuing work on polynomials.

I’m looking forward to seeing all my students in school as soon as it is safe to do so. Until then, be safe, be kind, and be well.
