High School Resource

Hello there everyone! Hard to believe one month is now gone and only nine months left.  But who is counting.  So far, so good. 

The learning centre is once again accommodating students from grade seven to grade twelve.  Teachers and students have been great and have shown confidence in the learning centre and its staff.  This year the Learning Centre is also offering Tourism for a couple of students who need the course.  This just started and the students have been learning about Nova Scotia and the importance of its Tourism industry.

Well, that's it for me.
Cheers!  Mr. Mac

Welcome Back

Welcome back

Welcome back, welcome back, welcome back
Welcome back, welcome back

‘Cause we got him on the spot

Welcome back everyone!

Historians have labeled different generations over the years. The Greatest Generation was the kid who grew up during World War Two. The Baby Boomers were the kids who grew up during the Cold War and the Polio Years. I think it is only fitting that this generation of kids should be known as the Bravest Generation. Over the past school year I have seen students come in to LSK during a once in a one hundred year pandemic and function as if nothing was happening around them. That takes bravery and courage. So to them I salute you and your generation. Your generation has the right stuff and I am confident that the beacon of light and hope is being passed on to a brave group of young people.

So congratulations to this graduating year of 2021. The best is yet to come. Cheers! Mr. Mac

April showers bring May flowers. that bloom in the rain. I'm a poet and I don't know it, I hope I don't blow it. Enough of Bob Dylan and now on with the show. It has been very nice for me to see over the last few months the students showing confidence in coming to the Learning Centre. That confidence is now being felt by the teachers who are embracing the learning Centre and what we can offer by scheduling more students to our daily roster. Once again a big thanks to everyone for showing so much bravery throughout this pandemic. 

Peace,
Mr. Mac

March break is over and now it's time to hit the books for the last haul of the year. Time seems to have sped up quite a bit recently and well it seems to be a good time to reflect on the year so far. The learning centre has come a long way since September of last year. Students now want to be in the centre to do their work and they do not see it as a type of punishment. The team is strong and most of all caring so a big thanks to Autumn and Roddy for completing this team. I would like to say how proud I am of the students and staff for not only functioning but succeeding during a once in a one-
hundred-year pandemic. You have shown the world that you have the right stuff and once this is over here is to the next hundred years of LSK.
 
Cheers,
Mr. Mac

Well it’s now time to say good bye to February and welcome March. Even though February is the shortest month it also feels like the longest month of the year. The Learning Centre has been very busy this past month. Most days the tables are filled with students who either need extra help in a one-on-one setting or students who need a quiet place to study.  Teachers have been great with sending students and their work down to the Centre and there is a real sense of collaboration. 

Well that's it for me. Just remember spring is almost here.

Cheers,
Mr. Mac

An end and a new beginning. This is the time of the year that students say goodbye to the first half of their academic year and hello to a new set of courses. The Learning Centre has been of to a very good start in 2021 with a sense of great positivity. Our seats are full and we are working together as a great team and that means students and staff alike. Well good luck to those students still writing and remember we are now almost half way through the year.

Cheers, Mr Mac

Happy New Year! It's about time to kick 2020 to the curb. Now that 2020 is in the history books it is time to look forward to
a new and brighter year. I am very proud of the students who worked hard through the last shut down and carried on
business as usual. For those that didn’t no problem we will pick up where we left off. Safety is most important and trumps
everything else going on. So, one again let’s get at it and look forward to a new and exciting new year.
 
Thanks, and peace,
Mr. Mac

Greetings from the Learning Center. 

Well, it has been quite a year so far. Lots of changes and the Learning Center is a part of these changes. Students now have to have appointments to get in or are recommended to attend full day sessions by their teachers. I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has contributed to this year's success of the Learning Center. In no particular order, I would like to thank the Middle High teachers, the High School teachers, Administration and Agent 99 from the library. Most importantly I would like to thank Autumn and Simon for being the best team a guy like me could ask for. 

Well that's it for me.

Cheers!
Mr Mac

Boo! Well I'm not sure which is scarier 2020 or Norman Bates. Let’s just say 2020. Well now we are at the end of October and all is well considering. Students are set up on schedules and for the most part are abiding by the times.  Students are working on a variety of subjects such as teacher created work which the student brings with them to class to Social Skills and Project Based learning assignments. 

Happy Halloween!
