Student Agenda Books
 
During the first week of school all Delview studentswill receive an Agenda Book. They are designedto be a practical and convenient way of organizinginformation and managing time. The section onDelview’s policies at the front of the book is a mostvaluable guide to the school. While teachers willbe spending some time going over the contents of the book with students
-
and reinforcing their useon a regular basis
-
we would encourage all stu-dents and their parents to familiarize themselveswith it. There is room in the book to record marksand to keep track of student progress

Principal’s Message
 
It’s hard to believe that another summer holiday israpidly drawing to an end and that we will soon be returningto school. I hope that you have all had a chance to enjoy sometime with friends and family to relax and recharge. Over theholiday our staff has been working hard getting the schoolready for a smooth opening. Our office staff has ensured thatadministratively we are ready to go, our counselors have re-viewed and corrected student schedules while our custodialcrew has the building in great shape.
 
For students new to Delview, I would like to makeyou aware that Delview follows a semester program. Thismeans that students will have four courses for the first half of the year (until Jan. 28
th
) with their remaining four classesstarting on Jan. 31
st
. This is shown in the student schedules being sent home with this newsletter. While we have madeattempts to check all of the student’s schedules, please reviewthe schedule that you have received to ensure a balanced loadof academic and elective classes between the two semesters.For the 2010/2011 school year we will be continue-ing the inclusion of teacher collaboration time in our schedule.By slightly lengthening the teaching time each day and byreorganizing our Teacher Professional Development time wehave created 16 opportunities for our teachers to work togeth-er on ongoing curriculum development and the developmentand sharing of teaching strategies and methods. A focus for many of our teachers this past year has been on more authen-tic assessment, through the use of the collaborative time, weexpect this development to continue.
 
For students and families, the structural change thatyou will see with the collaborative time are the 16 late startdays occurring on Wednesdays throughout the school year.On these days, first period will start at 9:35 with all periodsshortened to 65 minutes for the day. The schedule of thesecollaboration days is included in this newsletter and they arealso shown in the fridge magnet schedule sent home with this package. On these days students are expected to be in class for 9:35. For those students who must be dropped of early, a roomwill be provided where they can gather and quietly work onhomework etc.
 
We look forward to meeting our new Grade 8 class – the class of 2015 – and to working with our returning studentsas we anticipate another exciting and successful year for theDevliew community. We’ll be holding grade assemblies dur-ing the second week of school to provide information to allstudents about the coming school year.
