Hello BETA Minischool,
We hope that you are all doing well and hope that your child is enjoying the program thus far. As many of you know, we have report cards coming home soon and we just wanted to clarify what you will see. You may have noticed that they are not directly attached to MyEd. This is because we have physical copies that will be handed out on the 23rd of November. We have reviewed the reports with the students to ensure they know where they are at. Please email myself (Mr. Murray) if you have any questions or concerns!
“Continuous learning is the minimum requirement for success in any field”
Hope you are all doing well and that your child is enjoying this class so far (we do like to give them work;)). I have attached a form for the Volunteer Criminal Record Check (click the Mentorship Letter link above) if your child does have a mentor that is not either myself or Ms. Neumann. It is a fill in the blank style document but please feel free to contact me if there are any issues. Thank you very much.
Please get your username from Ms. Neumann.
The challenge will take place next Tuesday, November 14th.
One of our classroom roles is for students to go around the school and collect the recycled bottles. They help our janitor with separating garbage from the recycling. In turn, we get to keep the money collected from the bottles.
We are looking for parent volunteers to help us drive the bottles every 2 weeks to a local bottle depot. It takes about 1 hour to load up the car, sort the bottles, and take in the collections. This is our way of fundraising money in the mini school for Minischool parties or special events.
If you are interested in helping us out, please contact Ms. Neumann @ email@example.com
Thank you for your continual support!
We are going on a fieldtrip on October 19th to the Writers Festival.
If you are a parent of a child in the minischool and would like to volunteer for the day, please comment on this post. We will only contact you if you have been selected to volunteer.

As we move into the dark ages (of Feudalism) we will be looking into the Macabre and the environments of horror writing at this time and in a modern context. This quote was as playful as I could find for the subject but I think puts it nicely. We will start to explore the makings of the Black Death in relation to Science, Math, English and Social Studies. Scare ya later,
Where: École Alpha Secondary School (large gym)
When: Oct 12, 2017 at 6:30pm (2hr workshop)
Presenter: Christine M. Yu, M.A. Registered Clinical Counsellor
This interactive session will help parents and students understand anxiety and how it presents in children and adolescents. A detailed description of anxiety will be included: what it is, what it looks like across the developmental life span, and when it becomes problematic. Factors that contribute to the development and maintenance of anxiety will also be discussed.
The second half of the workshop will offer the parents and students a step-by-step guide of how to manage anxiety using evidence-based treatment. Parents will be provided with information about what to consider when collaborating with the school and mental health professionals and resources. A Q&A period will also be included, although questions are encouraged throughout the workshop.
Hello Beta Mini School grade 8’s,
As promised here are some quotes of the week that will be used as a prompt for an activity next week. As we are starting with the Rise and fall of Civilizations I thought I would add something eluding to our topics. Enjoy and have a good field trip tomorrow!
