Paul Kane Communication Tools


The school year is over and what a fantastic year it was! We’d like to call your attention to a few details on what to look for at this point in time, as well as where to find it.


Principal’s Message – Congratulations to all students on a successful 2016-2017 school year. We are looking forward to 2017-2018 with new challenges and experiences. I wish all of you a fantastic summer!


Marks – You may view your child’s final marks by logging on to the Parent Portal in PowerSchool.


Diploma Marks - Students will access their final blended marks through Alberta Education’s MyPass. If your child has not already done so, please have them register to create their login and password and receive their confidential PIN number. Go to mypass.alberta.ca Here you will be able to view marks, track graduation progress and order transcripts.


Timetables for 2017-2018 – Students going into grades 11 and 12 have already picked up their timetables and made any necessary adjustments. If you did not pick up your timetable this week, you will find your schedule in PowerSchool in mid-August. If you see a “hole” in your timetable, it is because we were unable to schedule all of your course requests. We would be happy to help you choose an alternate course. Based on your final marks, you may need to alter the courses you are taking. Students are welcome to come to our Student Services office in person on a first-come, first served basis according to the following schedule.

We will not be scheduling appointments or making changes via email.


Thurs. Aug. 24                     Fri. Aug 25                 Mon. Aug 28              Tues, Aug. 29
10:00-11:30                          8:00-11:30                   ----------------               -----------------

12:00-3:00                           12:00-3:00                   12:00-3:00                  1:00-3:00
GRADE 10 ONLY                GRADE 10-12            GRADE 10-12            GRADE 10-12

 

If you need your timetable adjusted and are unable to come to Paul Kane between August 24-29, please line up outside Student Services on the first day of school, Wednesday, August 30.

 

Your timetable may change even if you did not request an adjustment.  If this is the case, you should find that the courses are the same, but where they are placed on your schedule is different.  These changes are a result of the need to balance class sizes, changes to teaching assignments or the addition of sections of a course to the school schedule.

We will not be adjusting timetables based on student requests for specific teachers. 

 

Fees– An invoice was emailed separately for any outstanding fees. As a last resort, unpaid accounts are referred to a collection agency as per school district directive.  We would appreciate prompt response to this request.  Please contact our Office Manager, Karen Tubman at Karen.tubman@spschools.org if you are unable to pay.
