Weekly Outline: Dec. 4th to Dec. 9th

December is upon us and Christmas is fast approaching. There will be lots of great things happening this month. We will be organizing for a Secret Santa. Participation is voluntary but it should be fun. You will be required to spend @ least $5 on a gift if you participate. We will be getting a list of participants this week.

There is also wreath making. If you are interested in making a wreath this week talk to Nikki and she will be organizing that. Wreaths making can start at 2:15 daily unless you have an elective. 

Clam/Cockle digging will be happening next week. The aboriginal education department and Metlakatla and working out times and process.

This week the school will be having their monthly PAC Meeting  please encourage your parents to get involved.

Cell phone usage has become a problem again. Students are not using the pouches or lieing about having their phones. Well up to this point the staff has been doing their best to work with students the staff has been met with rude behaviour and obfuscation. Thus the staff has agreed to implement the following rules:

Cellphone Policy

This weeks Cell Phone Tokens for positive cell phone usage:

  • David Swanson
  • Rubbyn Steppler
  • Zack Hill
  • Cordel Ryan

Technology Usage: The teachers and I have come up with a better outlined and more specific technology usage policy. It has come to our attention that students have been primarily utilizing YouTube in order to watch it rather than for music. We do understand that at this point Spotify is not a viable alternative but we are looking into ways to make this available for students to listen to music. This would also help with our excessive bandwidth usage. 

As such we are instituting two more structures around Technology usage:

  1. You will be given three warnings if you are using technology inappropriately which includes watching clearly watching YouTube rather than using it as a tool for listing to music and focusing. On the fourth time you will have your technology rights suspended for the day and be given off-line work. This technology suspension will communicated to all staff.
  2. In order to reward positive behaviour and use of technology there will also be a “Technology and Behviour Token” given out to select students at the beginning of each week. Much like the Cell Phone token, you will be able to use this during the last week of December in order to submit for a draw on a prize which will be around a $75 value.
