Term 2 Report Cards - Available online Friday March 10th
Term 2 report cards for Handsworth Secondary School will be available on the parent portal this Friday, March 10th.  On Friday, your child’s term 2 report card(s) will appear on the right side of your Parent Portal screen under “Published Reports” as a pdf document.  Before the publishing date on March 10th you will only see your child’s Term 1 pdf report cards showing under “Published Reports”. Please remember students in grades 8 and 9 may receive two different pdf report cards as varying forms of assessment (performance standards vs. percents based assessment) use different report card templates.
 
Paper report cards will no longer be printed by the school. If you would like to keep a hard copy of any of your child’s report cards please print them before July 1,2017 as they will not remain on the portal after this date.

Those parents who have already created a portal account should be able to access the report card(s) on Friday.  Please try to log-in ahead of time to make sure that you are still able to access the system. You may be required to update your password as they expire every 90 days. If you have forgotten your passwork click “I forgot my password”.  If you have any problems accessing the parent portal so please refer to the Quick Links: Parent Portal - Report Cards resource section on our webpage (https://www.sd44.ca/school/handsworth/About/parentportal/Pages/default.aspx). As well, attached is the MyEd Tips for parents.

During spring break the school will be closed. We will not be able to assist you with any questions about report cards or the parent portal until school returns on March 27th. Please do not call the North Vancouver School District office with school based report card or parent portal questions as they will not be able to assist you.

Thank you.

    Popping the Bubble Wrap for Children’s Health Early Learning Dialogue 2017 with Dr. Mariana Brussoni An Event for North Vancouver School District Staff, Early Learning Foundations (ELF) Preschool and Childcare Providers, and North Shore Early Learning Community Partners Most of us have childhood memories of long hours spent outdoors and away from watchful eyes of adults. The childhood of today looks very different, with more time spent indoors, supervised, in structured activities, and in front of screens. This interactive workshop will explore the effects of changing childhoods and limited outdoor risky play time on children’s health and development, as well as current strategies and efforts to restore balance in BC and elsewhere. Dr. Mariana Brussoni is an Associate Professor in the Department of Pediatrics and the School of Population and Public Health at the University of British Columbia. She is also an investigator with the BC Children’s Hospital Research Institute and the BC Injury Research & Prevention Unit. Trained as a developmental psychologist, she investigates child injury prevention, parenting and children’s risky play.
