Report Cards & MyEd BC Family Portal

On Monday, November 22 we published Term 1 Report Cards and updated Transcripts to both the MyEd BC Student Portal and to the Family Portal.

Report Cards – hard copy

Each year, we generate a list of those families who would like a hard copy of their child’s report card to be picked up at the office, or a digital version (a PDF file) to be directly emailed. If you would like your name on this list, please email Meegan Waters, our front desk receptionist: mwaters@sd83.bc.ca

MyEd BC – Family Portal

Families received a series of emails over the last week letting you know we are moving from ParentConnect to MyEducation BC’s Family Portal, along with instructions and contact information if you required support.

To login, a link is provided on our website under the Parent menu. Once you successfully login, there is really good information to access, including attendance, transcript information, and student schedules.

Orange Shirt Day & Welcome Back BBQ

Today SAS is recognizing Orange Shirt Day – a day to listen, to learn, to support and to acknowledge the history of Indigenous culture and people in Canada, including the long-lasting effects of Residential Schools.

Tomorrow is the first National Day for Truth and Reconciliation.  The day honours the lost children and Survivors of residential schools, their families and communities. Public commemoration of the tragic and painful history and ongoing impacts of residential schools is a vital component of the reconciliation process.

Orange Shirt Day is a legacy of the St. Joseph Mission Residential School commemoration project held in Williams Lake, BC, Canada, on May 2013. 

This event grew from Phyllis Jack Webstad’s story.  As a young 6-year-old indigenous girl, Phyllis’ shiny new orange shirt was taken away from her on the first day of school at the St. Joseph Mission.  The way she was treated at this residential school made her feel like she didn’t matter, that no one cared, and that she was worthless. 

At lunch our school will come together to acknowledge Orange Shirt Day and to enjoy a BBQ lunch served by our Leadership class and staff.
