Course Outlines/Curricular Links

You can find a summary of the Alberta curriculum for grade eight here. The teachers take the curricula and formulate a year plan, outlining when the concepts will be covered and in what order. Our year plans will be available shortly.

Class Timetables

Here are the timetables for the 8 classes. Note that we operate on a 6 day cycle, so to determine which day we are on please consult our Connect Family Google Calendar.

Weekly Updates/Blog

The grade eight teachers and students will be using Edmodo ( to keep track of assignments and due dates. They will also provide a weekly email update to all parents where they will share some of the events and activities for the upcoming week.


Homework is communicated via Edmodo (, including due dates, etc.  As well, we will be sending home Weekly Updates. If students are not completed assignments on time, this will be communicated to parents via email. If it is a project, and a student is significantly behind on the completion of this project, emails may be sent home to encourage work from home, or to inform parents of work habits in the classroom.
