Semester one Final Achievement Reports
Submitted Submitted by Aneta Costin on Wed, 02/08/2012 - 11:04

Semester 1 final achievement reports were issued to students today. If your child was not present to get the report, please ensure your child picks up the report from the office on Wednesday.
 
Along with the reports, 579 full-time students received at least one letter of commendation with their report card. Letters are issued to full-time students who have: 1) achieved an average of at least 80%; 2) achieved an average that exceeds their November average; or 3) demonstrated an exemplary attendance record.
 
Yesterday we met with students in Grade 9/10 and Grade 11/12 assemblies and I shared the following school results with the students.
 
When taken as a whole, the overall average mark this semester was 76%. A large majority of the marks were in the 70-100% range. The average number of absences/student/class was 6 and the average number of lates/student/class was 3.
 
When you review the Semester 1 report card with your child, there are several indicators to discuss. Look at your child’s result compared with the result for the class. The teachers have provided summary comments on your child’s work over the five months. They have also graded your child on six ‘Learning Skills.’ Although Learning Skills are not factored into the final mark, greater achievement on the Learning Skills generally leads to improved learning. The report card also shows classes absent and classes late. Please review those relative to the school averages of 6 and 3.
 
As you know we have a serious focus at Forest Hill Collegiate on ‘time-on-task,” the amount of time students are in-class and engaged in learning with their teachers and fellow students. I explained in the assemblies yesterday the major reason for this focus is the close connection between ‘time-on-task’ and achievement. These are the figures for Semester 1 relating absence and achievement:
 
Absence Range       Average Mark
00-03                            79%
04-08                            77%
09-12                            73%
More than 12                 65%
 
The pattern of a drop in the average mark connected to an increase in the number of classes missed is repeated through every grade in the school.
 
In the assemblies, I told the students my goals for Semester 2: 1) 100% of the students to improve their average mark on the April report card; 2) the average mark in April to reach 80% for the first time; and 3) reduce the average number of absences from 6 to 5. All this is achievable if together we strive for excellence from the beginning of the semester. In the last few years, we have managed to increase the average mark and decrease the average absence. I think as a school we can move further in both areas.
 
If you have questions about the report card, please contact me and I will happily go over the report with you.

Final Examinations
Submitted Submitted by Aneta Costin on Wed, 01/25/2012 - 13:49

Final Examinations
Students who wish tutorial help from their teachers are encouraged to come to school Wednesday morning. The list of rooms where teachers will be located for extra help is posted outside the main office.
 
The following information has been provided to students. Please review this with you child as you check the exam schedule one last time to ensure you and your child know when specific exams are being written.
=============
 
On Wednesday, January 25, subject tutorials will be held from 9:00 am to 11:00 am. Please make arrangements with your teacher to get the extra help and clarifications you require before the exam period begins.
 
Exam start times are 9:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. Consult your exam schedule to verify the date and time of your exam. Please check your schedule carefully--if you miss an exam, you will receive a mark of “0”.
 
Instructions for examinations are listed on the back of your exam schedule. Some of our exam procedures have changed. Please READ these instructions. If you need assistance understanding the instructions, please come to the office prior to the start of exams.
 
Some key points are:
 
·         Plan to arrive at the school at least 30 minutes before your exam. Plan to be in your exam room at least 15 minutes before your exam begins in order to return your textbook. No extra time will be provided to students who arrive late. Students who are more than 30 minutes late must sign in at the Vice-Principal’s office before going to the exam room.
 
·         All textbooks and school-owned materials must be returned on exam day. Students without textbooks should go to the main office at least 30 minutes BEFORE their exam begins to receive an admit slip. Students arriving to their exam without a textbook, or an admit slip will not be allowed in.
 
·         Bring all required supplies, as allowed by your teacher, to the examination room. There will be no sharing of materials.
 
·         Food is not allowed in the exam room. Clear water bottles without labels are permitted. No bags, hats, coats, pencil cases or electronic devices (excluding approved calculators) will be permitted in the exam room.
 
·         If a student is found with an electronic device during the exam, it will invalidate the student’s exam. Do not bring phones, iPods, or other electronics into the exam room. If you don’t have safe storage for your electronics, please consult the office for assistance.
 
·         No student may hand in the examination or leave the room before the end of the examination time.
 
·         No bathroom breaks will be permitted during the exam.
 
·         Students should not talk once they have entered the exam room. Students should not touch the materials on the desks until instructed to do so by the presiding teacher.
 
·         All students involved in cheating, no matter what their role, will receive a mark of “0” for the full evaluation. This policy will apply regardless of when the cheating is discovered – that is before, during or after the evaluation opportunity occurs.
 
·         The Library will be open for quiet study on the mornings of Wednesday, January 25 through Wednesday, February 1, between 9:30am-12:30pm.
 
·         The main office is always open to help.
 
For parents/guardians: If your child is too sick to write an examination:
1.    Phone the school before the examination is written.
2.    Request a Missed Evaluation Procedures Form to be emailed to your parent/guardian from the Main Office.
3.    Complete all necessary documentation.
4.    Submit the above form(s) to Mr. Vanek or Ms. Sivarajah within two school days of the missed evaluation.
5.    Once we receive the required documentation, Mr. Vanek or Ms. Sivarajah will arrange for your child to write an evaluation comparable to the missed examination.

Important Information
Submitted Submitted by Aneta Costin on Mon, 01/16/2012 - 11:24

 
1. Exam Preparation Workshop
The following information has been posted on flyers around the school...
* Do you get nervous when you write exams?
* Do you have effective study habits that reduce your stress level and increase your performance on exams?
* Do you know how to implement different methods when preparing for different subject exams?
  Learn how to do all that on Tuesday, January 17 at Lunch in Room 111!
 
2. AfterMath Continues
Students who wish to get their math homework done before they leave school and get help with any difficult questions are invited to come to the main office at the end of the school day and join the other ‘Mathletes.’ AfterMath will continue for the remainder of January and will be available during the day starting on the tutorial day and running until exams finish.
 
3. 2012-2013 Course Information
On Thursday, January 19, teachers will take time in class to describe the courses available in their subject area for next year. For example, Grade 10 History teachers will describe the options available to students in Grade 11 History and Social Sciences. That process will be repeated in February when students are in Semester 2 courses. This is a lead-in to the course selection process for the next school year. To assist students with the course selection process, all returning students will be involved in Course Selection Information assemblies later in February. Students will also have the opportunity to have one-on-one time with their counsellor to receive guidance in selecting courses. I will outline the full process for you in February.
 
4. Optional Attendance
Students who currently attend Forest Hill Collegiate and wish to be considered for admission to another TDSB high school for September must complete and deliver an Optional Attendance application to the requested school by the end of January. The application form must be signed by the current school before it can be submitted. Optional Attendance application forms are available in the main office.
 
4. School Council
The next School Council meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, January 25 at 7:00 p.m. in the Staff Room at FHCI. The agenda for the meeting will follow.
 
6. Theft of student property
Our records show we have had 17 thefts of student property since school began in September. In a few instances, items that were left in a classroom or the library were not there when the student went back to retrieve them. Some thefts have occurred from lockers. Some have occurred in the boys’ change room. It is disheartening for the school community to know that some students will steal things that don’t belong to them. It is maddening when your child is the victim. It is devastating when your child has a hand in the theft.
 
With regard to the change rooms:
Please tell you child, as we do, not to leave anything of value in the change rooms. During PHE classes, students may leave their valuables in the secure storage and retrieve them at the end of the class. In my years here, we have never had a loss from the secure storage area. Students sometimes try to hide values at the bottom of bag, but that is not a reliable strategy.
 
With regard to lockers:
1) It is important that students not share a locker with anyone. Sharing increases the risk of theft. Every student is assigned an individual locker. We have a record of locker assignments if your child has forgotten where the assigned locker is.
2) It is important that students not share their combination with anyone. In some thefts from lockers, it appears the lock was opened with the combination.
3) It is important that students use a sturdy lock that is more tamper resistant. I have attached a photo of the lock that we sell from the main office. The cost is $7. This lock offers a number of increased security features that make tampering with it far more difficult than with the standard combination lock.
 
If your child has any information about who may be responsible for thefts this year, please encourage your child to speak to a teacher or other adult at the school. An alternative is to make an anonymous report at 416-222-TIPS.
 
It is a sad reality that, given the opportunity, some people will steal. If your child has an irreplaceable item of value that is vulnerable to theft, please encourage your child to leave the item at home.

December Activities
Submitted Submitted by Aneta Costin on Wed, 12/14/2011 - 08:12

 
 1. Annual December Food Drive

I am asking you to cause me a problem. From the beginning of this week until December 23, we are holding our annual drive in support of the food bank. I want you to donate so much for the food bank that I won’t know where to put it all. I want to arrive here each morning from tomorrow until December 23 to find the collection bin in the foyer stuffed to the top with non-perishable food items and to find additional bags of non-perishable food on the floor around the bin because they can’t fit in the bin. I will spend some time every day emptying and storing the collected food. It may be that my office will have to become the temporary storage facility. Please, cause me a storage problem. Stuff your child’s backpack with food for the food bank. Fill up the grocery bags, put the bags in the car, and then drop them off here when you drop off your child at school. Tonight I will clear the shelves in my cupboards at home and bring in whatever I have that qualifies for the food bank. Everything! Join me in doing the same.
 
2. School Council Meeting
The meeting will take place on Wednesday December 14, 2011. - agenda. You are all invited to attend—Staff Room, Main Floor, 7:00 p.m.
 
3. Grad Photos
Graduating students may schedule an appointment for a grad photo by LifeTouch until Wednesday of next week. The photographers can remain until 5:00 each day until then. This is the photo that will be displayed in the annual grad photo that will be displayed in the school. The photographers have added extra time slots to ensure all students have an opportunity for a photo. For further information, see the flyer that was given to grads, or contact Mr. Vanek, vice principal, 416 393-1860 x 20012.
 
4. Miss Julie
The annual fall drama production runs for two glorious performances, Thursday and Friday nights this week at 7:00 p.m. If your child has anything to do with the play or if you just want a delightful night out, please join us.
 
5. Markbook Printouts next week
Printouts of student marks to date will be distributed to all students by all teachers next week. Please ensure you receive the printout for each of your child’s courses and review the results with your child. If you have questions or concerns, please contact the teacher, VP or me.
 
6. Tuesday, December 20
We start the day with a staff meeting and so classes will begin at 9:50. We end the day with a hockey game against the police from 53 Division. Players from our boys’ and girls’ teams will suit up and take to the ice, hoping to repeat last year’s victory over our local folks in blue. (I think we won last year…) Tickets for the game, $3, may be purchased until Friday from a student’s period 1 teacher or from the main office. On Monday, the price jumps to $5. A ticket is required for admission. Otherwise, students attend classes. Money raised goes to the work of the School Action Team which promotes a safe, healthy environment at FHCI. See the  flyer for information and incentive.
 
7. Friday, December 23.
There will be no cafeteria service on Friday, December 23. On that day, staff takes over the kitchen in the morning to cook up a mess of pancakes for the students. We start cooking at the crack of dawn and open the cafeteria doors to the long line up of students at 8:00 a.m. The teachers are good cooks and with those pancakes come soft butter, warm syrup, and cool whipped cream. All this for a $2 donation to the School Action Team.
 
8. AfterMath
AfterMath continues right up until December 23 and then resumes in January. AfterMath is an opportunity for students to get their math homework done before they leave school and get any help they need to make sure it is done right. There is a growing group of students that gathers each day after school and these ‘Mathletes’ say it is really helping with difficult concepts or filling smaller holes in understanding. There is always room for more, so encourage your child to come to the main office after school for some ‘AfterMath.’
 
9. Classes December 19-23
Classes will run as normally scheduled next week, despite the impending holiday period that follows. Teachers will continue with their curriculum; new material will be covered. It is important that students attend classes until the 23rd so they don’t risk falling behind. This week differs from the elementary school model where there are more festive activities during class time. In fact since we are a semestered school, we are entering our busiest, most productive period as students prepare for end-of-course evaluations. Please be sure your child attends.

Grade 9 and 10 students
Submitted Submitted by admin on Mon, 11/28/2011 - 15:39

To parent/guardians of Grade 9 and 10 students at FHCI…
 
I recently sent an email to parents/guardians of students in Grade 9 and 10 taking mathematics at FHCI this semester. I am now sending information to parents/guardians of all Grade 9 and 10 students.
 
The Independent Learning Centre (ILC) of the Ministry of Education offers online tutoring for all students in Grade 9 and 10 in Ontario. Tutoring is offered from 5:30 to 9:30 from Sunday to Thursday in English, Math and Science. This email is specifically about the tutoring available in Mathematics.
 
In order for students to access the service, the students must be signed on with the ILC. To make the process easier for students, TDSB has forwarded the Ministry identification number and school name for each student in Grade 9 and 10 in the school board. They have not provided student names or other identifying information. Students are not required to access the Homework Help site—it is available as an option for them to use.
 
If you do not want your child to register at the Homework Help website, please complete the bottom of the attached letter and return it to me in the main office. I will arrange for your child’s registration to be deleted.
 
The program is explained in detail in the letter that is attached to this email. If you have further questions, please contact me.

Students who are required to write the EQAO Grade 10 Literacy Test will be at school on Thursday, March 31 from 8:30 a.m. Most students will finish the test by 12:00 noon. English Language Learners and students with an IEP have access to extra time to a maximum of double time.
 
No other students will be at school that day. There are no scheduled classes and all teachers will be engaged in the supervision of the EQAO Literacy Test.
 
 
B) Special Appeal for Japan
Some of our students have come together during the March Break to organize a fund-raising initiative in support of the people affected by the earthquake and tsunami that hit Japan about two weeks ago. Those students have a close connection to the people of Japan. We will make fund-raising opportunities available for you during Parent-Teacher Interviews on Thursday. On Tuesday, March 29, we will hold a "Toonie Tuesday" drive with the goal of collecting $2 from every student and staff member. I have attached a flyer that is posted in the foyer next to the television monitor that cycles through 90 photos of the devastation in Japan.
 
Please encourage your child to donate to this important initiative on Tuesday, and please consider making a donation on Thursday during the interview periods.
 
Donations will go to the Canadian Red Cross. Thank you for your support.

From the Canadian Red Cross website:
Canadian Red Cross sends $5 Million to Japan donated by generous Canadians
 
OTTAWA March 19- 2011 - The Canadian Red Cross is transferring $5 million in cash to the Japanese Red Cross to support relief efforts following the March 11 earthquake and tsunami. The money will be used to support emergency health and the distribution of relief items to people impacted by this disaster.
 
"The compassion the Canadian people have demonstrated over the past week through their generous support to the Canadian Red Cross is incredibly uplifting at a time when we are dealing with such an immense humanitarian tragedy,” stated Satoshi Sugai, Director International Relief Division, Japanese Red Cross Society. “This financial support is very much needed and continues to be welcomed to help the hundreds of thousands of lives that will forever be changed by this disaster."

The Japanese Red Cross has an official role as part of the National Disaster Response Plan in Japan. Their role focuses on supporting emergency medical care, hospital care, psychological support, and distribution of relief supplies such as blankets, food and basic supplies.
 
The Canadian Red Cross has also been part of a high level support team that recently deployed a disaster response specialist to Japan. The team is assisting the Japanese Red Cross in addressing current critical gaps and in creating a longer term recovery plans.
 
The Canadian Red Cross will send additional financial support as the needs of people affected by this disaster unfold. Canadians can continue to support Red Cross relief efforts by making a financial donation to the Canadian Red Cross Japan Earthquake/Asia-Pacific Tsunami fund. Donations can be made online at www.redcross.ca/helpnow, at your local branch office or by calling toll free 1-800-418-1111.

FHCI Program HighLights...
Submitted Submitted by Aneta Costin on Thu, 02/17/2011 - 08:40

To families of students at FHCI--Program Highlights...

There is always a lot happening at FHCI, but families don't always get the details from their children. I am sending out this email, the first in a series, to give you details about some initiatives, plans, and events coming up this semester. I will provide specific information about dates and times in future emails. The information in this email comes from the program areas shown.

1. School-wide
• If you heard we had many supply teachers at school today, you received the right report. One of our objectives at FHCI is to reduce the achievement gaps among groups of students. One of those gaps exists between the overall achievement in the school and the achievement of students defined as English Language Learners, formerly called ESL students.

We planned a half day workshop for all teachers, split morning and afternoon, focusing on 'high yield' teaching strategies to meet the needs of our newcomer students. The original day we planned for the workshop was February 2, a PA Day, but we were snowed out. Today was the day we chose to reschedule the workshop, and so the participating teachers were replaced by supply teachers.

I was with the teachers in the afternoon session and was inspired by the learning that occurred.

• We've had a great response to our new kick-boxing club for Grade 9 and 10 girls.

• Students are currently working on the next issue of 'The Falcon,' the FHCI newspaper.

• 'Club Fair' for Semester 2 will be held in the Massey Foyer on Friday, February 25th. This is designed to help new students get to know what clubs operate at FHCI.
****

2. Guidance:
• Our counsellors are busy with the course selection process and have finished holding assemblies for all 2011-2012 returning students. Course selection sheets are due to the guidance office on February 22.

• The Empowered Student Partnerships club is preparing two workshops for the spring, targeting harassment and bullying issues.
****

3. Physical and Health Education
• We will again be offering the High Ropes Climbing Program to all of our Grade 9 and 10 students. 

• "Super-Duper Sports Extravaganza," with a wide range of off-site athletic activities, will be running again in May.

• We are also looking to introduce a new athletic training "club", hopefully between March and May, run by a pro instructor.  Our goal is to train our spring sport athletes in the two months prior to the start of their seasons.  The club would also be open to any students of the school. When we iron out all the details, we’ll pass them along to students and their families.
****

4. Library
• We've begun the White Pine Reading Program, where students may choose to read up to 10 young adult novels selected by the Ontario Library Association.  Thus far, we have 18 participants, with a goal of 40 overall.  Teachers at FHCI are also participating by being "experts" on each novel.  This facilitates student reading and thoughtful discussion with adults in the school, building a stronger reading community at FHCI.

• Replacement computers have been purchased for the Library computer lab.  This improvement in FHCI technology will enable students to more effectively tackle their academic work and research.

• A wireless Internet hotspot has been purchased for the Library.  This enables students to bring their laptops to the Library in order to get research and school work done.  Thus far, many students have taken advantage of this convenience!

• The Library is getting a mini-facelift!  New shelving, comfy chairs and tables, hundreds of new books, improved use of space, and loads of green leafy plants will enhance student enjoyment of this hub of the school.

• The Library volunteer program continues, with dozens of students earning their community volunteer hours.  This program includes junior students who seek a way to integrate into the extra-curricular life of FHCI, and senior students who give up their spare period to help Librarians throughout the day.
****

5. Science
• Many teachers are experimenting with emailing lesson plans directly to students so that they will be prepared for the lesson coming up the next day. This preview of the lesson offers a unique way to improve comprehension and achievement.

• Ms. Monaghan has a field trip planned to the Science Centre in May for Grade 11 Biology students. 

• Grade 12 Biology classes are working on an Enzyme activity lab and Grade 9 students are studying factors that affect plant growth. 

• The Science Club, sponsored by Ms. Wright, will be up and running this semester.
****

6. English
• Grade 9 English students in Semester 1 had a wonderful field trip to the Classical Theatre Project to see the production of Twelfth Night. Students gained a true appreciation for both live theatre and what the director had done with the Shakespearean play! We are planning the same excursion for Semester 2 Grade 9s in May.

• The Media Studies classes enjoyed viewing the Oscar nominated film, "The Social Network" and making relevant connections to elements in their media course.

• Mr. Lee’s Grade 12 classes enjoyed a live performance of Hamlet at the Classical Theatre Project. He plans to provide this semester’s Grade 12s the same opportunity.

• TCTE Short Story Competition: Ms. Leigh will be both judging the entries and attending the Awards Ceremony for the Toronto Council of Teachers of English Short Story Competition in May 2011.  One of our FHCI students is a contender!

• Mr. Warford is directing Forest Hill’s spring production of Jitters this semester! The production will take place on May 5 and 6, 2011.

• Wikis!  Ms. Moroz has been a leader in the department and the school as a whole helping teachers develop their own Wiki for their classes!

• Mr. Lee’s Grade 12 English classes have the incredible opportunity to hear from Mr. Philip Gai, a former “lost boy” of Sudan.  This enriches their study of the novel "What is the What."

More information will follow from other program areas at FHCI.

Extra help for students at FHCI
Submitted Submitted by Aneta Costin on Thu, 02/17/2011 - 08:36

To families of students at FHCI...
 
Our teachers at FHCI provide regular extra help to students at school in the morning, lunchtime and after school. They are a student's #1 source for help.
 
I want to let you know about an additional terrific resource for Ontario students. The Independent Learning Centre, operated for the Ministry of Education by TVOntario (TVO), provides free online tutoring help in the evening. You can access the site at http://www.ilc.org/aat/chat.php
 
Here is what I copied from their introduction page:
 
Chat - Online Tutoring
Polynomials a pain? Chemistry confusing? Homework headache?
 
Welcome to the "Ask a Teacher" chat rooms, where you can chat with an online tutor and get live homework help in math, science, or English! Our tutors are experienced, Ontario-certified teachers who are ready, willing and able to help.
 
Free to Ontario students.
 
Chat Schedule
The chat rooms are open Sunday to Thursday, 5:30 p.m. EST to 9:30 p.m. EST, except during holidays.
 
This can be a terrific resource to students who run into a problem while working on English, math or science in the evening.
 
Full details are laid out at the program site, http://www.ilc.org/aat/chat.php
 
Perhaps you could persuade your child to check out the site this evening.
