ACHIEVEMENTS
I VOTE, YOU VOTE
Our school participated in a practice election for the up coming provincial election to be held October 24 (Saturday). We held our mock election on Tuesday and Wednesday and the results were fascinating, well at least to Mr. Drosdovech and Mr. Freire.
Immaculata lies in the Kelowna-Mission electoral district and so the students had 3 candidates to choose from:
  • Renee Merrifield (Liberal Party)
  • Amanda Poon (Green Party)
  • Krystal Smith (NDP Party)

110 students out of our school population of 210 cast a ballot.
The results were:
66 Merrifield
26 Smith
18 Poon

It will be interesting later Saturday night to see how our students voted compared to the adults. Hopefully as adults we can meet or beat the 52% turn out rate of our students. The challenge is on everyone. Please remember voting is a right under the Charter of Rights and Freedoms (1982) and a responsibility.

TERRY WOULD BE PROUD!
Lots of alternatives to the school wide Terry Fox run this year due to Covid - but the spirit remains the same!

ASPEN
Have you and your parents had a chance to login to Aspen / Parent Portal / My Education?? This is a great resource for you to see how you’re doing in each of your classes. You’ll see your current overall mark as well as a list of all of the marked assignments and tests. You’ll also be able to see if you have any outstanding assignments. It’s a good idea to check into the portal every week or so to ensure you’re up to date in each class. The last day to hand in late assignments for this term is October 29th.
 
Parents should have a received an email early in the school year with login instructions. If you need assistance setting up the account, please contact Mr. Oliveira at boliveira@cisnd.ca.
