2019-2020 Course Schedule

Attached is the course schedule for 2019-2020

TRSS 19-20 Schedule_FINAL

A few notes:

  • This schedule is subject to change depending on actual staffing at the beginning of September. Any changes will be communicated to parents.
  • Math 10 could not be placed in first semester as it interfered with courses that needed to be anchored in place in the schedule. Parents wishing their children to have extra math practice can use kahn academy (a user account is required, but it’s free).
  • Fish farm will not be offered for the 2019-2020 school year so that other senior science courses can be offered. Students in grade 12 who do not yet have a senior science can make an appointment to speak with Mr. Smith or Mrs. Peever to discuss options.
  • Mechanics 12 can include Auto-mechanics 12 and/or Engine and Drive Train 12, as needed.

Pre-requisite Courses and “What Happens if I fail a course?”

  • Science 10 is the only pre-requisite for Chemistry 11, Biology 11 and/or Biology 12. Please contact mdeeley@sd59.bc.ca for more information.
  • Chemistry 11 is a pre-requisite for Chemistry 12. Please contact mdeeley@sd59.bc.ca for more information.
  • Grade 9 math with a final grade of at least 68% is required for admission into Pre-Calculus 10. Please contact lnorbury@sd59.bc.ca for more information.
  • Grade 10 Pre-calculus with a grade of 68% is required for admission into Pre-calculus 11. Please contact lnorbury@sd59.bc.ca for more information.
  • Students who fail any grade 10, 11 or 12 course must repeat the course (or in the cases of electives, an equivalent course) to meet credit requirements for graduation. Students repeating a course will be placed into classrooms as space allows. Precedence will be given to students taking the course for the first time. If there is no available space, you will need to either wait for the next year to re-take the course, or re-take the course through Distance Learning. For questions or concerns, please make an appointment with the school counsellor or academic advisor.

Race Day Postponed to Monday, June 10th 2019

Dear Parents/Guardians,

Due to the snow and rain forecasted for June 6th in the morning, we have made the decision to postpone race day and reschedule for Monday June 10th. This decision was not made lightly, and it came down to a matter of safety for the students who will be driving in the races.

The Race day schedule will remain the same, with the pep rally starting at 9am, and the race to follow at 10:30am. There will still be games for the kids in the field, and the Lion’s club will be here as well serving hotdogs.

On behalf of the Kodiak Racers and the Staff at TRSS, thank you for your support throughout this project, and let’s all think happy thoughts for the sunny weather to come on Monday as forecasted!

Sincerely,
Ryan McGuire
Principal, TRSS

Lindsey Norbury

Bear Sighting Near TRSS – May 24th, 2019

Parents/Guardians

A black bear was sighted in the housing development west of TRSS today at lunch. A call has been placed to the conservation officer and the RCMP. We are asking all students to stay inside the school for their safety, including during the afternoon break, unless they are being picked up or leaving by vehicle. As we get more information, we will post further updates

Update #1 – 1:22pm

The Bear is now located up behind the grassy hill toward the Visitor’s centre. The RCMP have assured us that there is no danger to students, however we are requesting that students do not exit or walk south of the building (by the entrance/exit to the parking lot) just to be safe. North, West, and East of the school are safe. A supervisor will be outside monitoring  during the afternoon break and after school. Students who are walking should walk in groups of three or more and talk loudly.
