We want to welcome all of our students and all of you parents to keep in touch with us throughout the year. If we work together, we can make sure that every student has the tools they need to get through the material we are presenting. Regular home study, coupled with focused attention in class is the bedrock of success!
Please visit this website often as I will try to keep you informed of the activities in the class and also advise you of events and other information.

Second EdTechTeam Kawartha Summit Hosted by Bowmanville High School
On November 17 and 18, over 200 administrators and teachers from all over Ontario will converge at Bowmanville High School to learn from certified teachers, trainers and their peers about the newest ways to engage Kindergarten-Grade 12 students in learning and integrating technology.
The event allows teachers to share meaningful and practical ways to utilize a variety of apps and online tools, including Google for Education.
“We are proud and excited to host an event of this high calibre for a second time,” Kawartha Pine Ridge District School Board Superintendent Gloria Tompkins said. “The feedback from participants in the last Summit was overwhelmingly positive. This is another step in continuing to integrate more technology into our classrooms as a tool to help our students thrive far into the future.”
"We're excited to be working with the KPR Board to host the Kawartha Summit,” EdTechTeam Canada's CEO Michelle Armstrong said. “We have been producing Summits since July 2012, and in 2017 alone, EdTechTeam hosted over 50,000 participants at 540 live events worldwide. Educators all around the world have experienced a ‘mind blowing,’ ‘life changing,’ and ‘downright fun’ event often evaluated as ‘the best professional development of my career’.”
The Summit brings together K-12 teachers and administrators to learn ways to implement everything from individual lessons to school-wide technology programs, as a way to build 21st Century skills in students while they learn the curriculum.
