coming school year that will provide you with a high level of success and sati

In our school, English

“honours
” courses will
lead to 3

.
If you are a
well
-
motivated
, academically oriented student, this program is for you!

T
he Advanced Placement (AP) Program is a series of courses designed for high school students who wish
to
extend their skills and knowledge beyond the high school curric
ulum. The program is recognized
internationally; it is presently offered in sixty
-
five countries in addition to Canada.

S
TUDENT EVALUATION IS

BASED ON THE
A
LBERTA
C
URRICULUM CONTENT
,


THE SA
ME AS IN THE REGULAR

CLASSES
.

Success in Advanced Placement courses accomplishes several things:

1.

It prepares students for the demands of post
-
secondary education and provides them with vital skills
necessary for success after high school.

2.

It gives prospect
ive colleges and universities a measure of students’ abilities compared to students globally.

3.

It grants credit or “second
-
year status” to students enrolling at some post
-
secondary institutions.


The Grade 12 AP courses are at the university level. Upon com
pletion, students write the regular examination
plus an AP examination in each subject area.


AP courses will only be offered if sufficient numbers are registered.


INREACH

(

Inreach is an available alternative and educational support for students who:





Require one additional/different course than their regular timetable can allow



Are unable to attend all classes regularly due to illness, sports and work commitments or other
personal
reasons



Require a less structured environment to achieve academic success in a single course



Need a course to meet high school graduation requirements







PLEASE NOTE: Inreach is
only accessible by administrative appointment

for students in the


above mentioned circumstances.

RGANIZATION


For the
2013/14

year, the grade 10 program will
continue to provide the basic information and
communication technology skills, study skills,
planning skills

and

personal and relationship skills
necessary for successful graduation and transition to
adult life.



All
students in grade 10

will be required to take
CALM and
Phys
ical Education
. Upon successful
completion, students may
receive up to
10

credits in
the above
2

areas.

To accommodate student choice in complementary
areas, a number of courses such as Art, Dram
a,
Foods, etc. are offered for 5 credits. This will allow
students to investigate more areas at the grade 10
level before moving to more advanced studies in
grade 11 and 12.


The major focus of the Grade 10 program is to
provide a smooth transition to hig
h school and to
support students in completing a successful grade
10 year
. A
combination of all year
and semester
courses
,

compose the program.

The Panther Auxiliary Association is a voluntary group of interested parents, staff and students who work
together with the school to help finance the extra

curricular activities at Spruce
Grove Composite High
School
.

The Auxiliary’s main income results from parents and students
(must be 18 yrs.)
working bingos
held at the Spruce Grove Bingo Hall throughout the school year. We are also approved to work the

St.
Albert Casino once every 18 m
o
nths. When you have a student involved in an extra
-
curricular activity at
S
GCHS
, choosing one of the following options IS COMPULSORY:



work
one or two bingos depending on the activity

they participate in (must be 18 or over);
OR



provide $200

cheques



numb
er determined by

activity

-

to the Panther Auxiliary Association;
OR



participate as a parent representative at

specified

Panther Auxiliary Association meetings held every
month.

Funds
raised through the BINGOS
are used to purchase uniforms, pay tournament
entry fees, pay travel
and accommodation costs, purchase first aid kits and practice balls for teams. The Panther Auxiliary
Association prides itself in the fact that students at

SGCHS are NOT required to pay

fee
s

to participate in
extra
-
curricular activi
ties

if their families commit to the above involvement opportunities
.

This enables all
students to participate.

ATHEMATICS


Alberta has recently undergone a change in the mathematics curriculum. Students should be aware of the
following as they
enter
one of the math programs at Spr
uce Grove Composite High School:




All math courses are 5 credits. Students require a grade 11 level math course to graduate from high school.



The Math 20
-
2 and Math 30
-
2 courses are more algebraically rigorous than the previous Applied Math
courses, thus allowing more transferability bet
ween sequences.



Diploma exams will be written in Math 30
-
1 and Math

30
-
2. A school generated final exam will be written
in Math 30
-
3
.



Math 30
-
2
is accepted as a prerequisite for a variety of programs offered at universities, colleges and
technical institu
tions.

Math 30
-
3
is

accepted as a prerequisite for many of the trade programs offered by
technical institutions
. For the most recent information regarding mathematics requirements at post
-
secondary institutions and programs in Alberta refer to the Albert
a Learning Information Service (ALIS)
website
.

http://alis.alberta.ca/ec/ep/aas/ta/mathreq.html




Parents and students can access further course information on the Alberta Education website a
t
http://education.alberta.ca/teachers/program/math/parents.aspx
.



Math 31 is a 5 credit course. This course includes pre
-
calculus, limits, differential and integral calculus
including trigonometric functions. It is a required pre
-
requisite course for students entering physics,
engineering, and
honours
mathematics, and i
s highly recommended as a pre
-
requisite for students entering
Science and Commerce at the university level
. It is strongly recommended that Math 30
-
1 be taken
prior

to
Math 31
.



For courses requiring a graphing calculator, the T1
-
84 will be the calculator
used by the teachers in the
classroom. A list of other allowable calculators is posted on the Alberta Education website, (under the link
called

O
PPORTUNITIES UNDER
RAP

Apprenticeship is a combination of

on
-
the
-
job and technical training, which
leads to certification as a qualified
journeyman. For example, several years'
work accompanied by periods of
training at institutions such as NAIT can
qualify you to hold a "ticket" in trades
like the following: Bea
utician, Cook,
Millwright, Plumber (there are over 50
different trades!).

Apprenticeship trades provide some of
the best opportunities for employment after completion of the
training.

Normally, you work for about 4 years und
er the guidance of a
qualified journeyman. When you and your employer agree on
a suitable time, you attend the training center for 4 to 12
weeks. You then write the “first year exams”, and if you pass,
you are classified as a “second year apprentice”. T
his rotation
of work and study continues until completion of your third or
fourth year study period (depending on the trade). You are
then certified as a qualified journeyman! The normal length
of an apprenticeship is four years. However, students who
s
uccessfully complete vocational programs and/or enter the
Registered Apprenticeship Program can sometimes shorten
this to only three years after they leave high school.


For further information, ask a Work Experience Coordinator
