Class of 2021

Hello, everyone! Welcome to the Parkview Public School's Class of 2021 page. If you're on this page, you are blessed to call one of our amazing intermediate students your own. Don't let the name deceive you. Though much of the information will address our soon-to-be grads, I will also be sharing information that is pertinent for Grade 7 and even Grade 6 students, particularly as we near the end of the school year. I will keep a calendar below to let you know of any dates that will be relevant to you as a family. Please subscribe to this page (scroll to the bottom) to ensure that you receive regular updates.

We feel so blessed to have so many of our students back in the building with us, and though we do have students participating in Full Remote Learning this year they are still welcome to check in for updates, particularly with regards to high school course selection and registration, Grade 8 graduation, summer learning opportunities, and so on.

This is such an incredible time for intermediate students, as they begin to think of the next chapter in their academic journey. This year we know things are going to look very different. Nonetheless, I want you to rest assured that our TVDSB high schools are working hard to determine how to make those important connections with students, families, and staff in order to share all the information needed to support the transition to high school. And the team here at Parkview will always be here to support each of our students and their families throughout this part of their journey, as well.

In the upcoming weeks before the Christmas Break, Grade 7 and 8 students whose parents have not opted out will be given the opportunity to complete the Every Student Belongs survey. A letter regarding the survey was sent home on Friday, November 27th. Those intermediate students participating in the survey will complete it between December 9th and 18th. This is a voluntary survey, the purpose of which is to collect information to better serve all students and families.

It is such a privilege for me to get to work with our students again this year as your Guidance Lead. Please don't hesitate to reach out with questions as they arise. Again, please subscribe to this page and stay tuned for updates. I look forward to working with you.

 

Warm regards,

Mrs. Moore-Nash
Vice-Principal/Guidance Lead

High School Information

 

H.B. Beal Secondary School

The team at H.B. Beal Secondary School would like to introduce a unique opportunity that exists for your students to participate in an enriched visual art experience as they enter grade 9.  The Bealart Grade 9 Enriched Visual Art program offers students a chance to take advantage of the unique facilities found at Bealart that do not exist anywhere else in Canada. They explore techniques and processes using art-making equipment and technology that rivals most post-secondary institutions. The tools available at Bealart allow students to create artworks that are not able to be made anywhere else in the district! Bealart has specialized studio facilities in Ceramics, Printmaking, Animation & Moving Image, Sculpture and 21st Century media, such as 3D scanning and printing, programmatic electronics, and much more!

At Bealart, they believe that skills, technique and style should be in service of well-formed thinking and they challenge students to develop, research and present their own ideas. Their program teaches students to consider the consequences of their creativity—to be responsible to the environment and those around them for the artifacts they create. Bealart Grade 9 Enriched Visual Art is a rigorous program that will challenge students not only in visual communication but oral and written communication as well. The program is well suited to students thinking about entering the creative industries, engineering, science and architecture.

  • Registration requires an online portfolio review which is due on or before January 15th.
