Kindergarten to Grade 7

I am very sorry to announce that our District will no longer be continuing our Kindergarten to Grade 7 program. We are no longer taking registrations for K to 7.
     To all my students and families, I have so enjoyed working with you all. I was very happy that this year's new elementary program turned out to be so much fun and so well liked. I know you will all continue to do great things!

I have been teaching at North Coast Distance Education School for many years.  I really enjoy working with my students and their families. With this job, I find I am continually learning new things.
     Elementary students are full time students and single courses are not offered for K to 7. Our Elementary Program gives parents the choice of a structured program or a more open, Portfolio based program. In our new Elementary Program, we have moved away from paper Modules and can provide a fully online program. Our new program includes more choices and uses student projects to meet many learning outcomes. Modules are still available for families that want a more structured program. Parents and students work with me to develop individualized learning plans, that also meet the Ministry of Education's learning outcomes.
    We offer a Full Day Kindergarten Program. Please contact me to discuss our Kindergarten Program. 
    Registration for Elementary is a little different than for our Secondary Students. You can use the online application, but you need to contact me to set up an individualized learning plan for your child. Please contact me if you are interested in enrolling your K to 7 student in our school. I would be happy to work with you to create a program.
