What do eagles do in the winter?


The edcentre.ca office is located at mouth of the Montreal River. In the spring there are usually two eagles that perch on the trees about 50 metres from our building. This scene will likely never happen here due to the high traffic volume nearby. (These eagles are feeding on the coast near Comox, British Columbia. )

This week has been an absolute frenzy here at the school. We have had a flood of new students, phone calls, inquiries, local students dropping in for help, and remote students in the web conference rooms. If it were eagles looking in on the humans here at the school, perhaps this is how it would appear.

There is an assembly today!

Today (Feb. 11th) we are hosting an online assembly at 2:15. Ted is on location at the Northern Industrial Career Centre in La Ronge. You can join us in the assembly by going to http://breeze.edcentre.ca/assembly1. See you online!

You can call Tom at NICC. His number is 425-5758.

Great Turnout to GED Testing

GED Testing in La Ronge drew five people yesterday, a record number at a test date here. The test takers will finish this evening but have to wait four weeks for the results. Most of the tests are made up of machine-scored multiple choice questions. But everyone taking the English Writing test in Canada writes a short essay. All the essays are sent to New Brunswick where two people grade them. We wish the test takers success in their efforts!

Hi Everyone,
I am in rainy California, yes that's right it has been raining for two days. I am still enjoying it thoroughly (soaked...haha). So far we have survived the Rocky Mountains, Salt Lake City freeway (150 kilometers of driving at 120 km an hour...in the night...in four lanes with big semis....yikes...it gets the old heart pumping), Disneyland, Disneyland California Adventure, and camping in downtown Los Angeles. I have attached a picture of us in our Los Angeles RV park. We built sandcastles on the beach today outside of San Diego and tomorrow we are headed to Legoland. I have found the WiFi to be painfully slow (slower than dial up at Napatak, now that is slow) so I send my apologies to my students new and old for the delay in marking. I heard it is sunny and melting in the North which is great! Over and out....

Welcome Brent Endicott

Biology and Chemistry courses are now being offered through edcentre.ca. We have a new online storm trooper working night and day, eating sleeping and breathing online learning.

He is a really quick study, so students taking the senior science courses are in for a real treat.

Stay tuned!!!
