UMPS Approach to Learning
  • We believe each student is unique with individual
    needs.
  • We believe that it is important to foster all
    aspects of a students education including the
    building of character and community.
  • We believe that student success is dependent on
    the effort and support of all community partners
    parent, teacher, and student.

Differences in the Intermediate Division
  • Students are exposed to a rotary-style program
  • Students are given lockers to use appropriately
  • Students are required to advocate for themselves
    and begin to acknowledge their own learning style
  • Report Card marks are presented in numbers

5
Differences in the Intermediate Division
  • Students are expected to take responsibility for
    using their agenda effectively
  • Students will need to recognize that they are the
    leaders of the school and need to act accordingly
  • Students will need a quiet place to study and a
    desk or table to do homework
  • At home, students will also need access to a
    computer, the internet and will also need toner
    and paper for printing assignments

Progress Report
  • This document provides parents with information
    regarding their childs general progress in their
    learning skills and work habits. It is not an
    evaluation of their achievement of the
    expectations.
  • Students will receive one of the following in
    each subject area
  • Progressing Very Well
  • Progressing Well
  • Progressing With Difficulty

9
Progressing Very Well
  • The student is currently demonstrating
  • significant learning in relation to the
  • curriculum expectations and is
  • expected to achieve the learning goals
  • of the term.

10
Progressing Well
  • The student is currently demonstrating
  • sufficient learning in relation to the
  • curriculum expectations and is likely to
  • achieve the learning goals of the term.

11
Progressing With Difficulty
  • The student is currently demonstrating
  • some learning in relation to the
  • curriculum expectations and may not
  • achieve the learning goals of the term.
  • The student is being supported in
  • achieving the learning goals.

12
Parent Support at Home
  • Organizational Support
  • Providing a quiet work space
  • Ask to see their agendas to see what they are
    doing
  • Encourage them to read nightly or review notes if
    they have no class work to complete
  • Ask them about tests and quizzes that they have
    written or that are approaching
  • Teach your child effective study techniques
  • Sign all tests and assignments that come home

13
Parent Support at Home
  • Emotional Support
  • Talk with/Listen to your child about their day
  • Intermediate life can be stressful both socially
    and academically
  • Signing your child up for too many
    extra-curricular activities can be overwhelming
    (e.g. piano, violin, Cantonese lessons). Work
    with your child to ensure they have enough time
    for their homework. It is equally as important
    that your child also has some time to relax so
    that they are rested for the next school day.

14
Parent Support at Home
  • Emotional Support
  • Focus on your childs strengths and encourage
    them in a positive way. For example if your
    child does not achieve their best on a math test,
    work with them to create a study schedule and
    help them practise the skills they need to
    improve
  • Work together with your childs classroom teacher
    to positively support your child.
  • Students are encouraged to go to bed at 1000pm
    on school nights, so that they can get a full
    nights rest
  • Please ensure that students are not staying up
    late on their computers past 1000pm

15
Effective Use of Agenda
  • Agendas need to be carried from class to class
    where students record their daily assigned work
  • A check mark system is used to check off
    completed work in the agenda
  • Agendas go home at the end of the day along with
    homework materials and must be returned to school
    the following day
  • Parents need to check their childs agenda daily
    and initial it

16
Homework Expectations
  • Students are expected to complete 10 minutes of
    homework, per grade, per night, on average
  • For example Grade 7 students should be
    completing approx. 70 minutes of homework
    nightly. Grade 8 students should be completing
    approx. 80 minutes of homework nightly.
  • All students are expected to read for at least 30
    minutes a night.
  • All homework materials must be returned the
    following day (textbooks must be returned by
    830am even if the student is absent)
  • Students are responsible for completing missed
    work due to absences using a homework buddy or
    via parent pickup.
