Grade 8 & 9 Soccer Academy at DRSS

DRSS is pleased to announce that we will be offering a Grade 8/9 Soccer Academy as of September 2014.  Our goal is to enhance a player’s confidence, individual playing skills, self-esteem and leadership while giving them opportunities in both academics and athletics beyond the regular classroom.  Our role is to provide additional training for soccer players, male or female, beginners or advanced, competitive or recreational, who wish to improve on their soccer skills.  The Soccer Academy will provide ongoing additional training to the physical and tactical aspects of skills taught within their regular soccer club team training.  Students enrolled in the Academy will have regularly scheduled on-field times within their timetable, September to June, while earning credit for Physical Education.  In addition to on-field sessions, students will be involved in soccer-related classroom instruction.

Project Based Learning Survey

Dear Parents,

As you know your son / daughter was took part in a week long project from January 27th-30th and then spent a day (Monday Feb 3rd) rehearsing, presenting and evaluating their projects. The Grade 8 class studied the Middle Ages and Grade 9 the Industrial Revolution.

This is the second year that we have done this type of project and we made significant changes this year due to student, teacher and parent feedback.  This year we are also looking for your feedback.  Please take a few minutes to fill out the survey.  There are only a few questions.
