X Block is Here!!
We are pleased to announce that a proposal to launch an X Block at our school has been approved. This means that on Fridays in Semester 2, our Friday bell schedule will be amended to include an X Block from 2:10-3:20 every week. Our overall purpose during this time is to support student success through a range of activities, as outlined in the PowerPoint file you can find attached (at the bottom of this page) For students, there are a variety of ways they can utilize X Block in the school; some are mandatory as determined by teachers according to student need, others are optional. If students are not engaging in any of those activities, they are dismissed on Fridays at 2:05 pm and are expected to head home. Please note that bus times will not change.
X-Block Schedule on Friday (May 17) will be:
C: 9:00 - 10:00
D: 10:05 - 11:05
Lunch: 11:05 - 11:55
B: 12:00 - 1:00
A: 1:05 - 2:05
X: 2:10 - 3:20
