School Photos Online Previews

Mountain West Studios is providing online viewing of school photos this year.  Families will have the ability to order photo packages and products online as well.  Instructions for previewing and ordering school photos are provided below by clicking on the link.

ID cards have been distributed to students.  The ID card has the 10 character sign in code on the front of the card.

Orders received by Mountain West after the photo order deadline on November 12 will require special processing and are therefore subject to a $10 handling fee.  These orders will need to be processed separately from the bulk school order and will be mailed directly to the customer’s home address.

Photo retakes are scheduled for the morning of November 14.  If your student was absent for the original photo date, or if you have chosen not to order from the first previews, please have your student obtain a Photo Order Envelope from the school office.  Students are to present the photographer the Order Envelope with the prepayment enclosed prior to having their picture taken.

Students who did not have their photo taken on October 3 or do not wish to purchase school photos are asked to have their photo taken on November 14 for the yearbook and a student ID card.

Passport to Education Program

A Passport to Education is a small booklet that contains stamps awarded to students for achievement in academic and non-academic areas. Students can use their passport award towards the cost of their post-secondary education or job-training program.

The Passport to Education Program will be phased out over the next three years beginning in September 2013 for grade 10 stamps allocation, followed by grade 11 stamps allocation in September 2014 and grade 12 stamps allocation in September 2015.  

As two-thirds of the weighting must be on the academic component using a student’s course grades for the best five provincially authorized courses and/or Board Authority authorized (BAA) courses that result in a percent or letter grade, JL Crowe awaits confirmation of student final marks that may include students who write or re-write exams in August of their graduation year. We endeavour to have grade 12 passport to education booklets / stamps available for students by mid-October.

Passport to Education stamps expire five years from September 30th of a student’s expected graduating year.

Edmodo

We are transitioning the school from several different online communication tools to Edmodo. Your child has a single unique code that allows you to see and receive notifications from their teachers (if they are currently using Edmodo). Please take a minute to look at your child's Edmodo page (have them show you) and then set up your own account in Edmodo.

How to retrieve parent codes:

The code for parent accounts can be retrieved from your child’s Edmodo account.  The code will be located on the right panel, below the notifications section.  Link: Edmodo How to for Parents
