After School or Lunch Time Activities This Month
Practices are held three days per week- players will need to contact the coaches for specific times. Students from any grade can come out to practices. Ms. Green from UES & Lucia Lyons from USS are coaching the girls. Mr. Grigg from UES is coaching the boys. The teams just started practicing last week.
Art Club every Wednesday
Ms. McWhinney has had the Art Room open on Wednesdays after school for any students wanting to work on art projects. Students from any grade can participate in this club. You don’t have to be in an art class to participate in this activity.
All students are welcome to be part of our schools Student Union. The students meet once a week to plan events for the student body such as theme days, Halloween costume competitions, Remembrance Day ceremonies, and school dances. Students need to listen to the announcements to hear about meetings times.
My Homework App
This year, some teachers at USS are utilizing a new program call https://myhomeworkapp.com/. This app is accessible for phones, tablets, laptop and desktop computers. Students are able to find due dates for homework, access assignments and review dates for upcoming tests and quizzes. Individuals can log in using Gmail, Facebook or any other email address. Simply search for Ucluelet Secondary and click on the teachers of your child. This site is free to all users.
Just a reminder that all our teachers can be contacted if you want information about your child’s progress by calling the school & leaving a message for them at the main office or by using their e-mail addresses. Their e-mail addresses are on our website at http://ussweb.sd70.bc.ca/ .

They will need to establish a new executive, discuss any projects PAC would like to pursue this year, and create a meeting schedule for the year. All USS parents are encouraged to participate.
Composters for Sale
The Sustainability Studies 12 class made composters last spring using mostly recycled material. We still have two for sale. $75 each. Contact Kevin at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in buying one.
School Photo Update
My apologies for the late notice on Picture Day. We have still not received the envelopes, but I have been informed that in a few weeks we will receive School ID Cards and the proofs for each student who had their picture taken. Parents will also receive information with the proofs on how to order more pictures.
Originally we had scheduled re-take day for Nov 4th. The photography company may need to change that date. We will inform you as soon as they confirm the date.
