After School OSSLT Preparation Sessions

Dear Parents/ Guardians:

The Ontario Secondary School Literacy Test (OSSLT) measures whether students are meeting the minimum standard for literacy across all subjects up to the end of Grade 9. All students write the OSSLT in Grade 10. Successful completion of the literacy test is one of the requirements to earn an Ontario Secondary School Diploma. All Grade 10 students will write the literacy test on March 27, 2019.

            At Pine Ridge Secondary School, we will be offering an after school OSSLT Preparation program as part of our Student Success Program to support student achievement. This series of 10 sessions provides students with skills and strategies to improve their literacy skills and to increase the likelihood of successful completion of the OSSLT requirement.  There is no cost for this program but students who register are expected to attend all sessions in order to best prepare them for success.

The After School OSSLT Preparation sessions will be held on Tuesdays and Thursdays beginning Thursday February 7th from 2.30 pm until 3:45 pm in Room 2104 at Pine Ridge Secondary School. The program teachers, Ms. Hopper and Ms. Harris, are supportive and approachable. All materials will be provided for students. The program material is manageable and meaningful, and snacks will be provided!

            Please complete the attached form to register for the program and return it to the school by Wednesday February 2, 2019.
