Program of Studies Grade 9
All current grade 9, 10, and 11 Riffel students will register for 2015-2016 classes utilizing Homelogic. Please click here for the course selection instructions.
Grade 8 students planning on attending Riffel in 2015-2016 will need to complete a registration booklet (available at our main office) and return it to our main office at their earliest convenience (hopefully by the end of March, 2015). Our associate school grade 8 students will have an opportunity to be “Royals for a Day” on Friday, February 13 when they will spend the day at Riffel, involved in a number of different activities and classroom experiences. All grade 8 students and parents/guardians are encouraged to attend our New Student Information Night that will take place on Thursday, February 26 beginning at 7:00 p.m. in the Riffel theatre. We look forward to meeting all of our future Royals!
The Regina Catholic School Board has set the calendar for the upcoming 2015-2016 school year.
A Pdf copiy of the school year calendar is also available to download.
For those thinking of pursuing on-line learning opportunities for the 2014-2015 school year, the RCSD webpage Learning Online gives the current information. The document also provides information on the skills required by online learners and registration information.
We will send email messages to our families (utilizing parent email addresses) throughout the year that will provide important information in regards to school activities, key dates, and programs of interest. Currently, Sasktel has made changes to their email filtering to better serve their customers. Unfortunately, these changes now have Sasktel email accounts flagging all school email messages as spam, and in most cases these email messages are then quarentined before reaching the user's email client (i.e. Outlook). It is possible to view quarentined messages and to adjust spam preferences so that you can receive future school email (with this process you will need to add *@rcsd.ca to your Whitelist section).
Two new course offerings for 2015-2016
PERSONAL FINANCE 30 – one credit Prerequisite: none
The aim of Personal Finance 30 is to provide students with basic skills of financial literacy, to develop an awareness and understanding of personal finance and personal economic decision making, and to respond to business decisions as informed consumers. Some areas that will be covered are economics of personal finance, decision making and money basics, banking services, income and taxation, budgeting, savings and investing, credit and credit cards, consumer protection and renting, leasing and buying. See attached video regarding the benefits of this class created by Saskatchewan Business Teachers’ Association - https://vimeo.com/88067215.
EMERGENCY SERVICES RESPONSE 20/30L – two credits Prerequisite: none
The primary goal of the Emergency Responders course is to expose students to the emergency services offered here in Canada. Students will study the latest theory and participate in multiple hands on experiences in firefighting, police sciences, paramedicine, search and rescue and communications. Students will also be given the opportunity to network with experts in their respected fields through guest speakers and multiple field trips in and around Regina. Upon successful completion of this course, students will be eligible to receive a number of tickets (WHMIS, First Aid - Health Care Provider, Firefighting and Incident Command 100) which will greatly advance their resume when applying for future careers. This is an excellent course to take if you are interested in Emergency Services or Health Sciences.
Beginning in September 2014, Regina Catholic Schools has provided each staff member and each student with a Microsoft Office 365 account. This "cloud-based" environment will allow all students to access their school documents anywhere, anytime, and from any device. Office 365 also provides all students with automatic access to important Microsoft Office programs such as Word, Powerpoint, Excel, Lync, and Outlook (email and calendar options). The web-based site can be accessed by connecting to https://login.microsoftonline.com. Each student then utilizes his/her RCS email account (firstname.lastname@example.org) and his/her established school password.
All Riffel students may now access EasyBib - a fantastic online service to assist you in organizing your notes, documenting your sources, and making your research more efficient and effective. EasyBib can be used for papers, reports, or any project that requires organizing and citing information. Once on the EasyBib site, please utilize your traditional school username and your original student # password. Our Resource Centre website (see link at top of homepage) provides more information and details.
Student Home Logic is available for Riffel Students: Access to HomeLogic is generated by LDAP which means students access HomeLogic with their Regina Catholic Schools user name and password. All students should be accessing this important program on a regular basis.
The Graduation/Prom Parent Information Meeting took place on Tuesday, November 18, 2014 beginning at 7 pm in the Riffel theatre. Please take time to read completely our Graduation and Prom Information Booklet.
Homelogic is a communication and organizational tool for parents/guardians and students . This online program allows 24/7 access 365 days of the year to a specific student's (based on user ID information) timetable, attendance profile, school fees, graduation requirements, grade history, assignments (with assigned and due dates) and gradebook (current mark) information.
