Celebrating SQMS

Well....we didn't get to do our traditional end of year awards ceremony but the staff thought we should still celebrate the success of our students so Ms Wilson and Mr Killam organized our "ceremony"! This year our coaches gave out our traditional sports awards and the staff decided on some special awards to give to some of our Grade 8 students.

Ms Laura Wilson stepped up to the plate and developed this awesome video to capture the accomplishments of some but to also celebrate all of our students with as many clips and pictures as the staff could find from our very short year. Thank you Ms Wilson (and everyone else who contributed!)

We are so very proud of each and every SQMS student! Hard work and perseverance definitely pays off!! We are especially proud of the way you all conducted yourselves during the last 4 months! It definitely was not easy but you did it!!!

We want to wish our Grade 8s all the best as they head "up the hill" to LRHS! Go forth, do great things and always be kind!

To our Grade 6s and 7s...we cannot wait to see you next year! We don't know yet what that will look like or when it will happen but we will be so happy when it does!!!

Dear Families:
A link to your child's Term 3 Report Card and/or IPP report has been emailed to the parent/guardian email that we have on file in our system. The password is your child's birth date and you must include the dashes as indicated.
In some instances, you will need to look in your Spam/Junk folders for the link.
As per Term 2, a few families will be receiving their report cards via Canada Post and they were delivered to the post office to be mailed today as well.
Please note that this report card will not have any marks for Term 3 and will only have comments for English Language Arts/French Language Arts, Math, Science and Social Studies.
If you are having issues accessing your child's report card please email sqms@ssrce.ca
Thank you for your continued support!
SQMS Administration


Dear Families,

Hope you are all doing well!  We just wanted to update you with the plan for Term 3 report cards and what you can expect them to look like.

The plan is that the report card will be emailed to you following the same procedure as Term 2 report cards (through email).  If you received the Term 2 report card via mail, that will still continue.  We are planing for Term 3 report cards to be delivered between June 24th and June 26th.  This is to give us some room in case any glitches arise.

We have been given direction from the Department of Education and Early Childhood Development as to what the report cards will look like.  What you can expect to see is a comment only for Math, English Language Arts/French Language Arts, Science and Social Studies.  All other subjects will be left blank.  You will also notice that there will not be a mark given for any subject; the column for where the mark should be will have N/A as will the Learner Profiles.

If you have any questions about the report card, please do not hesitate to contact Mr Stewart (sqmsprincipal@ssrce.ca) or Ms Thorburn (sqmsvp@ssrce.ca).

Thank you again for your continued co-operation and support!

Information Regarding Student Belongings Pick Up

June 2, 2020


Dear Families,

We hope you are all doing well and are keeping healthy and safe!  As we approach the final day of virtual learning we first want to thank you for your hard work with our students in whatever form you chose as a family.  We know that these have been challenging times but the entire staff at SQMS wanted to let you know that we see you and appreciate you!

Last week, SQMS staff was in the building emptying lockers and classrooms in an effort to gather students’ belongings.  All things were collected, put in a clear bag and tagged with the student’s name.  All of the bags were brought to the cafeteria and placed on tables by homeroom.

On June 8th and 9th, we are asking the student OR one member of his/her family pick up the belongings.  The schedule for who will come when is outlined below.  If one person would like to pick up the belongings for multiple students, that is welcomed and encouraged.
