Dear Grade 7 Parents: We have had a large number of families request that their children be excused from writing this year's FSA provincial assessments. The purpose of the FSA is to provide a "snapshot" of how well students are doing in the key foundational areas. The results of these assessments are shared with parents and the school. As a school, we use these results to identify any trends in NSMS student performance. This helps us with school planning and goal setting.
Attached is information provided by the Ministry of Education. Please take a quick look at the information and call me at school if you have any questions, concerns or you would like to change your mind about your child participation.
