Mom's Pantry Fundraiser

posted Oct 16, 2019, 10:17 AM by Mr. Ingram   [ updated Oct 22, 2019, 10:16 AM ]

Students have started their first fundraiser for the Grade 8 trip!
All students have received a fundrasing booklet and order forms.

Orders are all due on OCTOBER, 29, 2019.

I have a LOT of extra order forms. 
So ask your student to come see me at school and I will give them whatever they need.

With over 200 diverse items, from spices, tea, fruits & veggies, and superfoods to cookie dough, frozen ready to bake treats, and snacks, it’s easy to accommodate everyone’s tastes! All of Mom’s Fundraising Programs are always peanut-aware, meaning they no longer stock any products that contain peanuts as an ingredient. We also offer several 100% peanut free selections.

• Most items earn 40%.
• Larger items earn 20% to 30%
• Average commission is≈ 37%

When filling out forms, make sure that :
A -     The buyer’s and seller’s names are clearly written on order form. These are used primarily to produce labels. Easy to read names make for easy sorting and reporting.
B -     The chosen payment option is correctly noted (cash, cheque or credit card). If credit card is selected, make sure an authorization number has also been recorded.
C -      The math is correct (errors do happen!) and that the money collected or cheque amount agrees with this total.

Buyers using Order Form can choose to pay using three methods :
• Cash
• Cheque (payable to Central Algoma Secondary School)
• Credit Card (MasterCard, VISA, American Express)

Sellers also have the option of placing their orders online at: using the Order Number and Group Passcode printed on the front of your blue order forms.

Simply add items to cart, and checkout.  If you choose this option you will also be required to pay for your purchase at the same time (using either Mastercard, VISA, AmEx, or Discover).  If a buyer does not complete the entire payment process, the order will not be submitted.  You will receive a confirmation e-mail once the order has been finalized.

Thank you for your support!

Grade 7/8 Boys Volleyball

posted Oct 31, 2018, 10:56 AM by Mr. Ingram   [ updated Oct 16, 2019, 9:31 AM ]

I expect that we will be starting up Boys Volleyball the week of Oct. 16.
We will be choosing 10 players for our Grade 7 team and 10 players for our Grade 8 team.

Our first week will be basic skills practice.  Students will get a chance to hone their skills.
I will confirm whether our practices will be during Nutrition Break or after school.  Students will need to have a late bus form filled out if they want to stay after school for practices.

Stay tuned for more information ....

YouTube can be a great source of video clips to help you improve your game. 
Please be aware that these are very skilled players in these videos (except maybe the blooper videos ...). 
You aren't going to be playing at this level ... yet, but one day you might be.  This is your start down that road.
Here is a massive collection of videos for you to watch:

Vex IQ Challenge 2019-2020

posted Sep 24, 2018, 11:57 AM by Mr. Ingram   [ updated Sep 8, 2019, 9:24 AM ]

VEX IQ Challenge Next Level is played on a 4’x8’ rectangular field configured as seen above. Two robots compete in the Teamwork Challenge as an alliance in 60 second long teamwork matches, working collaboratively to score points. Teams also compete in the Robot Skills Challenge where one robot takes the field to score as many points as possible. These matches consist of Driving Skills Matches, which will be entirely driver controlled, and Programming Skills Matches, which will be autonomous with limited human interaction.

Here is a link to the website that explains our challenge for this year. 
It also provides all documentation for the challenge.
