The Cree School Board has launched the Mozaïk Portal for Parents online since December 2021. The Portal is a website that functions as a communication tool for parents, allowing parents to track their child’s academic progress while in school and giving them access to their child’s school files, including attendance, report cards, and many other great features!
Using a computer to communicate, research, and collaborate is an important life skill for students. The Cree School Board is currently providing students with Office 365 accounts, online learning materials, and other online learning supports, so they can build these skills for the future. These resources will also make sure we are prepared in the case of another COVID-19 closure.
Here are some resources to help you get started with Office 365, Teams, and other technologies.
Yesterday in Eeyou Istchee, our children have returned to school in an online capacity. The fifth wave of COVID-19, fueled by the highly contagious Omicron virus, has again forced us to delay in-class learning. We acknowledge that although this is not an ideal situation for students, the continued vigilance shown by everyone is greatly appreciated. As well as elementary and secondary students, we would like to thank those enrolled in post-secondary studies for resuming their winter term semester again in an online capacity. We would also like to wish our best to the Adult-Ed, Vocational and Bachelor’s in Education students who will also be continuing sessions this month.
Alone it is difficult; Together it is possible
With Teamwork, Respect and Integrity, success is inevitable.
To create a positive learning environment that empowers life-long learners to become community leaders of tomorrow
Learning is enhanced when school, family, and community establish relationships and support of mutual goals so that students can take ownership of their learning. Successful schools build strong, collaborative school partnerships which nurture family and community involvement.
The name Nemaska means "Place to fish." With a population of almost 1,000 people, Nemaska is nestled on the shore of Lake Champlain. Like some other Cree communities in the territory, Nemaska was not always located where it is today. In 1970, the people of Old Nemaska relocated to the current site to avoid being flooded by the rerouting of waterways for hydro-electric developments.
The school was named after a well-respected Elder who was an inspiration to all and who lived to be 114. The shape of the school represents a fish; fishing has sustained the people of Nemaska for generations.
The language of instruction is Cree and is taught from pre-K to Secondary V. English is taught from Grade 1 to Secondary V. Every school follows the GVC (Guaranteed and Viable Curriculum).
