Did you know there is an easier way to track your child’s progress in school?

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!

Parent Resource: Setting up Office 365 for Online Learning
January 14, 2022Eeyou Education Blog

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.

Return to School Message
January 13, 2022Eeyou Education Blog

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.

Vision

A school inspired by Cree values dedicated to the academic achievement of our students in a safe, harmonious and welcoming atmosphere based on mutual respect. This must be accomplished in a healthy climate of trust and cooperation to enable them to become positive members of society.


Une école, basée sur les valeurs cries, dédiée à la réussite académique de nos élèves, et ce, dans un environnement sécuritaire, harmonieux et accueillant basé sur le respect mutuel. Cela devra se réaliser dans un climat sain où règnent la confiance et la coopération pour qu’ils deviennent des membres positifs de la société.

Mission

This is your school, others have built it for you. You must make it come alive and give it a face. Its spirit will be built daily by your actions. You are not alone. You are a member of a community. You obey the rules made by the community. You accomplish every day the obligations that link us all. You are solidarity. You are responsible. To break this law is to disavow yourself. To refuse it is to exclude yourself from the community.


Cette école est ton école, d’autres l’ont bâtie pour toi. Tu dois la rendre vivante et lui donner un visage. Son esprit sera construit tous les jours par ton action. Tu la construis pour les autres. Tu n’es pas seul. Tu es membre d’une communauté. Tu obéis aux règles fixées par cette communauté. Tu accomplis chaque jour des obligations qui te lient à nous tous. Tu es solidaire. Tu es responsable. Enfreindre cette loi, c’est te désavouer. La refuser, c’est t’exclure de cette communauté.
