“Fear is the path to the dark side. Fear

leads to anger. Anger leads to hate. Hate

leads to suffering.”                                             Yoda


I would invite all students/parents to read the following "excerpt" from the book Ivory Tower Blues by Cote and Allahar.  It provides some excellent insight into the expectations of a university student and why many who enter do not understand the nuances, and expectations of the world they have entered. →  



Paste the whole piece as given above.


"It is a fool that does not learn from his mistakes, but it is a complete idiot that does not learn from the mistakes of others."

"He who knows, does not speak. He

who speaks, does not know."

Remember that storm days or other days missed for reasons beyond our control, push everything forward 1 day!! A missed assessment event/assignment submission, (i.e., a test or essay, will "occur" or "be submitted", as the case may be) next day back!!  (Ex., if something was scheduled for Monday of a given week and we are unable to attend classes on this particular Monday, the assessment event/submission will occur or be expected the Tuesday of the same week if we return to school on Tuesday of the same week. If the circumstance happens to be a two-day storm or emergency, then Wednesday of that week would be the target date.  Can you detect the pattern?  :}
