In all, the district is home to 20 schools. Kootenay Lake School District also offers the Wildflower School—a program choice with features such as theme-based learning and multi-age classrooms.

  • Our daughter was able to improve her science test scores after only one semester of tutoring with SchoolTutoring. However, while raising test scores is great, the real payoff is in the self-confidence that she gained.

Keeping Informed: Recent Nelson Educational News

  • L.V. Rogers Grad Appointed as Prime Minister’s Advisor, Gives Advice to Current Students - A former graduate of L.V. Rogers Secondary School was recently appointed as an environmental advisor to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and, at age 30, is one of the youngest members of his staff. Zoë Caron described herself as a social activist in high school—she was once part of an anti-bullying initiative in which she and her peers led workshops for students from the elementary to the high school level—and recalled a time in first grade when she recycled all of her classmates’ cardboard lunch plates.
  • Kootenay Lake Students Successful at Regional Science Fair - A ninth grader at L.V. Rogers Secondary School qualified to attend the Canada-wide Science Fair for his active solar tracker that used a satellite dish covered with mirrors, which earned him a $75 award and gold in the Intermediate Innovation Division at the regional science fair. In addition, two students from Trafalgar Middle School advanced to the nationwide fair, as their projects earned gold and silver medals, respectively, in the Junior Experiment Division.
  • Kootenay Lake Students Not Afraid to Share Their Views - Kootenay Lake students haven't been shy about standing up for what they believe in and making change, as they have embraced their roles as global citizens and shown that they are socially progressive. During the 2015-16 school year, students have demonstrated a 24-hour environmental sit-in, lobbied for gender-neutral signage for a single-use restroom, encouraged healthier choices by replacing “hotdog day” with a more nutritious alternative, and created a collaborative mural.

Chalk Talk: The Short ‘E’ Sound

The short ‘E’ sound is one of the vowel sounds students are introduced to at the primary grade levels. Words such as web, bet, and test contain this sound. Words that follow a CVC (consonant-vowel-consonant) pattern, such as web and bet, usually contain short vowels. The word test follows a CVCC (consonant-vowel-consonant-consonant) pattern; these types of words usually have a short ‘E’ sound as well. Words that end in double L’s, such as tell and smell, almost always have a short ‘E’ sound. Some words have irregular spellings, but they make the short ‘E’ sound; example include friend, said, and leopard. The digraph “ea” is an interesting case because it sometimes makes a short ‘E’ sound and sometimes makes a long ‘E’ sound. Words such as head, breath, dreamt, and realm contain a short ‘E’ sound.
