Welcome to Bruce Middle School Online!

Bruce Middle School is a Middle Years (Grades 6 -8)  school in Winnipeg, Manitoba.  View a map showing our location. Use the School Locator to find your catchment area.


Mission Statement

To provide a positive and safe learning environment that encourages continuous growth.


Tradition of Excellence

Bruce students have helped maintain the "Tradition of Excellence" whether it be in academics, athletics, special achievements, citizenship or one of the many co-curricular and enrichment activities.  The success we celebrate is the result of the teamwork and support of the staff, parents and community, and for this we thank you all!
New St. James-Assiniboia websites are coming soon!



Visit our School Blog

In an effort to improve communication between the school and home we have adopted two new tools.  Instead of sending home a monthly newsletter, we will be posting all news items to a newsblog.  Please click here to see what has been going on at Bruce! Also, students and staff at Bruce are using Edmodo to keep track of their assignments, communicate with teachers and hand-in assignments.  Each student account also comes with an attached parent account.  To access the parent account, ask your son or daughter to login to Edmodo and you will see your parent code located in the sidebar.

Opening Day Triad Conferences
Student - Parent - Teacher
September 6 & 7



Beginning Wednesday, June 21st at 8:30 AM to Tuesday, September 5th 4:00 PM, an interview can be booked on line using the Bruce Middle School Conference Manager. This application allows you, as a parent, to use the Internet to check our teachers’ conference schedules and book an appointment quickly and easily.  Please book an appointment with your child’s B.L.A.S.T. teacher only.

The first time you use the Bruce Middle School Conference Manager you will be required to register and create a parent account, which only takes a minute or two. You can continue to use this same account for the duration of the time you have children in this school, so please record your password where you can reference it later.  Please note that although parents can register at any time, the booking of conferences can only begin at or after 8:30 a.m. on Wednesday, June 21st, 2017.  Interview Schedule and Procedures for September 6th & 7th

The interviews will take place on the following dates and times:

September 6th, 2017                             September 7th, 2017
• 12:00 to 6:00 p.m.                          • 8:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.      
Steps to registering and booking conferences:

1.Click on the following link http://bruce.sjsd.net  to connect with the  Triad Conference Link.   
2.Register for a parent account.  To register, click the REGISTER NOW button and complete the registration page.  Once registered you will be able to log in to the Conference Manager right away.  An email will also be sent to the address you specified.  This email restates your user name and password and is a good email to retain, as you will use the same email and password when booking future rounds of Parent-Teacher Conferences.  If you forget your password you can reset it using the FORGOT PASSWORD link under the login button. Once registered you can log in to the Conference Manager any time
3.Click the BOOK NOW button.  Select conference date in the date drop-down that appears and then select the B.L.A.S.T. teacher you wish to meet with and click the NEXT button.
4.Click on an available time slot for each teacher you selected and complete the booking form that appears. You should see the booking appear in the summary list on the right hand side of the screen.  A confirmation email is sent for each booking you make or subsequently cancel. You will also receive a reminder and conference itinerary by email.
5.Confirm your appointment has been booked by looking at the “CURRENTLY BOOKED CONFERENCES” box on the right of the screen or click on the MY CONFERENCES tab.  Only appointments that appear in the CURRENTLY BOOKED CONFERENCES box or on the MY CONFERENCES page are confirmed bookings.
6.When finished booking, click the log off button located at the top right of the browser window.  You will have the opportunity to provide feedback regarding the use of the Conference Manager to the school administration through a user survey before completely exiting. We appreciate you completing the survey as this helps guide our decision-making regarding how conferences are booked in the future.
We greatly appreciate parents booking their own appointments, but know this is not always possible.  If you are unable to book your own appointment due to limited computer access or for any other reason, please phone the school at 888-1990 during regular office hours.  Mrs. Lelieveld would be happy to assist you either by phone or by email at llelieveld@sjsd.net.
                                
Objectives for the conferences will be:  
  • To provide an opportunity for students and their parents to meet the B.L.A.S.T. teacher (homeroom teacher) prior to school opening to share needs of the student.
(*B.L.A.S.T. stands for “Bruce Links All Students Together”)
  • To determine the best form of communication between home and school
  • To enable the student to set goals for the term with parent and teacher support and encouragement
  • To enable the student to:
  • bring supplies to school
  • receive his/her locker & lock
  • verify the accuracy of registration form (from February)
  • pay student fees
  • tour the school

We are looking forward to this opportunity to meet with you prior to the start of the 2017-18 school year.
