Principal's Message

Sept./Oct. 2018

Our Buchanan “Big Rocks” When walking into the school, many of you may have noticed our newest display in the hallway. As a staff community we have created four shadow boxes that collectively represent our “Big Rocks” that guide and drive the teaching and learning we do with our students as well as how we work together. Our “Big Rocks” are those things we value and feel are truly most important when working and supporting all learners. Our “Big Rocks” become our priorities that we want to make room for every day within the teaching and learning that occurs daily. The professional learning book, Creating Cultures of Thinking by Ron Ritchart has supported our learning both guiding our thinking and confirming our beliefs regarding teaching and learning and the environment we create to support a culture of thinking for each of our students. Take some time to look closely at our community “Big Rocks”… Do our “Big Rocks” align with your “Big Rocks?” We have also introduced the Three Pillars of Care; Care for Self, Care for Others, Care for our Place to our school community. Students have been learning and talking about each of the Pillars and brainstorming how they can be practiced daily. The Three Pillars guide our actions and behaviours and help to create a sense of community where “Together we are Better”!
Our recent “Meet the Teacher” conferences are examples of important venues that provide parents with opportunities for input and involvement in their child’s learning. We stress that if you have not met with your child’s teacher that this is one of the most important things you can do to support your child’s success. You can still arrange to meet with the teacher by phoning the school and arranging a face to face meeting if you have not done so already.
As the new Principal to Buchanan School I’d like to say: parents, we sincerely honour the role that you each play in your child’s learning. Not only do the voices of students express how important your role is, but I can state without doubt, that as teachers we could not support your children without you. I look forward to meeting more of you as the year continues. Please feel free to stop by and say “HI” anytime!
On behalf of Buchanan School, thank you for all you do!
Christine Jenik Principal of Buchanan School
