May 2018 Update

Excerpted from our May Newsletter​.

​Dear Families, May has arrived! We look forward to so many exciting things between now and the end of the year. Please watch the calendar for reminders. 

Math Fair 

We will be hosting a school wide Math Fair on Thursday, May 24 from 5:30-7pm. We have engaged in a great deal of professional learning this year, and have focused on impacting student understanding of mathematics. We are so excited to share our learning with you. More information to come. 

School Staffing 

Schools are in the process, or in our case have completed, their resource allocation for the 2018/19 school year. At this point, our teaching and support staff FTE is exactly what was at the end of September 2017. We are staffed for 18 teachers, 5 Educational Assistants, 4 ELL Assistants, 1 School Assistant, 1 Admin Asst and 3 lunchroom supervisors. We are in the process of organizing classes, and will let you know ASAP what that will be. 

Expected/Unexpected Behavior 

At Connaught School, we have been speaking with students about expected and unexpected behavior. Things like following routines, having a safe body, speaking kindly to adults and peers, sharing, waiting for your turn, walking safely in a line, being safe on the playground equipment are just some examples of expected behavior. Thank you for reinforcing this at home. 

Thank you,
