    Principal's Message

    April 2018

    ​“A child who reads will be an adult who​ thinks.”

    April is Literacy Month at Dalhousie School
    At Dalhousie School, great emphasis is placed on literacy skills in both Spanish and English.  Our school development plan focuses on two specific areas of literacy learning – creating original text in writing and improving students’ skills in reading comprehension.  Over the course of the school year, teaching staff have been involved in professional development sessions to increase their understandings of student literacy development from Kindergarten to Grade 5.  These sessions have included collaborating with colleagues to further develop accurate and consistent assessment practices followed by opportunities to explore best practices in literacy teaching and learning.
    In addition to providing students with a solid base in literacy skills, we hope to help students develop a love of books, and of reading, writing, listening and speaking in both languages.  With this goal in mind, we have decided to make April  Literacy Month at Dalhousie School.  Staff have worked hard to create a number of literacy-focused activities to increase student engagement in literacy learning and make reading and writing joyful! 
    Each day during the month of April, announcements will include a joke of the day (many jokes include plays on words) and an interesting and challenging “word of the day”.  A number of days in April will be chosen as “Drop Everything and Read” days and students are encouraged to carry a book with them wherever they travel throughout the school.  We will be having teacher read-aloud swaps, “Poem in your Pocket” day, a school-wide pyjama day with buddy reading activities and a “Dress As Your Favourite Storybook Character” day.  Literacy-related prizes will be given out randomly to students exhibiting literacy-related behaviours over the course of the month.  Teachers are sharing their own literacy activities and favourite books with students to serve as role models for life-long literacy learning.
    One of the culminating activities of Literacy Month is a school-wide used-book drive.  We hope you will consider donating gently-used children’s books to the school so that at the end of the month each Dalhousie School student will be able to take home one book “new to them”.  All additional donated books will go to other schools in need – English books to a fellow CBE school and Spanish books to schools in Costa Rica and Nicaragua.  Used book bins are located in the front entrance of the school for your convenience.
    Thank you for helping us to promote literacy learning and encourage the development of life-long literacy lovers at Dalhousie School!
