Principal's Message

School Development Plan

Dear Families:
We are continuing our school development plan focus on literacy and numeracy and wanted to share some of our work on our goals:
Student achievement in exploring and creating text to extend understanding, and express information and ideas will improve.
Student achievement in using logical processes to analyze problems, reach a conclusion and justify or defend that conclusion will improve.
As part of our early dismissal and professional development work we have continued to collaboratively design rich tasks. As we plan we ask ourselves:
We are informed by the work of Wiggins & McTighe and Clifford & Friesen. These researchers remind us of the importance of planning tasks that require deep understanding – not just the ability to repeat information from memory or from repeated practice. Our task design must provide students with opportunities to demonstrate this wide range of evidence in the day-to-day work at school:

At Edgemont the curriculum we design from the Alberta Education Program of Studies is based on an inquiry stance to learning. We seek out authentic connections to our big idea “Ways of Knowing” and look for interdisciplinary connections between the subject disciplines. We actively seek out real world examples so that students clearly understand that the work they are part of at school IS the work that parents, families and community are engaged in at their jobs and in their daily lives.
We look forward to meeting with families on March 21, 2019 for our Student Learning Conferences. At that time, teachers will share examples of the tasks that students are engaged with, the criteria for success using the CBE 1 to 4 indicator scale and work specific to your child. Please watch for the bookings to open on March 16.
Sincerely,
Sharon, Bill and the Edgemont Staff
