Principal's Message

Learning is the most active and alive in the mess of the process itself.

Dear Parents of Maple Ridge School,
The carpet in my house is old. If you have ever walked into a carpet store, you know it can be a overwhelming. To simply look at a carpet swatch and run your hand over it is not a great indicator of quality and durability. In order to make a good choice, I have had to do some significant learning. I’m learning about polyester vs. nylon. I’m learning words like gauge, pile, loop and cut. This doesn’t even touch the math involved in the process. In the end, my brain will turn off and I will simply enjoy the look and feel of new carpet beneath my feet.
Looking at this example, consider where the learning is happening. Learning is the most active and alive in the mess of the process itself. The end product has value in that it brings joy and satisfaction but the amount of learning involved in a product is minimal. Student-Led Conferences are coming up this week and are a perfect opportunity to dialogue with your child about the process of learning. It is in the process that one’s brain is the most engaged. You will get to see your child’s daily notebooks and journals. You will see how learning can sometimes be messy and take us down interesting paths. As you flip through the pages of your child’s learning, celebrate the progression of learning you see and ask questions about the process.
Allowing your child to lead and be the principle voice in the conference allows them to take ownership for their learning and gives them an opportunity to reflect on their learning. You can ask questions such as; What about your work makes you smile? Can you give me an example of something that took time to figure out? Where in your learning did you need to make a decision? How did you make that decision? What are you still discovering in your learning? What do you want to learn next? Where do you think you need help in your learning?
You may see incredible products of learning when you attend Student-Led Conferences but remember the learning lies within the process it took to get there.
Sincerely, Brad Emery, Principal
