Principal's Message

December 2018

​Welcome to December!  We are looking forward to a busy month as we move closer and closer to the Holidays.
A big Thank-You to all the families who came out to the Indigo store at Dalhousie on November 22nd.  We hosted one of the largest crowds we have had so far at this event.  20% of all our families’ purchases in the store came back to Huntington Hills to buy books for our school library.   Mrs. Schoen has the amount noted later in this newsletter.  Thanks to our School Council for providing two $25 dollar Chapters gift cards to the two students who had the most guests show up that evening. 
Please watch out for information coming home regarding our evening concert performance on Thursday, December 13th at 6:30.  We need all students back at the school and in their classrooms by 6:15 in order to begin the concert by 6:30.  All classrooms as well as the choir, handbells and drums will be performing for you.  School Council will be hosting a bake sale which will take place in the Library after the performance.  There will be a notice coming home asking you to reserve no-cost tickets for the performance.  We will be asking for the tickets at the door so that we are in compliance with fire regulations in regards to audience size.
You will be receiving your child’s report card on the 14th of December.  Please take the time to review it with your child and ask them about where they believe their strengths and areas of growth are.  The following chart guides our work in determining your child’s report cards:
 
Report Card Mark
What we look for to determine your child’s mark
4
Does the student:
• make complex and novel connections
between concepts?
• solve problems in multiple ways with insight
into strategies and solutions?
• make information meaningful with analysis
and expression of individual thought?
3
Does the student:
• make logical connections between concepts?
• solve problems through asking specific
questions and proposing solutions?
• analyze information using details and
examples?
2
Does the student:
• make straightforward connections between
concepts?
• solve problems through asking general
questions and proposing a solution?
• use information primarily for recall?
1
Does the student lack understanding of essential
concepts?
Is there enough evidence to accurately identify the
student has insufficient understanding?

As you review the information with your child/ren, we would ask that you take a moment to review the information on the front of the report card that explains what the report card numbers, or indicators actually mean.  For example, receiving a “2” indicates that a student has a basic understanding of the concepts being taught at that grade level.  This is not a negative comment on the student’s learning, but is meant to describe to you how your child is able to work with new material.  At the other end of the scale, a “4” does not indicate that a student is achieving above grade level.  It simply means that he or she is able to use previously learned knowledge and skills to work through new, different, and unfamiliar work successfully.
We sometimes hear about students being rewarded for the number of “high marks” they receive on their report cards.  While setting goals around marks and having a target to aim for are very acceptable ways of supporting your child’s learning, goals that are set too high also discourage and end up not improving student achievement.  Consider where your child was at the beginning of the year and celebrate all progress and accomplishments.  
Have a wonderful holiday season, and we will welcome everyone back January 7, 2019!
 
Mr. Layden​
