TMC First Week Message

We had a great first week at TMC! Our week started with all staff meeting students on the field on Tuesday, September 5th. We were so happy to see all returning students and to welcome new students to TMC, especially our incoming Grade 5 students. It was also our first day to display our new Titans Tent. This tent, purchased with funds from a grant received by our Running Club from 2015-2016 will be very useful for school events both at the school and in the community. After spending Tuesday morning with their key [...]

Principal's Message

Building Partnerships With Parents/Guardians Through Learning

Every day this week we have had ten classes of students out of the building on trips to enhance learning for our students.  Accompanying the close to 300 students each day have been at least 30 parent volunteers. 
Although this was a particularly busy week for trips at TMC, not a day goes by when we do not count on our parents/guardians to support and enhance student learning at TMC.  It is through this gift of time and talents that we are able to work in partnership with parents/guardians to create dynamic and connected learning experiences for our students.
Educational research indicates that students are more successful in school when parents are involved in their education.  While we know that not all parents/guardians are able to take the day to accompany their child on trips like the ones that happened this week, there are many ways that you can be involved in your child’s learning.  These include:
Having a conversation with your child about what they did at school each day. A conversation starter like the following might help:
What was your favourite part of the day?
What are you studying that really interests you?  Why?
What is one question that you asked at school today?
Tell me one new thing that you learned at school today and I will tell you one thing that I learned at work.
What are you looking forward to doing tomorrow at school?
Set aside time each evening for your child to either complete homework or to reflect on their learning for the day.  If they say that they do not have anything to do, setting aside time to read a novel, magazine or newspaper and talking about what they read is an excellent way to support literacy and numeracy at home.
Log on to D2L with your child.  Look at the announcements together and have a discussion about the learning for the day and any work that needs to be done in the coming days or weeks.  Help your child to plan their homework time around their other commitments. 
Come to learning conferences to see examples of the learning that your child is engaged in at school and speak to your child’s teacher about their successes, their areas for growth and make a plan for how you can work together to support your child towards success.  Our next learning conferences are scheduled for December 7th and 8th.
Connect with your child’s teacher if you have questions about their learning.
Thank you for all that you do and all that you will do to support learning at TMC this year.  We look forward to working in partnership with TMC parents/guardians to make this the best year ever of learning – TOGETHER!​
