Jan 29
School Council

School Council was well attended on Tuesday night with 16 parents present. Thank you Mr. Kearney for being the teacher representative during the meeting. Mr. Kearney reported how the new Smartboard and document camera is making a difference in his class! He also spoke about how being outside and learning on/from the land once a week has supported the mental health of his students and how it has allowed for hands-on learning. 

The newly established academic committee has a math focus this year. In consultation with the school, the committee has two focus points this year: putting math facts on stairs (there will be an order soon!) and creating movie clips of The academic committee is looking for more parent volunteers who would be willing to speak about their work and how it’s related to mathematics. Please contact Jean if you are interested. We would like to thank Lauren I. who is volunteering her time and talent to edit the videos. They are hoping for many more parent volunteers. Don’t be afraid, there is a script you can follow! 

Next week is the first week of the month, so on February 5, please send the large red & white spelling book to school, so the teachers (and myself) can see the progress your child has made. We need to know if this book is being used as we will only purchase it again if it is. ​

RT @Indigenous_cbe: Today is fall equinox - a time when daylight & nighttime share the sky equally. Today is also Treaty 7 Day - the 144th anniversary of the signing of Treaty 7. The 🌞 & 🌙s equality today teaches us how to honour the treaty...by walking together in equal partnership. #welcomeoko https://t.co/7nUdmGVAVL
