Principal's Message

Principal Message

Dear Dr. Gordon Townsend Families, 
 
The month of December is upon us.  We are well into the school year and we are so proud of our students’ growth in the first four months of the school year.   
 
In addition, our staff have engaged in significant learning through professional development that incorporates Indigenous ways of knowing and the holistic life-long learning framework. Working with Elders and Knowledge Keepers, staff at DGTS are enhancing their understandings of the ways in which Indigenous-Ways of Knowing can enhance student’s ability to make literacy and numeracy connections with the world around them and enhance student’s self-regulation skills.   
 
Both staff and students in all of our programs have started to learn from the land.  Classrooms set a common inquiry goal: How can connecting with Indigenous ways of Knowing help us inspire, heal, relate and learn?  Some students have engaged with Elders in online teachings.  Others students have gone outside to engage in sit spots, walk alongs and sharing circles.  We are capturing student’s learning from the land in a document panel located in the hallway at DGTS.  You can also follow the learning journey on Twitter @DGTS_Tigers. 
 
Just a reminder that winter break begins on December 18 – January 5.  The last day of classes is Friday, December 17th and we return to school on Thursday, January 6th, 2022. 
 
On behalf of all of the staff at DGTS, we wish you all a safe and joyful winter break. 
 
Sincerely, 
 
Jennifer Edmondson-Neily 
Principal ​
