Principal's Message


​Learning and well-being are closely linked. When we talk about well-being we are referring to how children are feeling, their sense of belonging and having a positive self-identity. When a student feels well, they are more engaged in their learning and more able to deal with everyday bumps. At school we continue to focus on improving students' well-being for learning by building students' emotional vocabulary and supporting them to regulate when they are feeling frustrated or upset. Classes also spend time throughout the day on mindfulness.
 Mindfulness is when you are able to notice and pay attention to something. It requires you to slow down, relax and notice how your body is feeling. At school we use a resource called Smiling Minds. It is a resource that supports helps students develop emotion regulation skills and social awareness. There is also a parent portion of this resource we wanted to bring your attention to. The Smiling Mind At Home resource can be accessed online or through their app. Through these online portals you can access meditations and activities you can use at home to support mindfulness.
 We know that families are under increased stress during this pandemic and we want you to know we are here to support you. Daily mindfulness is just one way we can actively work towards improved mental health and learning. We are committed to continuing to improve student's well-being for learning and plan to discuss this year's goal with parents at our next school council meeting. We hope you find that Smiling Minds offers one way to connect with what your child is learning at school and helps them feel well.​
