Oki / Tansi PFS Families
After a wonderful month of September, which focused on school routines, getting to know one another, and celebrating the start of another school year, staff and students are now beginning to dive into their teaching and learning. September was a month of excitement and big events such as the Terry Fox Run and Truth and Reconciliation Week, October has fewer events planned, which provides an opportunity for students to further engage in their work. The school value that we are focusing on this month is Kakyosin. This is a Blackfoot value, it means, “Be aware of your environment; be observant”. By learning to be Kakyosin, our students notice their environment. They notice what is happening on the land, and in their classroom. They notice things that make them feel safe, and they notice things that help them feel ready to learn. They also begin to notice how their actions affect their environment both positively and negatively, and they begin to take responsibility for their actions.
Parents please know we continue to follow all COVID-19 protocols established by the CBE. This includes mask wearing, cohorting classes and staying home if you are sick. For more information regarding COVID-19 for the 2021-22 school year, please see the link below.
