Dates to Remember


Principal's Message

November Principal Message

Hello Pineridge Families, 
We have completed another month of school. What a month it has been. Here are a few highlights from November! As always, if you have any questions, comments or feedback please let me know. 
Events and Activities 
SPARK has started (morning movement/exercise for select students needing movement/exercise to start their school day) 
Grade 6 Patrols has started 
Student Council Advisory has started 
Buddy classes are up and running 
EdMatters Diverse Books Grant 
EdMatters has provided $6500 for Pineridge to purchase diverse books. The intent of diverse books is that ALL students see themselves (language, culture, religion, gender, communities, home countries, special events, etc) represented in the school. Current research shows a direct connection between diverse books in classrooms leading to increased well-being, connection, and community. We are happy to announce we spent all $6500 on diverse books, including over 130 titles ranging from picture books to novels. Staff will be engaging in critical literacy professional learning in January as we prepare to create diverse classroom libraries. This is VERY exciting for the Pineridge School Community! 
Student Learning 
Again, so much amazing learning has taken place during October. Students are well into so many amazing learning experiences. As I visit classrooms I am seeing first-hand how students are motivated, engaged, and achieving. Great job students! 
Teacher Learning 
Teachers professional learning focused on task design and assessment. This work will continue throughout the year. Teachers are well into their Professional Learning Community meetings and Collaborative Response Meetings. Both PLCs and CR focus on increasing student achievement and well-being! We have already seen both of these. Great job teachers!
