Principal's Message

End of Year Message

​June 30, 2020 Message to the Community
 
At the end of each year, it is important to reflect on our work in order to appreciate how far we have come.  This practice also helps us guide our thinking into next school year.  We want to acknowledge that this year, due to Covid-19, has been very challenging to say the least.  We also want to acknowledge that before and during Covid-19, our school consistently worked towards the achievement of our School Development Plan (SDP) goals.  In 2019-20, our School Development Plan goals focused on Literacy, Math and Well-being.  Specifically, we worked towards the following goals:
·       Students will improve their achievement in reading comprehension skills;
·       Students will improve their achievement in mathematical computation and strategies in the area of subtraction, division and shape and space;
·       Students will improve their ability to effectively use self-regulation skills and increase their resiliency in learning.
This year we worked on:
Literacy:
·       high impact reading comprehension strategies (annotate text, make connections, ask questions, translate in their own words, make a prediction, and other strategies)
·       literacy activities targeting inference skills in reading comprehension;
Math:
·       high impact mathematical computation strategies (meaningful mathematical discussions, productive struggle and challenge, active participation in reasoning and sense-making, intentional learning progressions and connections, procedural fluency developed from conceptual understanding)
·       focus on mental math
Well-Being:
·       weekly self-regulation for resilience skills building activities
We are proud of the work that our students, teachers, support and custodian staff, have done in the face of adversity.
 
Parent community and School Council:
While our staff and students worked hard towards the accomplishment of these goals, we want to acknowledge and thank our parent community who has been supporting our work and our students all year.  We want to recognize the work of our School Council and our Fundraising Parent Society.  We are very thankful for the support of our School Council, as they make a significant impact on student life and opportunities for further learning at school.  Our School Council is very welcoming and invites all parents wanting to make a difference in their child’s school life to join our School Council meetings.  More information is available on our website at: http://school.cbe.ab.ca/school/bobedwards/get-involved/school-council/pages/default.aspx
