EMS Truth & Reconciliation Commitment to Action 2022-2023

​Dear EMS Community,

To acknowledge and support the implementation of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission Calls to Action, the staff of EMS has created our "EMS Commitment to Action" for the 2022-2023 school year.  All EMS staff members contributed to the creation of this action/document in order to advance truth and reconciliation in our school and in our community. 

At “THE” Ernest Morrow School, we are committed to working with Elders, Knowledge Keepers, families and communities to build the capacity of all who work with students in our building. Through an Indigenous and Western lens, we will come together to visually create a safe and caring space where all students see themselves. Through professional learning, Circle of Self, the Indigenous Education Holistic Lifelong Learning Framework, and connecting with community, we will honour the recommendations of the TRC.

We will do this by representing our learning:
• Visually (every learning space)
• Seasonally (4 Quadrants)
• Holistically (Spirit, Heart, Body, Mind)
• Vocally (Student and Staff)
• Respectfully and Proudly
In making our commitment, Call to Action (7 and 10) offered inspiration.

Date: June 21, 2022


Thank you,

Kevin Godfrey
Proud Principal
"THE" Ernest Morrow​

RT @SOSAlberta: Make no mistake - Kenney is very deliberate with his messaging. @jkenney believes high quality education should be an *option for parents*. We believe high quality public education is the RIGHT OF ALL CHILDREN. Who will defend that right with us? Join Us. #ABEd #ABleg #ABPoli https://t.co/FAomwL1gHn
