We strive to provide a safe, welcoming, and caring school for all students. We remain particularly committed to providing a quality education for students with exceptional learning needs. The second round of IPPs will be handed to students on Friday, December 6th for your review and signature. Please return the signed copy to the main office. In May of this year, Science Daily published an article from King's College London about the great Leonardo da Vinci, suggesting that if he were alive today he would be diagnosed with ADHD. For the full article, please see: https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2019/05/190523202604.htm
If a student is struggling with inattention, we invite them to talk to their teachers about it, or to come seek help with strategies in the Resource Room (203). A pediatrician or family doctor is often a helpful resource as well.Happy Holidays to All!
Inclusive Education is pleased to welcome back all our diverse learners to another great school year at Forest Lawn High School. We are pleased to welcome back Ms. Hare and Mr. Powell in the Paced Learning Program, along with our talented Education Assistants, Ms. Labelle, Ms. Wild, Ms. Horne, and new to FLHS, Ms. Chamberland. We have two new
wonderful team members in the class, our Learning Leader of Mental Health, Ms. Foster, and our Behaviour Support Worker, Ms. Horne. We are excited to have Ms. Nan Balkwill, the Indigenous Education Coordinator working with our department to support Inclusive Education this year, and Ms. Sorenson and Ms. Evans will once again be operating the Learning Support/Resource Room, which has moved to a beautiful large classroom in 203.
Students who are in need of learning accommodations or extra help may access us all day long or at lunchtime.
Knowledge & Employability courses are available for students seeking an alternative to the regular academic classes we offer. K&E provides real-world, workplace-oriented, hands-on learning. Students who complete a full complement of K&E courses can complete high school with a High School Certificate of Achievement in 80 credits, or go on to upgrade to a Diploma track when they are ready. Please call or email Ms. Evans or Mr. Rosvold in Student Services, or see theHigh School Planning Guide for further information. Our K&E student numbers are growing every year.
Individual Program Plans will be sent home on Friday, October 4th through the Titan Time teachers for all students with Exceptional Needs codes. Please sign one copy and return it to the school. Keep one copy at home for your reference. If you wish to make changes to the IPP, you may email the teacher directly or Ms. Evans to discuss your concerns.
Have a fantastic fall and let our team know how we can support the learning of your student!
