Character Education | Oct. 2018
We work with all of our students around the character virtues taught and shared at Le Roi Daniels.
As part of our Character Education and looking at our connection to each other, our school, our community, our country and our world, we were able to focus on the impact that one individual can have transforming a world. In each class, there was a discussion recognizing all the amazing character traits that Terry Fox demonstrated in his short life. He was passionate, caring, devoted, determined, persevering, and committed to make a difference. These are all character traits that we can strive for in our everyday lives.
We are beginning our NEW CHARACTER EDUCATION program, please be sure to read the very important attachment regarding this new program and the HOME COMPONENT involved.
My Child's Learning: A Parent's Resource
This resource will provide you with a better understanding of Alberta’s curriculum and how you can help your child. Here, you’ll discover what your child is learning, how they’re assessed and what resources are available to help them be successful from Kindergarten to Grade 12.
Digital Citizenship Plan & Acceptable Use Policy
As part of the TLC program, there is required homework that is assigned each week. Students are expected to have this homework completed and reviewed/marked by a parent and then returned to the school each Thursday for the teacher to review and make notes to ensure students understanding of concepts. As both parents and students, you have agreed to this expectation when you chose to attend TLC and signed the “blue” document in September outlining these expectations.
I am fully aware of the crazy busy schedules we all have after school with hockey, music, swimming, dance, Kumon, etc, however the homework that is assigned from school reviews what is done in class to ensure the concepts are clearly understood and practiced for future skills to build on. This homework is a priority. You have the flexibility to complete all homework in 1 day if that is what works best for you and your family but it is better to spend 10-15 minutes a night to review these concepts and ensure they are fully understood for best learning. Either way, the homework NEEDS to be completed and returned to the teacher each week.
Please work with your children to ensure they are completing their homework properly and returning it to school by the due date. Thank you for your continued support and for choosing TLC.
