Hello Louis Riel Families,
I want to thank all the students and families who came to the school and helped make our Meet the teacher night on Thursday such a success. It was fantastic to see how well attended the event was and to finally be able to put faces to names! Our families started the evening by gathering outside to socialize and enjoy the food trucks organized by our council. Families then came inside the school for a welcome message and to learn how and where they could meet our teaching staff. Elementary students went to see their classrooms and gym and our junior high students took their families through a mini timetable to meet all their teachers and see their instructional spaces. Student work, hallway art, department bulletin boards, team and individual athletics notices, and library items were all showcased throughout the school. Our leadership and Phys Ed departments set up a Bison wear store for students and their families to pick up shirts, shorts, and sweatshirts. I know I may be biased but it felt, sounded, and looked like a huge success to the staff here. We hope you enjoyed visiting our school with your students as much as we enjoyed hosting you.
Following our Meet the Teacher night, staff gathered on Friday to learn together about how to support literacy development and to identify goals and strategies for our School Development Plan. Every opportunity for Ms. Echo and I to work alongside our teachers to support student success confirms our belief that Louis Riel School is an exceptional place to teach and learn.
