Hello Willow Park Families,
Time is certainly flying by! It is hard to believe that November is already underway. Each day at Willow Park is filled with learning and creating. Students are building strong bonds with each other and with their teaching team. Our school community continues to grow stronger each day. Our students are active in their learning, exploring the curriculum, seeking support and interacting with new concepts through the Arts Centered lens.
We continue to grow our understanding of the Holistic Lifelong Learning Framework, anchoring learning to the quadrant the Body- To Do, looking at the concepts of independence and collaboration as well as risk taking and resiliency. The art work of Lance Cardinal is in focus as we explore these big ideas.
We are proud of our student athletes who have participated, thus far in cross country running, soccer and volleyball. We commend our leadership students who have organized so many events already, including class challenges and teacher appreciation day.
Our Fine Arts team is busily preparing for our school-wide recognition of Remembrance Day, as always thinking of creative and meaningful ways for us to honour this day.
We were thrilled to welcome performance poet Wakefield Brewster, who shared his passion and talent with our grade 9 students. We also welcomed Kyle Charles, virtually into our classrooms, to share his craft of writing and illustrating comics. We look forward to many more artists joining our learning journey this year.
