Literacy Series – Creating Compassionate Learning Communities and Growth Mindset

Today was the first session of a monthly Literacy Series focused on Creating Compassionate Learning Communities and Growth Mindset led by Cindy McGarroch and Nadine Parker.  Thanks to the teachers who attended at this busy time of year.  A highlight was an opportunity for teacher sharing what they have already implemented in their classes this year.  Sharing is powerful!!  Can’t wait for the next session on October 12 @ the DDC from 4-5 pm.

Learning Services #SD60 Kick Off 2014-15

Our theme this year is Puzzle Pieces – “You’re an Essential Piece” and that is what each and every one of us are, an important piece of the puzzle.  Students, teachers, resource / support teachers, administrators, support staff, parents, community members … it takes our community to support our children!

As the Learning Services team for SD#60, our goal is to enhance our support model to children & schools.  Through a more coherent, unified and systemic approach, we strive towards increased achievements of ALL kinds for everyone, especially our children. The instructional continuum for learning using the RTI-2 (Response to Instruction & Intervention) framework and UDL (Universal Design for Learning) are key understandings to help guide this process.  We are looking forward to another exciting year of supporting ALL learners ~ EACH learner!
