Social Responsibility at Bert Ambrose
We are very proud of our Social Responsibility at Bert Ambrose Elementary!
We will soon be entering into our 5th year of our Virtue’s Program at our school. We focus every year on being Respectful. Responsible and Resourceful. We even have a song written by Paul Hann a professional songwriter, which our whole school sings on a regular basis.
In our Social Responsibility Plan we have a team leader, our grade five teacher, Mr. Filmer who works with the staff. Each classroom teacher chooses one of the three themes and reports out once a year at a Virtue’s Assembly. We have three Virtue’s Assemblies, one each term, and the four classroom teachers work together. They prepare skits and songs, to share with the entire school at these wonderful assemblies.
Also in our School Improvement Plan we have been tracking Social Responsibility for the entire school population. (Solving Problems in Peaceful Ways). We have been doing this for over five years and teachers provide this information at each reporting period. The results demonstrate that we know our students who need support. The percentage of students who are Minimally Meeting to Exceeding Expectation this rubric of Solving Problems in Peaceful Ways has been sustained at 96% over the last five years.
We are very proud of Bert Ambrose Elementary.
