A very nice reunion!


Mr. Rick Davis, Superintendent of Achievement, visited our district today. District staff had an invigorating discussion around the great things we are doing for our children.

The best part of this visit, for me that is, was having a great reunion with my Grade 7 teacher! Mr. Davis was an awesome teacher and person way back when … and, I have to say, it feels great knowing that he continues to be a great leader with our Ministry of Education!

1701 time!

Secondary Support at Schools

Student Support Services crew at the Secondary levels met this week to gear up for another year! These folks, in positions such as Learning Assistance, Life Skills, Alternate Ed, Positive Behaviour Intervention, Reading Intervention, and Modified Support, work hard to meet our students’ needs… “ALL students, ALL learning, ALL Achievements…ANY time, ANY Place, ANY Pace!” You guys rock!

Our LA’s are back at it!

Our LA?Äôs!
Our Learning Assistants continue to collaborate regularly, actively learning and pursuing ‘best practice’ to meet the needs of our children. We value the many strengths of all our LA’s, as their role is an integral component of the school based team that supports students and staff. Literacy, Numeracy, Language Development, Learning Disabilities, Sensory needs, Fine Motor support, Behaviour support form the topics for discussion at the regular LA collaborative meetings. Another great year has been planned by Kim Boettcher, the Learning Assistant Support Itinerant! Huge kudos to all our LA’s!
