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!
Ensuring that our student’s needs and programs have been carefully considered involves teams at all levels. Thanks for everyone’s assistance and support in meeting the Ministry’s 1701 timeline as well!
At our last staff meeting, we collectively reviewed the process for improving our Professional Growth Plans.
TOGETHER, WE LEARN!
Tim, one of our district elementary counsellors, and ‘pancake flipper extraordinaire‘, works with the Duncan Cran team to welcome their community back to school! A great way to start the year – as well as the day! The place was buzzing with smiles!

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 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!
Hello everyone! We are looking forward to working together as an even better and stronger team! TOGETHER WE LEARN, right?!!
Stay tuned to our new website for continuous updates. Huge thanks to Jarrod Bell for his fabulous patience and skills as he supports us through this learning curve with technology!
Don’t forget to preview the district Pro-D calendar, highlight sessions that might be pertinent to your professional growth, have discussions with your
school administration, and perhaps we’ll see you here at District Office!
Itinerants will be meeting at Student Support Services for the first two days, and will be developing their process and schedules around their caseloads and support to schools. They’ll be in touch with you soon!
Have a great year!
the SSS Gang!
Thank you to Greg Large and Norm Stringer from S.D. Maintenance Dept. for their hard work and dedication needed to modify Johnathan’s bike. Johnathan’s smile reflects his excitement at being able to ride a bike for the first time!
