For the 2016-17 school year we will continue to focus our work towards meeting our two main goals.
- Improved Student Literacy: At Waldheim School we want every student to be an avid, lifelong reader. Our goal is to help students build their comprehension skills and their reading stamina. Using My Prairie Spirit Classroom as a guiding strategy, we will work with our students to help them select just right books and walk beside them on their learning journey. We believe in timely, consistent reading intervention strategies and feel that the key to success is built upon a solid foundation created in the early years.
- Improved Student Engagement: We believe it is important for everyone to be engaged in rigorous, relevant lessons that have been created by teachers who have a strong learning relationship with their students. At Waldheim School we strive to create programming that meets the needs of students while allowing the freedom of choice in what and how they learn. During the year we will work with the students to hear their opinions on how we are doing and how we can make our school a more engaging place to be.
If you would like to hear more about what we are doing please contact Mr. Mason or Mr. Mellesmoen at the school.
