What Are We Up To?
This year, our staff is continuing to work on developing a deeper understanding of every learner they work with. As a staff, we have committed to an inquiry process where we will go beyond assumptions. We will ask the questions:
- What is going on for our learners?
- How do we know?
- Why does it matter?
Last week, at our staff learning meeting, teachers where asked to have a side-by-side conversation with three students, asking them the following four questions:
- Can you name two people in this setting who believe you will be a success in life?
- What are you learning and why is it important?
- How is it going with your learning?
- What are your next steps?
The results of these conversations will be discussed at our next staff learning meeting. We are doing this because we believe it is important for us, as adults, to constantly evaluate our impact on student learning.
If you have any questions about what we are learning as a staff, or how you can become involved in the process, please feel free to come by the school and speak with us.

Cold Weather Policy
Should a student’s medical condition require him/her to temporarily stay indoors, we ask the parent to notify the teacher. We would encourage you to keep your child at home if they are ill.
At break times and before school, all students from Kindergarten to grade 6 will go outside and play. Your child should always come to school with proper cold weather attire, regardless of the season. When the temperature with wind-chill factor falls between -27 and -29 degrees Celsius, children will be expected to spend a shorter time outside. When the wind chill factor is -30 degrees Celsius or colder, students will not be required to go outside, however they should always have sufficient outdoor clothing in the event of an emergency. For consistency, we will use information from Environment Canada.
