A thought on motivation…

Daniel Pink’s research around what motivates people in different situations is an interesting piece of the puzzle as we continue to think about the changes we are working through in assessment.  His work is summarized here in this animation based on his book called Drive: The Surprising Truth About What Motivates Us.  Happy weekend, stay warm:)

Access Plan Clarification

Moving students in and out of the facility is going fairly smoothly overall. A few reminders to parents and guardians as we continue to settle into the facility.

The area in front of the Legends Centre (east side of the facility) is for school bus loading. Please do not make arrangements to pick up your children from the Legends Centre parking lot immediately before or after school when the buses are on site. It is very dangerous for students to be walking between buses to access the Legends parking lot.

Pedestrian traffic and parent/guardian pickup takes place on the west side of the building. Students walking home should be exiting through the assigned student exit to the park paths and sidewalks. Private vehicles should park along Gowan Road when parents/guardians are picking up students.

The decision to have students enter/exit through different access points was made very strategically, and with the input of many different stakeholders,  to ensure the safety of all students.  If you have any questions or concerns about this plan, please do not hesitate to contact the office.
