Ian Robinson

Principal Lady Grey and Field

In early November we had several staff attend SMART Learning Rounds of teaching in Invermere.

A number are also piloting a SMART Learning reading assessment research project which is part of this educational strategy under the direction of Susan Close.

Some of these ideas were shared out to staff at a Chai Chat initiated by our Vice Principal, Laurie MacDougall, to discuss best and promising practice.

Collaborative groups of teachers have been meeting the last two Tuesdays in November where they discussed our Student Success Plan objectives.

Specifically they discussed the new Ministry of Education ERASE anti-bullying initiative along with directions of anti-bullying lessons to be taught in class.

This is to further our YMCA program.  (You Matter in a Community of Awesome.)  We tied this theme into our very successful Remembrance Day assembly earlier this month with several Grade 7 students sharing their views on bullying.

Earlier today all students walked to the Civic Centre to see Alfa Ya Ya Diallo – African Dance a cultural performance funded by our PAC.  The PAC also started our Hot Lunch program in early November.

A huge thank you to our PAC for all they do for our school.

Other happenings at Lady Grey include:

-Avalanche Awareness Presentations to all classes.

-Spirit Day on Friday Nov. 30.  Students are encouraged to dress up as twins and triplets.

-Many Operation Christmas Child Shoeboxes were collected

-One-to-one tutors who are reading with many of our students

-First formal report card going out Friday, Dec. 7.

– Christmas Festival scheduled for Wed., Dec. 15 in the afternoon.

School Update

 

It’s a winter wonderland up here in Field.

It’s been a pretty quiet month for us because between sunny holidays and nasty sicknesses we’ve been a small bunch.

We are looking forward to getting back to normal and preparing for Christmas.

We’re also working on our fitness because skiing season is here and everyone is excited about that!
