On June 3rd Ford dealership will have nine vehicles at our school from 9am to 4pm. This is a fundraising event so the more people who test drive a Ford, the more money we raise. The following is the link where you must pre-register if you are interested in participating in this event to help raise money for our school:
Home and School will be having a bake sale and BBQ at the Ford Drive event on June 3rd. If you are interested in donating a baked good, could you please forward your name and number to the school and we will be in contact with you. Thanks so much!!!!!
Just a reminder to parents to complete the parent survey before the end of May. Information was sent home with the link to the survey. If you need that link please contact the school. (Sorry it can not be posted here).
OurSCHOOL – Provincial School Survey Program, 2017
Schools across PEI are implementing a provincial school survey program called OurSCHOOL. The program involves surveys for students, teachers and parents. Surveys will run the first 3 weeks of May. Permission forms for Grades 4-8 are being sent home today. You only need to sign if you do not want your child to participate in the survey.
PEI is partnering with The Learning Bar, an Atlantic Canadian company. The OurSCHOOL Survey is the largest school survey in Canada. The surveys are developed by researchers and educators and in consultation with leading experts and panels of students, teachers and principals. Measures are based on current leading-edge educational research, producing reliable and valid results. For more information on The Learning Bar, visit http://www.thelearningbar.com/.
Results will provide current information about our school and learning, and will help to inform our school goals, identify successes and areas for improvement, inform policies and programs, and share results with parents and the community.
Students will complete the survey during class time on Thursday, May 11th. They will be able to provide their views on their experiences at school such as:
- Engagement and relationships with others
- The learning environment
- Sense of safety and support
(Note: Students may skip any questions they do not feel comfortable answering.)
Parents will be provided with an invitation from their school to complete the survey. Parent survey will be activated later today. Information with the link to the survey is being sent home through SAS for Grades 7 and 8. A paper copy will be provide to parents of students in Grades 4-6 and those in Grades 7 and 8 who we do not have an email address for.
Parents will be able to express their views on their child’s experience at home and at school such as:
- Communication between school staff and parents
- School support for their child’s learning
- Inclusion and safety at school
Teachers will be able to express their views on policies and practices in their school such as:
- Their teaching experience and practices
- Leadership in their school
- Their engagement with parents
