We moved forward into the 2018-2019 school year with many new students, families and staff members. Through our year long scanning and action processes, we learned:
- building relationships and connections take time, effort and intentionality; we will continue to focus on this next year
- direct teaching and modelling of socially responsible behaviours, attitudes and values are essential; don't make assumptions about what you think people know
- what you see on the outside may not necessarily be what's also happening in the inside; be curious and observant (ask questions)
- WE CAN DO THIS! WE'VE BEGUN THE JOURNEY AND CAN SEE PROGRESS. Each day, we see the connections and joy in our students as they play and learn together.
So what's next for 2019-2020? We continue to focus on the Social Responsibility Competencies of contributing to the community, valuing diversity and building strong relationships.
