School Wide Theme
This year our theme is “Water”. We will be focusing on the many aspects of water on the planet and in our community.

School Goals

1. To increase students’ sense of connection to school, community and environment (belonging, unity, community)
2. To improve student literacy (reading and writing) across the grades
We based our goals on the following research:

Students who feel connected to schools have greater academic success and engage in less risky behaviours. (Preventing Bullying and Ensuring Safe and Caring School Communities Level One, page 13) “Recent research shows that kids who are in programs that promote their social and emotional understanding . . . are more motivated in school, have fewer behavioural problems, have higher standardized achievement test scores [and] end up being happier, healthier people,” Kim Schonert-Reichl, UBC associate professor
