| Director's Message

Dear Families,

We look forward to seeing you on campus next Saturday, February 3rd for our International Night. We are thrilled to be able to host this event again at our school.

Please ask your child about their experience today at Student Advocacy Conferences. Asking students to consider their learning environment and process is important – students should have a voice in their education!

Have a great weekend.

Best Regards,
Rachel Geary

| "Empower" Lesson Plans

The Empower curriculum integrates the Success Orientations, Social Emotional Learning concepts, and Child Protection principles into individual lessons throughout the year. These lessons will be delivered during a dedicated weekly EMPOWER class time. This approach aims to equip students with a comprehensive set of skills applicable throughout their lives. Specific lessons tailored to each grade level ensure developmental appropriateness. While some concepts may be revisited annually, the lessons will vary based on the students' age. For more information, please see the QSI Empower statement.

Teachers will keep parents informed about the upcoming lessons for their child, and for certain grades, the lesson plans will be accessible in this newsletter. Click on the post below to view the message from the teacher.
