Dear Families,

Thank you to all the parents who attended our Coffee Chats this week. I enjoyed talking to you and hearing your thoughts, suggestions and concerns. My door is always open if you would like to meet.

May 31st we will have our Student Led Conferences (SLC) at school. Students do not attend classes that day but do accompany you to school to meet with their teachers! Appointments are made directly with the teacher for the younger students (8-years-old and less) and on the Family Moodle for all other students from Wednesday, May 22nd to May 30th Registration will close at 1 PM on May 30th.

You will see the MAP (Measure of Academic Progress) results on your Family Moodle. Please bring your questions to the SLC!

I am very much looking forward to the Spring Fling Art Fest tomorrow and hope to see you there!

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.
