Both communities, Rocky Mountain House and Drayton Valley have really stepped up to support his initiative. School Family Wellness Workers  submitted a needs list for each school and all  needs were taken care of plus we had enough clothing left over to help out the local woman’s shelter, Brighter Futures and Caroline Family Center.
  • SLA Update - The grade 3 teachers have completed the marking and administration of the grade 3 student learning assessment pilot. Teachers came together in the north and the south to collaboratively discuss, reflect on and grade the numeracy and literacy performance tasks. Teachers shared that the assessments were much easier to use and provided more meaningful diagnostic information about their students. Reports on the results are to be shared with parents in a conversation explaining that the results are from a pilot administration.
