Strong Beginnings will be held this year on September 11 and 14. This means that students in Kindergarten to Grade 8 will not have regular classes on those two days, but will attend a prescheduled appointment. Appointment times were sent home in the June report card. Please contact the school office if you do not know when your child’s appointment is scheduled. The aim of this program is to enhance the beginning of the year classroom assessment of all children. This is an opportunity for teachers to extend and consolidate their understanding of each child in order to plan for instruction that will effectively address unique learning needs. We look forward to meeting with our students on an individual basis during the two days and anticipate that there will be many positive outcomes from the process. The opportunity for one-to-one and small group meetings with our students will allow us to get to know them better both as learners
