Dear Parents, Staff and Community Members,
As you are aware, our school community recently took part in an online learning process. We’ve reviewed your thoughts and priorities and now want to share the results with you.
Visit http://sd85b.thoughtexchange.info/card-welcome/welcome-2/ to learn about the top priorities in our school and the top priorities of Eagle View Elementary School.
From the 93 parents, staff and community members who contributed, we learned about our strengths and the areas that we can improve. The feedback provided from this process will help to guide both short and long range planning as we continue working to create an optimal learning environment for your child.
Again, thank you so much for contributing to the success of Eagle View Elementary School. Your participation in the process was invaluable.
Principal: Eagle View Elementary School
Orange Shirt Day is a legacy of the St. Joseph Mission (SJM) residential school commemoration event held in Williams Lake, BC, Canada, in the spring of 2013. It grew out of Phyllis’ story of having her shiny new orange shirt taken away on her first day of school at the Mission, and it has become an opportunity to keep the discussion on all aspects of residential schools happening annually.
The date was chosen because it is the time of year in which children were taken from their homes to residential schools, and because it is an opportunity to set the stage for anti-racism and anti-bullying policies for the coming school year. It also gives teachers time to plan events that will include children, as we want to ensure that we are passing the story and learning on to the next generations.
Orange Shirt Day is also an opportunity for First Nations, local governments, schools and communities to come together in the spirit of reconciliation and hope for generations of children to come.
Plaid Day has been a huge success! Lots of school spirit to be seen today.
On Tuesday, October 10, students will be dismissed at 2 p.m. to facilitate Parent Teacher Interviews. Busses will be scheduled to accommodate this dismissal. Parent Teacher Interviews will be scheduled shortly.
