Well-Being

The Council of Directors of Education recognizes that "mental health disorders and difficulties are closely associated with declining academic performance."  The Journee annuelles de Santee Publique 2011 states that "children who experience a greater sense of well being are more able to learn and assimilate information in effective ways, more likely to engage in healthy and fulfilling social behaviours, more likely to invest in their own and others' well-being and in the sustainability of the planet." Well-being is not just a necessity for academic student acheivement, but also to effectively live in community, to live in solidarity, to become stewards of the earth and to fulfill our responsibilities to one another and to society.  When we are well, we are best able to serve others.  The wisdom of God tells us we need the Sabbath to rest, to reflect on God and rejuvenate.   Taking care of ourselves, teaching our children how to care for themselves,  benefits us all.  Only then can our children can grow and thrive to fulfill the plan God has for them.   

 

Early Years

Experts agree that the early years sets the foundation for lifelong learning, behavior, health and well-being and that early brain development is stimulated through experiences and interactions with responsive adults.  Students in the Full Day Kindergarten program will interact with both a teacher and a Designated Early Childhood Educator who will work together throughout the day to help your children learn.  During the school day children are involved in many different kinds of activities designed to help young learners explore, discover and grow.  They will have opportunities to initiate learning and play, as well as participate in more structured play-based learning under the guidance of an educator.  Research demonstrates that play-based learning leads to greater social, emotional, and academic success.  Experts recognize that play and academic work are not distinct categories for young children:  creating, doing, and learning are inextricably linked.  When children are engaged in purposeful play, they are discovering, creating, improvising, and expanding their learning.

 

Growth vs. Fixed Mindset

Research around mindset has recently made an impact on education.    Carol Dweck, professor at Stanford University tells us "a fixed mindset is when people believe their basic qualities, their intelligence, their talents, their abilities, are just fixed traits.  They have a certain amount, and that's that.  But other people have a growth mindset.  They believe that even basic talents and abilities can be developed over time through experience, mentorship and so on.  And these are the people who go for it.  ……They challenge themselves and grow..... In a growth mindset, challenges are exciting rather than threatening. So rather than thinking, "oh, I'm going to reveal my weaknesses," you say, "wow, here's a chance to grow."  Carol states that it is the drive and the passion to get things done that leads people to success.  So when supporting your children, present challenges as an opportunity to grow and learn.

KISS AND RIDE

To maintain the safety of our Kiss and Ride we request that parents do not exit the car to let their child out.  If you wish to escort your child, please use a parking spot or park on the street in the designated parking areas. Please drive all the way up to any available spaces closest to the stop signs, avoiding leaving open spaces in front of your car to allow for multiple cars to unload at once.  Please avoid unloading or stopping your car on the bend which can block the flow of traffic.
