Teachers as Leaders
Marie Sharpe Elementary
After an invigorating session with Carole Fullerton, a group of Marie Sharpe teachers met to plan for assessment and instruction for the year and how to move math forward in the entire building. Conversation was rich, the planning was deep, and future goals were set. Amazing leadership shown by our teachers.
The Change Agents are students working with Mr. Julius to help by being positive leaders and helpers to our younger students. They are out in their orange vests at recess and lunch to be there to be a safe person to talk to to help with social situations. They can help with anyone who needs a buddy or solve a problem. They can also help students find an adult if the problem is too big. Thanks to our Change Agents we are proud of you!!
Leading Communicating Learning
SD 27 PVP met to discuss Dylan Wiliam's Embedded Formative Assessment and how the key concepts from the book can guide changes to communicating student learning in the district.
The World Needs More Leaders
Here in Anahim Lake we encourage our students to take risks, learn from their mistakes and to find their voice along with how to work with others. Learning looks like sharing ideas, problem solving and (most importantly) having fun!
October 18 was the first gathering of the SD 27 Leadership Series participants this school year. 36 interested teachers, principals, and vice-principals met with Superintendent Chris van der Mark to engage in a year-long dialogue about teaching and learning. Their collaboration is grounded in the key focus areas for growth of the Cariboo-Chilcotin District Plan for Learner Success and inspired by the NOIIE spiral of inquiry and Network. Shared reading for the team this year is Dylan Wiliam’s Embedded Formative Assessment. Meetings are usually over dinner and celebrate professional and student learning.
School and District and leadership team members met in the summer to learn together about a number of topics and plan for leading for enhanced student success this school year.
