Thank you to our first Student Focus Group, who spent time with school administration discussing the results of the Student Census Survey. The results of the survey will be used to help frame our Wellness goal as a school. Today’s discussion included topics such as how students feel about their school, caring adults, making friends, class participation, bullying, and a range of emotions students identified (happy, feel good about yourself, confidence, sadness, loneliness, and pressure/stress). We will be holding more Student Focus Groups, and invite parents to our Parent Focus Group on December 6 at 4 PM, where we will review the results of the Parent Census Survey results.

Today, our students, staff, and parents took time to reflect on the importance of Peace and the sacrifices made to protect it at our Remembrance Day ceremony. Special thanks to Ms. MacNeil for planning and organizing the ceremony, and to all the students who sang, recited, and created wreaths in remembrance. We ended the ceremony by asking our students to think how they can show and build Peace in the school community.
