Principal's Message from Mme K. Spragg

Happy New Year!!   I hope that everyone feels refreshed and ready to work hard again after the two-week break.  In sports, we are moving out of the volleyball season into basketball for both the boys and girls.  Students are continuing to enjoy skating at the arena.  

In addition, students and staff are concluding first term assessments as report cards are being prepared to go out on Friday, February 20th.  

A big thank you to the SCC for purchasing two new document cameras for the school.  These classroom tools, which attach to an LCD player in order to project students’ work onto a screen, encourage collaborative discussions among students as everyone can see the work clearly.   
  
What the teachers are thinking about…

Teachers are reading Mindsets in the Classroom by Mary Cay Ricci which explores how educators can build a growth mindset culture within a school.  One concept that the author challenges is “full potential” and what that really means.  “How does potential become full”?  Is it something that can be checked off on a report card?  Potential can never be “full”; it is never-ending and our possibilities are infinite.  As a person grows, learning and experiences become more sophisticated and challenging, growth continually occurs, and potential is never reached because it is impossible to reach.”  (Ricci, p. 8)   Check out Mary Cay Ricci at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ei85h9VU4aA
