This Friday there will be no school as it is a Professional Development Day. The staff at Parkdale School will be working on developing school-wide plans for Literacy and Numeracy. The Division One teachers will be having a session on the Words Their Way Program in the morning (as they developed their plan last year) and the Division Two and Three teachers will be developing their plan and locating resources to help implement the school-wide plan. We are also going to be doing some work to further develop and establish quality classroom libraries so our students will have access to quality, relevant and high-interest books. The more we can expose our students to books, the easier it will be to persuade them about the importance of reading.
We will also be looking at the school data that we have collected, so we can plan lessons for the students that will support their individual growth.
We have a full day of learning planned for the staff at Parkdale School.
