Gator Bites: Week of February 5th

posted Feb 1, 2018, 2:45 PM by David Willoughby

Good Evening Gator Families,

Here are some highlights from our week here at Sam Sherratt:

Our grade 7 students enjoyed a visit to Milton District Secondary School, where they learned about some of the technology classes that are offered in the Exploring Technologies class in Grade 9.

We were very lucky to have our first “Jam Session” with Aaron Little from the band, See Spot Run. All students were welcome to listen and participate over the lunch break in the mall and music room. Thank you Mr. Smith for organising!!

PD Day on Friday, February 2nd, 2018. No School.

Reminder to Parents who wish to join us at our Parent Council Meeting. We will be hosting our next Parent Council Meeting on Monday, February 5th, 2018 beginning at 6:30pm in the Learning Commons.

We currently have some teachers and 2 classes of students involved in the “Leading Student Achievement Project”. The focus is using the “12 Principles of Knowledge Building” to support inquiry and math in classrooms by using the Knowledge Forum tool. Mr. Charrey’s class is using KF as a tool for inquiry in the Grade 6 Space unit. Students are learning to work collaboratively towards a common understanding of the topic. In Mr. Goral’s class, they are working on using the KF to solve mathematical problems of the week.

EQAO Reminder: This year our Grade 3 and 6 students will be writing the EQAO test from May 22nd to June 4th, 2018.

In Partnership,

Maggie Parker, Principal

Bita Watts - Vice Principal

and the Staff of Sam Sherratt
