Principal's Message | November

Terrace Road School has had a busy fall filled with various opportunities for staff to connect with families to learn more about our students either through interviews in September or upcoming interviews on Nov. 16th and 17th. In addition we have had family events such as the Corn Roast, multiple volunteer opportunities from classroom volunteers to swimming volunteers.

Staff and students are settled into classroom and school routines, teachers have established expectations for home reading and homework and students are digging in to learning.

As our students get into learning our staff are already coming together, going over report card data and discussing our professional development work for this school year. This year our staff has decided to focus on how students create original text for multiple purposes. This will entail using our Friday afternoons for staff to come together to analyze writing samples and look at strategies we can utilize to help our students become more proficient writers. Please expect to see a lot of writing coming home as our students share their work with their families.

Just a reminder to help keep our students safe, all students SHOULD not be dropped off in the bus zone. Although the days are snowy students are still expected to come into the school through the playground entrance.

As always, I invite families to come out and join us at School Council. We always meet the first Monday of each month at 6:30pm. A School Council is defined in the School Act as a collective association designed to advise the Principal on matters related to the school. If you haven’t had the opportunity to join us in the past, I invite you to come join us this month and make your voice heard. We are a small group but we discuss many important initiatives that are coming up at Terrace Road School and we would love to hear your ideas.
School council would like to remind you of the SPUD fundraising event that is ongoing. Please check out the link below for further information:
