Protocols

 

We are mentored by women role models who are older than we are. They help solve personal problems and talk with us about what we might do in the future.

In the 2013-14 school year, our junior high program was one of only about 25 schools across Canada to partner with an Olympic Athlete as part of the Classroom Champions program. Students communicated with ski-cross Olympian Danielle Sundquist about personal journeys, hard work, goal setting and perseverance several times per month, integrating readings, writing, listening, speaking, technology and character. See below for artifacts about this unique opportunity!
