PARENTS DROPPING CHILDREN OFF FOR SCHOOL

CHANGE: SCHOOL PATROLS

We will no longer be providing the second round of patrol service during the lunch hour. Patrols will not be monitoring the crosswalk from 12:05-12:20 due to a low volume of people needing the crosswalk.

Patrols will continue to monitor the crosswalk in front of the school before school, at the start of the lunch hour and after school.

For everyone's safety, especially the children's:

1. Please do not stop or park in the Handicapped zone or the bus zone, which runs along Temple Drive from the south side of the patrolled crosswalk to the lamp post nearest to the next crosswalk.

2. Please remember not to jaywalk, or do U-turns in front of the school.

3. Our neighbours across the street need us not to block their driveways when dropping off children.

4. Our final "please do not" is to not use the staff parking lot for any reason, there is parking on the street if you need to come into the school.

5. There is also parking on Templegreen Rd to the north of the school and on Templeton Circle to the east (you would use the path to cut through to Temple Drive).

SCHOOL COUNCIL NEEDS YOU! Our school council and parent society do many important things to support students of this school.

Welcome to Annie Foote School

Welcome! CHECK OUT THE PRINCIPAL'S BLOG!

 

Welcome to Annie Foote School's website! We hope that the information you are able to access on this site is helpful and informative.

 

Our basic school program remains the same with a strong focus on literacy and numeracy. Literacy block forms the foundation for our goal to have our students reading at grade level by the end of grade three. The following list highlights some of what we have planned for this year:

  • Math Basic Facts through games, practice, homework and the Khan Academy
  • Intense focus on designing excellent learning tasks for students across all subject areas - students are able to talk about what they have learned, how they learned it and why
  • Our overarching question this year is, “What matters?” We are tying this into our makerspace explorations and the tasks we design for our students
  • ZONES of Regulation, MindUp and Mindfulness practice give students strategies in self-regulation and focus
  • Morning workouts each morning “amp” up their daily physical activity
  • Brain Busters, our homework program, applies to all students and its focus is on skill development and practice
  • Focus on trauma-sensitive practice will benefit students who have or are experiencing any form of trauma – this also benefits all other students in the school

Current updates can be accessed via the Principal's Blog on the left margin of the school's home page.
