School Focus For This Year
This year at Alexmuir, we have a school-wide focus on technology. We are proud to say that we currently have Smart Boards in all grade 1 to 6 classrooms and our library. We are working towards introducing Smart Boards in the ESL classroom and our Kindergarten classrooms as soon as possible.
As a staff, we work monthly within our Smart Board Professional Learning Groups to support each other’s growth with this fabulous technology. Our students have embraced this new technology and are more engaged than ever in the learning opportunities provided by our staff.
In our continuing commitment to improve the literacy skills of our students, we continue to offer extensive opportunities for students to improve their skills in the area of reading, writing, listening, and speaking. Our library is well-stocked, up-to-date and accessible for research, writing, browsing and reading.
In the area of mathematics, we support our students and staff to continue as life long learners and develop critical thinking and communication skills. Problem solving and communication of mathematical thinking continues to be a strong school focus. We are also committed to using more manipulatives in all classes as an integral part of our mathematics program.
Our commitment to technology continues to be a major thrust and focus. Students at Alexmuir benefit from a well equiped computer lab, computers in their clasrooms and Smart Boards. Our grade 6 students are also thriving with the introduction of laptops into their classroom.
We continue to promote self-respect, respect for others, and respect for our enviroment. We teach and reinforce skills to promote personal and social responsiblity and keep our school enviroment free from bullying, harassment and violence. We encourage our children to be creative problem solvers and implement conflict resolution strategies.
