More Information About Weston Memorial Junior Public School

Literacy

Strong emphasis is placed on teaching our students to be critical thinkers by listening and speaking, reading and writing, viewing and representing. Our students learn a variety of reading and writing strategies, including activating prior knowledge, previewing text features, and ways to apply learning to make meaning of the text.

 

Numeracy

Strong emphasis is placed on thinking critically by developing mathematical understanding, learning important facts, strategies and procedures, developing the ability to apply, justifyand communicate thinking and ideas clearly.   We are creating a climate that supports all students in developing their confidence in solving math problems.

Equity

We continue to ensure there is consistent, formal, and planned communication between home and school to ensure students' needs are met and students are well-prepared for transitions between grade panels and schools. With a focus on student voice and conditions for learning, we are helping our students to develop confidence in their abilities and advocate for their needs.

Well-Being

At Weston Memorial, all students, parents and staff work together to build an inclusive learning environment that is safe, respectful, orderly and purposeful.  We hold monthly Character Education assemblies to celebrate the hard work of our students.   Families are invited to join us! Students are being taught how to self-regulate and advocate for their needs.

WHAT SETS US APART

Weston Memorial JPS  has always been a strong supporter of early learning and engaging all of our learners to ensure there is a culture of inquiry and play-based learning in our classrooms in a variety of intentional ways.  
 
We have a very active and supportive School Advisory Council and parent community.  Our home and school partnership is very strong and important to us!
 
We created a long-range, ECO Schools plan to build on our outdoor classroom, enhance our outdoor play areas for all students, focus on litterless lunches, recycling and composting, and working together to be mindful and respectful of our planet Earth! We recently had twelve native trees planted in our junior yard and some planted in our primary (west) yard.  
Thanks to a Live Green Toronto Community Grant and TDSB funding, we were able to   revitalize our yard and outdoor classroom space!
