On Wed, VCE hosted school trustees, district staff and PAC members for the School Improvement Plan presentation. The guests were very impressed with the work our students and staff. We focused on highlighting the three school goals: collaboration, self-regulation and kindness & empathy. Thank you to all for representing our school well.
As some of you have noticed, we have been converting our old computer lab into a MakerSpace. A MakerSpace is a physical location where students can gather to share resources and knowledge, work on projects, network, and build in collaborative environment. For more info, please refer to: http://www.edutopia.org/blog/starting-school-makerspace-from-scratch-colleen-graves We are looking for donations to start stocking the MakerSpace. If you have items that were listed on the Wed’s announcements, we would appreciate it.
On Monday, the school is closed due to a ProD day. On Tues, we are starting our preparation for our Gr. 6’s move to Don Ross Secondary School with a transition meeting among staff.
