City Park Collegiate Eagles

City Park Collegiate

City Park Collegiate is having a successful year filled with many highlights. Recently, City Park hosted our first ever “Family Night” on March 15 th. Families were invited to enjoy a meal, view student work and program displays in the gym, play Bingo, and visit with staff about their students’ progress in the classroom.

City Park is also a leader in Nutrition. The Ministry of Education has mandated that all schools in Saskatchewan meet certain nutritional guidelines. We have been proactive in implementing change to provide nutritional offerings in our cafeteria and in our vending machine. The changes have been well received.

We continue to gather input from our students as an ongoing part of our school improvement plan. All of our students have completed the on-line Tell Them From Me student survey. The responses will provide data about academic and the social aspects of school life, as well as give us a sense of how we can better support our students. As well a Student Forum was held giving students an opportunity to answer specific questions about their learning and to share their thoughts on a wide range of other issues. The discussion will help us inform future school decision-making.

A new program that is being offered at our school is called PX2. We are only the second school Canada to be able to offer this program. Using a curriculum developed by the Pacific Institute, teachers (certified facilitators) work with students on goal setting, developing positive mindsets, writing affirmations, and understanding the power of self-talk. It is a great opportunity for both staff and students. We are proud to host the many community activities that take place in our building. Our doors are always open and you are welcome to visit or call us anytime.

North Park Wilson School

What a busy few months we have had at North Park Wilson School. Our Kindergarten registration is well underway and we encourage anyone with a child who will be 5 years old by January 31, 2012 to register for Kindergarten this fall. Please call the school or drop by if you would like more information or a tour of the school.

We have been working hard on our three priority areas and are starting to see some fantastic results with our students. We have been incorporating First Nations ways of knowing into our daily teaching, attended a Pow Wow at City Park and visited White Buffalo Youth Lodge for Aboriginal storytelling as part of our Cultural Responsiveness priority. Our Arts Education focus has seen unique partnerships with artists, authors and musicians from Saskatoon and beyond. Our drama club, known as Drama Mia, is in full swing again and we continue to look for ways to infuse the arts into other areas of the curriculum. Our Literacy priority has also moved us forward in our writing skills and our students have shown great improvement in this area.

We are excited about spring and all the out of school opportunities that this means for our students. Our Natural Habitat Garden will soon be in full bloom and you are always invited to take a walk through the beautiful flowers and shrubs in front of the school North Park Wilson School always welcomes community members to stop by and see what is happening. If you are checking out a school for your children, looking for an opportunity to volunteer, or just want to see what your neighborhood school is up to please take time to stop in and say hello.
