At Erin Woods School, children and adults have the right to:
• be educated • be respected • feel safe • learn to • be engaged • belong • be optimistic
The students understand that their job is to learn academics and how to be responsible citizens. Teachers are focused on developing their practice to ensure students are engaged in rich tasks. Students undertake studies to answer questions like:
How does music impact people around the world? How can we use a function table to solve a word problem? Do we have to use numbers in equations or function tables? Can we create a code to explain a pattern for our wampum belts? Can you create a pattern from someone else’s code? How do we use writing to communicate our understanding of trees?
A safe environment is important to all of us, which we accomplish through a constant focus on our Student Purpose Statement and the rights and responsibilities of learning. Students learn and practice social skills and problem-solving in a safe and caring environment.
Homework The CBE Administrative Regulation 3066 - Homework provides the guidelines for homework expectations for students within our system. It is expected that elementary students in Grades 1-3 will receive homework that does not exceed 5-10 minutes each night. It is expected that elementary students in Grades 4-6 will receive homework that does not exceed 20 minutes in length each night.
At Erin Woods School, homework will not be assigned on weekends or holidays. We will be sending more information home from each grade group team that outlines homework expectations and activities.
Enjoy homework with your child. The opportunity to read together and talk about the reading is invaluable and memory your child will hold forever. Math facts can be practiced in a fun and engaging way by setting the table, making grocery lists, or finding an activity that allows children to understand math instead of just memorizing math. Our survey of parents demonstrated a variety of opinions about homework. All students have access to books online through Bookflix and Trueflix.
Learning Support Our curriculum content is mandated in the Program of Studies provided by Alberta Learning.
We strive to personalize learning. Learning strategies are differentiated and designed to honor individual student needs. In addition, a School Learning Team (SLT) exists to work with teachers and parents in this regard. The SLT includes the principal, the assistant principal, Learning Leader, and classroom teacher, Any questions parents have regarding their child’s learning should first be directed to the classroom teacher.
