Communicating Student Learning

In order to keep our community informed on changes with Report Cards, Assessment, Making Learning Visible, and overall Communication of Student Progress, I will add notices, research paper links, surveys, and examples throughout this year.

As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to email (, phone (604-296-9002), or stop by the school any time.
