At Sacred Heart School we aim for excellence in education and endeavour to meet the unique needs of every student. Guided by our Catholic faith, and supported by the fabric of family and community, we are committed to meeting the spiritual, academic, physical, and emotional needs of individual students,  Within a learning environment that is both stimulating and supportive, we foster in our students a love of learning, a strong work ethic, and provide them with a solid academic foundation.  It is our hope that when students graduate from Sacred Heart, they leave with a strong moral compass and the self confidence to meet all of life's challenges head on.

Every September I am reminded of the four stages of team development: Forming, Storming, Norming and Performing. The first day of school we formed and in the following weeks we made the necessary transitions through storming and norming where we got to know each other and the expectations in the classroom. The goal, of course, is performing at the best of one's ability each day--myself included!

I have already completed reading assessments on each child and, where necessary, I will be putting in additional supports both at school and in the classroom. if you wish to know how your child is doing please feel free to drop in after school and we can chat. I am pleased to observe that the majority of the students are reading at or above the expectations for Grade 4 at the beginning of the year; my goal is to continue their growth and assist those whose reading is not yet where it needs to be in order to ensure success in the classroom.

I was pleased with how are class prepared for the first school Mass of the year and I appreciated the support of those parents who were able to participate in the Mass that day.

Our first field trip to the Coquitlam Watershed was amazing; truth be told, it is perhaps one of the best field trips I have ever been on. The Metro Vancouver guides were excellent and explained how water gets from the wateshed to our taps, the watercycle, the importance of conservation and the role we all play in protecting our drinking water. I did not know that of the 600 watersheds in the province only four are protected and include Seymour, Capilano and Coquitlam watersheds in Metro Vancouver. Another fun fact: it takes about 8 hours on average for water to leave the watershed and arrive in your home.

Lastly, parent volunteers (grandparents included!) are always welcome to volunteer in our classroom.

As you have by now come to notice, I tend not to send homework, per se. The exception is usually unfinished school work that needs to be finished the next day. I would ask that students read a book that they like and that is at their level for 25 minutes daily. Parents may want to discuss with their child what they have read, what they liked and what they learned in a short discussion afterwards. It is also helpful for students to read aloud to their parents as this is an excellent way to correct pronunciation and to ensure understanding.
 
Monday thru Friday: 
Read 25 minutes each day, please.

Homework Policy

Please check your child's planner as your student will write his or her homework in it and it may contain notes from the school that need your attention.  Please feel free to leave notes in the planner if you need to communicate to the school.

Completion Work:  Work sent home to be finished up after a reasonable amount of class time was provided.  

If you find that your child is bringing home a significant amount of completion work, it may be because they are not making good use of class time, or are having difficulty with the material.  Feel free to contact your child's teacher with any concerns you may have.  Please note:  Completion work does not count as homework on the weekends.
