New frontiers for new learning

We had a great night here at Lorna Jackson Public School. We extend our appreciation to our school council for running our Movie Night this evening. Over 250 students and family members joined us as a community. Special thanks to one parent who even loaned us the popcorn cart for our festivities. We were also delighted to be able to showcase our new mural – The Gathering Tree – recently completed. Once again, we thank our parent artist Mrs Guido for her vision and for inspiring our students to create a beautiful centerpiece in our main foyer.
We have really celebrated our community this past month. With a decade of good work completed as a school community, and with Elder’s Mills students and families set to join us in September, now is a perfect time to dream about where we go next.
We will announce a very special initiative soon that I am most excited about.
In advance of the initiative, I would like us to begin with a concept we use in education called “Minds On” which is a strategy that allows us to:
• establish a positive learning environment
• connect to prior learning and/or experiences
• set a context for learning
For this “virtual Minds On”, I want us to consider the following two points:
– Who are “we” as an LJPS community?
– What do we believe in as an LJPS community?
Feel free to respond here with your thoughts.
Your thoughts will very much help us in the work we are about to engage in next month.
If you have enjoyed what we have done so far…..
………..we think you are really going to love what we have planned next.

As a school, there are many things that define who we are as an organization, as a community and define the work we do collectively. Our students’ agendas contain pages developed by the school several years ago. It is important for us to review these pages to ensure they continue to best reflect our work and our needs as a community. We also need to ensure the expectations and information are clear for all students, staff and parents.
Therefore, we need and welcome your feedback.
As part of our board’s Homework policy, schools are asked to review it’s own homework policy every two years. Our own school policy resides in your child’s agenda pages on page 8. Please take time to review the policy and offer us feedback.
Our school’s dress code (on page 2) is another area we need feedback on from students, staff and parents from time to time within the parameters of our board’s Dress Code policy.
Further, we would also like your feedback on the agenda pages as a whole.
As always, we welcome your feedback here. However, feedback may always be sent directly to the principal or anonymously via our feedback folder located on our community board at the front entrance of the school.
