 Grade 4 – Foundation Skills Assessment

This is a provincial grade 4, 7, 9 assessment in the areas of literacy and numeracy.  The purpose of the assessment is to see how well students in SD#60 are doing in relationship to the students in the rest of the province.  In addition, we can see how our students are doing in relationship to other students in the District. This helps us determine what we need to do to improve as a school.  Parents in grade 4 have received information on how to take part in the provincial satisfaction survey.  Please take a few minutes to complete the survey on-line.

Cultural Event

Each class will participate in a zoom event on February 25th. It presentation is call Body Percussion.

Ways to Support Learning at Home 

The best way to support your child’s success at school is to ensure that they do home reading daily.  This practice reinforces what they are learning at school.  All students are assigned home reading.  Further, intermediate students should be practicing their multiplication facts.

  Yours truly,

Pat Lang,
