Weekly Website Draw

At Henry Braun we want to encourage families to visit our school website regularly to find out what is happening in and around the school.

Each week we will be adding new stories, events and updates about the school.

 

Each week we will be posting a Weekly Website Word.  Tell your child the website word or have them write it in their agenda.  Students will then fill in Website Word ticket at school.  We will be making Website draws each week with many prizes to give away. 

 

Our School Hours are 8:53am - 11:45am  and   12:45pm - 3:37

Parking Around the School

Every year around this time, people start to ignore the no stopping and no parking signs near the school. While we understand the desire to minimize your child's exposure to the elements, disobeying the law creates an unsafe situation for students who are walking to and from school, and the parents who are choosing to park in the specified areas. The school bus must have adequate space to park and let students off and there is never a reason to park in the bus zone.  As such, parking tickets will be issued on a regular basis to cars disobeying the posted signage. We appreciate your understanding and support as we try to make the school as safe a place as possible for our students.

Progress Reports

Progress Reports went home on March 20. See below for some information on the new format:

Regina Public Schools Grades 1 through 8 students are bringing home a new progress report in the 2012‐2013 school year. Parents or guardians are vital partners in a child's education and want clear, meaningful information about how their child is doing at school. The new Progress Report:

  • Encourages ongoing communication between you and your child's teacher;
  • Continues to report on all academic subjects;
  • Includes a more detailed Outcome Progress Report that specifically reports literacy and numeracy outcomes; and
  • Continues to use the Personal/Social Growth Rubric to demonstrate how well your child is developing the citizenship and work habits essential for success.

Why the change?

  • New outcomes based provincial curricula
  • Educational research
  • Desire for greater clarity and consistency regarding school grading practices
  • Criteria for outcomes thus creating meaning for students and parents
  • Separates student achievement from behavior and effort
  • Helps inform teacher instruction
  • Teaches students what quality looks like

What are outcomes and indicators?

  • Outcomes: the important understandings and abilities to be developed in each subject area
  • Indicators: a breakdown of what students need to know and/or be able to do to achieve an outcome

What can parents expect for the November reporting period?

  • A focus on your child's learning based on curricular outcomes
  • A conference focussing on what is going well and on opportunities for growth
  • A Progress Report with a Level of Achievement for each subject area
  • An Outcome Report that reports on each outcome ELA, Math and FLA (French Immersion learners)
  • Personal Social Growth Rubric
