It is my sincere honour and privilege to begin working with Sakaw students, parents and staff for the 2020-21 school year. What a welcoming, inspiring, and supportive community this is! I have already learned so much about the teaching and learning at our school.
This year we will introduce and build our Compass of Courage together. The Compass has been adapted from Martin Brokenleg's Circle of Courage work and will build our community around Belonging, Growth, Responsibility and Purpose. I am excited to see students grow their value of others and value of themselves as this work evolves.
In these unusual circumstances, we are prepared to support students and families to ensure a successful and safe year of learning. We continue to seek ways to remain connected as partners in your child's learning even while we are cooperating at a distance. I encourage you to reach out to the school office team with any questions you may have.
Yours in partnership,
Mrs. Elizabeth Fraser
