Inspired by Cale Birk’s (@birklearns) post encouraging bloggers to post 10 photos of their school, I went around my school Friday and snapped some pics. Here is a quick tour of images (actually 12 pictures) from Kent Elementary School in Agassiz, BC. Enjoy!
Our school sign currently promoting "Identity Day" next week! Thanks @gcouros for the idea!
The back field of our school with beautiful Mt. Cheam towering over us. Our intermediate playground is just around the corner.
We do not give out awards at our school. We recognize and honour each student for their strengths. Next year, I am hoping to line our walls with posters created by students that showcase their strengths and passions.
We are extremely proud of our garden - designed, created, and sustained by staff and students. What a brilliant place to learn! ("borrowed" this pic from another season)
Our housepost at the front of our school, designed and created by artist Don Froese who currently resides in Seabird.
One of our classrooms is packed most lunch hours with knitters. Our knitting club began after a huge interest was observed in our CHOICES program.
Our model of a racing canoe that hangs in one of our clasrooms. Designed by local Chehalis artist, Rocky Larock, it reads "Mekw' wat i:xel" which is Halq'emeylem for "pulling together" - a motto at our school.
Intramurals/House Games are huge at our school. Run by a few teachers, they occur Monday-Thursday at lunch throughout the year for our intermediate students. The participants each get recognized with a little photoshop poster - just for fun!
Our librarian helps to promote literacy by asking students from each division to recommend their favourite books for others to enjoy.
To increase collaboration, teachers have added more tables and couches. This teacher has removed the desks.
A board in a classroom that highlights all the strengths and passions of each student. Posters, crests, and images like these are found in most classrooms at Kent School.
Oops - how did this one get in there? A poster that is prominent in our hallway - GO CANUCKS GO!
