Diefenbaker Elementary School


In order to enhance the learning of our students, we will take purposeful action.  Below are some examples we are considering:

  • Highlight the Communication Core Competency
  • Use common language across grades (Kindness Umbrella)
  • Increase cross-disciplinary integration of ideas
  • Highlight real-life applications for action and learning
  • Increase use of “I Statements” for student self-assessment
  • Provide staff collaboration and discussion time to reflect and make plans
  • Implement school wide sharing events and activities

As we continue to focus on our Social Awareness and Responsibility, we want to observe that students are better able to:

  • understand and apply the language of kindness
  • understand themselves as people and learners who can take responsibility for their social and physical environments
  • demonstrate a sense of personal empowerment
  • share ideas and inspire others by working independently and collaboratively for the benefit of others 
  • are aware of the impace of the decisions, actions and footprint  

Our Goals for 2020-2021

  • create more opportunities to connect our community members together
  • make our learning visible throughout the school
  • find meaningful ways to communicate student learning to our community
