Welcome to Johnny Bright School – students (and their families) registered here have chosen to be part of an exciting and rewarding journey! All students and staff are part of a learning community committed to “high levels of learning for all students” – excellence in learning opportunities for all!
- Athletics and activity for learning
- Citizenship and community involvement
These “pillars” provide a framework that will encourage and support learning as we set goals, thrive, and grow as learners for this year and many years to come. We will build our legacy together.
Our staff will continue to support learning as we lay the foundation as a professional learning community – we are committed to the focused, intentional work that is involved in providing excellent learning opportunities for all students. “These are all our students” is our commitment that we share every day in practice. We are a staff team that embraces the premise that the very purpose of the school is to help all students learn at high levels. We will face the very challenging questions of, “Learn what?” and “How will we know if each student has learned?” We will be guided by the Alberta Program of Studies and standards of performance as outlined in our school’s Assessment Plan posted to SchoolZone.
We will use learning results to guide and inform our decisions about programming and classroom practice as we work with clear intentions to meet the needs of all students. A school-wide system of interventions will be adopted and will rely on our collaborative culture with everyone “in”: a school culture in which staff members work together to provide each student with access to essential learning outcomes and a culture in which the growth of each student is assessed in a way that is timely, authentic and consistent.
As we continue our work this year, we will be paying particular attention to ensuring we communicate effectively about student learning. This is an area where parents, as partners in learning, will be important participants in our learning community as it continues to expand.
This website is intended to work with SchoolZone and our weekly Friday Update as to provide timely, updated, meaningful and effective communication between the home and the school.
So welcome to Johnny Bright School 2016 - 2017. We hope you take up the invitation to be involved.
With the greatest of respect, thanks and appreciation,
Scott Millar, Principal
