On Tuesday, May 29, Raft River will be hosting a Kindergarten Orientation afternoon for our new K students for next year. The activities will run from 1pm to approximately 2pm, and will include classroom time for the upcoming K students, a Q and A in the library for parents with administration, followed by a chance to chat with next year's K teachers. We strongly urge the parents of next year's K students to come to this information session to find out what to expect for next year, and how you can get them ready for school in September!

SOGI Update from the MInistry of Education
by Lori Bradstock - Wednesday, 2 May 2018, 4:17 PM
 

SOGI 1 2 3 has launched new SOGI 1 2 3 Parent Videos that address questions about SOGI 1 2 3 and SOGI-inclusive education in schools. The videos are designed for parents and family members to view and learn about SOGI 1 2 3 in various grade-levels. The goal of the videos is to debunk some of the common misinformation in the media and to support parents in their understanding of SOGI-inclusive education. The SOGI 1 2 3 Parent Videos are available to view and download now on SOGIeducation.org/parents.

Community Generosity
by Lori Bradstock - Monday, 26 February 2018, 4:59 PM
 

We would like to extend our thanks to the Wells Gray Community Forest Society for their generosity in helping us to purchase Sensory/Self-Regulation Equipment for all of our Primary Classrooms. At school we do many things to help children learn to self-regulate so that they can be emotionally stable, develop healthy relationships with their peers, interact in a socially appropriate manner, and focus on their learning. This is an ongoing process, which takes consistency and time, as well as special tools. A child is successfully self-regulating when he or she is able to choose the correct tools to allow them to do all of these things.


Each class received a bin containing a variety of such tools to help students focus and stay regulated. There was Kinetic Sand, Porcupine Balls, Sand Windows, Soft and Spiky shapes and Squidgie Balls just to name a few. In addition there were also wobble stools and rocker chairs as alternative seating for students who need to be able to sit and move at the same time.


We are very lucky to have the Wells Gray Community Forest Society help us to help the students of Raft River Elementary School.
