Quotes for Parent Advocates
“Being a parent volunteer at Chestermere Lake Middle School was a very rewarding experience. I met new friends and discovered how much volunteers are valued and appreciated by all the staff and students. Being a parent volunteer also has given me the opportunity to stay more involved in my children's education.”
How do we define success for Chestermere Middle students?
Success for our students is based on personal excellence. Personal excellence is different for each student. This can be challenging to understand. If a child cannot speak at the beginning of the year and can use two or three word sentences by the end, that student has achieved personal excellence. If a child is gifted in math learning and completes the math program a year above his/her grade placement, we would consider this personal excellence.
What makes our school good and how do we know?
Creating Universal Learning Environments (ULE) has been a focus this year. Universal Learning Environments provide accessible instruction and experiences for all learners. ULEs remove barriers to learning for individuals so they can achieve their personal best. Many factors contribute to the removal of barriers: flexible groupings, differentiated instruction, targeted interventions, Collaborative Problem Solving methods, alternate learning spaces, access to divisional supports, access to community supports, and individualized approaches to learning. We know our school is a good place to be because most of the students are able to learn, build friendships, and become involved in the school and community.
