Westhaven School students excited

for the return of Phys Ed Teacher

We are very excited to have Ms. LeMoal return as our Phys. Ed teacher,
Madame Deidre working with students on Music and Madame Emily
providing Drama classes. We have also hired Madame Emily as our
second French Immersion Kindergarten teacher, to help us divide our
large FRIM Kindergarten class. Other changes to our programming is in
regards to Mrs. Marcoff providing Westhaven School with 5 hours of
Learning Support. Mrs. Marcoff is knowledgeable about inclusion and
the Alberta program of study. She will help staff build capacity and
provide supports that will help all students in their learning.
We have been able to maintain our PRTI (Pyramid Response to
Intervention Time) time. This time allows each classroom teacher to
provide 30 minutes of PRTI time to small groups of students, four times a
week. This is designed to help any struggling students in language arts or
math concepts. We also provide Levelled Literacy Intervention for our
grade two students and after Christmas to our grade one students. Many
teachers also provide Daily five literacy learning within the classroom
environment to assist students in reading. Parents can always help by
reading every day with students at home.
