Springtime is a time to celebrate new growth. At Greendale we are excited and proud of our student accomplishments as we continue to inspire our students to demonstrate strong character and powerful thinking. Recently, our grade four students completed the Foundation Skills Assessment in February and our results showed that, 40% of our students exceeded expectations in Reading and 60% were meeting expectations. 90% of our students were either meeting or exceeding expectations in writing and 50% of our students exceeded expectations in Numeracy and 50% were meeting expectations. We are very proud of all of our students at Greendale and are grateful for the wonderful work teachers and parents are doing to assist the children in their progress! Results like this don’t happen without a lot of work from kindergarten to Grade 4! We are currently finishing our school wide lessons on being a Difference Maker! Come look at our Difference Maker board by the office where we have recognized many students and adults for their amazing contributions. Our focus for April is “outstanding effort in the classroom” and “respect.” Thank you parents, staff and students for being ‘Partners in Learning.’ Together, we are helping our Greendale students to grow in significant ways.

Greendale students will develop as articulate learners, communicating ideas, information, and feelings, both critically and creatively. Greendale students will use a variety of strategies, features and conventions of language, while incorporating technology.
Kindergarten registration is happening now. If you know of any children who will be 5 years old by the end of 2016, please remind their parents to register their child at their neighbourhood school as soon as possible. The office needs a birth certificate, care card and proof of address.
