The 2016-2017 school year was one of challenges and adjustments, many of which helped to lay a positive foundation for the upcoming year.
Literacy was a priority in Waskaganish as RTI was introduced to three Elementary sectors. Teachers reviewed reading levels three times throughout the year and collaborated in Professional Learning Communities to discuss challenges. Students played an active role in this progress by participating in a Cree School Board survey and sharing their experiences with our staff.
Students also enjoyed activities that helped them learn about Cree culture and language, including workshops with traditional skills, the First Snow Walk, and our annual secondary fishing trip to Smokey Hill.
