Clubs & Activities
We encourage our students to participate in intramurals (grade 1-grade 6) at recess and at lunch recess, choir (grade 3-grade 6), running club (grade 4-grade 6), and handbells (grade 5 and grade 6).
The mission of Kameyosek School is to ensure that all students achieve success in their studies and demonstrate ongoing growth in their character development. We believe this mission is being accomplished through the ongoing cooperation, commitment, communication and partnership in education between parents, students, staff and community members. The mission is being accomplished through exemplary staff performance, program diversity, measured student achievement of outcomes and cooperative decision making. At Kameyosek, we are a caring community working together to instill within children the desire to pursue excellence in all facets of their education. We believe that we provide quality education in a positive, safe and caring learning environment.
Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year. We are back in school with many new conditions and challenges that will be pushing us to adapt our environment to keep our children and staff as safe as possible during the global pandemic. With the restrictions put upon us over the past five months, we know the continued safety of all is still the most important factor facing us. We need to provide a safe and secure environment as we resume school.
The running of our school program will see many changes that we will all need to be aware of and adapt to. All families were sent information mid-August informing you of the many safety precautions that will be put in place to protect our students and staff. I hope that you are now aware of the efforts the staff at Kameyosek will make to ensure everyone’s safety, as much as possible. Over the first month, all staff and students will work at establishing the routines that will guide our actions and ensure safe conditions.
I hope that you and your child were able to continue with reading daily and were able to continue writing in a journal about your adventures over the summer. Basic math facts were another area that we had encouraged you to practice with your child, for five or ten minutes daily, to keep the information logged into your child’s memory bank.
Students in most grades will use their agendas for regular communication between the family and the school. Please read the information included which will give you a better understanding of Kameyosek School. It is very important that you participate in the agenda use process with the children as this encourages organizational skills and enhances communication between us all. Thank you to our Kameyosek Parent Advisory Council for providing Agendas for our students.
Together, as a team we form the Golden Triangle of Support for our children. As the base, parents and teachers offer a strong foundation to the children at the apex of the triangle. Our consistent effort to support the children’s endeavors, academically and socially throughout the year, will ensure optimum success for all.
The School along with Kameyosek Parent Advisory Council will work together to keep our Kameyosek Community in regular communication about the policies and directions we will be planning this year. Many diverse ideas allow us to consider all alternatives before we embark on our journeys. SchoolZone is an integral and essential component for all families to keep in communication with the school about its activities and their child’s class information and performance.
Our Kameyosek Parent Advisory Council is very important because of all the activities they support and the assistance they provide to our school community on field trips both inside and outside the classroom. At Kameyosek each class participates in many field trips. Almost every trip we are in need of parent volunteers to meet the safety ratios for supervising and\or to assist in the facilitation of the skills being focused on which vary depending on the event.
The work of our Kameyosek Parent Advisory Council and the support they provide from the casino fundraiser and other activities has allowed our families to have first rate technology, numerous additional support resources for science, math, phys-ed, music and for our library and kindergarten rooms.
The school will have almost 250 children this year and I would like to welcome our new families that will begin with us in September 2020.
If you have any questions, concerns or bouquets you wish to share with us please do not hesitate to contact the school at 780 462-8724. We can also be contacted through email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Our website is kameyosek.epsb.ca. Information from our handbook can be obtained from this site.
I am looking forward to another good year of working together with our parents to ensure the success of the children.
