Dear Students, Parents, Guardians and Community Members,
Welcome to the 2014-2015 school year! I am excited to be the new principal of Edith Rogers School and I look forward to working with this community. Edith Rogers is a fantastic school with a vibrant culturally diverse community and a dedicated staff. We encourage our students to be kind and helpful toward others and to come to school prepared every day to learn to the best of their ability. We are committed to providing a safe and inclusive learning environment where student diversity is recognized and celebrated.
At Edith Rogers School, students will be provided with a variety of learning opportunities and authentic learning tasks in an effort to realize their full potential. We are committed to helping students achieve their full potential and recognize that they have a responsibility to care for themselves, others and our respective communities. We will do our very best to make sure your child grows academically, socially and emotionally so that they can transform from the learners of today into the leaders of tomorrow.
Edith Rogers is a Leader in Me School. Based on the book, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Teens®, The Leader in Me is a whole-school transformation model that helps to improve performance of all our programs. It produces transformational results such as higher academic achievement, enhanced student commitment, and increased engagement among teachers and parents. The Leader in Me equips students with the self-confidence and skills they need to thrive as a 21st century learner. Learning the 7 Habits helps our students develop many skills: leadership, accountability, initiative, creativity, goal-setting, cross-cultural skills, problem-solving, and effective communication.
The staff at Edith Rogers School is continually involved in job embedded professional development. Our staff works collaborative on a weekly basis with each other as well as other staff within the J.Percy Page School catchment. Our teachers are constantly trying to improve their own instructional practice in an effort to create a diverse and rewarding classroom experience.
Edith Rogers is a community school that places great value on creating positive relationships with our parent community. Throughout the school year we have many opportunities for our families to participate in meetings, celebrations, after school activities and special days at school. Parents and students will receive these communications through SchoolZone, and may also follow us on Twitter, @ERSchool.
If you have any questions, concerns or bouquets you wish to share with us please do not hesitate to contact the school at 780-462-3310. We can also be contacted through email at Edithrogers@epsb.ca.
Once again, on behalf of our entire staff, I welcome you to Edith Rogers School.
