As part of the larger Program Department, the focus of the Elementary Program Team is to support elementary educators, students and their families in the areas of assessment and instruction, aimed at increasing student well-being, learning and achievement. A key aspect of the work of the Program Department is assisting all educators and learners to understand curriculum through the lens of a Catholic worldview.
Curriculum instruction is based on the program and policy documents of the
Ontario Elementary Curriculum.
Assessment, Evaluation and Reporting are guided by the Ministry of Education policy document Growing Success, 2010.
Guided by the precepts of our Faith, and by research into successful practices, the Elementary Program Team strives to provide guidance to administrators, teachers and families so that effective programming is put in place that responds to the needs of all students, as appropriate.
Student well-being is the foundation to all that we do. With this in mind, support is available for all areas of the elementary program including: Religious and Family Life Education, Early Learning, Literacy and Mathematical Literacy including financial literacy, The Arts, Social Studies, History and Geography, Science and Technology, Physical and Health Education.
The Elementary Program Team also works to support all other areas of programming to ensure that 'the whole child' is recognized, and that the gifts of all are treasured as each learner journeys towards the
Ontario Catholic School Graduate Expectations. For more information about Elementary Program, contact the Program Department at 905-890-0708 ext. 24430 or 24342.
