Inglewood School provides a safe, nurturing, challenging learning environment and helps students to reach their full potential in their social, emotional and academic lives. We provide full-day Kindergarten and Balanced Literacy approaches for all students. Groupings consist of Kindergarten and Grades 1-6 with some combined classes. French as a Second Language is provided for Grades 4 to 6. Music is studied by all students.
Our focus is on literacy and numeracy, student self-assessment skills, and safety and positive behaviour. Students with special needs are included in all classrooms, and we collaborate with families and the Inclusive Learning Team to provide classroom supports, and Leveled Literacy intervention is also a critical piece provided for some students. Inglewood School leases space to an out-of-school care partner and to the 124 Street Youth Drop-in Society, and we partner with a large number of community organizations.
Inglewood is an APPLE school (Alberta Project Promoting active Living & healthy Eating) and our community goals are:
To develop health-promoting school environments where it is easy for children to make healthy choices.
To improve the eating habits and physical activity levels of students.
To reduce the risk for chronic disease by decreasing obesity and overweight among school children.
Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year at Inglewood School!
Inglewood School is an inviting and inclusive school community where diversity is celebrated and valued, and where relationships are nurtured. Emphasis is placed on creating an environment where students feel capable and connected. The goal is for each student to develop their learning and leadership potential taking them into high school and beyond. We practice the 7 Habits of Healthy children each and every day in all that we say and do.
In an effort to ensure all students are successful, staff use a differentiated approach to teaching. This approach includes thoughtful planning, strategic assessment of learning outcomes, and targeted, flexible instruction. Classroom teaching will be a blend of whole class, group, partner, and individual instruction. Students will be provided with multiple opportunities to make sense of ideas and information, practice new skills, and to demonstrate what they have learned.
Communication is key at Inglewood School and is a shared responsibility. Updates and information will be communicated mainly through the use of Schoolzone and students, parents and guardians are asked to check Schoolzone and student agendas regularly. Also, feel free to drop by the school office and introduce yourself, share your feedback or concerns and ask any questions.
I look forward to an amazing year with our students, families and the entire Inglewood Community!
