Arcola Community School is one of the ten lucky recipients for this year's Mosaic Extreme School Makeover Challenge!
Oh, Ms. Gwilliam, what will we do without you?! Ms. Gwilliam retires at the end of June. She has been our fearless and dedicated Community Coordinator for 11 years, responsible for writing grants, working with families, supporting students, partnering with our School Community Council... and truly everything in between. Even in a large school like ours, every single student (from our Pre-Kinders all the way up to our almost-finished Grade 8s) can tell you all about her!
With these cold winter days, it is so important that our Dragons are safe outdoors. Even a short time outside without proper winter wear can be dangerous. We would like to thank Amy Corteau and Dance Plus EP for the generous donations of winter items such as toques, mitts and scarfs!
- Smooth transition period - students who arrive at school with time to spare have the opportunity to settle into the classroom, prepare their materials and focus their minds on the lessons to come.
- Important information – a typical school day starts with announcements and introductions to new lessons and concepts.
