October 2019 Note...


For those of you who don’t know I’m Leslie Paul and my position is Elementary Resource Teacher. My main responsibility as resource support is to work collaboratively with classroom teachers, parents, administration and other service providers to assist in program planning to meet student needs.  In September some returning students have begun to receive resource support daily. We are also in the process of scheduling Program planning meetings to support our students and their needs. I am looking forward to meeting parents/guardians during these program-planning meetings throughout the school year. I have also been busy administering the Test of Preschool Literacy (TOPEL) to the Primary students for the Martin Family Initiative (MFI). 

During the month of October I will be supporting the grades 1 to 3 teachers in administering a student motivation questionnaire for MFI and administering student assessments based on Program planning meetings. I would encourage parents/guardians to communicate with their child’s classroom teacher any concerns they may have pertaining to their child’s school success. Parents/Guardians and classroom teachers can refer a child for program planning to assist in identifying the child’s strengths and needs. 

If you have any questions or concerns pertaining to the program planning process or elementary resource, please feel free to contact me at the school.

Wela’lin/Thank you, Ms. Leslie Paul
