Welcome to Our Saviour School’s Pre-K! At Our Saviour Pre-K, your child will be given the opportunity to grow academically, socially, emotionally, and spiritually through developmentally appropriate activities in a safe learning environment.
IMPORTANT PRE-K INFORMATION: 1. It is our policy that children must be 3 or 4 years old, respectively, by September 1 of the school year. 2. Children must be toilet trained in order to enroll in the program. 3. A health physical, within the past year, including lead screening, is required for each child enrolling in the program. These are due by October 15. Please notify the school and teacher if your child has any allergies. 4. Rest Time occurs for any full-day Pre-K student. Each child is to bring to school (to keep at school) a small blanket and a small stuffed animal/”lovie”. No pillows or sleeping bags, please!
Pre-K is a time for students to learn how to take turns, listen to their teachers, and work with others. While we do expect students to always do their best, we do not expect perfection. If a student is having difficulty with classroom rules or behavior, he/she will be given several verbal reminders. If the behavior continues, he/she will be removed from the situation, given a verbal correction, and a reflection time. We will always follow up by talking about the classroom rules and discuss better choices for next time. Students in the 4-year-old class will use a system of colors to help monitor classroom behavior. This system will be introduced and practiced with students as part of our beginning of the year routine. More information about this system will be sent home at a later date.
K-8TH GRADE INFORMATION
Welcome to Our Saviour School! Our focus at Our Saviour School is “student success”, with our faculty diligently working towards Our Saviour School becoming a Professional Learning Community. Your child(ren) will be given the opportunity to grow academically, socially, emotionally, and spiritually through classroom and extracurricular activities.
Our Saviour School strives to give our students the best academic setting to help them grow. Our faculty are being trained by the Solutions Tree approach to Professional Learning Communities. This model focuses on learning rather than teaching and encourages collaboration on matters related to learning. This model holds team members accountable to results that fuel continual improvement. While we move forward with our PLC initiative, the faculty at Our Saviour School continue to work to enhance our curriculum and student success by weekly PLC meetings.
Our ultimate goals for Our Saviour School becoming a PLC include:
Educators work in collaborative teams and take collective responsibility for student learning rather than working in isolation (MAP, Iowa, CFA)
Collaborative teams implement a guaranteed and viable curriculum, unit by unit
Guaranteed – Does not matter who the teacher is – all students will leave with the same knowledge and skill
Viable – The pace of the curriculum is doable.
Educators use the results of common assessment to:
Improve their individual practice
Build their team’s capacity to achieve its goals
Intervene/enrich on behalf of students rather than teachers working in isolation
The school provides a systematic process for intervention and enrichment
We are committed to creating a Professional Learning Community at Our Saviour School through the hard work and diligence of our faculty!
