Principal's Message

Welcome et Bienvenue!

 

We strive to meet the needs of all children by using a whole child approach. The ‘Whole Child’ approach is an effort to transition from a focus on academic achievement to one that promotes the long-term development and success of all children under our care.

One of the foundations that will help to bolster this growth is continued development of a sense of belonging for all through our House Teams program. Each student and staff member belong to a team for the length of their time at Edwards and beyond. This program will go hand in hand with the Positive Behavior Intervention System (PBIS) that teaches students that:

- We belong / Nous appartenons
- We care / Nous nous sommes attentionés 
- We do our best / Nous faisons de notre mieux
- We are independent / Nous sommes indépendants

Our PBIS Matrix comes from thr Circle of Courage that is the foundation of our school’s character-building program. Our school recognizes the importance and the desire of all children to feel like they belong and are respected in their school community. All children have the desire to be loved and find a place where they fit in. At École Edwards we value each child, and it is so important for students to feel like they have a supportive community around them at school. This strong sense of community will give our students and staff a sense of belonging in the class with their peers, on the playground and in their school community.

We are proud to be a bilingual school and to offer quality programming in English and French. Our staff work together to ensure students are supported in both languages in all subject areas including literacy, numeracy, and social-emotional well-being. At Edwards, our whole child approach ensures that each student is healthy, safe, engaged, supported, and challenged, we believe that this sets the standard for comprehensive, sustainable school improvement and provides for long-term student success.
