Although learning never stops, there are 194 days of learning in the 2015-16 calendar for the Simcoe County District School Board. Our fantastic team of resource teachers see so many amazing things across the county, we are going to use this space to document and share some of them with the world!
Post 194 is a thank you and a reminder. The thank you -
Thank you to all of you out there in SCDSB who tried something new this year. By "all of you" I mean all of you - from the classroom to the boardroom - students, parents, educators, administrators, community members, support staff, facilities, human resources, operations, budget, purchasing, communications, information technology services, health and safety, corporate risk, student services, senior admin and trustees - to all of you who took a risk, questioned the status quo and tried something new to make things better for students and for each other. Thanks!
The reminder -
This is a learning organization. It has to be. Every member of the SCDSB community has a role to play in supporting learning. Sometimes, the further away we get from the student desk, the easier it is to forget our ultimate purpose. We all have roles, responsibilities and guidelines, but we can't mistake them for our purpose. These roles, responsibilities and guidelines are all means to an end, all in service of learning and well-being for all.
Have a great summer.
Take some time to look back on all the learning documented and celebrated here on SCDSB's 194 Days of Learning Blog. Special thanks to everyone who contributed this year!
