Rocky Mountain School District
Learning Leadership Report
We learn in Rocky Mountain School District. All of us. We learn so that our students grow and experience greater success every day.
We learn the Core Competencies of Thinking, Communication, and Social and Personal competencies. Students develop curricular competencies in literacy and numeracy and the big ideas of content areas; educators continuously learn to improve pedagogy.
We learn so that each day in Rocky Mountain School District brings us closer to every student graduating with dignity, purpose, and options.
The Learning Leadership Report is a celebration of that learning. We hope you enjoy reading it and invite you to contribute your stories, ideas, and upcoming events and opportunities as a member of the learning community of Rocky Mountain School District.
Our students experience environmental, outdoor and community based learning.
Our learning community is research based and collaborative.
Our communication results in common understanding.
We care deeply, act wisely and find joy in each day.
The Board has set District Directions for 2013-2018. We will organize the Learning Leadership Report this year around these directions to share how we are bringing them to life across the district.
Our learning is empowered by technology.
Our students and staff feel safe, connected and valued.
What are the ways you are already engaged in the work captured by these directions?
What are the possibilities for future work inspired by these directions?
Our District Directions 2018 represent the hopes, dreams, and ideas
of many staff, parents, community members, and students who contributed to a Thoughtstream process, multi-partner dialogue, and Board review to uncover these 5 key themes to guide our work and shape our culture.
Thank you Iris Trask
Golden Secondary Students Observe Day of Mourning: BC Schools Project
The Day of Mourning, held Friday, April 27 this year, is a day to reflect on those we’ve lost and to inform young workers of our commitment to creating safer workplaces for everyone.
Since 1991, when Parliament passed the Mourning Day Act, The National Day of Mourning has been an officially recognized event jointly endorsed by government, labour and employers.
This year, a partnership of the BC Federation of Labour, BC Labour Heritage Centre, BC Principals’ and Vice-Principals’ Association, BC School Trustees’ Association, BC Teachers’ Federation, CUPE BC and WorkSafe BC has taken an important step to actively encourage more schools to participate in the Day of Mourning.
See a full project description here.
Golden Secondary registered with Leadership class students created a large display about the Day of Mourning, students read the PA announcements each day for a week, and some teachers, including Planning 10, used materials from the project. Administration encouraged all teachers to talk to their students about Young Worker Safety.
Curious about the history of the Day of Mourning?

Edgewater Strong-Start Program Has Fieldtrip to the K room
On April 18 the Strong-Start families visited the EES kindergarten classroom. The K students were paired up with a Strong-start family and they read books to the younger ones. Everyone really enjoyed their time together. It was exciting to witness the enthusiasm and anticipation of all the K students prior to the visit. The few K’s that normally are not excited about reading were eager to participate. It was a lovely afternoon. The collaborative classroom was so successful that there is plans for additional events in the coming weeks. Thanks to Joanne Steedman (EES K Teacher) and Chrissy Guest (WZ Strong-start facilitator) for making this happen.
Thank you Darryl Turner
On Saturday March 3rd, the DTSS Chef Training students volunteered at Coffee Fest, at the Invermere Community Hall to share their freshly baked bread, coffee shaped buns, and treats all baked in their new bread oven. Last year, the students raised money for their new bread oven at coffee fest so we wanted to return to share the products that were the result of their labour. We had a great time sharing our baked items and thanking the community for their support of the DTSS Chef Training program.

Remembrance Day Poster & Literary Awards
EES is very honored to have such a great relationship with our Edgewater Legion local #199. Over the course of the year the Legion is very visible at EES. Of course, we work collaboratively to host the Remembrance Day assembly at EES. We also participate in the annual Remembrance Day Poster & Literary Contest. And, the Legion hosts our EES students and staff for an annual Xmas Dinner that last week of school in December. It truly does take a whole community to raise a child.

Elder Teachings at Eileen Madson Primary School EMP
In April, Eileen Madson Primary School welcomed two Shuswap Elders: Laverna and Basil Stevens. The Elders spoke about local First Nations plants, how they were used and why they traded with other communities. The Elders brought in some samples for the students to observe, touch and smell. They described each plant and also shared knowledge of how the plants could be used (as tea, flavoring in cooking, or for medicinal purposes). Laverna also shared stories of her past and how plants played a role in her interaction with the local environment. It was a memorable and meaningful learning experience for all, considering it was also around the time our students were learning about Earth Day.
Thank you Jen Tagg
Thank you to Tisha Tardif, our Aboriginal Support Worker, for organizing!
Art From the Heart
Climate Change: Little Hands Big Difference
From April 3 to 28 Pynelogs Cultural Centre and Art Gallery in Invermere was filled with more than 700 pieces of Art contributed by the talented K-7 students of the Columbia Valley. This year's theme was "Climate Change: Little Hands Big Difference."
A few thoughts from the show's lead teacher Paulina Stankovski:
"I think the theme of the show was interpreted in a very empowering manner. Everyone, no matter how big or small can make a positive difference. "
"When talking about climate change. we were very cognizant of the age group. The goal was to empower, rather than scare students. In grade 5/6, we talked a lot about how we use our natural resources, conservation and how we can be stewards of the environment. Students learned a lot about the energy and effort it takes to produce products, such as paper or food and how it is everyone's responsibility to minimize waste. In grade 7, we talked a lot about adaptations to climate change. Students invited a local bee keeper who spoke to us about the process of honey production and the effect of climate change on bees, and also innovations put in place to protect the bees. We have also studied global adaptations, such as floating schools in Bangladesh (built in response to frequent flooding)."
"There was a lot of conversation among the teachers about the theme of the show. It is very relevant to curriculum strands across all levels. As important as it is for students to understand the facts around climate change, our job as educators is always to empower students and hi- light innovations. adaptations, human resilience and ability to create solutions for problems."
"The theme was interpreted in many different ways in the classroom. We conversed in small and large groups, penned in our journals, wrote plays and created amazing art. The benefit of creating Art is that it is open to interpretation and allows for individual creativity and expression."
"As a teacher, I loved the theme of the show and continue to explore it in my classroom. It is a relatable topic which is affecting us all, and will require creative solutions from our future generations."
We extend a sincere thank you to Paulina Stankovski, Jami Scheffer, and Natalie Ruby for all your hard work to make this possible for our students and community

Selkirk Art Club Field Trip
Nineteen Selkirk Art Club students from all grades traveled to Calgary April 20th for a jam packed weekend of Art experiences. Stops included a tour of the Alberta College of Art and Design, a shopping trip to Mona Lisa Art Supplies and a visit to the Glenbow Museum. Students were able to see artist studios and gain experience in looking at and analyzing art. The trip was a huge success and will hopefully happen again in the future.
Take Me Outside /Earth Day activities at Lady Grey
Classes at Lady Grey have been involved in a number of outdoor activities this month.
Mme Lambert and Mme Rebecka’s classes participated in a Walk for Water organized by teacher-librarian Mrs. Divall. This walk was one of the activities planned in conjunction with reading the book, A Long Walk for Water, a moving tale based on a true story of two youngsters in Sudan whose lives intersect. One of the characters has two incredibly long trips for water each day. Lady Grey students journeyed to our rivers confluence with empty containers and carried collected water back to school. They subsequently reflected on the reality of such a challenge.
All classes at Lady Grey joined little buddies from Alexander Park to do an Earth Day clean-up throughout the town of Golden on April 23rd in celebration of Earth Day. The buddies culminated the day with some shared activities before returning to school.
We thank one of our parents, Amy Barrett, for the photos.
Thank you Laurie MacDougall
2018 Pitch-In Canada Week
Selkirk Students joined in the City of Kimberley’s Pitch-In Canada Week. This is an environmental improvement project.
Thank you Vickie Tipper
Once again EES students supported Earth day by participating in our annual roadside clean-up. Each of the six classrooms at EES split up the communities of Edgewater and Radium and did their best to clean them up. The students enjoyed a wonderful day of sunshine and further learned about preserving our wonderful surroundings.

Teacher Librarian Collaboration in Golden (Collaborative Grant #10)
Golden Secondary – Angela Stott, Tanya Hobbs
Lady Grey Elementary School – Kristine Divall
Alexander Park Elementary School – Fiona Smith
Nicholson Elementary School – Tracey Lillies
Teacher librarians and teachers in the library in the Golden zone gathered 4 times so far this school year (two times after school hours and twice using release time provided through this grant). The plan is to meet at least twice more before school is out for summer.
We spent time learning about and discussing the various roles that a teacher librarian plays in the school:
· literacy lead,
· digital literacy lead/advocate,
· curriculum co-planner,
· collaborative partner
· developing, creating, sustaining, advocating for a joy of reading
· inquiry based learning lead/collaborator,
· evaluating and attaining learning resources which are the best fit for students
We also spent time learning about:
· collection development and “rigorous” weeding
· importance of TL role as instructional leader/collaborator
· Discussion, problem solving re. how to further develop understanding of TL role within our respective schools – most schools have been without a trained TL for so long that they have lost sight of the teaching and learning possibilities present when a trained TL is in a school
· developing understanding of the critical connection between a trained teacher librarian and school achievement and how to keep moving student achievement forward

In general, this collaboration time allowed us to develop a better understanding of our roles within our schools and how to continue to work towards improving student learning. The collaborative community created via this grant provided us with much needed support and inspiring professional development.
Thank you Tanya Hobbs
Classroom Creature at Martin Morigeau Elementary
This is one of the ideas shared as part of the district Kindergarten/Grade 1 learning community:
Murphy the cat wrote a letter to our Kindergarten/Grade One class at Martin Morigeau Elementary School saying he was moving into the room. He wanted to know more about all of us and he would write back to anyone who wrote to him. Not everyone was hooked but it’s been worth it for those who were. I made a little mailbox and not a day goes by without letters. One little boy’s goal was to be able to write to Murphy all by himself. When Murphy told them he could read any writing no matter how things were spelled, things changed....
I’ll start right away in September and think I can altogether eliminate, “How do I spell...?”
Murphy even gets invitations to play outside for recess! He’s a hit!
Thank you Deanna Powell
Science Fair 2018 at Nicholson Elementary
Nicholson Elementary had a great turn out for our first Science Fair in a long time! The fair, held April 13, started as an idea put into our leadership suggestion box, and then went to our Student Lighthouse Team (SLT), which acts as an organizer and "clearing house" for student ideas. Our SLT, formed as part of our organization as a Leader in Me school, is composed of 25 K-7 students. That is more than a quarter of our student population! The SLT planned the fair, created criteria for entry and display, organized the gymnasium, arranged for treats and coffee for our grown up guests (thanks to our Breakfast Leaders for baking), and set up a way for parents to provide feedback to students. The NES Science Fair is another example of positive student leadership at Nicholson Elementary. Great job students!
Thank you Bob Wilson
Thank you Meg Baker
Buddy Reading with a Career Connection
The students in Careers 9 at Selkirk Secondary last term created works of children’s literature related to a career of their choice. They had to use creativity and imagination to create a story that would be developmentally appropriate for a primary student to understand. Students worked very hard both writing and illustrating their career books. The class brought their books to Marysville and read their books to Mrs. Kraljic’s grade one/two class as well as Mrs. Bohn’s grade one class. The students felt very nostalgic roaming the halls of Marysville and did an amazing job working with the primary students. Thank you to everyone that participated in this amazing day!
New Equipment for DTSS Foods Program
The new elements have been used for the past few weeks in our Foods class and have been very much appreciated. Our SD#6 maintenance team did a wonderful job updating our kitchen classroom with these great elements that work like a dream.
Pictured are the David Thompson Secondary Junior Foods program students making Fresh pizza sauce and dough for their pizza pocket food lab. It is so nice to have all of the students working on superior appliances so the students can focus on their cooking and learning, without being limited by the equipment.
Thanks again to everyone who helped us receive these wonderful additions to the Foods program at DTSS.
Here’s some photos of Brittney McLean, MacKenzie McLean, and Garett Symes at the Skills BC competition at COTR. Garett placed 3rd in carpentry, Brittney placed 4th in carpentry, MacKenzie placed 2nd in cabinetry. Carpentry competitors had to build a sawhorse with compound angles and dado joints for the legs. Cabinetry competitors had to build a single person bench with mortice and tenon joinery cut with the table saw.
Thank you Ryan Treber

Ministry Capacity Building Initiative to Support District Planning for Student Success
People who have been connected to Rocky Mountain School District for a while will likely be familiar with the story of our efforts to create a culture of evidence-based decision making and the gains and setbacks we have experienced with our data systems as we moved from BCeSIS to MyEd BC.
The Ministry Framework for Enhancing Student Learning 's Cohesive Data and Reporting Systems Capacity Building Initiative is trying to help. We have been working with a Ministry team toward having the MyEd Analytics tool fully developed and functional to provide schools with real-time access to the data they enter into MyEd. Schools will be able to see the information for their students displayed in a number of reports with graphs and lists and the ability to filter by various factors and groups. The reports will include basic mark distribution, missing marks, start of year report for teachers, and the SD 6 On Track Score (a combined measure looking at achievement in Language Arts and Math, and attendance). These are examples of the kinds of reports that can be provided by the Ministry, shared between districts as templates, and adapted by districts to meet their unique needs.
At the MyEd BC Academy in Richmond on May 7 a demonstration of the SD 6 requested reports was a huge step forward for the future of the analytics tool by proving that it can deliver what districts need. There are some remaining issues to resolve to clean up the report formats, ensure the data comes into into the system correctly from MyEd, and establish the security and permissions for school-level access. We are pleased to report that this work is underway. Watch for more information coming soon!
We extend our sincere thanks to Dean Goodman for his leadership on the Framework Initiative. We also acknowledge the work and leadership of Sally Barton, Eleanor Liddy, and Andrew Macauley to move MyEducation Analytics forward.
Industry Quality Equipment for Chef Training Program
The oven is here! The Chef Training program at David Thompson Secondary School is delighted to announce that their brand new, two tiered, stone deck oven has arrived.
For the past five years the DTSS Chef Training program has been fundraising for a new oven for our cafeteria program. Our program makes an effort to maintain and exceed our BC Food Guidelines for Healthy Schools, by creating freshly made, locally sourced, quality foods for our students, so we have extended this philosophy and practice into our bread making.
Having this new oven will allow our students to practice their cooking and baking skills in an oven reflective of what they would use in the industry, and at a superior quality. Troubleshooting traditional bread making techniques with modern appliances for a creative bread fusion. This new oven bakes on stone decks with a round and even heat that allows us to bake with confident consistency. But not only for bread and pizza, this oven also has a deck tall enough to roast our 25lb turkeys throughout the year.
I am so proud of our students for the hard work they have dedicated to fundraising for the oven, but equally thankful for and humbled by the support of our local community. Combined with our own fundraising, the Chef Training program received many generous donations from local individuals, groups and organizations. This past fall, a grant from the Ministry of Education supporting trades initiatives in School District #6, afforded us the opportunity to truly make this goal a reality, and it arrived early January.
I would like to extend my deepest and sincerest thanks to all of whom have supported our efforts in achieving this amazing oven. Our community, parents, students, staff, local businesses and industry, School District #6, and the Ministry of Education have contributed greatly to our goal.
The Chef Training program is a valuable member of DTSS and our local community, and this oven will continue to encourage our students to shine bright. With our new oven heating the way, artisan-style rye wheat buns, sourdough loaves and even pita bread, all baked by our Chef Training students, will continue to make their way to the students and staff of DTSS this winter and in the future. Thank you for your continued support of our program, our students and our quest for great bread.

Statement on Mental Health Week and Child and Youth Mental Health Day
Judy Darcy, Minister of Mental Health and Addictions; Katrine Conroy, Minister of Children and Family Development; and Rob Fleming, Minister of Education, have released the following statement in recognition of Mental Health Week, from May 7 to 13, 2018, and Child and Youth Mental Health Day on May 7, 2018:
“At any given time, one in five Canadians is dealing with mental-health issues, and if we go family by family, almost everyone experiences mental illness some time. Child and Youth Mental Health Day and Mental Health Week are an important time for all British Columbians to come together and spread awareness about how mental health affects us all, and give this important day and week the heartfelt recognition that it deserves.
“This year’s National Child and Youth Mental Health Day is about creating a safe space for children, youth and adults to have courageous conversations about mental health. For Mental Health Week, British Columbians and Canadians are being called on to speak out, to #GetLoud on social media and in the community about what mental health means to you, and the people you care about. Both awareness events are focused on helping combat the stigma around mental health, so that everyone feels comfortable asking for help.
“Our government recognizes that supporting people’s mental health is just as important as supporting their physical health, at every stage of life. Premier John Horgan created the new Ministry of Mental Health and Addictions – the first of its kind in Canada – so there is one person in cabinet, and one ministry in government, focused solely on how we can improve mental-health and addictions services and supports for all British Columbians.
“At any one time in B.C., approximately 84,000 children and youth, aged four to 17 years have a mental-health disorder. Only about one-third of them connect with the community-based supports and services they need. We know that early intervention and prevention are key to giving our children and youth the best start possible in life, so we must make sure young people feel comfortable asking for help. We must also make sure the mental-health services and supports they need are there, when and where they need them.
“To this end, we are working to create a seamless system of mental-health and addictions care, where people can ask once and get help fast. We are developing a comprehensive mental-health and addictions strategy across government, focused on early intervention and prevention, and treatment and recovery.
“The Ministry of Education is addressing early intervention and prevention in schools by adding more supports, so students can begin to discuss mental-health challenges with their teachers or counsellors as soon as these issues develop. The ministry is also holding an inaugural School Community Mental Health Conference, on May 10 and 11, 2018, in Richmond. This conference is designed to build the capacity of regional school-community teams to support students' mental health. Information gathered at the conference will help inform the development of a school-based mental-health action plan that will be part of a comprehensive cross-government mental-health strategy that is focused on improving access, early intervention and prevention, and youth mental health.
“We are also expanding the network of Foundry Youth centres throughout the province. These centres are one-stop-shops that provide youth with health-care, mental-health and substance-use services, as well as social supports, under one roof, in a safe and judgment-free environment.
“We have a significant amount of work to do, to remove the stigma that keeps people from sharing the struggles they are facing, and from seeking the help they need and deserve.
“We are working to bring down the walls of silence, and raise awareness about the negative impact of stigma, but we cannot do it alone. British Columbians can all play a part in eliminating stigma through our actions and words, so #GetLoud and have caring conversations with your friends and loved ones.
“We are all affected by mental-health challenges in some way. It could be your voice, your empathy and your kindness that make all the difference in someone’s life, and help set the stage for their healing journey.”
BC's New Grade 10 Curriculum Available
BC's new Grade 10 curriculum is finalized and available in PDF and Word on the Curriculum website. HTML versions will be available by June 29, 2018. Watch for Grade 10 French translations and Grade 11 and 12 curriculum, which will be posted as it is completed. All will be posted by June 29, 2018. Grade 11-12 French translations will be posted by early September 2018.
Graduation assessments are changing to align with the new curriculum. As part of the updated graduation requirements, students in the 2018 Graduation Program will have to complete two provincial assessments. They will focus on the demonstration and application of numeracy and literacy.
The Numeracy Assessment will be implemented in the 2017/18 school year.
The Literacy Assessment will be implemented in the 2019/20 school year.
The Language Arts 12 exams will be phased out as the Literacy Assessment is introduced. Until the Literacy Assessment is fully implemented in the 2019/20 school year, the Language Arts 12 exam will remain in place and will continue to be 40% of the final, blended mark for Language Arts 12 courses.
Students graduating in the 2018/19 school year will take a Language Arts 12 course and associated provincial exam to satisfy graduation requirements for the 2018 Graduation Program.
Learn more about the new Graduation Assessments.
