Enhanced Morning Announcements
With a focus on the district's strategic priorities (and in particular numbers 1, 2, 4 and 5),
#1 - Inspired Learners
#2 - Equity and Inclusion
#3 - Optimized Facilities and Technology
#4 - A Progressive Workplace
#5 - A Connected Learning Community
we worked hard this year to communicate learning experiences, celebrations, and inspirational moments of equity and inclusion with our students, staff and the community via our morning announcements and our Week at a Glance Newsletters (emailed home and posted to our website).
In addition to keeping everyone informed and up to date about school events and activities, we added in learning bites and silver linings. These included information about the following and much more:
- Sikh Heritage Month
- The National Day for Truth and Reconciliation
- Remembrance Day
- The Staff vs Student Basketball Game
- Support for Ukraine
- Earth Day
- Asian Heritage Month
- The National Day of Mourning
- Canadian Jewish Heritage Month
- May the Fourth Day
- Artists in Residence Opportunities
- Pride Month
- Pink Shirt Day
We are thrilled with the information, questions, support, wonderings and learning that students, families and staff brought forward about many of these topics so that we can continue to learn more.
We are also excited to use the district's new Equity Diversity and Inclusion Calendar of Events for 2022-2023 to continue to incorporate special days and celebrations into our daily life at Bridge with an additive approach to learning.
