STAR Behaviour

STAR Behavior is a tool to help students make socially responsible decisions in a variety of situations. It was developed by staff and students. Our expectation is that all people in the building (students, staff, and visitors) apply the code at all times. STAR Matrix posters are displayed throughout the school. A French STAR Matrix poster is used in French Immersion classrooms. Students are taught the STAR matrix behaviours at the beginning of the year. Students receive positive recognition slips from staff in acknowledgement of appropriate behaviour. Teachers and administrators use the STAR matrix to discuss behaviour, consequences, and goals for improvement with individual students as needed.

Intensive Core French Program

Intensive Core French (ICF) is a second-language teaching approach in which students in Grade 6 receive 80% of instruction in French during the first half of the year, and 20% in the second half. This method increases their French skills significantly compared to the regular Core French.

This program is for students who will be entering Grade 6 next September and is only offered at Windebank Elementary.  Students continue the ICF program at Heritage Park Middle School in Grade 7, 8 and 9.

For more information about IF Program you can contact Mr. Bruno Tessier, IF teacher at Windebank Elem. School (604.826.2213) or Mr. Ghislain Michaud, French Coordinator for Mission Public Schools (604.826.6528) you can also check on Mission Public Schools website

Morrison Little Readers

Calling all 3 & 4 year olds!

Morrison Little Readers free drop-in sessions will begin in October in the library at Ecole Christine Morrison and will run every Friday that school is in session until late May.

Sessions start at 8:35am and will run for approximately 1 hour. We ask that a parent or guardian stays with their child and joins in the fun!

Our program will include story time, a craft activity involving fine motor skills, learning how to care for and share a borrowed book, and the opportunity to make new friends.

Morrison Little Readers is led by two wonderful parent volunteers - Monica Nguyen and Donna Prescott.  They hope that Morrison Little Readers will promote a love of books and help young children feel more comfortable with the transition to their future school. Please note that each week we can only accomodate 15 children per session. If you have any questions please call Mme Caine at (604) 826-6528.

Learning Assistance

The purpose of learning assistance is to provide a school-based service designed to support teachers and their students with learning difficulties.  In the learning assistance program, students are helped to develop effective learning strategies that will enable them to adapt to various learning situations and to feel successful in their ability to learn.

As all subjects are based on the ability to read and write, priority will be given to support in language arts.  Learning assistance will, whenever possible, be available for students from kindergarten to grade seven. However, preference will be given to Kindergarten, Grade One, Grade Two and Grade Three as part of the district's early success  program. By giving early intervention to primary students, hopefully learning difficulties will be reduced in the intermediate grades.

Kindergarten

Kindergarten is an important milestone in a child’s development. Children who enter kindergarten are generally inquisitive, imaginative, active, and eager to learn. They enjoy exploring, experimenting, playing, and working with others. At École Christine Morrison, we strive to provide kindergarten students with a safe stimulating environment. Our goal is the development of students’ self confidence in their ability to learn, In this way, in kindergarten we open the door to further learning in the school system. This year, we are excited to be offering full day kindergarten classes at our school.

Student Leadership Program

At École Christine Morrison senior students participate in our Student Leadership program. Students provide service to the school in a variety of areas including office monitors, primary classroom monitors, and concession monitors. Students learn important concepts such as responsibility, commitment, and service to others. Most importantly, students learn first hand that the many positive programs offered at this school are the result of hard work and collaborative teamwork.
