2018/2019 school year. 27 Projected Kindergarten children for 2019/2020 that we know of so far. Projected enrolment for the 2018/2019 is around 240 students. School Programs:

Watrous Elementary School offers a K through 7 program that involves a wide number of academic and extra-curricular programs. Full range of regular academic courses as well as modified and alternate courses as required Kindergarten screening for early intervention Multifaceted literacy program In Motion and Physical Education program Practical and applied arts survey courses in the area of home economics, industrial arts and technological literacy Individual curriculum adaptations for students with focus on student success Band offered to students in grades 5 - 7 Inclusion WES believes that inclusionary practices are the most desirable. We believe that students can and do learn best in a regular classroom setting under the guidance of a classroom teacher, however, we do acknowledge that in some instances students may benefit from small group or even one on one instruction. Fundamentally, we believe that all children grow and develop, academically and socially and that it is our responsibility to provide

the necessary support and structures to enable all of our students to grow. School Services Personal Counseling supports are also available at WES to students if required. A team approach, which includes the parents, school administration, trained counselors and the students, is used. Outside Services within WES Occupational Therapy/Sensory Room We utilize the services of an occupational therapist to assist us in programming a range of physical activities to support student learning in and out of the classroom. The OT will also provide programming for students with physical or mobility challenges. In the past this facility has been of great importance when programming for handicapped students. We also utilize the room and associated equipment and activities to support the learning of a number

of special needs students who may be identified as ADHD, FAE/FAS or face a variety of other challenges. Speech, Language and Social Skills Development We are fortunate to have staff dedicated to the support of speech and language development in students who have been identified as needing support in this area. Our team of Educational Assistants and Resource Teacher work closely with our Speech and Language Pathologist to develop and implement programming to further children in this area. We also have staff dedicated to delivering a social skills program to a number of students who have been identified as needing support in this area. The targeted program addresses many of the skills that we often take for granted. Extra-curricular Program Watrous Elementary School offers a rich variety of extra-curricular opportunities ranging from sports to drama to fine arts. We support student leadership and involvement and believe that many outside of the classroom opportunities help us to meet our goals of student engagement and satisfaction.

These include: Sports:

Volleyball Basketball Badminton Track and field Soccer Curling Cross Country Student Representative Council Intramurals Milk Program volunteers

Nutrition Positive School School/community programs like our food bank drives throughout the year Christmas program Remembrance Day program Terry Fox Run Safety Patrol Choir Recess Guardians LEARNING IMPROVEMENT PLAN Our SCC assists with the implementing of our school LIP. They are informed of the academic goals for the school and provide support through funding and programming within all of the school goals. Staff and SCC collaborate on the LIP, using current data. The SCC promotes and publicly supports the LIP in the community and at times in the school, while the staff engages the students at the school daily.
