WITHIN AND BEYOND THE CLASSROOM
Academic and character education programs are our foundation. Authentic assessment practices focus on curricular outcomes. We support our programs by:
• supplementing our classroom reading program with a home reading program in early grades
• embedding a variety of computer applications and SMART Board instructional technology into the
Curriculum; one to one chromebook/ iPad technology
In addition to core courses, we offer programming to meet the individual needs of our students. Examples include:
• Information Processing, Robotics, Drama, Model Building, Hockey Skills, Media and Foods Sciences courses, dance
• field trips and sporting activities
• student and staff involvement with local 4-H clubs and community recreation and events
Many parents and community members are involved in the Sangudo School Council and support community
interaction with school and teaching staff .
