Learning Commons

Has your child mentioned “Learning Commons”? 

If so they are referring to the learning environment in the Library that is new this year at GSMS.   Mrs. Killen and Mrs. Coleman spend part of their teaching time each day in the Learning Commons.   Students work individually or in small groups with the support of the Learning Commons teacher in coordination with their classroom teacher.  It is an alternate learning space and is supportive of a variety of student needs. 

If you have questions or would like more information about Learning Commons please speak to your child’s teacher or Mrs. Coleman.

Parent Resource Loan Program

Griffiths-Scott School has a resource library for Parents.   Currently there are over 40 books/videos available for parents to sign out though they are working together to increase this library with resources parents may need. The resources currently cover a variety of topics including books on Bullying, Empowering girls, Understanding how your child learns, Dealing with challenging behaviors etc.

If parents would like to borrow the books a sign out binder is located in the counselling hall.  Parents are encouraged to come and browse at their leisure; the only requirement is that parents try to take a maximum of two weeks with each resource to ensure that other parents have access to the resources they need in a timely manner.
