Welcome

Welcome to Prince Charles School!

We look forward to building a warm, nurturing and respectful relationship between home and school. We invite you to be an active part of our school community.  It is only as a team working together that we can accomplish all that we dream for our children.

The Code of the Golden Feather is the foundation of our community.  We practice Respect, Humility, Honesty and Integrity each and every day in all that we say and do. We are also a Leader In Me School and support all of our students to be leaders.  Staff strive to support each child to find and develop his or her strengths to be positive change agents in their school, their family, and their community.

Principal's Message

Dear Parents/Guardians,

Welcome to Prince Charles School!  

Our theme for the 2015-2016 school year is:

“Grit + Perseverance = Life-Long Success" (Habit 2 – Begin with the End in Mind)

At the beginning of the year we always focus time in reviewing and setting routines and high expectations with our students and of course our parents.  Starting the year with open communication will get us off to a great start.  

Building positive partnerships between the school and our families directly impacts how successful our students will be – academically and socially.  We know that all children learn differently and that they bring many learning strengths to the classroom.  In developing your child’s bright future, PC staff will be striving to build on your child’s strengths while supporting them to stretch and develop new skills that will guide them in the 21st Century.  We cannot do this work on our own - our students continued success relies heavily on parents supporting their children, encouraging them to do daily home reading and talking to them about what they are learning!  (Habit 4 – Think Win-Win)

We will continue to follow the Code of the Golden Feather – treating others with Respect, acting with Integrity and Humility and being Honest. Our Positive Behavior Program is directly linked to the Code of the Golden Feather.  It provides the foundation for student behavior.  We strongly believe that all students are capable of following the Code of the Golden Feather and being role models to their peers! Please read the school handbook in your child’s student agenda.

We strongly encourage parents to connect with their child’s teacher and bus driver.  The strength of these relationships is what makes our school a great place to be!

It is critical that the office have up-to-date contact and emergency information.

Sincerely,

Judy Toews
