Dear Parents and Students:

I’m thrilled to continue to serve as Principal of Osoyoos Elementary School. Each year I look forward to working with the dedicated, hard-working, professional staff, the Osoyoos children and families and the many educational partners that support our learning community. As well, I look forward to continuing to learn more about OSE’s culture and traditions and seek to build positive relationships with parents and community members.

In the 2017/18 school year we will continue to provide a strong educational program with specific attention to Literacy, Numeracy and Social Emotional Learning. We will also nurture the development of resiliency, self-regulation, social skills and social responsibility through programs such as MindUP, Roots of Empathy, and Community Service, to name a few.

This year’s Student Achievement Plan will focus on three inquiry question:
  • If we provide Social Emotional Learning (SEL) instruction and activities to develop the Heart-Mind Well-Being of our students, will we see more students achieving high levels on the Heart Mind Index (HMI) and will we see more students performing better academically in our school?
  • By identifying levels of student engagement and relationships, how can we promote positive student commitment and participation in school?
  • Will developing a strong school culture in Mathematics improve Math engagement, attitude, interest and motivation to improve skills for all students?
A copy of the Student Achievement Plan can be found on our website.

We encourage all parents and guardians to take an active role in their child’s education. Together, we can provide your child the support and direction he/she needs to lead a successful and rewarding life.

Best regards,

David Foster
