Catch the Spirit

Safe, Caring and Inclusive School Committee

The SCIS Committee, with representation from parents, staff and students, met for the first time at the end of May.  This committee will be working to help provide information and direction on the development of programs and policies for the Northlake Woods school community.

What is the purpose and role of a SCIS team?

The purpose of our team is to promote a positive school climate within the school and school community, and the team acts in an advisory role to the school principal. The team will engage stakeholders in the school community in order to raise awareness of the importance of a positive school climate to all areas of student achievement. The team will identify areas for improvement through analysis of the School Climate Survey data and through consideration of other information regarding gaps or needs. The team will assist the school administration with development and implementation of the school’s bullying prevention and intervention plan.

Watch here as more information comes from the work that this committee will be doing throughout the 2014 – 15 school year.

Character Development is a fundamental key in creating a learning environment that enables students to strive for and thrive on success.

At Northlake Woods we work to embed the 8 Character Attributes in all that we do. These attributes are at the foundation of what we value and work to strengthen in our students, staff and Catch the Spirit!
