Welcome to the Nelson Mandela Park PS Web site. We are committed to "building a Culture of Caring" at our school where each and every student is provided with the supports they need to reach their full potential. For this year, our School Improvement Plan focuses on the following:
Literacy – continue to focus on daily or near daily Guided Reading.
Increase time spent doing Shared and Guided Writing with a focus on different forms of writing.
Numeracy – implementation of TDSB Expected Practices in Numeracy document. We will begin with a focus on doing 3 part lessons in Math.
Use of Jump workbooks to support learning at home as opposed to being the focal point of math learning in the classroom.
Change in start time to reduce lates by assisting students who are responsible for their siblings in the morning.
Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) project to promote further inclusion of Special Needs students.
Focus on learning about First Nations people.
The Implementation of Zones of Regulation in all GR K-6 classes.
Use of mindfulness practices (yoga, Minds Up activities, positive mindsets, etc) in GR 7-8.
If anybody has any questions about our School Improvement Plan or any other matter please come and talk to us at the school or call us at 416-393-1620. Thank you for your support.
