Our School Plan Progress 2018-2019

Improving Student Learning

The Abbotsford School District’s Strategic Plan reflects our public commitment to BC’s new curriculum by working together to continuously improve learning for each student.

School Goals

Under the Framework for Enhancing Student Learning, all Abbotsford School District schools are required to develop a long term plan to improve student achievement, one that maintains a balance on the intellectual, social and career development of students. Each year, each school develops an annual plan and sets individual goals to improve student achievement. 

Clearbrook Elementary School Goals

Intellectual

Our students will learn key academic skills - like reading, writing and math - to encompass the knowledge and processes associated with intellectual development. As learners and meaning-makers, students take subject-specific concepts and content and transform them into a new understanding. 

Our celebrations of learning

Daily Five

Students reading to themselves, with a friend, working with words, and practicing their writing.

Learning about Canada's Aboriginal Heritage

The curriculum and Syo:ys Week provide all students a platform to learn about the first people of Canada. Clearbrook students are thankful to have the opportunity to hear stories, learn traditions, and celebrate aboriginal heritage.

What do I know?

Learning Targets and Self-Reflection give Clearbrook students the power to identify what they know, what they are learning, and what they still need to work on. By understanding their own learning, they can advocate for themselves and what they need to be successful.

Come Learn with Me

Come Learn with Me is an opportunity for parents and grandparents to learn with their child.

Human & Social

Our students will study personal and human social skills and as they relate to students' identity in the world - both as individuals and as members of their community. We are learning that personal and human social skills encompass the abilities students needs to thrive as individuals, to understand and care about themselves and others, and to find and achieve their purposes in the world. 

Our celebrations of learning

Celebrating Many Cultures

Clearbrook is a diverse school community that celebrates many cultures - Diwali, Chinese New Year, Carnaval, Christmas, and so much more!

Green Team

Caring for our environment is something our Green Team takes very seriously! They are wonderful environmental ambassadors and leaders in the school.

Clearbrook's Soup-er Bowl

The Soup-er Bowl is an annual event supporting the Abbotsford Food Bank. This pre-Christmas event allows students and their families the opportunity to support those in need. To add a little extra fun, there is friendly competition, the class earning the most points is crowned the Soup-er Bowl champions!

Community Involvement

Programs like Chai and Chat, and Roots of Empathy open the school doors to the broader Clearbrook community. Chai and Chat welcomes parents and grandparents weekly to visit, enjoy the company of others, and engage in learning. Roots of Empathy works with a grade 2 class in supporting their growth and understanding of how to be kind, repectful, and empathetic - and most importantly baby Elias comes to visit every 3 weeks. It is so much fun watching him grow!

Careers

Our students will succeed in a much different future from the one we envisioned 10 or 15 years ago. It is our responsibility to prepare all children for success in whatever life path they choose, connecting learning opportunities with future career possibilities. We know that real-life experiences - like community involvement, gaining business knowledge, and hands-on-learning - build better students and life-long citizens. 

Our celebrations of learning

What will I do when I grow up?

Wondering what career they may choose is a question asked by all students. Having the opportunity to see what some career possibilities might be, including a visit from the Mayor of Abbotsford, Abby Police, and the Urban Safari, helps their spirit of discovery.

Coding

Learning how to code will not only be an important skill heading into the future, but it's also a lot of fun. Coding helps students think both creatively and critically in order to solve a problem!

STEAM

Combining Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math helps students develop skills in communication, problem solving. Using different materials, and in many different settings, students focus on the process - and come up with an array of creative solutions!
