SD91 INDIGENOUS ED CALENDAR
Check here for important dates! We will be updating this calendar regularly. We will include events within our district and from in our local communities. If you have any other information that you would like included on the calendar please e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
JOYFUL LITERACY PARENTING POWER
The Joyful Literacy project is currently in the process of having Janet and her team create a variety of videos for parents. We will have access to those videos in the coming weeks and then can think about the various ways we will want to share out to our communities.
HONOURING DIVERSITY 8
One of our Strategic Plan goals in SD91 is to Honour Diversity. How do we hope to achieve this? One of the many ways that we are collectively working towards this goal is the Honouring Diversity 8 Humanities and Health Module. In order to have the community join us on our diversity journey, we have organized a speaker series that is designed to introduce our community to the various topics being explored in the district and in this course.
