I trust that you have had a wonderful Spring Break with your kids, and hope you and your children are excited to be returning to school for our last term.
Over the course of this school year staff and students have been working on creating our RAVEN values. These 7 values are a reflection of what we as a school community see as a foundation for our students that we can all aspire too. The RAVEN values give us some common language and direction for how we work together here in our school community. The Raven (when holding a moon in it’s beak) is a symbol of knowledge and creativity, and represents the goals and direction of our school learning plan (to support creative and critical thinkers). We started this journey last year with our local carver Art Harry who came and worked with students to create the Raven carving that sits in our front entrance. The Raven is known as a catalyst for change and helps us in learning valuable life lessons. So it seems fitting to frame our identity around our intent to be a community focused, creative and compassionate school.
We are now in a position to seek out feedback from families regarding our RAVEN values.
Please visit our school learning plan (link also below), and then go and fill out the parent survey attached.

Thank you for your time, input and support. Building this together will only make it more meaningful and powerful for our students.

* Ts̓qáxa7 Sp̓áq̓em is a Lil’wat name given to me by Tanina Williams. It is a new Ucwalmícwts word that translates into horse flower (dandelion). While these plants are not native to these lands, they are strong, can grow anywhere and have become a resource for the Lil’wat people.
