October promises to be a busy month for John Knox Christian School (JKCS) in Stoney Creek, as it takes steps towards implementing its All Kinds of Minds framework.
This year, The Niagra Association of Christian Education (NACE) will seek to introduce a culture of Instructional Excellence, where teachers are actively engaged in identifying the affinities, strengths and weaknesses of their students. By partnering with parents, educators at JKCS will create a Student Learning Profile for each child.
On October 17, from 7:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., Pam Maat from the Christian Learning Centre will lead JKCS parents in an information session about the All Kinds of Minds framework. Maat’s presentation will give parents a ‘sneak preview’ of what she will be teaching the staff about creating and using Student Learning Profiles the next day.
NACE Executive Director, Tony Kamphuis, sees good parental and teacher engagement as something that will play a key role in the school’s approach to instructional excellence.
