Ellerslie News Dear Students and Parents,

Welcome to Ellerslie School's website. It is the mission of Ellerslie Campus to ensure high levels of learning for all students.  In order to do this, we focus as a staff, on three pillars, as briefly described below:
 
Pillar One:  A Focus on Learning, Not Teaching:  Teachers engage in the process of continuous and ongoing assessment of student learning, to ensure that all students learn the essential outcomes.  It is inevitable that some students will require additional time and support for some of these essential concepts.  Ellerslie staff provide tutorial and intervention time as a scheduled part of each day.
Pillar Two:  A Focus on Collaboration:  At Ellerslie, adult learning drives student learning. Teachers are involved in weekly collaboration to discuss curriculum, instructional design, assessment, data analysis, and intervention.  This collaboration provides teachers with professional development directly related to what they are teaching.  Further, this collaboration results in educational equity with students having the same access to excellent instruction regardless of who they have as a teacher. 
Pillar Three:  A Focus on Results:   Results drive instruction.  Staff analyze student work and the data from this analysis determine the next steps in instruction or intervention. This process is ongoing and continuous, and is part of what results in high levels of learning for all students. 
 
As Principal of Ellerslie School, I know that you will be impressed with the dedication and commitment of all our staff, to your child's education.  It is important to note that parents are an integral part of the success of our school, and of your children.  In order for our mission to be a reality we require the support and cooperation of our community.  Together we can ensure the success of every child.

Principal's Message

Welcome to Ellerslie Campus. We are a Kindergarten through Grade 9 Learning Community with approximately 600 students and our numbers continue to grow. At Ellerslie Campus, staff are committed to ensuring that students receive high levels of instruction and opportunities for learning in three key areas; academics, physical fitness and citizenship.

Ellerslie campus is dedicated to high levels of achievement. The staff of Ellerslie Campus embrace the premise that the very purpose of our school is to help all students learn at high levels. There is no ambiguity or hedging regarding this commitment to learning. Staff go beyond ensuring that children are taught, to ensuring that all students learn essential knowledge, skills, and attitudes. This focus is evident in every aspect of our school culture, as staff continually examine evidence of student learning, and further, identify interventions necessary to ensure all students learn.

Physical fitness and athletics play an important role in the education of all children. Ellerslie staff are committed to ensuring that students have every opportunity to develop their physical skills. This is evident not just in a commitment to sport, but in a commitment to learning physical activities and attitudes that will result in a life-long commitment to health and fitness.

Teaching Citizenship is more than just repeating character traits each month. Ellerslie staff and students are dedicated to teaching and learning essential life skills and characteristics necessary to thrive in the 21st century. Some of these skills include leadership, accountability, adaptability, initiative and self-direction, cross-cultural skills, responsibility, problem-solving, communication, creativity and teamwork. Ellerslie staff teach a generation of leaders one child at a time.

Teaching students to embrace excellence in academics, physical fitness and citizenship is more than an exercise in semantics; it is a commitment. Parents and community members can expect that learning will always be at the top of the Ellerslie agenda as we challenge ourselves and all students to excel in every area of their education. Welcome to a journey of achievement and excellence.

Proud to be the Principal,

Henry Madsen
