School Alert System
This past week we activated our School Alert System. We’re proud to say all our students and staff responded appropriately and implemented the LOCKOUT very well. The school was back to normal operation after about 15 minutes. ~see school notice for further details

Remembrance Day – look back
Communicating Student Learning
At Georges Vanier we continue to examine how we can better communicate student learning with parents.
The Term 1 Report Card you will receive in December may look similar to some of the formats which were used last school year at GV. Some teachers at our school will make use of a “Freshgrade” so that students and parents can receive timely and descriptive feedback while learning is occurring. Kindergarten through grade 7 teachers at Georges Vanier will continue to indicate student achievement in relation to Learning Outcomes and Big Ideas through the use of rating scales, rather than letter grades. We invite parents to talk further with teachers or school Administrators about our assessment and reporting practices at GV.
