Character Education – Gratitude

 Fultonvale is exploring the virtue of gratitude at the end of our school year. Gratefulness is the key to a happy life because if we are not grateful, then no matter how much we have we will not be happy. Gratitude is an emotion expressing appreciation for what one has and for the people in one’s life. Research studies have shown that keeping a 5 minute a day gratitude journal will increase your long term wellbeing. Join us in exploring and expressing gratitude.

Grade 9 Farewell

Each year, we reluctantly say goodbye to our grade nine students, and wish them well as they move on to high school.  This year will be no exception.  We are beginning to plan our Grade Nine Farewell which will take place on Friday, June 12th.  We are establishing a committee of students, staff and parents to help us do this.  If any parents are interested in helping to plan and/or volunteer to assist with the Grade Nine Farewell event, please contact Mrs. Engel as soon as possible.  Thanks in advance for your help!

Fultonvale Volunteers

Feel the H.E.A.T. with Fultonvale Volunteers

Fultonvale School is fortunate to work with dedicated volunteers who exemplify our school motto of H.E.A.T. (demonstrating heart, excellence, positive attitude and teamwork).  We are a mindful community, avoiding distractions to be fully present with our students.  Volunteers extend and enhance student learning and act as positive role models for our students.  Fultonvale has enjoyed a long and rich tradition of volunteering.  Volunteers positively impact the learning environment in a variety of ways.  Volunteers share their time, talents and energy and are important partners in our school community. 

 Volunteers are required to:

  • Complete Elk Island Public Schools Volunteer Confidentiality Form.
  • Sign in and out at the office. 
  • Ensure name tag (available at office) is visible for students and staff.
  • Respect the privacy/confidentiality of the students you are working with
  • Familiarize themselves with the posted fire escape routes.

  • Refrain from smoking on school grounds and during school activities.
  • Avoid the use of digital devices/cell phones except for emergencies.
  • Refrain from taking photos on personal devices.
  • Refer inappropriate student behavior to Fultonvale staff.  Staff will correct student behavior.
  • Be aware that younger siblings cannot attend field trips – check with your teacher regarding other school events.
  • Schedule your visit in advance with the teacher and be punctual.  Notify the teacher if you cannot attend.
  • Ask the teacher for assistance when needed.

Thank you!

As you may know, the Fultonvale School Advisory Council has been fundraising for a new Division One playground.  We are getting close to our goal of $125, 000.00 and I just wanted to say a huge thank you to everyone who have been so generous!!  We are on the home stretch now with only $55,000.00 left to go. Our deadline for raising these funds is March of 2015 because at that time we apply to the Alberta government for a grant that will match all of the money we have raised.

Modernization

Modernization

Our new modulars for our grade 1, 2, and 3 classes have arrived and they are in place. Our Division I students have moved into their new and permanent classrooms.  Also, as the work has progressed, the ceiling tiles were removed and in order to keep the school running, the construction team will be taking over the core of the school including the junior high classrooms, library and art room.  We will then move the junior high classes into what was the Division I classes during the week of March 6th.  A mini-version of the library has been moved into our music room.  Access to the hallways and lockers will be minimized by hoarding off (roof and wall) of half of the hallway so that construction can continue safely for students, staff and construction workers.  CTS IA lab will also be under construction starting in February and the new gymnasium continues.

With the Phase II move for Division I now complete, please note that these students will continue to enter and exit the school via the front door as they have for the last while.

We are slated to have the core back for start-up of the new school year in August. 

Please continue to check back to the website 

Restorative Practices

Our practice is based on Restorative Practices of creating and sustaining relationships.

We don't really use the terminology of bullying.  We try and focus on the positive interactions and we deal with negative misunderstandings through repairing relationships by not casting blame but that everyone has a responsibility for their own actions, thoughts and words.

Through sharing circles, we promote communication, listening, understanding and forgiveness.

All the while, putting ourselves in the other person's shoes.

We repair relationships through listening, understanding and also asking all to reflect upon how they can repair and make it up to the other person or persons.

We are a family at Fultonvale where everyone's job is to keep themselves safe and each other safe.  Our other job is to learn and to help others learn.

All classes practice sharing circles to share, celebrate and communicate if there are misunderstandings or poor choices.  Elementary students practice sharing circles, sometimes daily or weekly.  Our junior high students practice this at least every second Monday morning and also as needed.  We give each of our students a voice.
