In language arts students read non-fiction paragraphs of a chosen topic. Then students evaluated the paragraph. They were asked to question, what makes an interesting, well-structured paragraph? What makes a boring, poorly structured paragraph? Students will be using this information to begin writing paragraphs about their Alberta Region.
Students were also introduced to new literacy centers for the week! Check out IRIS if you're interested in seeing your child's goals for this term!
Question of the day: How can technology best support your learning?
Please see technology information below.
Dear Parents and Guardians,
All students at Evergreen school have access to a variety of digital tools in their daily learning. From desktop and laptop computers to iPads and iPods, our students use technology to enhance and support their learning in many ways. A wireless student network for Internet access using student owned personal electronic devices (such as iPods, iPads, tablets, or laptop computers) is provided at Evergreen School. The use of personal devices by students, with the guidance of parents and teachers will assist in addressing individual student preferences and needs for learning.
Access to the LAWN (Learner Accessible Wireless Network) is available to students on a voluntary basis. The LAWN emphasizes student learning and places responsibility on students for appropriate use and behavior. All parents/guardians are encouraged to discuss the learning opportunities and the risks with their son or daughter. A copy of a parent student contract will be available through message easy and on our school website. Students who wish to bring digital devices to school to use in their learning will be required to sign the contract with their parents' permission and return it to school beforehand. Be assured that the content filtering that is normally used to filter inappropriate material and content on the school’s internal network will also be applied to the open access network.
As with any personal belonging that a student brings to school, the school cannot be responsible for electronic devices that are lost, stolen or damaged. This is a significant opportunity for students to personalize their learning by choosing with their parent’s appropriate technology for their learning needs.
Thank you for your attention to this important information. For more information, visit the CBE website at
