Welcome to Sweet's Corners!

Principal’s Message

At Sweet’s Corners Elementary School, our core priorities are: Creating a caring and supportive environment; high levels of student achievement/reduced gaps in student achievement; and increased public confidence and involvement in our school. To fulfill these priorities, all members of staff accept responsibility for contributing to the academic, social, and emotional growth of each and every student.  For this collective effort to have an impact, all staff require a deep understanding of every student. Teaching and support staff meet on a regular basis to share and analyze the successes and challenges individual pupils are experiencing. These discussions help to inform our instructional practices and daily interactions with students.  We also have opportunities to grow our learning of current pedagogy through professional development days, learning teams, and staff meetings.

We view learning through the lens of a ‘growth mindset’ which begins with the view that intelligence is not static.  The development of one’s ability to learn and grow intelligence involves embracing challenges, persevering in the face of setbacks, seeing effort as the path to mastery, learning from criticism, and finding lessons and inspiration in the success of others. We are committed to helping our students develop a growth mindset.

Each day we nurture a culture of care.  We encourage our students to demonstrate admirable character traits. We recognize that the development of universally accepted character attributes helps children to build self-confidence and provides an ethical foundation necessary for meaningful participation in the local and global community.

To nurture the wellness of our students here at Sweet’s Corners Elementary School, we also provide many opportunities for students to participate in extra-curricular activities and quality, daily, physical exercise. Some of these activities include: track and field meets, sports tournaments, intramural sports, outdoor education, community events, and spirit days.

We have an active, supportive, and dedicated parent advisory council here at Sweet’s Corners.  Council members work closely with staff for school improvement, and they are instrumental in helping us reach out to the broader community.
