Our vision is for all students to succeed. It is critical that we provide safe and caring schools where students have the resources and tools they need to be successful.
We have done a lot of work to support our students, but still, not all students are as doing as well in school as they should be. We need to change that.
We are looking at how we support all of our students and are taking a more focused approach. We must help those who aren’t reaching their potential, while also continuing to inspire, engage and raise the bar for all students.
Your voice and opinion are an important part of this conversation. Please join the discussion and share with us your thoughts on how parents and schools can work together to improve the learning experience for students.
There are three ways to share your insights and ideas: during an online webcast about equity, through an online form or an in-person consultation session. Visit our website to learn more about this work and how to share your thoughts. This is just the beginning of the conversation; we will continue to listen and consult with you as we develop and implement our plan.

Social Justice, Equity and Inclusion Committee- Survey – A committee of interested parents and teachers, with representation from School Council has met several times since January to discuss how we work together to support Equity Work at Frankland. We will share more with you in September related to plans moving forward and will be inviting you to support our work. Our committee has developed a survey that we invite you to complete before Thursday, June 30. This survey will provide us with valuable information that will be used by the committee and school staff moving forward. I hope that you will consider completing it. Thank you for taking the time to complete this survey. Please answer questions with reference to your oldest child attending Frankland as of June, 2016. Your participation is anonymous. No respondent information (e.g. names, email addresses, IP addresses, and custom data) will be collected. A link to the survey can be found at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/FrankEquitySur
On Tuesday at Frankland, we will celebrate that we are Proud as individuals and proud of the diverse community, city and country we live in. We are inviting children by grade to wear to school colours that represent the rainbow and have invited students in specific grades to wear specific colours, as follows:
Kindergarten- purple or shades of purple
Grade 1- blue or shades of blue
Grade 2- green or shades of green
Grade 3- yellow or shades of yellow
Grade 4- orange or shades of orange

We hope that you will support your child to participate and also invite you to join us in the school yard between 2pm and 3pm to participate in some fun, hear some music and maybe dance a little.
