Ruth Pawson School Year Message

The Pawson Staff is excited for another school year.  The first week of school the staff began to plan for another dynamic school year.  The Big Rocks for Regina Public Schools were the focal point for our planning sessions. 

High expectations for all students

Literacy achievement for all students

Climate of belonging

Authentic engagement for all students and families

Focus on attendance matters

Improvement and success… celebrating what we do well

Improvement of graduation rates and Indigenous students

Throughout the school year we will provide students with engaging activities that promote a culture for learning and a place where they long to be.  In order for this to happen we need our students to be at school.  To encourage student attendance, the staff prepared a video that demonstrates a group of adults who care about their students and want them to come to school.  We want our students to know, they matter to us, we want to see their smiling faces each day, and we are invested in their learning.  If they attend they will achieve!

Social Media Awareness & Parenting the Digital World

We are excited to share the attached invitation to our upcoming Social Media Awareness and Parenting the Digital World event being held on Wednesday, September 26th at Campus Regina Public, starting at 7:00 p.m.  Regina Public Schools is proud to sponsor this event which is being presented by Safer Schools Together.

The parent presentation will focus on all things digital. Your child has now entered into their digital media lives, where cell phone ownership doubles, video game use explodes and they dive into the world of social media and hypertexting. Your child is rapidly developing their personal identity with cell phone in hand and you need to be prepared. Family rules, parental controls and developing a family tech plan will be outlined as well as recommendations for monitoring your teen’s digital life.   As a parent, you must lead the charge as a digital role model and help your child develop a strong digital citizenship foundation while reminding them that their digital footprint is a reflection of their real and online selves. At this age, they will encounter situations that will challenge their independence, including cyberbullying (and more commonly – cyberexclusion), the dangers of anonymity, privacy, sharing intimate images, and inappropriate websites, and you need to be there to provide support and guidance during this critical period. Finally, to better equip you for your digital parenting strategy, a snapshot of the current trends and concerning apps will be provided.

To RSVP your attendance for this event, please email leanne.wall@rbe.sk.ca by Friday, September 21, 2018. Limited seating is available.

Please feel free to share this invitation with your committee members and parents.  Everyone is welcome!

Principal's Message

I would just like to take a moment to thank the students, staff and community for the past four months.  Everyone has been so welcoming and supportive as I transitioned to Ruth Pawson as your Principal.   When I walked through the doors on the first day, I could sense the commitment to each other and the positive vibe that promoted a culture of belonging.   Over the past four months there are many things I have discovered about Ruth Pawson School.

  • The staff is extremely dedicated to students’ learning.  Each and every day they take into consideration student needs and provide them with a learning environment that allows student learning to flourish.
  • The students at Ruth Pawson School are very supportive and kind to each other and their teachers. They are dedicated to learning and strive to be the best they can be.
  • The SCC and families are very committed to their children and their learning.  On a daily basis they are supportive of Ruth Pawson Staff.  They instill the importance of education in their children and ensure their children attend school regularly.  
  • On a consistent basis there is celebration of who we are and all that we have accomplished.  It truly is a positive place to be. 

I want to thank you all for the past four month.  You have all made this a memorable experience.

I look forward to being your Principal for the 2018-2019 school year.  I wish you all a fantastic summer break full of laughter, relaxation and rest. 

Sincerely,

Kim Markwart
