Celebration of Valentine's Day

On Wednesday, February 14th, the SRC will be hosting a dance for the school community in celebration of Valentine's Day. There will also be a $3.00 charge for admission, and there will be free canteen treats for K-4 (juice box and chips) and Grade 5-8 will have the option to purchase pop or popcorn for $2.00, chips for $1.00, and a "mystery bag" for $3.00. Come dressed in your best red, white and pink! Grades K - 4 will be dancing from 12:45 p.m. to 1:45 p.m.,  and grades 5 - 8 from 1:45 p.m. to 3:15 p.m.

Pink Shirt Day

In 2007, a grade 9 student in Cambridge, Nova Scotia, was bullied by classmates for wearing a pink shirt to school. Taking notice, two Grade 12 students named Travis Price and David Shepherd rallied their friends to send a message to the bullies. The next day the halls were filled with students in pink t-shirts. This was the beginning of Pink Day.

Red Cross Pink Day started when two boys chose do something about bullying rather than stand by and watch it happen. Now the movement is worldwide, educating and inspiring other to do something about bullying and to shift the culture away from this behaviour. Together we can do something about it. We can create safe and respectful environments for everyone!

Please join Ruth Pawson School students and staff, along with schools across Canada and around the world, for Red Cross Pink Day on February 28, 2018 and add your voice to the thousands of others calling for a change around the culture of bullying.

School Division Community Engagement Forum

Recent changes to Province of Saskatchewan Education Act legislation have resulted in the elimination of the requirement of Boards of Education to hold an annual meeting of electors. 

The Regina Board of Education believes that it is important to continue to provide its communities with opportunities to learn about and discuss public education issues that are important to them. The Regina Board of Education will be, therefore, hosting a Community Engagement Forum on January 30, 2018 at École Harbour Landing School at 7 p.m.

Mark your calendars!



Progress Reports

Progress Reports

Reporting to parents occurs regularly throughout the school year through the use of Parent Portal. This continuous communication provides Grade 1 - 8 students and parents with feedback that is clear, specific, meaningful and timely to support improved learning and achievement.

Progress Reports are issued twice a year to parents/caregivers of Kindergarten through Grade 8 students. In 2018, Reports will be issued on February 2nd and June 28th.

Personal & Social Growth

Regina Public Schools shared values allow students to know how to learn more effectively, develop their potential as independent learners and take ownership over their own learning. They are evaluated separately from student achievement of course expectations.

Levels of Achievement

The levels of achievement scale describes the student's progression toward meeting provincial outcomes. The levels are not used to compare students with other students.


K-8                                             Meaning

BE     The student is having difficulty meeting the outcome and requires assistance.

PR     Students who are progressing as expected will be in this range. Some assistance is required.

ME     The student is fully meeting the outcome. They show what they know independently.

ET     The child has full mastery of the outcome and can apply the knowledge. Students with these grades have extensive and deep understanding of the outcome and require no guidance or assistance.

IN     The student has not yet demonstrated enough evidence for reporting purposes.

AG     The student demonstrates understanding of outcomes that are adjusted in number and complexity. This level of achievement would be discussed with parents prior to the formal Progress Report.

EL     The student is focused on English language proficiency. Adjustments have been made to curriculum expectations to address language learning.
