First Nations, Métis, Inuit
We acknowledge that we are on Treaty 6 territory, a traditional meeting grounds, gathering place, and travelling route to the Cree, Saulteaux, Blackfoot, Métis, Dene and Nakota Sioux. We acknowledge all the many First Nations, Métis, and Inuit whose footsteps have marked these lands for centuries.
Indigenous Education Program
EIPS Priority 1 and Goal 2 emphasizes success for every student. Within this goal is the following outcome:
Outcome: Self-identified First Nations, Métis and Inuit students and English Second Language students are demonstrating growth and achievement.
At Davidson Creek Elementary School, we are committed to creating a culture of understanding and celebration of diversity with respect to First Nations, Métis, and Inuit cultures.
This year, our program emphasizes providing equitable educational opportunities for self-identified First Nations, Métis and Inuit students to promote their success. Additionally, we provide cultural opportunities for these students. Our program has included Leveled Literacy Intervention, math support, Métis beading with a special virtual guest, and Cree language lessons with a special virtual guest.
Finally, our program promotes cultural understandings for all students through in class lessons, First Nations Fridays, and reconciliation activities, such as the blanket exercise for all students in grade five.
If you have any questions about the program or want to learn more, please contact Amy Wait at email@example.com.
