Week of October 23rd


Parkview continues to achieve above Board and Provincial averages in EQAO.  We want all students to be successful and do their best.  Parkview has two math coaches this year as well as professional development for teachers in Mathematics.  Both Lisa and Karl will also be participating in three days of math training that is offered by YRDSB for all administrators.




When determining the level of student achievement “Teachers use a variety of assessment strategies to elicit information about student learning. These strategies should be triangulated to include observation, student-teacher conversations, and student products.” Growing Success 2010 p.34.  This provides students with a variety of ways to show their learning and demonstrate a deeper understanding of concepts.
