Thank You to Moose FM

We would like to thank Moose FM for their generous donation of $450 towards our Music Program at Anne Roberts Young Elementary School. This donation will be used to help us purchase instruments to support our staff with the implementation of our Music Program at ARYES. We believe music is important to the development of our students and your support is very much appreciated.

Thank you to everyone at Moose FM

Anne Roberts Young Framework for Enhancing Student Learning 2020-21

As part of our staff collaboration sessions we have been working on the initial steps towards creating our Framework for Enhancing Student Learning at ARYES. Our Framework for Enhancing Student Learning is a document that is continually evolving and is meant to be shared and created as a school community, as a guide for creating school improvement. Here at Anne Roberts Young Elementary School we have started working on creating a framework which will reflect a commitment to our parents and educational partners to work together to continuously improve learning for each student. It reflects local and provincial input and is aligned with the BC Ministry of Education Framework. We have attached a pdf version of our most recent document but you can also find it at any time on our website. It is listed as “ARYES Framework for Enhancing Student Learning” located under the pull down menu “About”.
