Every Day Counts for Students
SEPTEMBER 1 -- Chinook School Division, along with the Saskatchewan School Boards Association and other school boards across the province, is promoting the importance of being prosent and participating at school and this year’s theme is “Be present at school – every day counts”.
To honour and reinforce the importance of education, September 1, 2015 – the first day back at school in Saskatchewan – was proclaimed Provincial Students’ Day in the province by the Hon. Don Morgan, Minister of Education and this theme was announced by education partners.
“Thank you to teachers and staff who have worked hard to get their classrooms ready to welcome students back on their first day of school,” Minister Morgan said. “Provincial Students’ Day highlights the importance of being ready to learn in the classroom today and throughout the year.”
The theme of “Be present at school – every day counts” is Student First and supports the targets set out in the Education Sector Strategic Plan to improve student achievement in Saskatchewan.
