Achievement and School Improvement Planning

Measures of Student Achievement and Success

Twice a year, in February and June, the Ontario Provincial Report Card is prepared and sent home. In early November, we send out a Progress Report. Parent- teacher interviews are conducted the following week. During the course of the year, students participate in numerous learning demonstrations and performances, such as English and French public speaking, school plays, student talent show, student-produced publications such as the yearbook, and through participation in athletics. Our grade 6 students participate in the provincial EQAO assessment process. Results can be found on a subsequent page. Through assemblies, we celebrate accomplishments and review priorities such as the role we each play in creating a positive learning environment. We also have partnerships with outside agencies such as the Royal Ottawa Hospital, who facilitate an Early Intervention Program for students. We are also a part of the Ottawa 67’s Adopt-a-School program.

School Improvement Plans and Initiatives

For the 2019-2020 school year, the following school improvement plans and initiatives are underway:

• Ongoing partnership with the School Resource Officer.

• Partnership with School Council to build understanding of curricula, school programs and learning support strategies.

• Using the school website and other information technology to communicate information about school and community events, and offer parents a variety of options for communicating with members of the school community directly or through School Council.

Henry Munro Middle School’s school improvement plan for student achievement and well-being for 2019-2020 has implemented guided math groups in some of our Grade 6 English classes looking at personalizing instruction, implementing diagnostic and gap closing intervention tools such as Leaps and Bounds to increase student achievement in mathematics and support our ESL population. Our dedicated Grade 6 team has been implementing guided math groups since early fall. The educators create small flexible groups at the beginning of each math unit reviewing students strength, next steps and areas of growth. The focus of our school improvement plan is to increase our ESL student population achievement in mathematics and develop literacy skills that support the mathematics curriculum.
Student Well-Being
While academic achievement is a key component of our efforts as a school, we also recognize the importance of supporting learners as individuals and promoting well-being among our entire community. Our EIP programs are a key component in this effort. The Early Intervention Program (EIP) is a school-based psychoeducational program delivered by registered psychotherapists from the Royal Ottawa Mental Health Centre. The EIP group provides service to students in grades 7 and 8 who have identified concerns related to early onset mental health (i.e., depression or anxiety..). With parental consent, students participate in weekly 40 min group sessions during school hours to develop skills in assertive communication, problem solving and stress management. Henry Munro has approximately 32 students participating in weekly meetings with Kasie Coulombe our Group Facilitator.
