Message from Administration

Welcome to Rainbow Creek Elementary!

In order for our learners to thrive, we first focus on building strong relationships. Relationships are the foundation for all learning and, indeed, for the entire culture of our school. We take time to get to know each student not only as a learner but as a person. We work to meet their needs and to set them up for success. We support them in building foundational skills in literacy and numeracy while enabling them to become critical thinkers and responsible citizens who respect diversity.

Our approach to instructional design focuses on using the principles of Universal Design for Learning to create meaningful experiences for ALL learners. Classroom teachers collaborate with our learning support teachers to create units, lessons and experiences that ensure all students have access to the curriculum and are able to achieve success. Students are encouraged to show what they know in a way that fits their individual learning preferences.

If you are working on something exciting that you really care about, you don’t have to be pushed. The vision pulls you.

During the 2020/21 school year, in the face of a global pandemic, we have had the challenge of providing meaningful experiences for our students while keeping everyone safe. Our staff have embraced these challenges and stretched themselves to teach in different ways while consistently maintaining a positive, caring attitude. Our students quickly became accustomed to the changes and are thriving within their learning environment. They show us every day that they are resilient and happy to be in school with their friends. We know that there are additional challenges ahead for us but we are excited to be on this learning journey with our staff and students and are looking forward to a successful year.
