    Extra-Curricular Activities

    At Princeton School we believe that learning doesn't stop at the classroom door. We encourage our students to get involved in a variety of extra-curricular activities that promote the development of skills beyond the classroom. 

    Home Reading Program

    At Princeton School, we believe that in order to be successful learners, students must be successful readers. To help students develop their reading skills, we operate a home reading program. Students are asked to read for a certain amount of time each night depending on their grade level. They then receive prizes and recognition at school assemblies for reaching targets throughout the year. 

    Student Leadership

    Our AMA Safety Patrol helps to keep children safe outside while crossing the street. Grade six Office Helpers help answer phones in the office during recess and lunch.  Students also take an active role in leading our assemblies. 

    Field Trips and Visitors to our School

    Curriculum enrichment is provided throughout the year in the form of field trips and visitors to our school. Field trips are arranged by individual classroom teachers and are communicated to parents throughout the year. The Parent Council supports these valuable experiences by providing funds to ensure that all students are able to take part in these beneficial learning activities. 

    Princeton Pride Assemblies

    During our monthly assemblies, students receive recognition for their positive actions and achievements around the school. Students receive Milk and Cookies awards with the principal, as well as Home Reading awards. Students often lead aspects of these assemblies and take an active role by performing songs or plays. 

    There are also many theme days held throughout the year that give students the opportunity to have fun in a productive learning environment.

Welcome

Welcome to another great year of learning! At Princeton, we truly believe that every one of
us in this building is a learner, a teacher, and a leader. Our staff and our students all
constantly work hard, try new things, get feedback on our progress, refine our work and our
actions, do it again, and move to the next steps in our learning journey.


Everyone’s journey is unique. We challenge each other to be the best we can be. We
accept our own strengths and weaknesses. We celebrate success, and ensure our mistakes
are seen as learning opportunities. Mistakes are an essential part of our learning journey.
We try, we take a risk, we learn, we move forward. We learn together and alone, with
feedback, and with perseverance. We give back to our learning community.
Part of our journey is the need for students to be accountable for their own conduct and for
the development of positive relationships with others. We assume responsibility for
ourselves as learners, we teach others about respect and personal space, and we lead by
example. Positive relationships create an excellent learning atmosphere. Let all learn, let all
teach, and let all lead!


Each journey is much more than a list of simple facts. Students need to be competent in
many areas and will be tasked with solving the problems of today, while imagining and
creating a new tomorrow. Critical thinking, collaborating, managing information, and
developing cultural and global citizenship are all vital. These competencies are essential to
equip our students with the knowledge, skills, and attitudes that they will need to navigate
their personal journeys successfully.


Each journey starts when you walk through a door. Together with our community, we unlock
the doors to our future successes and learning opportunities. When we all do this together,
just imagine the possibilities!
