ATM: Ready to Learn
Did you know that Foothills School Division is a full participant in the local collective of community service providers and organizations that serve the Foothills area? This partnership, called The Network, includes over 20 groups committed to support and services for children, youth, and families.
We are active members of The Network in many ways. We represent and hold the role of co-chair of The Network Steering Committee, co-chair and participate in both Network Priority Working Groups and are active participants in the Annual Youth Mental Wellness Summit (the 3rd annual summit will take place this spring).
Ready to Learn - The Network’s Priority Working Group 1, is dedicated to operationalizing the concept of all children being ‘ready to learn’ when they arrive at school. This means they have developed effective social skills; they are beginning readers and mathematicians; they have good motor skills and are prosocial in their behaviour.
Our expertise in education includes a deep understanding of child development enabling us to recognize that all children develop at a different rate. Ready to Learn aims to provide any support and services that may be needed to allow each learner to achieve their potential in school.
FSD is proud to be counted among the partner organizations of The Network and to support our community before, during, and after kids attend our schools.
We are all part of the Greater Foothills community and are responsible for supporting one another in being the best we can be.
