Create a community of learners, add a celebration of teamwork and spirit with a focus on the family and this is Marvin Heights Public School. With approximately 600 students ranging in age from 3 to 11 and a Readiness Centre attracting infants and senior citizens, the energy and positive motion never cease. We offer full-day kindergarten implementation, hailing 8 classes comprised of a professional team of teachers and DECE in addition to 30 other educators in the building. In collaboration, we share expertise and a unique teaching craft as valuable human resources. Material and program resources include document cameras and LCDs in each classroom; co-created learning centres in classrooms; a Breakfast Program; a daily Milk Program and collaborative inquiry predominating our teaching pedagogy and professional learning.
Our committed and dedicated families attend monthly school council meetings and without fail, support our celebration of character traits on a monthly basis, providing generous giving at times of need. Their love of their children is reflected in their willingness to learn and participate in our Student Led Conferences occurring for full-day kindergarten to grade 5 and in supporting the school at the annual Garden Gala. Volunteers contribute to the giving spirit at Marvin Heights and their advocacy for our learners is overwhelming. Marvin Heights has been a precious gem in the community of Malton, Ontario.
