Elephant Thoughts

Staff from Elephant Thoughts visit each school regularly to help enrich the learning experience for youth. The goal is to support our youth to graduate and develop excitement around learning by integrating traditional learning into contemporary learning.

Elephant Thoughts focuses on programs that increase graduation rates, excite students about learning, connect the entire community to the education system, and teach relevant skills, Elephant Thoughts is particularly valuable as students prepare for final exams.

Response to Intervention (RTI)

RTI (Response to Intervention) is a collaborative multi-tiered support process that offers high quality classroom instruction combined with targeted intervention. The RTI professionals work together with administrators and teachers to develop RTI sequences of learning.

The RTI sequences target grade level essential literacy skills in Cree, English, and French. The goal of the RTI process is to ensure that all students are given the opportunity and support needed to attain grade level literacy competency.
