About Us - School Overview

Welcome to École Lord Tweedsmuir!

École Lord Tweedsmuir Elementary, with its proud history of over 70 years, is pleased to offer Early French Immersion in addition to the regular program, Kindergarten to grade five.

The 2018-2019 school year opens with several exciting and impressive initiatives underway. With phase one (our new vegetable garden) of our Outdoor Green Space complete, phase two and three will unfold this Fall and next Spring. Our Zones of Regulation Program and two “Zones” room spaces help to facilitate self-regulation and promote classroom success for students. Our designated “Maker-Space” allows whole classes a dynamic and materials-rich venue to imagine, design, and build!

And this year, staff will be introducing e-portfolios to parents at every grade level.  We look forward to parent feedback on how we are doing as we strive to make communication of student learning accessible and informative for parents.


Our Mission and Goal

Our mission is to provide educational programs that are diverse, student centered, and engaging for all learners.

Our school-wide goal for the 2018-2019 school year is focused on assessment for learning practices in classrooms, as we move toward e-portfolios for improved communication of student learning.
