Welcome to the Nicholson Elementary School website!
Nicholson Elementary serves a vibrant, rural community stretching from Castledale and Harrogate in the south northwards to the outskirts of Golden, BC. We are part of Rocky Mountain School District No. 6, and we have a student population of just over 90 students enrolled in Kindergarten to Grade 7. We are a Leader in Me school, one of approximately 20 in British Columbia. As a Leader in Me school we learn and practice Stephen Covey's 7 Habits of Highly Effective People.
To the right you will see our Nicholson Elementary vision statement. A vision statement is the foundation of a school. It states our aspirations, drives our decisions, and guides our goals. Our values state who we are and what we believe. Just as a vision is our foundation, values are our bedrock. Here are Nicholson Elementary's values:
Our school will provide a setting for all to:
· develop their individual potentials as learners.
· be appreciated for their unique strengths, talents and abilities.
· work together as part of a learning community.
· contribute to their classroom, school and community.
We are constantly reflecting on our values, and revise them as necessary to ensure that they reflect the opportunities and strengths of our school.
As a principal it is my job to do all I can each day to support the journey of our students, staff, families and community in ways that honour and support our vision and values. If there is anything I can do to support you and your children on your journeys this year please let me know.
Mr. Bob Wilson
