As with each school in the York Region District School Board, Glad Park P.S. supports student learning through the curriculum standards set out by the Ontario Ministry of Education and many other co-curricular activities.
  • A focus on literacy and learning - A focus on literacy forms the foundation of improvement planning at Glad Park P.S. We strive to provide students with the necessary skills in reading, writing, listening, speaking and viewing, with a current focus on student writing. Professional development is provided for school staff by Administration, YRDSB Consultants, Stouffville Learning Network, and Glad Park P.S. Staff Members (e.g., Glad Park P.S. Literacy Team). The following school programs and resources have supported us with this goal: Reading Recovery (tutoring for Grade 1 students who are not progressing at the expected rate), Links to Literacy (booster support programs for primary students), Parents as Partners (literacy supports for parents), and Monthly Writing Competitions (sponsored by the School Council).
  • A focus on assistive technology - We are committed to attaining, using, and learning about the many forms of assistive technology that support staff and students.
  • A focus on student leadership - We have an active (non-elected), problem solving student leadership council that focuses much of their attention on our school goal of developing and sustaining a respectful school (e.g., charitable fundraising, "Me to We" activities).
  • A focus on whole child education - We offer a wide variety of co-curricular and extracurricular activities (e.g., athletics, arts, clubs). Some of those activities include: Musical Productions (e.g., Willy Wonka), Math Competitions (e.g., Gauss), Games Club, Public Speaking, Spelling Bee, Field Trips, Winter Electives (Downhill Skiing, Skating), Seasonal Concerts, Fundraising (e.g., PGL, Terry Fox Run, Quarters for Kids), Together We're Better YRDSB Student Conference Team, You're the Chef Cooking Club, Athletic Teams (Volleyball, Basketball, Soccer, Badminton, Cross-Country Running, Track & Field, Relay, Swimming), Play Days, Student Leadership Council, Intramurals, ECO Club, Book Fair, Health & Safety Club, Student Writing Contest, VIP, Student Success Assembly, Swim to Survive, Scientist in the School, Arts Performances, Spirit Days, Knitting Club, Girls Club, Yearbook, and Peer Mediation.
  • A focus on developing and sustaining a respectful school - Our goal is to be a respectful school, where all people feel safe and valued. The following school activities and resources have supported us with this goal: YRDSB Safe & Supportive Schools Policy and Procedures, YRDSB Character Education Initiatives (e.g., Together We're Better YRDSB Student Conference), on-site Child and Youth Worker, Peer Mediation, Guest Speakers and Performances, Bullying Prevention Programs, the York Regional Police VIP Program, Restorative Approaches Training for Staff, Tree of Respect Assemblies, and Me to We Activities .
