Prescott Furniture Sneak Peak – May 31, 2016

Prescott Learning Centre is becoming a reality with each passing day!  A key component for me is to involve people in the process of “co-creating” the culture at Prescott. We have a unique privilege and opportunity to build this foundation together.

We believe that the furniture choices at Prescott, will help to foster a “collaborative learning culture”.  A colourful, warm environment with comfy and flexible seating, wobble stools, and tables which can be configured in multiple ways … will encourage community building, discussions & collaboration.  At Prescott Learning Centre … we will collaborate, create and learn together.

Please check out our Google Slide Presentation that we shared with our Prescott Staff in May, 2016.

Prescott Staff – Furniture Sneak Peak … May 31, 2016


In addition, after we open in the Fall, 2016 … we will create a focus group, which will provide opportunities for students, staff & parents to provide input & suggestions on “soft seating” and furniture choices for our Collaboration Centre, Innovation Studio, Conference Room etc.  This will help to build community and bring ownership to our Prescott Community … of our beautiful, new learning centre.

Prescott Learning Centre … a place to collaborate, create and learn together …

Meeting Prescott Students Currently in Grades K – 4

How FANTASTIC to be meeting our Early Years’ Prescott students. YEH!! Visiting Parkland Village School, Brookwood School and Millgrove School to meet with our Prescott Grades K-4 students was such a delight!  We shared pictures and videos of their new school.  They were so EXCITED!

Being able to see the students brings a heightened excitement to us! There is a gorgeous building being created for these students and their families. YEH – Prescott!!

Please check out the Google Slide Presentation we shared with our Prescott K-4 students in May, 2016.

Grades K – 4 – Meet and Greet – May, 2016




On Monday, May 16th, all current grade 5, 6 & 7 students who will be attending Prescott Learning Centre in the fall were bussed to Greystone Centenial Middle School for a “Meet and Greet” with the Principal, Karen Stride-Goudie and Assistant Principal, Nealle Dickson. This was a great opportunity for students from Woodhaven and Greystone schools to meet and connect with each other.

We were so excited to meet with Prescott Learning Centre’s first ever middle years students!  It was fantastic to introduce some of the teaching staff and have them share their excitement of joining Prescott Learning Centre’s Team.  Students enjoyed the pictures & latest videos of their new school.  YEH PRESCOTT!
