Okte Elementary

  • Okte and Chango Orchestra students are working hard and having fun in lessons and rehearsals! Gr. 5 students have been practicing memorizing their pieces for upcoming concerts and are working on playing with eyes closed to help with ensemble listening. Gr. 4 students have begun putting fingers down on the fingerboard to create new pitches in their pieces for upcoming recitals. They are also starting beginning bowing and beginning tone production exercises in class.

Mission:

We envision a school in which staff, students and community:

  • focus on what we expect all students to learn, examine how we will know if they have learned it and know how we will respond if students have/have not learned.
  • create an environment that promotes and celebrates effective and on-going communication and respect.
  • develop and maintain our capacity to function as a professional learning community with a common purpose and clear goals.
  • encourage risk taking that promotes personal and academic growth.
  • embrace 21st century, project-based learning.
  • demonstrate a personal commitment to the academic success and general well-being of all students.
