Every student at Polson School becomes a member of one of four villages, Grey Wolves, Purple Pirahnas, Yellow Lightning Bolts and Teal Seals. Village include students of all ages who score points for thier villages when they participate in school activities. Monthly assemblies are held to recognize accomplishments by villagers.
Every student is placed in a mixed-age group. Each cycle the groups get together and talk about an issue that is relevant to learning about being a socially responisible person. Lessons are locally produced by teachers and are geared to address current concerns in the school.
At Polson we believe in assembling together to have common experiences. There are regular student run assemblies for events like Remembrance Day, Unity Tree, and Year of the Drum. Parents and community members are welcome to join us at these assemblies.
