Satoo School is situated in the Knottwood area of Mill Woods and is the community school for the Satoo and Summerside neighborhoods. We are committed to providing students with an exceptional education that will prepare them well for their academic career and for life.
- take pride in supporting all students, recognizing that each one has individual strengths and needs.
- offer special education programming, along with a variety of challenging and enriching activities to complement classroom learning.
- strive to create meaningful and relevant learning experiences where students can apply their in-class experiences and concepts they’ve learned to real situations.
- build a strong foundation in literacy and numeracy for all students through engaging work, regular assessments and child specific interventions.
The ability to read, write, create meaning, think critically and communicate using evolving technologies and tools is essential to student success, especially in an ever-changing society.With the support of parents and community members working together with our school, we can create an educational experience that will prepare students for the future.
Leader in Me
“We only get one chance to prepare our students for a future that none of us can possibly predict. What are we going to do with that one chance?” - Stephen R. Covey
At Satoo, we take pride in being a Leader in Me school. The Leader in Me is based on Stephen Covey’s 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. The 7 Habits are integrated into our school’s culture, teaching students valuable life lessons in responsibility, leadership and citizenship. It is a program we believe is worth investing in so that all students can have the skills to achieve their full potential. Thank you to our Satoo Parent Involvement Group (SPIG) for funding this program.
Habit #1: Be Proactive - You’re in Charge I am a responsible person. I take initiative. I choose my actions, attitudes and moods. I do not blame others for my wrong actions. I do the right thing without being asked, even when no one is looking.
Habit #2: Begin with the End in Mind - Have a Plan I plan ahead and set goals. I do things that have meaning and make a difference. I am an important part of my classroom and contribute to my school’s mission and vision. I look for ways to be a good citizen.
Habit #3: Put First Things First - Work First, Then Play I spend my time on things that are most important. This means I say “no” to things I know I should not do. I set priorities, make a schedule and follow my plan. I am disciplined and organized.
Habit #4: Think Win-Win - Everyone Can Win I balance courage for getting what I want with consideration for what others want. I make deposits in others’ Emotional Bank Accounts. When conflicts arise, I look for third alternatives.
Habit #5: Seek First to Understand, Then to Be Understood - Listen Before you Talk I listen to other people’s ideas and feelings. I try to see things from their viewpoints. I listen to others without interrupting. I am confident in voicing my ideas. I look people in the eyes when talking.
Habit #6: Synergize - Together Is Better I value other people’s strengths and learn from them. I get along well with others, even people who are different than me. I work well in groups. I seek out other people’s ideas to solve problems because I know that by teaming with others we can create better solutions than anyone of us can alone. I am humble.
Habit #7: Sharpen the Saw - Balance Feels Best I take care of my body by eating right, exercising and getting sleep. I spend time with family and friends. I learn in lots of ways and lots of places, not just at school. I find meaningful ways to help others.
