About Our School
Letter from the Prinicpal
Shaker Lane is a warm and inviting Preschool through Grade 2 school. We pride ourselves in providing students with rich learning experiences that assist in the development of academic and social growth. It is our belief that questions and inquisitive minds lead to students driving their learning. The staff at Shaker Lane is committed to providing your child with a challenging and stimulating experience. We want to see their passion for learning grow from year to year and are happy to be on this journey with them.
We want parents to feel welcome at Shaker Lane from the moment you register your child until we hand them off to the Russell Street School. Our school is a success due to the positive parent involvement where we believe that strong collaborative partnerships between home and school should always be present. We look forward to seeing you at Shaker Lane for a visit, volunteer or to just say hello!
Here at Shaker Lane we are committed to promoting a respectful, caring, and responsible environment that enhances students' self esteem and social skills. H.E.A.R.T. is at the core of our values here at Shaker Lane. H is for Honesty in one's actions and words. E stands for Effort in both one's work and play. A is for Acceptance of the likeness' and differences in everyone in our community. R is for Respect for learning, for oneself, for others and our environment. T stands for Taking Responsibility for what you do and say, and for each other. Through direct teaching and modeling, along with constant visual and verbal reminders throughout our school community, it is our hope that these core values become embedded in our culture. They are a clear representation of what we believe in as a school community. H.E.A.R.T. sets high expectations for learning and behavior for both students and faculty.
