Physical Literacy and Community Connections (PLCC)

 

The Physical Literacy and Community Connections (PLCC) program utilize different community venues in Red Deer and surrounding area to further enhance our Foundations program student's learning. The City of Red Deer is blessed with many facilities and community partners that have the ability to add significant value to the already successful learning experience of our Foundations students in the classroom. 

The focus of PLCC is put on functional programming, physical literacy, healthy life choices, literacy/numeracy and faith. PLCC gives our students of Foundations new opportunities to become more familiar and comfortable while out in various community settings. It provides our students an opportunity to experience real world situations that extend across their lifespan.

This year the PLCC program has expanded to include the Foundations programs at École Secondaire Notre Dame High School, St. Francis of Assisi Middle School, and St. Teresa of Avila School. All calendars featured on the PLCC Foundations page will have updated information for all 3 programs.

If you have any questions or would like to know more about the Physical Literacy and Community Connections program contact your child's teacher or contact Randi Schmidt, Program Coordinator at randi.schmidt@rdcrs.ca.
