Message from our Student Counsellor

Hello everyone,

My name is Janice Baillargeon and I am happy to introduce myself as the counselor at Duclos Elementary School. I was born and raised in Lloydminster, Sk. After graduating high school, I received my Bachelors of Social Work from the University of Calgary in 2008. In 2015, my family and I relocated to Bonnyville and have made it our home! We love hockey, camping, being outdoors and exploring all the amenities the community has to offer. 

I am thrilled to be a part of the Duclos team and look forward to getting to know all the students, teachers, administrators and parents. Wishing everyone a great finish to the 2018-2019 school year.

Every Assembly there will be a short presentation from a classroom that will show just how much we SHINE in Duclos School.

Positive Behavior Supports for Duclos Students: “Be Respectful; Be Responsible; Be Safe”

At Duclos we have a positive social culture with common language, common experiences, and common vision and values. We believe in a school-wide positive behaviour support system.  With this approach we teach and address behaviours in a supportive way to preserve the dignity of children.  We seek to achieve social and academic success for all students.

The Duclos mantra, “SHINE!”,  is used daily with students as a teaching tool at school, and at home. It is a quick reminder for students, staff, family and visitors about what Duclos stands for and how we can all SHINE!

The Positive Behaviour at Duclos School chart (page 4 of the handbook) is used to reinforce and teach students to be respectful; responsible; and safe in all areas of our school.  It is used as a regular teaching tool in the school and can be used to reinforce positive behaviours at home.  This chart was created with input and support from students, parents, and staff.  These tools are used as a model for positive behaviour by everyone at Duclos and all our families and visitors.
