Principal's Message

January 2018

Happy New Year to all of our Acadian Families from the staff at Acadia School!
Welcome back to school. We hope that everyone had a restful holiday and are ready to get back to the routine of school. As I am writing this newsletter the last week of school in December we have been blessed by some amazing, warm winter weather but as this newsletter goes out in January I know that the weather may not be as amazing as it has been. I am reminding families to make sure that your children are well dressed for the cold and know that we will be having inside recess days when the weather is -20 or colder. On these cold days, students will be brought inside in the mornings and all entrance doors will be open for students. You will know that it is a cold day as we will post blue notices outside of each entrance door stating that students should come in to the school. We ask that your child please enter the school by their regular entrance doors every morning unless they are late to school when they should enter through the main school doors so that they may receive a late slip in the office. Please note that supervision begins each morning at 7:45 for all students.
With a new year brings changes to our school. Mrs. Jemmott has announced her retirement at the end of this month. Mr. Evan Gelman will be coming in to cover her class until the end of the school in June. We wish Mrs. Jemmott all the best in her retirement and welcome Mr. Gelman to our school community.
Upcoming events for the month of January include our School Council Meeting at 6:30 on January 10. Also on January 19 at 9 AM our Grade 4 classrooms will be sharing their learning with our school community. We welcome all parents to come and join us at that time in the gym. And finally, report cards will be going home to parents on January 25.
Also, in preparation for their upcoming field trip to the Open Minds Science School in February, the Grade 5 classes will be holding a reverse bottle drive. The grade 5 class is asking families if they could keep their bottles over the Winter Holiday and then bring them to school the week of January 8-12. The grade 5’s will use the money generated from the reverse bottle drive to help pay for their week long field trip to the Open Minds Science School at the Spark Science Center in February.
As always, we appreciate the opportunity to work with your children on a daily basis and we always welcome conversations with our Acadian Families. And as we say to start all of our Acadia School assemblies: “It’s a great day to be an Awesome Acadian! Oh YEAH!”
Thank you for making everyday an awesome day for all of our Awesome Acadians.
Respectfully,
Lisa Bartel, Principal 
Tamra Wilcox, Assistant Principal​
