Principal's Message

June 2017

​Happy June!
“One benefit of summer was that each day we had more light to read by.”Jeannette Walls
As we enter our final month of school I am shocked and amazed at how quickly this school year has flown by. The month of June is a busy time as we continue to create engaging learning tasks for all of our students mixed with a variety of extra-curricular activities including our Acadia Talent Show (June 23), Grades 1-4 swimming lessons, Kindergarten zoo field trips and our Sports day (June 9). Our School Council is also working right into June with our annual Family Dance night (June 9). Our teachers will be in attendance at the Family Dance and we look forward to dancing the night away with all of our Acadia families!
As we end this school year we are also looking forward to next school year and have started our initial planning for next year. At this time I am pleased to announce Tamra Wilcox as our new Assistant Principal who will join Acadia School for the 2017-2018 school year. She is presently the Acting Assistant Principal at Evergreen School and will complete the 2016-2017 school year at that school. Tamra comes with a wealth of experience and I am excited to welcome her to our Acadia Team.
We are also in the process of hiring new staff for the next school year. Once staff and grade configurations have been confirmed we will be sharing this information with parents. If any families know that they are moving out of the Acadia School community for the next school year, please contact the office so that we can update our student enrollment numbers.
As we go through our staffing processes to get ourselves ready for the next school year we are also preparing our students for their transition to the next grade for the upcoming new school year. To do this we will have a transition day on June 26 where all students in the school will get the opportunity to visit the next grade classrooms (for example, the Kindergarten students will visit grade one classes, grade one student visit Grade 2 classes, etc). This is done to help alleviate any anxieties or concerns that students may have as they progress on to the next grade at Acadia School. These visits will allow the students to do a next year learning activity and get the opportunity to see the next grade classrooms. Please note that the classrooms students visit may not be the same classroom/teacher that they will be assigned to for the following year. Rather, this is an opportunity to visit the next grade classroom and participate in some ‘next year’ activities.
As you can tell, Acadia School will be a busy place right up until the last day of school!
Respectfully,
Lisa Bartel​
