    Principal's Message

    April Updates

    ​Dear Parents
    Thank you for your recent participation in Learning Conferences last week.  These events are important opportunities for teachers to provide updates on student learning progress. Many grades also use Learning Conferences or Celebrations of Learning for students to share their own learning. Reflection, self-assessment and goal setting are all important early steps towards student self-advocacy.  
    In addition to our day-to-day work in classes, several events have been happening around our school.  Several grades have completed or have upcoming Residency experiences to augment their learning.  Grade six recently welcomed Mobile Escapes in to their classrooms.  After participating in some locked room challenges, students worked in groups to problem solve and create their own locked rooms.  While learning about the wetlands, grade five students worked with a visual artist, Michele Austen to practice several art techniques and then created some amazing watercolour art.  Kindergarten and grade two students invited Trickster Theatre to come in.  They worked together to use their imagination and creativity to write and perform plays based on Social Studies or Science topics.  Other grades will be working with a Residency in the near future.  More details will be provided on the News Stories section of our website.
    We are most grateful to our eternally supportive parent group at School Council and Signal Hill School Enhancement Society for funding these residencies.  Some of the common characteristics of these Residency experiences include:
    - High levels of student engagement
    - Learning from an expert in their field of expertise
    - Learning is unique and alternative ways
    - Students experiencing new ways of learning
    Parents may have heard through their children that we had a great assembly on Thursday, Apr 19. First, our Enviro Club shared ways to become a better friend to the environment – a very important message.  With the help of our young volunteers, students are becoming much better at using our refund, recycle and compost bins. Our next step will be to reduce the number of plastic utensils and Ziploc bags and increase the use of reusable containers. 
    Secondly, we learned about an upcoming Talent Sharing at the school.  Students will have the opportunity to share a talent during music class and some may decide to audition to share at a whole school assembly.  
    Thirdly, we drew names for students who have been raising money for Jump Rope for Heart.  We have raised approximately $7500 toward our goal of $8000!  Our community continues to prove that our students and their families want to make a difference.  We encourage students to complete their fund raising and return forms by Monday, April 30.   
    Finally, we gave a heart-felt farewell to our Library Assistant, Mrs. Hall who has decided to retire and travel with her husband.  We extend our sincere thanks for many years of buying books that students love and turning them on to reading.  All the best in your travels, Mrs. Hall.
    If you are in the school in the coming weeks, you will notice that our walls are getting some treatment.  Starting in the Mini, then in the Core, our walls are getting patched and painted!  The “New Battalion Park School” is starting to take shape!
    Thank you to those parents who attended our School Council meeting on Wednesday, April 18.  These monthly meetings are open to all parents and provide an important means to find out about upcoming events and future directions for the school.  Each meeting typically involves asking parents for input in an aspect of our school.  Last month, parents provided input on when to have PD days and Learning Conferences next year.  This week, we asked parents to prioritize events at our school, which will help us shape future in school presenters, Residencies, etc. We hope to see you next month!

    Regards,
    J. Campbell
