Principal's Message

November Updates

It was great to see so many Battalion Park and Griffith Woods families at our School Council Halloween dances. This year we split the evening into two dances, Grade K-3 and Grade 4-6. As a result, more students were able to attend. Our gratitude extends to our many parent volunteers, and especially to the tireless efforts of our organizing committee. Rumour has it that one of our Grade 3 girls woke up on Saturday morning after the dance and asked when we would be having our next one! 
To students, we understand that social traditions, such as Halloween are fun, however at an adult level it is important that we recognize that these events connect us together and help us strengthen our community. With the opening of Griffith Woods School and all of the changes this brings, we have an opportunity to model strength, confidence and resiliency for our children. Through our talk and through our actions we can show our children that, regardless of the color of your school shirt, we still belong to a strong, supportive, and cohesive community. I have often said that one of Battalion Park School’s greatest advantages is the strong community of adults who support the growth of our children. Thanks for your Hawk Pride. 
Our Grade 6 students have been engaged in learning about significant events, challenges, hardships, and successes from the wars in which Canadian men and women were involved. These students will be hosting one of our most important ceremonies of the year – Remembrance Day. Through poetry, creative writing, art and song our students strive to convey their learning in a meaningful way at our Remembrance Day Assembly. 
We hope that all Grade 6 parents can join us on Nov. 9, 2017 to celebrate this learning and recognize this special day. In addition to our regular Communication folders, School Messenger emails have become one of our main tools that we use to communicate with you. 
Swim lessons have been a success for our Grade 1-3 students. Staff at the swimming pool have commented on how well our students listen and how open they are to feedback. 
Teachers communicate student learning in a variety of formal and informal ways. Informally, teachers can use phone calls, emails or send home student work to share learning progress. Formally, we also host Learning Conferences and send home report cards twice a year. On Nov. 16 and 17, 2017, we are inviting parents for another round of Learning Conferences at Battalion Park. Our first conferences in September were designed to connect the teacher-student-parent partnership and for us to learn more about your child.
At our November conferences, teachers will provide parents and guardians with information to describe how their children are progressing in relation to Alberta Education Programs of Study as well as Citizenship, Personal Development, and Character in and through Learning. 
Thanks for your continued support.
