Dates to Remember


Principal's Message


The month of January seems to have flown by since our winter break. We have had a month of many exciting events and transitions.  On January 23, we had our Feeder School Tours for incoming grade 5 and 7 students, followed up with an Open House that evening. This was an opportunity for our prospective students and their families to visit our school community and meet teachers and students in action. It was also great for our staff to meet next year’s students and their families. We had over 250 students and parents in attendance at the open house. I would like to acknowledge Mr. Cody Andreason’s time and effort for putting together our fabulous Open House video. If you missed this evening and have questions, please feel free to contact us.
We celebrated the Lunar New Year on January 29th with a Dragon and Lion dance to bring in the Year of the Pig. We had an afternoon of festivities for all students and an evening program to finish off the day of celebration. We hosted over 450 guests at our evening performance. We would like to thank all the many parents (and grandparents) who volunteered their time to help make the day so successful. We had more than 50 volunteers supporting our school learning community. We would also thank the numerous student volunteers and performers for their energy and support. Special thanks to our Mandarin Program Learning Leader, Ms. Angela Litchfield, for spearheading our Lunar New Year committee. Thank you to our staff members who devoted their time into ensuring another successful Lunar New Year celebration. The following teachers were on the planning committee: Ms. Bayda, Ms. Borgeson, Ms. Fenwick, Ms. Lu, Ms. Ly, Ms. Morton, Ms. Wilmott, Ms. Yang, Ms. Yu, Dr. Ma, Mr. Biela, Mr. Chang and Mr. Sundstrom.
 We held our second rounds of Student/Parent/Teacher interviews on January 30 and 31. If you were not able to connect with teachers at that time, please call or email. Parents are encouraged to check Home Logic on a regular basis to ensure that they stay current on their child’s progress.
Our basketball season is also underway with four teams shooting and defending strong. Colonel Irvine students are welcome to come and support our teams during our home games. A parent or adult supervisor must accompany any student wanting to support our teams at other schools. Our coaches are not able to supervise students while coaching.

Please remember that morning supervision by teachers does not begin until 15 minutes before the bell.  If you must drop off your child before that time, remind her/him that they must not roam the school.  Students are also not allowed in the staff room, staff offices, or unsupervised classrooms.​

Thank you for your continued support of our school learning community.
