Principal's Message

October 2019

September was a busy month with many sport teams starting their season and activities at the school. We’ve had a great start and we’d like to th​​ank all of our parents for allowing us to work with your children! We have an amazing learning community at Colonel Irvine School.
 
Students and staff alike have settled well and we have quickly been able to focus on the important work of teaching and learning. It is now one month into school and we trust that your child is continuing to learn and enjoy school. Communication is important to us. As always, you are welcome to contact your child’s teacher, and/or contact Mr. Bylsma, Assistant Principal at msbylsma@cbe.ab.ca or myself, Ms. Ko, Principal at bsko@cbe.ab.ca, or by phoning the office.
 
Thanks to all parents and students that attended “Meet the Teacher” night on September 18. The turnout was fabulous and confirms that parents in the Colonel Irvine community are committed to building a strong partnership with the school and their child’s teachers. We still have a couple of vacant spots on our School Council. Our next meeting is October 8th at 6:30pm. Thanks to our parents for filling in so many different roles. Should you wish to volunteer at the school, and you are most welcome, you will need a police volunteer security clearance and complete an annual volunteer form. Please come to the office to see our admin assistant Ms. J. Gale to complete these. We greatly appreciate all of the volunteer assistance we receive at Colonel Irvine!
 
We held our annual Terry Fox in September with a pep rally organized by our Terry Fox committee of teachers that showcased the history of Terry Fox, his dream and our fundraiser.  Thanks to our Terry Fox committee for organizing our run and pep rally. We raised over $300 in one day through selling tape strips to make Mr. Cheema and Mr. Pich stick to the wall in our pep rally. It’s amazing to see everyone work together to support our cancer fundraiser.  We have raised about $8500 for the Terry Fox Foundation for the past 5 years through our fundraising initiatives. Our goal this year is $2500.00. Keep your ears open for more fundraising events.
Our professional development day on September 20th provided valuable time for our staff to collaborate and gather evidence of student learning. Time was also spent planning the strategies and goals for our students who are on Individual Program Plans (IPP’s) and English Language Learning (ELL) Benchmarks. Parents and guardians of students with an IPP should have been contacted by their child’s key IPP teacher. Please remember, do not hesitate to contact your child’s teachers if you have any queries regarding their educational progress. Teacher email and telephone voicemail information, as well as other useful educational and school-related information, can be found on the school webpage (http://school.cbe.ab.ca/school/ColonelIrvine/Pages/default.aspx).
 
We joined other CBE schools, as well as people around the country in commemorating Orange Shirt Day on Monday, September 30. We held an assembly as a part of this commemoration as well as to let students know that we are connected with the Gord Downie and Chanie Wenjack Fund as a Legacy School. You can find more about the Legacy School program at https://downiewenjack.ca/our-work/legacy-schools-programs/
 
Our first virtue for September, October and November is Belonging and our first Virtue assembly is on November 29th. These are wonderful celebrations and you are most welcome to attend. More information will be sent closer to the date regarding the times. The virtue program at Colonel Irvine includes a Health/Character block period every 2nd Friday that alternates with our Math Block on the other Fridays. Please talk to your child about their daily work in this area.
 
 
Sincerely,
Ms. Bea Ko
Principal​
