Dear Parents & Guardians,

On Wednesday, May 20, we will be holding our second school council meeting via SKYPE. If you are interested in attending, please send me an email so I can send you the link to the Skype meeting. Thank you.

Sadly, there will be NO kindergarten orientation this year due to COVID19. Please share with families and friends who have a kindergarten student starting at CWS in the fall. Thank you.

French as a Second Language at CWS

Starting in September, we will be having our Grade 4, 5, 6 students attend FSL lessons of 40 minutes - four times a week (Monday to Thursday). This will be considerably more than this year, as we ‘dappled our toes’ in FSL. 

In September, we will be following the Alberta Education guideline for the Grade 4-9 instructional minutes for FSL. Personally, I’m very excited as this means that our Grade 6 students will be in an excellent position to go into Late French Immersion for Grade 7 at Elboya School! Because of this, we will be looking for a new staff member to join us who is fluent in French.

School Budget

I will be sharing staffing updates/changes at the school council meeting on Wednesday next week.


Hope this finds you and your families well. Spring has sprung. This is a long weekend and I hope you will be enjoying much time outside in the sunshine!


Warm Regards,

Meike Thomsen,
