Principal's Message

December Principal Message

​The hallways of Dr. E. W. Coffin are decorated and look very festive as we head into December and the holiday season. Thank you to our parent volunteers who took time to get us into the spirit of the season. 
December is a month of giving and our Grade 5 and 6 students will coordinate an outreach project in support of the Drop-in Center. Dr. Coffin families are encouraged to participate in the fourth annual “Fill a Sock” campaign. Beginning on December 9 through to the 13, we will encourage students and their families to provide various items to “Fill a Sock”. The following types of donations for the socks include items such as: gloves, mitts, hats, lip balm, travel size toiletries (shampoos, lotions, etc.), cough drops, Tums, travel mugs, deodorant (non-alcohol based), brush and combs, socks chocolates and candy, gift cards such as McDonalds, or coffee cards. The Grade 5 and 6 students will take all donated items and will fill each pair of socks with the items collected  With our support, we will ensure that some 1,200 people will wake up to a stocking by their bedside on Christmas morning.  
Our School Development Plan and our Annual Results report are both posted to our school website. This year our School Development Plan (SDP) will focus on three areas for student achievement: Language Arts, Science and Well Being for Learning. Our specific goals will target student achievement in their ability to write to develop, organize, and express information and ideas, developing the skills to inquire and communicate their scientific understanding and the ability to make responsible decisions in their learning. You may access the SDP on our website from the About Us tab, under Our School, if you would like to learn more about our plans for this school year. 
Before we know it 2020 will be here and we will begin registration for our Kindergarten program on January 20, 2020. At this time, it would be helpful for us to hear from families who have a child of Kindergarten age, who is eligible to start Kindergarten in September of 2020. Children can start kindergarten in the fall of 2020 if they turn 5 years old on or before December 31, 2020.This early conversation will help us in planning for our Kindergarten program in the fall. 
December will be a busy month at Dr. E. W. Coffin with lots of events and activities taking place. Our grade three and four students in rooms 4 and 5 are off to the Glenbow Museum on December 9 and the grade two and three students in the Portable will be visiting the Glenbow Museum on December 11.  The “Fill a Sock” campaign will run from December 9-13 and donations will be accepted in classrooms for the week. The School Council will be hosting the annual Festive Evening this year on December 12. This event is a wonderful opportunity for our school families to enjoy some festive music, share ethnic foods, and to come together as a community. Our Spirit Club students have planned a Polar Express spirit day on December 16.Students can wear their favorite festive sweater or pajamas to school for this fun filled day. We will be gathering together as a school on December 17, 18, and 19 at 9 am to sing carols in the Learning Commons. I invite our families to join us on these three days. Several clubs will continue during the month of December: Guitar club for Grade 3 to 6 students, Spirit Club, and Science Fair for Grade 5 and 6 students. The final day of classes before the winter break is December 19. 
At this time, I would like to wish everyone a wonderful holiday season. May you enjoy time with family and friends. 
Together in Education,
