Principal's Message

February Principal's Message

​February has arrived and we have suddenly been plunged into very cold temperatures. The past two days as the students have arrived to school they have been sent straight indoors out of the cold. We are fortunate that we haven’t had too many ‘blue days’ this winter. I am hopeful by the end of the week our students will be able to continue their environmental learning on Fresh Air Friday. Students should come dressed for the weather and be prepared to head outside for some of the morning.
We had a very successful residency with Teddy Anderson last week and the students did a great job creating and then dancing with the hoops they made. The students learned the importance of kindness and how they can carry that message of hope and joy forward in all that they do. Through his story, The Medicine Wheel Stories of a Hoop Dancer, students learned “that together there is nothing we cannot accomplish”. February will be a month that we will highlight acts of kindness and respect for one another. We will hold a Coffin Cares Assembly at the end of the month on Pink Shirt Day to showcase the many acts of kindness and respect we will undoubtedly witness in our students.
Our School Development Plan has a goal to improve student achievement in their ability to use mathematical reasoning to analyze and solve problems. We will be hosting a math night on February 21 at 6 p.m. for parents and students to explore together the math tasks that students undertake during their math lessons each day. The teachers, as part of our professional learning, have been using a book called Mathematical Mindsets by Jo Boaler to further support this goal.   
February is a short month; however, we have filled the month with learning activities and extra-curricular activities for our students. Our grade three and four classes will be going to the National Music Centre on February 6. Winter Walk Day is officially on February 6 – our classes will be encouraged to do their winter walk during the warmer days of this week – hopefully the weather warms up for this activity. On February 7 the grade five and six students who have been working with Mrs. Saunders in Science Fair Club will showcase their projects at our school Science Fair. The grade three and four students will take part in an in-school field trip presented by Glenbow Ranch on February 12. The Spirit Club has planned another fun Spirit Day for all of us to show our unicorn spirit. February 14 and 15 is the annual Calgary Teachers’ Convention and students do not attend school. February 18 is Family Day and families can enjoy a long weekend.   Our Kindergarten students will celebrate their 100th day in school on February 19 with some fun ‘100’ activities. February 20 is another Fun Lunch with Edo Japan providing the menu. Clay for Kids will be starting a residency with us on February 21 beginning with yard art. Each student and staff will create a small stained-glass piece to add to our front fence where our first yard art stained-glass pieces are displayed. All classes will have a clay lesson with Clay for Kids from February 25 to 28. Room 4 will host Treat Day on February 26. Anti-bullying Pink Shirt Day falls on February 27 and we will hold our first Coffin Cares Assembly of this year at 9 a.m. Along with all these learning activities, we also have our Guitar Club and Chess Club running during the month of February.
As always, thank you for your continued support of the learning and teaching at Dr. E. W. Coffin.
