Principal's Message

June is Arriving in a Smoky Haze

Dear Families:
June is arriving in a smoky haze and we are feeling for our fellow Albertans, living with the forest fires in the north. We recognize that our expereinces are a much milder version of what they are coping with each day and once again, are reminded of the ways the land teaches us.
Our final month of school will be busy time as we:
Welcome Ms. Lori Holford, as the new Principal of Edgemont for the 2019-2020 school year.
Celebrate our many volunteers at the Volunteer Tea on June 7. We so appreicate all the time and energy our families provide as you allow us to support so many more expereinces for students with your skills, time, energy and resource contributions. You make Edgemont a wonderful place to work and learn.
Pprepare for our final report cards of this school year. This gives us an opportunity to share our assessment of each child’s learning in relation to the Alberta Program of Studies.
In June Canada is celebrating National Indigenous History Month. At Edgemont, over the past five years we have begun taking up the work of Education for Reconciliation slowly and thoughtfully. We continue to learn as individuals and as a community of educators, and have asked for the support of others to guide our work.
Most recently, we were thrilled that 19 families joined Frank and Darcy Turning Robe, who taught us to make 17 hand drums for our school music program. Frank opened the evening with a blessing for our work and shared the importance of acknowledging the Creator and the elk as they make both our gathering and our drum creation possible. Frank and Darcy also shared their Turning Robe song, which inspired us to be open and mindful as we worked and learned together. The drums are now drying in our Learning Commons and we cannot wait to play them!
At Edgemont, we have spent time considering the ways that we create school and classroom environments that support and inspire learning. We talk about the ways we set up our spaces and provide students with various areas that support different kinds of work and thinking. We discuss ways we can share student work, both process and product, the ways we explain why our work matters and the ways we invite student voice so that children can see that their thinking matters at school and at home.
For our May 31 Early Dismissal, our staff visited Niitsitapi Learning Centre Niitsitapi li tass ksii nii mat tsoo kop: A Place of Learning for All Indigenous People. We explored the way this beautiful school has designed and used space to celebrate culture, invite collaboration and build understanding. This experience provides us with another opportunity to look at our Edgemont learning spaces with fresh eyes. It invites us to think about the messages we are sharing, what our space shows we value and how we invite our students and families into this remarkable place.
In addition to our ongoing work, the month of June also provides us with opportunities to:
Take our Grade 4 students to Tuscany School to watch the Tuscany students’ performance of “Na’as Heartbeat”
Bring our students together for our fourth storytelling experience with Elder Saa’kokoto as we celebrate the spring Solstice Honour National Indigenous Peoples Day on June 21 by gathering as a school, on the Edgemont field overlooking our community and west to the mountains, to Acknowledge the Land.

Students will also be participating in a variety of Indigenous Games outside during Sports Day on June 21
We appreciate your support as we take up this work with your children.
Sincerely,
Sharon and the Edgemont Staff
