Principal's Message

September 2018

Dear Families:
In Indigenous ways of knowing, we say that a thing cannot be understood until it is known by all four aspects of our being: mind, body, emotion, and spirit. Gathering Moss: A Natural and Cultural History of Mosses by Robin Wall Kimmerer
Welcome back to a fresh, new school year. We appreciated all those families who braved the cooler temperatures to join us to celebrate the first day of school and connect as we transition to new classrooms, new grades and new teachers. Your support is greatly appreciated as children learn and remember school routines. We are excited to welcome our 78 new Kindergarten students as they begin their school career. We are also happy to welcome approximately 75 new students to Edgemont. We invite you all to become an active part of our learning community.
This year we will continue to explore our school wide big idea “Ways of Knowing.” We have already begun to engage students in conversations and tasks that will help them to consider what they know, how they know it and how they can show it. We encourage families to continue to take up this idea alongside us and consider how you would answer these questions, along with others that arise over the course of the year. Our grade teams are working with our big idea and the program of studies to build meaningful and engaging curriculum connections. If you would like more information about the Alberta Program of Studies at each grade level please see the website: http://www.learnalberta.ca/content/mychildslearning/)
We also invite you to our Student Learning conferences on September 20 and 21. These conferences provide you with an opportunity to tell us about your child and your goals for the coming year. Please be sure to return the “Parent Questionnaire” that went home the first week, so that your child’s teacher has time to review it before conferences. This document will support your conversations.
The CBE is committed to providing yearly opportunities for staff to transfer schools and some of our staff took advantage of the process this year. We have said a sad farewell to:
Ms. K. Meldrum
Ms. J. Sutherland
Ms. C. Wilson
Ms. C. Fourie
Ms. T. Bates
Ms. M. Patterson
Ms. F. Boudreau (retired)
Ms. P. Zakala (replaced by Mrs. P. Kenny!)
Mr. M. Thomas is no longer teaching Gr 5, but has taken over Ms. Boudreau’s role as Resource Learning Leader.
We would like to welcome back Ms. J. Ang, in Grade 1, who has returned to us after the birth of her son, a year ago. We are also excited to welcome back teachers who started with us part way through last year:
Ms. P. Spencer (Grade 2)
Ms. H. O’Dell (Grade 4)
We would like to welcome our new staff to Edgemont School this year. They have done a wonderful job of learning about our work as a school and of building relationships with students, families and staff from the very first days:
Ms. L. Millar (Grade 1)
Ms. E. Penno (Grade 2)
Ms. K. Medlicott (Grade 3)
Ms. R. Colwell (Grade 4)
Mr. J. Watt (Grade 5)
We are always excited about the possibilities for a new school year as we work with your children to inspire thinking, encourage creativity and take up a growth mindset for learning. Thank you for joining us in this journey.
Sincerely,
Sharon, Bill and the Edgemont Staff
