Principal's Message

Welcome to 2019-20 School Year

We wanted to welcome you to G.W. Skene for the 2019-2020 school year.  Leah MacMillan and I are very excited to meet you and your children on Thursday morning! We have heard many great things about learning at G.W. Skene and can’t wait to be a part of it.    This year our classes are organized into multi-aged grade teams with two Grade 3 classes, two Grade 3/4 classes and 5 Grade 4/5 classes.   As construction in the former Learning Village is still underway, Ms. Nevelos and Mr. Trinh’s classes will be located in room 11.  They will enjoy having the stage to use as a flexible learning space as needed.  The bathrooms located across from the Gym will be tarped off to students for the next few weeks while the final stages of construction are completed.  This tile in these spaces is quite the work of art and looks fantastic!    Please read the important information below in regards to the school year. Much more information will come out on our website, emails and newsletters throughout the year.   EARLY DISMISSALS: We have an early dismissal each Friday at 11:55 am. Please mark this on your calendars. If you are picking your children up, please be here by 11:55 am.   EMAIL: We regularly communicate information about the school through email. It is vital we have your current email address on file. Please call the school at 403-777-8150 or come into the office to update your phone numbers and email with our office staff.   BLOGS: We do not have agendas and teachers communicate student learning, information and classroom activities through teacher blogs. Please check our website for teacher blog links. Our website should be updated in the next few days. Or you can Google ‘G. W. Skene’ and it’s the first website that appears.   BREAKFAST CLUB and SUPERVISION: We have made some changes this year and breakfast club does not begin until 8:30. THERE IS NO SUPERVISION BEFORE 8:30 so students can’t be dropped off until this time. Please ensure your student is not arriving to school before 8:30 am. Students arriving after 8:30 can go to the gym for a provided breakfast.   LUNCH and SNACKS: Please ensure your child has a snack and lunch each day. In cases where no food can be provided from home, we will provide basic snacks and lunches to the students. We know that eating healthy full meals allow students to have more success in their learning.   POWERSCHOOL: The Calgary Board of Education is using a new system this year called PowerSchool. You can find student information, feedback from teachers, booking conferences schedules etc. on this tool. Please check out our website for more information and to set up your account.   Thank you so much for your support. We look forward to an amazing year.   Mrs. Christina Tuttle, Principal & Ms. Leah MacMillan, Assistant Principal G. W. Skene School
