Principal's Message

2019-2020 Wrap Up

​Dear G.W. Skene Families:  
 We enjoyed seeing the students in their year-end class meetings this week and it was especially fun to reflect on some of the great learning that happened over the year during the Grade 5 Farewell.  We wish our Grade 5 students all the best in their new adventures in Middle School!
 Below are a few important reminders to wrap up the school year. 
 Report Cards 
Families can access report cards online.  Please see our school website for more information: http://school.cbe.ab.ca/school/GWSkene/about-us/news-centre/_layouts/ci/post.aspx?oaid=652e5a28-7842-4b51-a775-258d7a3c8ce7&oact=20001  
 iPad Returns 
All loaned devices should now be returned.  Families will be asked to pay for any lost or damaged items, including missing charging cords or power blocks.  Please take an extra look around to ensure all of these items have been returned. 
 Last Chance to Pickup Student Items
Monday is the last chance for students to pick up learning supplies and personal items including clothing and foot ware.  All remaining items, including those in our Lost and Found will be thrown away, recycled, shredded or donated on June 30. 
 
Staffing Update We are excited that Terra Xavier will be joining our teaching staff this fall.  In her current role as an Area Literacy Strategist, Ms. Xavier has lead numerous professional development sessions for our staff and she has worked with teachers and students in classrooms to further develop reading and writing skills.  We are very excited that she will be teaching with us next year.  
 September School Start-up
To stay updated on information and plans regarding school start-up, families are encouraged to check their email regularly during August.  Information will also be posted on our school website. School starts September 1, 2020.
 The staff at G.W. Skene hope each of you has a healthy, restful and fun summer break!  
 Best wishes, 
 Christina Tuttle, 
Proud Principal ​
