Principal's Message

November December

​Remembering at G.W. Skene:  Last month the choir and grade four and five students created an amazing Remembrance Ceremony to help us celebrate bravery and reflect on the many men and woman who helped bring peace to our lives.  I was so very proud of all of the students who participated.  Their songs uplifted our hearts; their stories taught us values and their shadow puppet tableau helped us understand and connect to the people and events of the past.  We also are appreciative of all the work behind the scene from our staff, especially Mr. McDermid. 
Fundraising Events:  Our grade five students have been doing some special fundraising to support two different charities: Inn From the Cold and Alberta Animal Rescue Crew Society.  We are so proud of all your hard work and generosity.  You help make Calgary an even better place to be!
We enjoyed sharing learning progress during conferences and seeing so many families participate in the bowling and physical literacy activities set-up in the gym.
This fall the staff have been setting goals for our School Development Plan and are excited about our work to improve student mathematics, reading and self-regulation skills.
On December 12th, we will be having a family dance at our school.  We look forward to visiting with you all and seeing your fancy moves on the dance floor!
 Christina Tuttle, Proud Principal
