Principal's Message

September/October 2018

Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year! Our start up has been fantastic and amazing learning is happening in the classrooms every day. The teachers are continuing to set out expectations and routines that will optimize student learning. Thank you for your support of the school and the direction we are headed together as learners.
Thank you to those who participated in our parent teacher conferences on August 30 and 31. It was great to see you and we hope you found this time valuable. If you ever have any questions or concerns about your child please contact your child’s teacher through email. All email address links are on our website.
A calendar was sent home that outlines all of the upcoming events for the next two months. Students will be celebrating Terry Fox, Orange Shirt Day, Halloween and many other exciting events. Grade 5 students will also have the opportunity to participate in their first outdoor school experience at the end of October. More info will be going home to parents regarding that soon.
Mindfulness continues to be a large focus at Skene. Students participate in daily mindful moments and learn about how to be in the present. Please take some time to discuss this with your child and have them practice with you at home.
Many parents and guardians ask us how they can support the school. There are two answers to this question: 1) Volunteer and 2) Join school council. If you are interested in volunteering please contact the main office. We ask all interested parents to join our school council, which is on the 3rd Thursday of each month. Our next council meeting is September 20 at 5:30 pm in the G. W. Skene Learning Commons. Please come and join us, we will serve light refreshments as well.
We wish everyone a fantastic Fall! Please remember to refer to your calendar and our website for all important information about school events.
