Principal's Message

April Administrative Message

​Administrative Message
As school leaders, we continuously reflect on our leadership practices and our impact.  We collect data/evidence, engage in conversations and use research-driven information to inform our actions. Recently, we read an article, “How Do Principals Influence Student Achievement?” by the UChicago Consortium of School Research.  Below is a visual that speaks to our work as a collective.  If School Principals create Strong Learning Climates, supported by Teacher Leadership then school-wide goals will improve.  Simple, but yet a very powerful focus.  
In staffing news, we would like to formally welcome Mrs. Josephine Cesario as our new Administrative E Secretary.  Josie joins the Hillhurst team with a variety of career experiences both in the public and private sector.  She is very enthusiastic and excited about her new role.  Please be sure to take a moment to introduce yourself and give her a warm Hillhurst welcome! 
This school year, we have had a number of Celebration of Learning events in the evening.  Many families have had an opportunity to celebrate in their child’s learning.  We wanted to take a moment and share some feed-back we have received from families in from the Celebration of Learning evening events:
Great! So fun! Best part is seeing the enthusiasm in XXX about her work.
I’m so impressed by the variety of learning experiences.  I especially liked the Anne Frank biography and the Mt. St. Helen’s Volcano. 
Really enjoyed it, kids have worked super hard!
Love the crime scenes project!
Robotics – look at all the coding!
French – so personalized! Really helps to engage the students.
Music – Wow! My son has no musical background and he played a piece and sang it!
Thank you for all your hard work!
A group gathering with families and students will give students more confidence.
The math strategy game was very good.  We enjoyed the robotics and it was cool to see her creativity.
On behalf of the staff, thank you for attending the Celebration of Learnings, thus far and we look forward to the remaining ones for the year.
In May and June of this year, all Grade 6 students throughout the province will write provincial achievement tests in Language Arts, Mathematics, Science, and Social Studies. Results from these tests will provide Alberta Education, school administrators, teachers, parents, students, and the public with information about what students know and can do in relation to provincial standards at the end of Grade 6.
Grade 6 ELA Part A – May 8
Grade 6 ELA Part B – May 13
Grade 6 Math Part A – June 14
Grade 6 Math Part B – June 12
Grade 6 Social Studies – June 11
Grade 6 Science – June 17
As we head into Spring Break, we hope that you will enjoy your time with family and friends and that you and your child (ren) will have time to enjoy some fresh spring air!
 
Regards,
Prem Randhawa, Principal
