Principal's Message

April 2019


  “Teaching is the greatest of arts since the medium is the human mind and spirit”. -  John Steinbeck   The warmth has returned and brought that ever important sense of renewal and growth with it.  We have emerged from the darkest of days and are ready for the final few months of the school year.    We are a culture of learning at Killarney and we take every opportunity to be curious and to create an environment that encourages risks, mistakes, and progress.  Every Friday afternoon, teachers meet to have conversations that foster their learning.  They share their vulnerability.  They give feedback for learning.  They ask questions that often can’t be answered.  They engage in a process that has great impact in the classroom.  They seek ways to develop the whole child and they care far deeper than anyone can really realize.  They are lifelong learners and are committed to the success of every child.  Every child, every day, no exceptions.    We look forward to our April 22 professional learning day with our sister Montessori schools, Captain John Palliser and Lake Bonavista.  We will be engaging in learning from our land, each other, and connecting our Montessori practice to our curriculum.   Our students have many opportunities to shine and our Orff the Wall evening at the Jack Singer Concert Hall is one of the highlights of our year!  When we consider the real life applications to our curricular work it is events such as Orff the Wall that provide students with authentic learning.  These are truly the moments we remember.   This month we also bid our beloved Assistant Principal, Mrs. McCrory, farewell as she heads into a Principalship.  She has been a huge influence on our Killarney school community and will be greatly missed.  I think of all the times she could be found sitting and reading with a child in a quiet corner in the school. Her work with our Calgary Reads volunteers as well as our system resource supports has been a gift and will continue thanks to her diligence and organization.  Please be sure to stop by and wish her good luck before April 19th.   During our April Parent Council meeting we will share a bit about our budget and the process involved in allocating our funds to ensure the greatest opportunities for our students.  We will be asking for your feedback and wonders as we begin to make decisions for our 2019-20 school year.    Our school community is strong because of the strength of our connections and we thank you for your belief and commitment to our Montessori program.  Wishing you all a warm, sunny April!   With gratitude, Bonnie
