Principal's Message

June 2019

Where has the year gone?
Wow!  It’s June and we have now entered the final month of the 2018-2019 school year.  Where has the time gone?  Well, it’s gone many places:
It’s gone with our Grade 5 and 6 students to Outdoor School and to the zoo with Grade 2.  It’s gone to Telus Spark with our Grade 3’s and to the Glenbow Museum with the Grade 1’s.  It’s going this week with the Grade 4’s to the Mayor’s Environmental Expo, and with the Kindergarten students to the Corn Maze.  It’s gone with students to the Young Writer’s Conference, Police School, Aggie Days, the Patrol Picnic, and the Union Cemetery.
Back at Midnapore School, the learning has been engaging and challenging.  Students have gained knowledge in such diverse topics as Rocks and Minerals, Small Crawling and Flying Animals, Canadian Provinces, Countries and Customs around the world, Flight and Aerodynamics, Families and Communities, and Hearing and Sound.  Our students took part in the provincial election through Student Votes and helped to take care of our earth by initiating a Terracycle initiative, helping with composting and recycling as well as helping to facilitate the installation of solar panels on the school roof.
February was devoted to the development and celebration of literacy learning as students took part in Literacy Month activities.  These included a Dress as a Storybook Character Day, Drop Everything and Read events, and Guess The Teachers’ Favourite Books.  During our school-wide used book swap, each student was able to take home a new-to-them book for their own personal libraries.
Teachers and support staff have implemented a number of additional strategies and tools to help students achieve more of their learning potential.  These include the implementation of ENERGY class each morning, movement stations throughout the hallways and SPARK bikes in the portables and the Learning Commons. 
Parents are key partners in the learning at Midnapore School.  We treasure our volunteers and hope they felt our sincere appreciation at our annual Volunteer Tea in May.  Volunteers have helped in a myriad of ways from flipping pancakes at the Welcome Back Pancake Dinner to reading with students each day.  Our School Council has supported our school with their guidance and suggestions as well as setting up extra-curricular activities, special cultural events like Chinese New Year activities and fundraising for residencies, for additional teaching and learning resources and supporting families in financial need.
Parents also had an opportunity to learn at Midnapore School this year with the introduction of our Community Parenting Education Program in conjunction with Hull Services.  Many families took part in this course that took place once a week for 8 weeks in total.  The response was fantastic and we will be offering this course again for parents during the new school year.
Our staff have continued their learning as well.  We have taken part in professional development sessions focused on brain development, strengthening mathematical knowledge and skills,  literacy development and furthering our understandings of what it means to promote a strength-based approach to teaching and learning. We also shared best teaching practices in the area of language acquisition.  Teachers were involved in grade team meetings, meetings with teachers from other schools as well as multi-grade professional learning communities to share and learn from one another.
As we come to the end of the school year, and I reflect on my first year here at Midnapore School, I am incredibly proud of the work of our students, staff and entire learning community.  Midnapore School is truly a great place to learn!
