Principal's Message

December News

​Oki PFS Families,
 
December is here!! Happy Winter Solstice
 
Happy December students and staff! November was a very busy month at PFS. Our student lead Remembrance Day service was the highlight of our month. We were so proud our PFS Performance Drum group who provided all traditional Blackfoot and Cree songs for our ceremony and to Colonel Walker choir for providing the beautiful songs. We were so grateful for the blessings and stories shared by Saa’kokoto. 
 
Thank you so much to those parents who took time out of their day to attend our monthly Parent Advisory Council meeting. Parents learned about our focus for our School Development Plan: Reading to explore, construct, and extend understanding – Students will be assessed for reading and placed in ability groupings to assist in developing strategies for decoding, fluency and comprehension.  Students will receive 1 hour of daily reading instruction in small group settings. Mathematical procedural fluency - Students will be able to translate different representations of numbers (e.g. blocks, number lines, numbers); subitizing of numbers and make generalize patterns in number operations (e.g. adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing) and understand which mathematical strategies to use, when to use them, and why.
 
We are very excited to announce Piitoayis Family School has been selected to receive a 2018 grant in the amount of $8,000 for the “Language and Technology Enrichment” project. This project will provide the technology and support for language (Blackfoot and Cree) acquisition. Five classes will participate in the project: Ms. Danica, Ms. Nancy, Ms. Heather, Ms. Megan, and Ms. Theresa’s reading groups will spend the next seven months learning conversational phrases from both languages. Exciting!!
 
We have many special events for the month of December. There will be a change to the Winter Solstice Celebration this year. Our celebration will begin at 10:30 a.m. this year. Our students will entertain you with Christmas music filled with Indigenous languages and reader’s theatre presentation of Napi and the Wolves. Please RSVP to Ms. Sharon ASAP.  Reminder to parents to please arrive on time (10:30 a.m.) and stay for the entire concert out of respect for all our students and teachers.
 
Great Events Catering and Brown Bagging for Lunch generously provide a full turkey and fixings lunch for our student and staff, as well as a light lunch box for parents and guests.  Creator has truly blessed PFS with the many organizations and people who help make our school a safer and caring place for our students. Hand to heart in gratefulness!

December 12th:  Winter Solstice Celebration
December 13th:  Surprise guests in the morning
December 19th:  Santa comes to PFS/ Meatball Sub Day
