Principal's Message

Newsletter | May 2019

With the weather changing so quickly these days I never know if I should be pulling out my sunscreen or winter boots! Hopefully the forecast cooperates a bit more and we can start to have some more spring-like weather soon. 
Thank you to the many parents who were able to attend our recent grade 1/2 literacy morning. It was a wonderful event focusing on the literacy skills and activities that will most benefit our grade one and two students. The teachers and staff put a lot of time and work into the morning so it was especially appreciated that we had so many parents who were able to attend. If you were unable to attend, and didn’t receive a handout in your child's backpack please feel free to connect with your child’s teacher to get one. It offers many ideas for supporting literacy at home.
We also had a great turnout of parents to the assembly hosted and presented by the grade 3 and 4 students in rooms 13, 14 and 15 this past Thursday afternoon. The students did an amazing job!  We have many other exciting events coming up over the next several weeks as well. Please check out the calendar on the website to ensure you don’t miss anything!
 
School Council
One important event is the upcoming School Council meeting on May 13th at 6p.m.. School Council is made up of the school leadership team, teachers and parents from the school who meet monthly to discuss issues and priorities at the school. The Council is an essential part of the success of the school and is one way that parents can stay informed and involved. All parents are welcome to attend any and all meetings. Some parents may only be able to attend occasional meetings and even attending one meeting a year is appreciated. There are also key positions that are filled each year by parents who are willing to commit to attend most months. These positions include:
•      a chairperson (who organizes and runs the meetings)
•      a vice chairperson (who assists with organizing and running the meetings)
•      a secretary (who takes notes about what is discussed and decided)
•      a treasurer (who balances the financial records).
The meetings themselves are typically fun and informal and are a great chance to meet other parents and provide valuable input to make Rundle the best possible school. Over the past number of years we have had a small but dedicated team of parents who have filled all of these roles and provided great input but their children have gradually been moving out of the school. We currently only have two parents consistently attending the School Council meetings and one of these parents will no longer have children at our school next year. Without new parents coming forward to be involved, we may not have the input we need. As a school, we know how strongly parents and families value education and our school and we would ask that you consider if you can commit one hour a month to help Rundle continue to be the fantastic school we want for our children. If you have any questions about the meetings or what would be required, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
 
Next Year
It is that time of year where we are eagerly anticipating many fun and exciting events for this school year and also starting to look ahead to the next school year. Kindergarten registration opened in January and we are still accepting registrations for students to start in August 2019. If your child will be 5 by March 1, 2020 they are eligible to start kindergarten in August. If you haven’t already registered, please do so as soon as possible. Our welcome to kindergarten event is coming up on May 23rd from 6-7:30p.m. and we wouldn’t want anyone to miss it.
Information about transportation registration for next year will be coming out this week. In order for your address to be taken into account when choosing the locations for the bus stops next year, it is important that you pre-register by the deadline. It is also essential that your correct address is in our system. If you have moved over the course of the year, or know you will be moving before the start of the school year, please contact us in the office to ensure we have your current and correct address on file.
We are starting to make plans for staffing for next year and although we would love for all of our students to be staying with us next year, we know sometimes children will be changing schools due to a variety of reasons. If you know your child will be attending another school next year, due to a move, getting into a program of choice, or any other reason, we would really appreciate it if you could let the office know by June 1. This will ensure we have the transfer process done smoothly so student records are ready to go at the end of June. If you find out after this date, that’s fine too. Just give us a call in the office and let us know. If you have applied for registration at a private or charter school but will not know if you have been accepted until closer to September, we would love to know that too. If you live within the designated boundary for Rundle School, we will always have a place for your children here but it is helpful to know how many students might be attending elsewhere in the fall.
This is also the time of year that we start considering class lists and student placement for next year. We appreciate the trust that parents place in us to choose the class and teacher that will best support their child’s learning needs. We consider the needs of all of our students when we create class lists and we consider many factors when doing so. We strive for a balance of students in each class and try to fit students with classmates that will help them learn. We know that there may be times where parents have a particular wish for a learning environment for their student. If you have a request for next year’s placement (teacher, classmate etc.) that is due to the learning needs of your child, please submit it in writing before June 1. We will consider the requests before creating the class lists but cannot guarantee that we can accommodate them all. Changes in the fall are very difficult to arrange so if you have a request to make, please make sure it is received by June 1.
Mrs. Thibeau and I are always available to provide assistance with any questions or concerns so please don’t hesitate to contact Mrs. Van Oosten to set up a meeting or call us in the office at 403-777-6760.
 

Sincerely, Sue Rutherford​
