Principal's Message

December Principal Message

​Greetings to the Senator Patrick Burns Community!
 November was a fantastic month, full of many learning activities.  SPB students were able to participate in educational opportunities such as visiting the Royal Tyrell Museum, volunteering at the Mustard Seed, learning at Telus Spark and the new Calgary Central Library, as well as participating in the Remembrance Day activities and assembly.  I would like to take a moment to thank all the teachers that continually make these enriched learning opportunities possible.  On behalf of the staff at SPB, I want to thank all volunteers that selflessly give of their time and talents for the betterment of all.  You are amazing adults that are setting an ideal example of good citizenship for all SPB students.  Your service at SPB is always noted, especially when the volunteers encounter challenging and unforeseen situations.  Thank you for all you do for the students.
Of course, December is a shorter month for classes.  We only have three weeks of classes before students are off for the Winter Break.  While I know students and staff are certainly looking forward to a much-deserved break from the rigors of the classroom, I want to take a moment to make a suggestion to all SPB families.  All students, regardless of grade level, need to keep up with their literacy learning, even during Winter Break.  It is my hope that parents and guardians will help their kids to carve out 20 minutes of reading each day during the break.  Students that make reading a regular part of their daily routine will likely have an easier time transitioning into the demanding reading expectations of high school.  Normalizing a predictable, constant time for reading is a learning investment that will certainly pay-off in the near future.  As a quick aside, tomorrow from 6-8pm, some students and staff are participating in a fundraiser at the Dalhousie Chapters Indigo.  Any books purchased during this time slot will contribute to a school fundraiser aimed at acquiring more books for the school.  I encourage all SPB families to come out and make some book purchases on December 5th.
Thanks for all you do for the students.  Have a great Winter Break!
Joel Leavitt​
