Principal's Message December 2018

​The first three months of the school year have flown by and December is upon us.  November provided a flurry of activity.  Grade 9 Leadership students journeyed to the Calgary Drop In Centre and learned so much about humanity and humility.  The Remembrance Day Assembly/Celebration was very poignant, touching and appreciated.  The Wrestling Season began with a growing contingent of grapplers.  Grade 6 students enjoyed their trip to the Hangar Museum.  Grade 8 ENVOE students also enjoyed their Wall Climbing Trip.  This year’s Artisan’s Fair was another great celebration of community building.  The crafts and goodies were awesome.  Grade 9 ENVOE students enjoyed their Kayaking trip.  At the November School Council Meeting we covered a very heavy agenda including a review of the Accountability Pillar Survey results, our 2018 PAT results, and the leading edge work we are doing with mathematics assessment and reporting, which is a primary focus of our School Development Plan.  All of this information was well received by parents.  Grade 9 Evanston students enjoyed their tour of James Fowler High School.  Parent Student Teacher Conferences were heavily subscribed to.  The Volleyball Season finished off.  Our teams had tremendous success, and a lot to be proud of.  Our Annual Band Camp at Camp Caroline was a great success.  The Poinsettia & Christmas Planter fundraiser for Westcoast and Quebec Trip students was a great success.  The first term Recognition Assembly recognized hundreds of recipients.  Students were recognized for participation in athletics, clubs, and service, and were also recognized with certificates for Commendation (academic) and Humanitarian (Service, Leadership, Citizenship).    Wrestlers enjoyed their first Wrestling Tournament, the Thunder Takedown at Peter Lougheed School.

​​I would like to send special thanks out to all Parents and Guardians for your ongoing support this year.  We continue to work hard at communication and in providing exceptional programs for our students.  Knowing that there are growing pains with new initiatives like PowerSchool, we also appreciate your understanding and patience.  Please continue to contact administration or teaching staff if you have any inquiries.  I look forward to our work together in building a robust learning community.  On behalf of the staff at Simon Fraser I would like to extend our best wishes for a wonderful and happy festive season.
