Principal's Message

Welcome to a New Year!

​Welcome to what promises to be an amazing school year!!! September highlights hope, optimism and excitement for all that can be, and we at WOM are most excited to welcome children and families to the start of a new school year. Teachers and support staff have been busily preparing classrooms, creating learning plans and setting goals to ensure ‘a most wonderful school start-up’. And today we welcomed back over 420 students who were excited to see old friends, make new friends, tell stories of summer adventures, and connect with our outstanding staff. There is so much to celebrate!
On behalf of WOM students and staff, and on behalf of the Calgary Board of Education, it is my sincerest pleasure to welcome new and returning students and families to WO Mitchell School. All will attest to how special this school is. As I begin my seventh year as this fabulous school’s principal, I confidently state that there is only one reason why this school is fabulous; it is the people connected to WOM that make it a “Great Place to Grow”! ~ Un lugar excelente para crecer!
In addition to welcoming our students, we welcomed two new teachers who now also call WOM home. We also have a new Facility Operator. Some of our teachers also have new teaching assignments. More specific information about our new staff can be found later in the newsletter, but after our first few days together, I am excited about the energy, enthusiasm, expertise and commitment to student success that all bring to our learning community. I know that the network of adults who support our students is strengthened by their addition to our team.
In the spirit of ‘Welcome to WOM’, and in celebration of the start of the school year, please be sure to mark September 13th on your calendars. On that day, we will hold our 6th annual “Welcome Back Fiesta”, sponsored by our School Council; a continental breakfast (coffee, juice, fruit, pastries, etc.) and entertainment will be available from 7:30-9:00AM, at no cost to families. There will be prizes for children and visual displays. This will also be an opportunity for you to meet your child’s teacher and other members of our staff, if you have yet had the chance to do so. Parents have been planning this event all summer, and it will certainly be an awesome way to start the new school year. Our now infamous ‘bottle trailer’ will also be on site; if you have recyclable bottles lying around your house, perhaps you might consider bringing them to support our School Council’s ongoing fundraising activities.
You have probably figured out already that our School Council​ plays an invaluable role in why our school is so fabulous. This dynamic group of parents, whose sole purpose is to support the learning experiences of students and provide advice to administration, meets monthly, on Monday evenings, at 7:00 PM in the school learning commons. Our School Council co-chairs Mrs. Diana Wolf and Dr. Paul Alvez, run a tight and entertaining meeting. Please consider joining us at our first meeting, Monday, Sept. 16, at 7:00PM.
Wishing you a most wonderful school year. And, we at WOM are most optimistic that it will be the ‘best school year ever’!
