Principal's Message

Rich Learning & Opportunities

Happy March! While arguably another short month due to our upcoming Spring Break, it is a month of rich learning and opportunities for students. Please read further into the newsletter for information for upcoming events, as well as regular communications that come from the school and your child’s classroom teacher.
Many of you have heard that the principal of Senator Patrick Burns School, Directora Marlene Krickhan, will be moving to a new school. Sra Krickhan, to me, is both a valued colleague and the dearest of friends, and I have extended to her, on behalf of our community, our sincerest wishes for success at her new school. She has been instrumental in the development of Spanish bilingual program offerings in the CBE, and she and I have worked closely these past 5 years as our Spanish bilingual program at WOM grew. Strong things stay strong, and we know that SPB will continue to be an excellent choice for our students. Sra Krickhan has felt especially close to our community, and has written a message to our families. Please find this message in our newsletter.
We are pleased to share that a lottery was not required for people wishing to attend our school. While interest was high, and continues to be even after the deadline for application, we were able to offer placement for all eligible students who applied in advance of the deadline. Since the deadline passed, however, we have had more applications, for all grades. Just before winter break, all WOM families completed notices of intent, indicating whether or not they would be returning to WOM for 2019-20. If your plans have changed, and your child will be attending a new school in September, please advise the office ASAP.
Thank you for your flexibility in adjusting schedules to allow for changes in our student-parent-teacher conference schedule. It was wonderful to see so many families in our school, despite the cold weather. And, it was inspiring to observe students talk about themselves as learners- what their strengths are, what their next steps in learning are, and what they love most to do and learn about! Please remember that formal conferences are not meant to be the only times that parents and teachers talk about a student and their achievement. Please feel free to contact your child’s teacher…anytime!
In closing, I wish to share a ‘cerebral moment’ I had during our Motivational Magic assembly this week. Some of you may think it profound, others may think “doh ”. Throughout the presentation, the magician (Mr. Steve Harmer) kept asking students to the stage to be assistants. Towards the end, I thought “How does the presenter know how to pick the great kids?”. Then it dawned on me…they’ re all great kids! Thank you for gifting us with your fabulous children, each and every day!
