Principal's Message

Where did 2018 Go!

Like most of you, I too am wondering where 2018 has gone! It seems like only yesterday we were welcoming students and families for the start of the school year, however, when we look at how much our students have grown, as learners and as people, it is clear that September came and went…a long time ago.
As we celebrate student achievement and growth, please be advised that your child will receive his or her first report card for the 2018-19 school year on Tuesday, December 18. Report cards are ‘summative assessment tools’, meaning that they are measures of your child’s achievements in relation to the Alberta Program of Studies thus far. They also connect to the CBE Board of Trustee’s Results Policies, which are clear directions defining student success. https://www.cbe.ab.ca/about-us/policies-and-regulations/Pages/Results-Policies.aspx . Please be advised that the date for dissemination of report cards is strategic- should you have questions, there are a few days in advance of the break for you to come and ask about them! We would appreciate the opportunity for you to express concerns in advance of the break.
November marked the completion of our annual School Development Plan outlining specific direction for instructional and achievement focus. We have two goals this year focusing on numeracy and literacy. This document, along with our Annual Report, which highlights our many achievements from the 2017-18 school year, can be found on our school website.
Registration for kindergarten and Grade 1 for our Spanish bilingual program begins on January 14. Applications for our Spanish bilingual program are being accepted from Monday, January 14 to Tuesday February 12 (12:00noon)
Our Open House will be Thursday, January 10, geared towards perspective families. We will be sending home a flyer for the open house to each family, and will be asking you to share this information with friends/family living within our catchment area who might be interested in their kindergarten or Grade 1 student attending our school. Alternatively, the flyer can be placed in your coffee shop, dentist office, etc. Thanks for your support. Please read further into this newsletter for more information.
Please be advised that, given program accommodation decisions last year:
There will be no regular program at WO Mitchell School. All students wishing to access a regular program school experience, living in Silver Springs, are designated to Silver Springs School.
Grade 5 will be the oldest grade. Current grade 5’s will be designated to Senator Patrick Burns School for Grade 6.
Current Grade 6 students have been designated to their community schools. If another program is being sought (ex. French immersion), please contact the school for directions on how to register your child.
Current Grade 5 students have been designated to Senator Patrick Burns School. If another program is being sought (ex. community school), please contact the school for directions on how to register your child.
On December 4, our Grade 5 students had the opportunity to experience ‘A day in the life at SPB’. Designated “Broncos” (SPB students) came to our school to explain what the day would be like. They gave us instructions to use public transportation and guided us in our excursion to SPB from our neighborhood. At SPB we were welcomed by staff and students. We were guided in tours around the school where we learned about the resources and the learning opportunities that a school like SPB has to offer. SPB and WOM students partnered up for activities and shared their experience in the Spanish Bilingual Program. The day was a success! We thank Principal Krickhan, the staff at SPB, and the students who gracefully hosted our visit. We would also like to thank our partners at Calgary Transit for their ongoing support as CBE students transition to public transportation, and in particular for their help for this fieldtrip.
We are excited to share two exciting residencies for students in January. On the first day back, we will be starting a Martial Arts residency in physical education. Funds to support this residency are provided by our School Council. This program will be offered bilingually. At the end of the month, we will welcome Trickster Theatre Company to offer the first part of our story telling residency. Our School Council as well as Alberta Foundation for the Arts are funding this project.
As we look towards the end of December, please accept my invitation to join us for our Carolling Concert, featuring our Grade 4-6 choir and handbells groups on December 12th. Sra Gray’s adult choir will also be part of this musical celebration. We will have two performances, one for the school at 2:00PM, and one for our community at 7:00PM. Families are welcome to attend both. Our Grade 1-2 Winter Concert will be on December 20th, again with shows at 2:00PM and 7:00PM. Doors for both evening concerts on December 12 and 20 will open at 6:30PM. I would like to recognize, in advance, the countless hours that our children have committed to bring these celebrations to you, and to their talented teachers who have worked with them to ensure their success. Thank you to our talented music teacher, Sra Gray, for her vision, talent, and dedication to our children and our school. These celebrations will be wonderful evenings of music and camaraderie.
On behalf of students and staff at WO Mitchell School, I wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! ! ¡Feliz Navidad y próspero año nuevo!
Susan Coveyduck Principal/Directora
