Welcome Back

Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year and to the “House of OrAnge!”  One of the most frequently asked questions from new Abe students is, “Why Orange?  Are we a colour or a fruit?” 

OrAnge is an attitude – a state of mind! 

 

The blend of red and yellow, orange is a mixture of the energy associated with red and the happiness associated with yellow.  Orange is associated with meanings of joy, warmth, heat, sunshine, enthusiasm, creativity, success, encouragement, change, determination, health, stimulation, happiness, fun, enjoyment, balance, freedom, expression, and fascination.  Orange promotes a sense of general wellness and emotional energy that should be shared.  Colour theory studies show the colour orange can create physical effects such as increased hunger, heightened sense of activity, increased oxygen supply to the brain, increased contentment, and enhanced assurance.  Orange is also said to help aid decision making, and enhances happiness, confidence, and understanding. 

Abe students embody all these positive characteristics of the colour and what it represents.  We are OrAnge!   Whether it is Academics, Athletics, the Advocate, DebAte Club, the Fine & Performing Arts, GSA, or the many social Action initiatives our students embrace, the OrAnge spirit is reflected in all we do and there is something for everyone at Abe!  As we commence a new school year, I encourage you to find your niche and get involved.  Believe it or not, three years go by in the blink of an eye and your high school experience is, in large part, what you make of it!  If you don’t find your place of belonging right away, please talk to us.  We’d love to help you make connections with like minded peers through clubs, committees or sport and if you’re interested in starting something new, we’d love to hear that too! 

I look forward to meeting you or reconnecting and am excited about the year ahead.  It’s going to be Abe Awesome! 

Together, we put the “heart” in Aberhart!

December 2018

As we wind down the last week of classes before the Winter Break, I’d like to take this opportunity to wish you & your families a peaceful and joyous holiday!  We look forward to coming together as a school community on Friday, December 21st, to celebrate a long standing Abe tradition . . . Turkey Fest!  Classes will end at noon and staff and participating students will enjoy a turkey dinner, catered by the Culinary Arts students at James Fowler High School.  One of our entrepreneurial students, Sedrica Doerksen, will also be selling homemade sweets at the event so bring some pocket change if you have a sweet tooth!

Students are encouraged to take a healthy brain break over the holidays. When we return from Winter Break, there is a week of classes from Monday, January 7th to Friday, January 11th followed by the exam period (January 14th – 30th).   There are no exams on January 17th and 18th.  These are optional “flex days” where students have the opportunity to plan how they will use their time in the most constructive way to meet their individualized learning needs.  To allow students to make informed choices, each discipline will provide a schedule of learning opportunities such as tutorials, review sessions and study skills workshops which will be posted to the web site and in the school.  Students Report cards will be available in PowerSchool on Thursday, January 31st and will only be printed if requested.  The January report card will provide a summative grade for each course completed in Semester 1. 

Once again, I wish you a wonderful holiday & look forward to welcoming the students back in 2019!​

Sincerely,

Tamie Annis-Johnson
