Principal's Message

October 2018

Administration’s Message
Happy Thanksgiving to everyone!  We hope you had a great long weekend with family and friends. 
We would like to welcome two additions to our school staff: Mr. Antonio Carino and Mrs.Stephanie Cruz.  Mr. Carino is an Educational Assistant who is replacing Cheryl Coutts who retired from the Calgary Board of Education in September.  We wish her well in all of her future adventures!  Mrs. Stephanie Cruz (Lajeunesse) has joined our Kindergarten team now that we have divided our kindergarten students into three small classes.  We are enjoying working with them both and look forward to their many contributions to our school community.

Thank you so much to everyone who attended our Welcome Back, Meet the Teacher, Family Barbeque on September 20th.  Our first annual barbeque was well attended and despite the long lines for food, everyone seemed to have a great time.  A special thank you goes to Mo for all of his help that evening.
In regard to our school wide focus for this school year, we will be placing high priority in teaching and learning in the areas of reading, reading comprehension, and developing strategies for mental mathematics and estimation.  Analysis of the June 2018 report card data in comparison to the results from June 2017 indicate that our students made some progress in the area of comprehension as a result of our intentional teaching of the six metacognitive high impact strategies. This year, in Language Arts we are going to focus our attention on teaching specific strategies to assist students with their reading (and continue with the metacognitive strategies to enhance their reading comprehension).  With the wonderful opportunity to have a Math Coach half time, we want to focus our teaching in the area of mental mathematics and estimation; which is a huge part of students’ foundational skills in mathematics.  We will be sharing more information about these two priorities at our October 29th School Council Meeting.
Special Events coming up this month include:
·         Camp at the Tim Horton’s Camp for our grade fives (October 16-19th).  It is an honour that we have been chosen to participate in this four day, three evening camp again as the cost of the camp including transportation is paid for by a generous donor.  Those students who are unable to attend camp will be expected to be at school where they will have the opportunity to participate in activities planned by the grade five teachers.
·         Clubs for students will start on October 22nd.  All of our teachers are leading a club this term so there will be many choices for students to choose from.  Clubs will be held during lunch recess Monday to Thursday, before school or after school.  Students will indicate their top three choices of clubs that are offered and will be placed in one of them.   A notice will come home indicating your child’s club for this term along with the time of day that it is being offered.  We’ll be having a Club Assembly on October 15th to tell the students what clubs are being offered.
·         School Council Meeting Monday, October 29th in the Learning Commons at 6:00-7:30
·         October 31st – Special Treat Day sponsored by our School Council

·         October 31st – students who celebrate Halloween may bring their costume to school in their backpack; costumes will be allowed to be put on after lunch.  No masks or imitation weapons will be allowed at school.  Classroom teachers may plan special activities for students to participate in that are directly connected to our Programs of Study and curriculum.  Students who do not celebrate Halloween or who do not wish to participate in special activities will be offered other activities to participate in.​
