Principal's Message

Staff Changes, Math Coach and Literacy Goals

I cannot believe that it is the middle of December already!! Since our last newsletter there have been some staff changes and more coming up as well. We are delighted to have Mr. Greg Bennett join our staff in the role of Assistant Principal. Mr. Bennett comes to Abbeydale School with a wealth of knowledge and experience from a variety of school and system perspectives. We are also delighted to have a new Educational Assistant join us, Shaista Kamran. Shaista has been subbing for schools within CBE and is a great addition to our staff. We have been working with a Math Coach, Ms. Katie Carter who was gifted to us from the CBE system downtown. She has been working with our grade two and three teachers to date but soon will move on to work with other teachers. Katie has brought new strategies and assessment tools for us to use with our students in the area of math. For January, we will have a new Educational Assistant to work in our Kindergarten programs; a wonderful gift from the Early Learning team downtown. December 22nd will be Mrs. Giard’s last day as she will be starting her family leave.Though we know she will be returning in the future to continue teaching our music program, we will miss her. We wish her an easy delivery and a joyous time with her little one while she is away. Ms. Tania Sablatash will be replacing Mrs. Giard until the end of the school year; we welcome her to our staff!
As a teaching and learning community we continue our focussed work in assisting students to further develop their ability to comprehend fiction and nonfiction collected works. Students are encouraged to draw connections between their knowledge and the passages they read, determine importance, and engage in visualizing, inferencing and synthesizing to fully understand the material they read. Teachers are continuing to learn new strategies through our professional development to enhance student learning in the area of literacy. We are implementing these strategies when students are reading material in all subject areas. Another area that we are working on is being intentional in our planning of meaningful tasks and clearly articulating to students the purpose of lessons in order to fully engage them in the tasks. It is exciting work and we are definitely seeing increased engagement and improvement in student’s comprehension of passages they read.
Mrs. Park’s class joins the grade three students in having spent a week downtown Calgary at our 2School/Open Minds program. Ms. Retallack’s class will be going in January. We would like to extend a big thank you to our School Parent Society for funding these great opportunities for our students.All students participated in Alien In-Line Skating in November. We had a fantastic instructor who taught everyone new skills! It was amazing to see how well all students did. Thank you again to our School Parent Society for funding this wonderful opportunity for all of our Abbeydale students!
We are pleased to announce that on December 21st we will have some indigenous dancers and drummers from the Siksika Nation performing for us. The performance starts at 1:00pm; please join us if you can.
In the spirit of the season, we want to thank all students, parents, guardians, and staff who contributed to the Mayor’s Drive for the food bank and the holiday hampers we created for two of our families. Your kindness and generosity is greatly appreciated.
On behalf of all the staff and students at Abbeydale School, we wish you a wonderful Winter Break! Our greatest wish for you is that you are able to spend time with your family and friends and that you have peace and joy throughout the season!!! We’ll see you in the New Year!​
