Principal's Message

January Newsletter

We cannot believe that it is the New Year already!!  Since our last newsletter there have been some staff changes and more coming up as well.  We are delighted to have Mrs. Giard back as our Music Specialist teacher.  Although we are excited to have Mrs. Giard return we are sad to say goodbye to Mrs. Lacey. Mrs. Lacey has done an incredible job during her time here at Abbeydale School and we hope you have a chance to say your good-byes.  We wish her well and hope to see her in the very near future.     As a teaching and learning community we continue our focussed work in assisting students to further develop their decoding and phonemic awareness in relation to literacy.  Teachers are continuing to learn new strategies through our professional development to enhance student learning in this area.  We are also dedicated and committed with our work in the competency of Math, and more specifically estimation and mental math.   With the assistance from our Math Coach, Katie Carter our teachers continue to support students through engagement and multiple strategies to solve problems during our number talks and daily lessons. Our first round of Report Cards will be going home Friday, January 25 at the end of the day.  There are no scheduled parent/teacher interviews.  However, please connect with your child’s teacher if you have any questions or concerns.   We are pleased to announce that from February 4-8 our students will have the ability to work with SoundKreations, a dance residency group around the theme of “Bollywood” dancing. There will be a school performance on Friday, February 8 as students will have the opportunity to share their newly acquired skills to both teachers and parents.  This wonderful opportunity is paid for by our School Society and we thank them very much. We will send more information out once we have met our instructor.   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 three of our families.  Your kindness and generosity is greatly appreciated.   We will be hosting our first School Council Meeting of 2019 on Monday, January 28 at 6pm. We are very pleased with the turn out we have been receiving from our parent community and hope to see many more of you as we discuss important dates and educational matters for the 2019 school year.   The Calgary Board of Education is proud to have a partnership with the Calgary Hitmen and to take part in this month’s special event. Support the Fuel For School breakfast program by purchasing your tickets to the January 25 Calgary Hitmen hockey game. Five dollars from each ticket sold goes towards providing students with a nutritious breakfast. Come have a fun and exciting evening cheering on your local WHL team, while also contributing to a great cause that supports children in our city.  Tickets can be purchased at a discount price and can be found on our website at   We are happy to announce that registration for our 2019/20 Kindergarten program has opened. Please register with our admin secretary, Antonia Pangia at the main office.  Based on our yearly projections we anticipate that next year we will have an AM and a PM class. Our Welcome to Kindergarten Orientation has been set for Friday, May 3. More information to come in our upcoming Newsletters.   Tresa Pedersen Wright                                                  Greg Bennett Principal                                                                        Assistant Principal
