Principal's Message

June 2017

​As this year draws to a close, preparations for next year begin. At Abbeydale much is yet to be done. Numerous events and varied learning experiences will continue through the month of June.
Recently we recognized our numerous volunteers for their many contributions. To those of you who were unable to attend, on behalf of the staff and students, thank you for sharing your gifts of time, commitment and generosity.
Our school-wide Celebration of Learning held June 2 was a tremendous success and very well attended by parents, extended family and our neighborhood daycare! Students were excited to share their work with visitors. We know the importance of the arts in learning and developing and capturing the imagination. The eloquent storytelling that was shared in performance, oral storytelling, drawing and cartooning spoke to the level of engagement this work created as well as the level of achievement demonstrated by each of the students.
We are appreciative of the support from our School Council and our school community in supporting the residencies which we have enjoyed throughout this year that contribute greatly to learning.
Our school patrols have been a diligent and committed team this year. Thursday, June 8 they will attend the School Patrol picnic sponsored by AMA. Abbeydale School patrollers will be recognized during the program for achieving the GOLD standard of excellence for their work. Congratulations to our team and to Mrs. Park and Ms. Retallack for their leadership. We extend our thanks to the parents of these students who have supported them in being punctual and committed to this very important leadership role.
Abbeydale School has a few organizational changes for next year. The first being a change from full-day to half-day Kindergarten programming. The second is, new bell times. Next year school will begin at 8:05 AM with a dismissal time of 2:35 PM. Lunch will be from 12:00 to 12:45. Friday early dismissal days are 8:05 to 12:30. Our AM Kindergarten hours will be 8:05 to 10:43 AM and our PM hours will be 11:57 to 2:35 PM.
Students will be receiving report cards on June 29 following our Sports Day, with an early dismissal time of 2:00 on this day. If your child will not be in attendance on this day you may provide the office with a self-addressed stamped envelope for us to mail the report, or you may visit us in the office beginning August 10 to pick it up at that time.
We look forward to welcoming our students and families back again on August 15 to the start of another wonderful school year.
Wishing you a safe and fun filled summer break.
Sincerely,
Lynette Zapp
