Principal's Message

March / April Newsletter

​Administration’s Message
We cannot believe that it is March already; this year has been flying by!!  It is fantastic to see the growth and progress all of our students are making here at Abbeydale School.   Although we are sad to say good-bye to Mrs. Lacey we are excited to welcome back Mrs. Giard to our Abbeydale Community.  Mrs. Giard was away on Family Leave for the past year and is a very familiar face to our Abbeydale students.      Our School Council and Parent Society graciously supported the dance residency that occurred in the month of February.  Our students had a dance class every day for a week with their dance instructor from SoundKreations in the genre of Bollywood Dance.  The residency culminated with a performance by every class where they were able to creativity display their newly acquired dance moves!   Our grade three students made us all very proud when they went to the Be Brave Anti-Bullying Hitman Game on February 27th.   This wonderful opportunity was paid for by our School Council.  Students learned a dance prior to going and danced with everyone else at the Saddledome that day.  The next day was Anti-bullying day; during which many students and staff wore pink shirts in support of this important day.  Prior to recess we had an assembly during which we reviewed the definition of bullying “repeated and hostile or demeaning behaviour by an individual in the school community where the behaviour is intended to cause harm, fear or distress to one or more other individuals in the school community, including psychological harm or harm to an individual’s reputation. Bullying can take different forms including: physical –pushing, hitting; verbal – name calling, threats; social – exclusion, rumours; cyber – using digital technology to harass, demean or threaten“.  We spoke about how we want our school to be free of all bullying this day and every school day, had demonstrations about what bullying is and what it is not, listened to a few grade three and five students speak about how they feel about bullying, and then all students and staff performed the dance our students participated in at the Hitman game.    Format this paragraph and the next one please to line up with those above. We do hope you will all be able to come to the March “student-led” conferences.  Please note the conferences will be held on Thursday, March 21st 4:00 pm – 6:45 pm and Friday, March 22nd 9:00 am – 11:45 am. During the conferences, your child will have a chance to talk to you about their learning and show you some examples of their work and “lead” you through the processes of their learning. We encourage all parents to attend and share in this celebration of learning. Please plan to spend approximately 15 minutes with your child. Please book your appointment with your child’s teacher through School Conference Manager accessed through your CBE on-line account. School Conference Manager will be open for booking appointments on Monday, March 11th at 9:00 am.     After spring break we will kick start our second round of Clubs for all students.  We will give students a chance to voice the clubs they would like this semester and do our best to accommodate. Our students are tremendously enthusiastic about clubs.  This round of clubs will run into the middle of June and will provide a variety of choice for students to select from. Thank you to the teachers for facilitating the clubs!   Here are a few highlights of up and coming events in March and April: Ø  March 6th, some of our grade 1 students will be going to the Telus Sparks for a full day field trip.    Ø  For those students who have an Individualized Program Plan, the updated IPP will be coming home the third week of April.  Please setup a meeting with your child’s teacher to discuss progress and the new learning cycles. Ø  March 18th – School Council Meeting at 6:00pm Ø  Spring Break will start on March 22rd (if you aren’t coming to an interview that day) and continue until April 7th.  We hope that you have the opportunity to spend time with family and friends, or just rest and relax during these two Ø  As a fund raiser, our School Council is holding a student dance night on Thursday, April 11th from 5-7 pm.  Purchasing of tickets is a requirement to attend this fun family night and more information will follow!! Ø  Our grade 5 students will be going for their second time to the Tim Horton’s Camp on April 15th – 18th Ø  April 19th – Good Friday, no school Ø  April 22nd – Non Instructional Day –no school Ø  April 30th – Fun Lunch Day – order from Healthy Hunger on line to order pizza for your child   As always, please stop by for a visit or a chat anytime; we love hearing from you!!       Tresa Pedersen Wright                                                             Greg Bennett Principal                                                                                       Assistant Principal
