​Administration’s Message
We would like to welcome Shannen Tickell, our new Educational Assistant to our staff.  Shannen has a wealth of knowledge about and experience working with students with special needs and will be working in our grade 3 classrooms.  Shaista Kamran, another Educational Assistant has increased her hours and will be spending time in grade two as well as grade one for the remainder of the year.  Congratulations to both ladies for their new roles in Abbeydale School.   Thank you to the families that attended our Celebration of Learning/Open House on April 25th, this event was well attended!  Thank you for your active listening during the presentations and your active participation in the games and activities that were presented. We hoped you learned about aspects of the Math and Language Arts curriculums and strategies that we are using in our classrooms in both of these subject areas.  Thank you to our staff who organized, presented, helped serve treats, and directed families to their sessions.    Our grade five students had a very successful and fun time at the Tim Horton’s Camp in the middle of April.  We are very fortunate to be sponsored by Tim Horton’s Foundation so that our grade five students can enjoy two visits out in Kananaskis country.  The community project that they worked on throughout the year centred around gathering personal items for the homeless for the holiday season, creating Christmas cards for seniors in our community, and helping enrich children’s live in our community by helping the Mustard Seed get ready for a children’s party they were facilitating in our community.  On the final day of camp, the students presented a five-minute slide presentation to the camp counselors that highlighted their project.  Throughout the time at camp the students were learning about seven areas of leadership/citizenship: goal setting, peace, relationships, teamwork, challenges, responsibility, motivation and reflection.   May will be a very busy month with lunchtime clubs starting for students over the lunch hour, Welcome to Kindergarten meeting, gymnastics/mission impossible the week of May 6th, non-instructional day on May 17th, and budget planning for next year.  Our leadership club is sponsoring a Crazy Hair Day on May 14th.   See the attached calendar for important dates.   With the new government in Alberta just transitioning in all school jurisdictions are waiting to receive budget information so that schools can make decisions and plans for the 2019-20 school year.  Please see below regarding how the Calgary Board of Education allocates the funds they receive from the government.   We value the input of our parent community and school learning community.  At our School Council meeting on April 29th, we discussed the information above, shared that we anticipate having 260 students next year, and that we hope to have a similar complement of staff as we had this year.  We will likely be having some straight grade and some blended classrooms next year, like we did this year.  When asked at the Council meeting what priorities parent have for the upcoming school year, the following recommendations were made:  music, physical education and movement every day for all students, continue our focus on math, reading, writing, and all academic subjects, perhaps create a reading program through volunteer participation so that our students have increased opportunities to read during the day, and have a welcome back to school barbecue at the beginning of the school year.  If you have other recommendations or priorities for your children, please forward your suggestions to the office so that we can include them in our planning for next school year.  Our staff and students will have opportunities to share their priorities as well.   As always, thank you for your great support of our school and students!!  Without your support, we could not be as successful as we are!  All staff have an open door policy, so please feel free to pop by for a visit, to share your thoughts and concerns, or just say a quick hello.   Tresa Pedersen Wright                                                             Greg Bennett Principal                                                                                       Assistant Principal
