Principal's Message

February 10th

​Dear Parents,
 
In 2015, the Truth and Reconciliation Commission released 94 Calls to Action for Canadians; these are actionable changes that will help to rebuild relationships between Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples in Canada. Our school continues to work toward Truth and Reconciliation through our actions and the opportunities presented to students, staff, and parents.  We are so grateful to have an ongoing partnership with Saa’kokoto (Elder Randy Bottle), who shares his stories with our students three times each year. Elder Randy will be at Altadore again at the end of this month, connecting curricular objectives to Indigenous ways of knowing. 
 
In addition to learning from Elder Randy, we are so fortunate to be one of only 24 schools across the country to host Phyllis Webstad and Canadian Geographic on Wednesday, February 12th.  Phyllis’ story of her time at Residential School inspired the nationally recognized Orange Shirt Day. We encourage parents to come and join our Grade 3-6 students at 9:30am that day to hear her powerful story.  
 
Last Thursday, Meagan hosted a Blanket Exercise at the school for parents.  The parents explored the history of Canada through an Indigenous lens, and ended the evening with a smudge and circle.  Thank you to those parents who attended; it is so wonderful to see parents engaged in the same learning as their children. 
 
If you have any questions or need more information, please do not hesitate to contact us!
