Principal's Message

February 25, 2019: We need volunteers

​I find myself updating this post at the end of the coldest month of the 2018-2019 school year. This morning, the temperature is -35 with wind chill. Students have spent most of the month indoors because our temperatures rarely made it above -20.  As you can imagine, the students are a bit stir crazy by now and relief isn't supposed to come until the middle of next week. Nevertheless, they are doing their best and are typically engaged in their work when I visit classrooms.
IMPORTANT UPDATE: A call-out went to families on February 25 to try and save several of our upcoming field trips. Please help if you are able - we are grateful for volunteers who are willing to help out with any grade, not just their children's. 
We have a number of field trips going to some wonderful places in the coming weeks and are struggling to get the required number of parent volunteers. The ratios for students that are required by the CBE are below:
Kindergarten: 1 adult supervisor for every 5 students
Grades 1 to 3: 1 adult supervisor for every 8 students
Grades 4 to 6: 1 adult supervisor for every 10 students
Basically that means that when a grade one class of 24 students goes on a field trip, we have to have 3 adults minimum along. Each class typically has 1 teacher and is looking for at least 2 to 4 parent volunteers. We try and have enough volunteers so that we are below the ratio for two reasons. First, smaller groups are easier for the adults to supervise and safer. Second, if a parent is unable to volunteer at the last minute due to unforseen circumstances, we still have enough volunteers to continue with the trip.  I am listing the trips we have planned in the hope that parents might be able to free themselves up to help us and make these amazing opportunities happen for their children. Please note, you MUST have a completed CBE Police Volunteer Security Check (these generally take 3-4 weeks to process). Please call the school to learn how to get your clearance.
February 20: Representatives from each homeroom in grades 1 to 6 will join us on a trip to Chapters Spectrum to buy books for their classroom collections. We have 21 homerooms and because both division one and division two students will be present, we will need at least 3 or 4 additional parent volunteers.
February 25: Ms. Yu, Ms. Jessa and Ms. Sampson will be taking their classes to the Leighton Art Centre on a unique art experience for the day. 
February 26: Ms. Bensari, Ms. MacNeill and Ms. Pelletier will be taking their grade 1 classes to Ralph Klein Park for a special science study.
February 27: We have two trips! Mr. Jaques and Ms. Brewer will be taking their grade 1 classes to Ralph Klein Park. Ms. Cave, Ms. Jupo, Ms. Miner and Mr. Leonard will be taking their classes to the Leighton Art Centre for a special artistic adventure.
March 7: Mr. Chong and Mr. Sealy will be taking the grade six students to Dr. Gordon Higgins for the afternoon to tour their designated junior high for next year.
March 19 & March 20: All of our grade 1 classes will be going to the Leighton Art Centre for a wonderful artistic adventure of their own! Ms. Bensari, Ms, MacNeill and Ms. Pelletier are going on the 19th; while Ms. Brewer and Mr. Jaques are going on the 20th.
We need our school community's support to make these very special trips, which are heavily subsidized by our Parent Society, a reality for your children!
