Principal's Message

June 20, 2019

​With the end of the school year fast approaching, staff and students are still going full speed ahead. Our grade six students have finished writing their PAT exams and are having a small celebration to a successful year this afternoon. Unfortunately, their hike to Grassi Lakes, near Canmore yesterday had to be cancelled due to the weather. We have been living in the in-between world of finishing this school year successfully and getting ready for 2019-2020 at the same time - sometimes, it gets confusing.
I had the pleasure of supporting one of our terrific teachers in celebrating some significant learning yesterday. Our School Development Plan focused on improving student writing and in the grade three classroom, a student couldn't see the improvement in his writing from December to June because the quality of the printing had not really changed. He was a neat printer in December and is still a neat printer. What the teacher and I were able to show him, was the fact that the writing - the ideas and how they were logically sequenced and the use of specific and descriptive words, almost made it appear that the piece had been written by someone else! He also had a much better grasp of conventions, like spelling and punctuation. All of the students in that class were able to celebrate their real and visible learning yesterday afternoon with their teacher, who was thrilled by their progress. I see this played out in classrooms around the school, where teachers excitedly share the progress that their students have made.
It is this tenacity, or grit around student learning, shared by teachers and educational support staff, that is both astounding and encouraging to me. They simply won't give up until they have tried everything they know, and then they go looking for colleagues and experts who know more than they do for help. The hard work and conversations that took place this year during our professional learning cycles and the resultant progess towards specific targets that the students made was significant.
I would like to conclude this entry with a heartfelt thank you to our small and mighty school council. They work quietly and tirelessly behind the scenes. This year, they provided financial supports to the school through the Parent Society, including heavily subsidizing all off-site trips, swimming, on-site presentations and programs, the drumming residency, free treats to all students before Christmas and a bouncy game center for our annual carnival on June 26. They have also helped pay for much of the wonderful technology that enhances learning as well. This spring, they hosted their second annual charity bake sale that was a resounding success. They come to the monthly council meetings with the intention to support and help the school and it has been a privilege and an honour to work with such good people again this year.
