Dates to Remember


Principal's Message


​Learning is in full swing here at Chris Akkerman! The past two months have been busy and we are excited to continue this business for the next two months. The focus is always on teaching and learning and we have established our goals for our School Development Plan for the 2019 – 2020 school year. We will be focusing on improving reading comprehension skills in ELA, problem-solving skills in Mathematics and building connections to improve student well-being. These goals will be the focus of our professional learning and the work done during our professional learning communities on Friday afternoons. As a staff, we will regularly reflect on our goals and student evidence of learning to track and monitor our progress.
Many important events are coming up prior to our winter break. Please refer to the school calendar to ensure you are aware of all these events. Parent/Teacher conferences are coming up on November 7 and 8. These are an excellent opportunity to meet with your child’s teacher to discuss their learning. Teachers will be prepared with evidence of learning to discuss and review with you. As in the past, appointments are booked using your MyCBEAccount. Please contact the office if you need support with this. Bookings begin on November 4.
We had our first school council meeting in September and were amazed by the turn out and success. We established a new council and are excited to work together this year. All meetings are on the last Monday of the month @ 6:30 pm. We meet in the Learning Commons and encourage all families to attend. The meeting will be on November 25 and there will not be a meeting in December.
Mrs. Costinak is busy preparing for our Grade 3 – 5 winter musical. The dates for these are December 4 and 5 and more information will continue to be shared throughout November. For your information, the following classes will perform on the following evenings: 
- Wednesday, December 4 – Mastin, Betcher, Depew, Cochlin, Bates, Vonka
- Thursday, December 5 – Szczepanski, Hockin, Korolis, Fensom, Peniuk, Fontanne
The last day of classes for students will be on December 19 and they return to school on January 6, 2020. While that seems far away, it’ll be here before we know it. We appreciate all of your support for our wonderful school community. It is our pleasure to work with your students each and every day.
