Principal's Message

September 2019

​September 2019
Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year. I hope that everyone had a terrific summer holiday and that all students and their families are ready for a successful start to this school year. The start of the school year is a busy and exciting time. As a staff, we are excited to be partners in students’ learning and education. We know that working to develop good work habits, taking time to relax when we can, eating well and getting enough sleep are key factors in being successful.
This message is intended to let parents know about staff changes from the last school year and upcoming events. Please feel free to contact the school if you have any questions.
Staff Updates
I am pleased to share several new talented staff members that are joining us this year.
Welcome to the following individuals that are new to Colonel Irvine School:
Ms. Sarah Scott – Science and Options
Mr. Scott Claiter - Humanities
Mr. Nicholas Wright – Humanities and Options
Returning to Colonel Irvine from parental leave:  
Ms. Leah Hughson – Learning Leader - Resource
First Day of School- Tuesday, September 3, 2019
First day of school for our grade 5, 6 & 7 students will be Tuesday, September 3. Lunch will be provided to students. We will be serving a hamburger, juice and bits and bites snacks for lunch. There is a vegetarian option for the burger. If your son/daughter has any other dietary restrictions, please have him/her pack their own lunch for that day.
Wednesday, September 4, 2019
All students will be in.
Early Friday Dismissal Reminder
This is a reminder that on Fridays we will have early dismissals unless it is a non-instructional day or a statutory holiday. On Friday, September 6, 2019 there is a BBQ lunch for all students and staff at 11:00 am. We will be serving beef hotdogs and a juice box. A vegetarian option will be available. If your son/daughter has any other dietary restrictions, please have him/her pack their own snack for that morning.
Student options are manually timetabled to ensure students get most of their top choices. We then integrate those choices into the timetable each student receives. This is a front-end work intensive process but it does reduce the number of students requesting changes once they receive their timetable. If students have questions about the option classes they are scheduled in, they are encouraged to come to the office to speak with Mr. Bylsma or Ms. Ko.
School Council
The School Council is very active part of our school community. We’d like to extend an invitation to all parents who wish to join the School Council. Our first meeting will be held on Tuesday, September 10 at 6:30. We appreciate the time and dedication of our parents in supporting students, staff and our community. We encourage all parents/guardians to be involved in some capacity throughout the year. All positions for council are currently open and elections will be held at the first meeting of the year.
Meet the Teacher Evening
Parents are invited to “Meet the Teacher” Night Wednesday, September 18 at 6:30 p.m. This is your first opportunity to meet your child’s teachers and we look forward to seeing you there. We will also be offering help sessions for parents to navigate through Power School, a website to help parents/guardians to view and monitor student progress at the school. Please note that this is not a parent-teacher interview evening (November 20, 21 and the 22 will be our first parent-teacher interviews), but rather a chance for you to put faces to the names of your child’s teachers and to help in establishing strong communication connections between school and families.
Photo Day
Photo day will be on Thursday, September 19. All students will be required to take a photo for their School ID card.
Terry Fox Run
Our Terry Fox Run will be on Friday, September 27 in the morning. Fundraising activities will begin shortly and continue through the fall season as our school has committed to raising $2000 for the Terry Fox Foundation. Our students have always shown great leadership and effort in raising funds for charity. I believe that we will be able to achieve our goal of $2000. Together we can and do make a difference.​
