Principal's Message

October 2019

​Can you believe that your child has been in school for one whole month already?!?  Lots of rich language learning has already taken place, and students have been using and experimenting with both Mandarin and English through songs, poems, and conversations.  Thank you parents for your support at home in getting homework completed, checking D2L, doing nightly home reading, setting up an evening routine that is suitable for your child, and getting them to bed at an early hour.  All of these things make a big difference to your child’s learning.
There are many field trips planned for the month of October and in order for classes to be able to go, a certain number of parent volunteers must accompany the class.  If there are not enough volunteers, field trips may need to be cancelled.  If you are interested in volunteering, you MUST have a cleared CBE police clearance on file (clearance through other organizations cannot be accepted).  We encourage all parents to complete a volunteer clearance form (that is good for 5 years) just in case… you never know when you have a day off and can help us out!  To apply, you need to stop by the school first, bring your driver’s licence as a form of ID, and the school will print you a letter that you will use to apply at the police station or online.  Plan for the approval process to take at least 4 weeks, so apply as soon as possible.  Please take the time to apply for a police clearance as we would love to have you volunteer with us… even if it is only for an hour! 
As the weather is always changing, please remember to dress your child appropriately for various weather conditions.  It is a good idea to dress them in layers, as it is often cool in the morning and warm in the afternoon.  Students go outside for recess in the snow and in light rain.  Students only stay inside for recess if the temperature is -20°C or colder with the wind chill.
A special thank you goes out to Highwood School Council who funded the addition of a traverse wall in our gym.  On the afternoon of Friday, September 27, teachers completed a 3-hour training session to learn how to use the wall properly and safely with students.  The traverse wall will be used in conjunction with the gymnastics unit.
