Principal's Message

Winter 2019 Update

​December is once again upon us, and the Winter Break and Christmas are just around the corner. December and January are filled with lots of events, activities, and opportunities for students and families.  Please see online calendar.
                                                                                         
At this time of year, everyone has opportunities both large and small to show kindness and generosity. It may be because we are in the gift-giving mode that giving to others becomes so important at this time of the season.  This is the time when we are more aware of our families, friends and communities.  Whatever the reason, do not let this time of year pass you by without showing kin​dness and generosity to someone less fortunate.   Acts of kindness can include delivering gifts/hampers to a family in need, serving homeless families at a soup kitchen, allowing someone to go ahead of you in a lengthy line up at the department store, or even just saying some kind words to a stranger.  Live in the spirit of the “Circle of Courage”.  It is truly more important to give than to receive.
In the spirit of generosity and kindness, our learning community is involved in two service-learning opportunities during the month of December:  Food Bank Collection and Grade Family Hampers.
 
Through these two Christmas service learning opportunities our learning community has been able to spread happiness, support and hope to individuals and families currently facing difficult circumstances in their lives at this time of year.  Olympic Heights School is a very generous learning community who emulates the “Circle of Courage” and makes a difference in many people’s lives.  Thank you to everyone for their support.
 
In the spirit of generosity, we want to thank the School Council – Special Events Committee for the wonderful dinner provided for Student Led Conferences. Truly appreciated by the staff.
 
Thanks again for everyone’s Generosity and Kindness.

The last day of classes for this term is Thursday, December 19th. 
Report Cards will go out on Friday, January 30th. 

Thank you to all parents/guardians who attended Student Led Conferences. We hope that you saw your child(ren)’s learning in action and the great things taking place in the classrooms at Olympic Heights  School. We had a 97% turnout by our learning community.  Very impressive.
 
In order to prepare students for conferences, teachers worked with students collaboratively to demonstrate their learning and student assessments.   Teachers used a variety of assessment strategies to gather student data to accurately assess students.  Some types of assessments are: rubrics, student documentation, informal/formal testing, student self-assessment/reflection and assessment of the student’s skills utilized in journals, problem based activities, projects and portfolios.
 
The students and staff at Olympic Heights School have worked hard as a learning community this term and feel proud of their accomplishments. The learning environment at Olympic Heights School continues to be an exciting place where we see the possibilities in all students and challenge each student to do their best. 
 
To all our students and families we extend our best wishes for a peaceful and restful holiday. We hope that you have the opportunity to spend time together. The entire Olympic Heights School Staff wishes all students and families a safe and relaxing holiday season filled with special memories.

AN INVITATION – CHRISTMAS CAROLLING/SPECIAL PRESENTATION
Parents/guardians and extended families are invited to join the students and staff of Olympic Heights School during the last week of school in December as we join together to sing Christmas carols and songs of the season.
 
December 18th – 3:00 pm 
December 19th – 11:15 am 
KINDERGARTEN REGISTRATION
Kindergarten registrations begin Monday, January 20th.  If you know of any new families please let them know. 
 
SCHOOL PATROLS
Our School Patrols are doing a marvellous job in helping our student/pedestrians cross the road safely.  The teams are always helping each other when someone needs a spare or is sick.  They are being masters at stopping the traffic.  We are working with the Safety Patrollers to identify when the roads are icy and learning how much time the cars need to stop before they put up the Stop sign. Drivers please watch for the STOP signs the patrollers are holding up.  They will step back and put their signs down when you are free to resume again. 
 
LOST AND FOUND
The lost and found bin is once again overflowing.  The lost and found are out on tables for students and parents to go through.  You may also look through it, if you come to the school for an event or to pick up your child.  Anything left after the last day of classes before Winter Break will be donated to Good Will.
 
WINTER SAFETY
All students, whether they are bussed or walk to school, should wear clothing that will keep them warm in cold weather.  An extra pair of mittens and/or head covering could be tucked into backpacks to be ready to use.  During extreme weather conditions and as a basic safety precaution, bussed students should have an alternate plan of action if the bus is late or does not arrive at their scheduled bus stop.  Please discuss with your child(ren) what they should do if such a situation occurs.  Students should come to school prepared for the cold weather.  Students are required to go outside if the weather is warmer than -20 degrees Celsius.  In colder temperatures students will be allowed to come into the school. During lunch hour, activities are planned for students if they are required to stay in. 
 
In addition, please ensure your child has a pair of indoor shoes, always at school.  If a fire drill or emergency evacuation occurs, students must exit the building and it is not always possible to grab their boots.​
