Principal's Message

October's Message

​Welcome to the fall equinox!  
The temperature is getting colder and the plants, trees, and animals are preparing for winter as are we at PFS. September was a very busy month; students had an opportunity to participate in field trips to Nose Hill Park for sage picking and Granary Road – Active Learning Park. 
Thank you to Stantec Engineering Service and parent volunteers for your assistance with our field trips.  I was in awe to see 200 parents and students attend our Meet the Teacher Night and most grateful for those parents who graciously volunteered for our Parent Advisory Council (PAC). Our next PAC meeting will take place on Thursday, Oct. 17 from 2:00 – 3:00 pm. 
I am excited to introduce Assistant Principal, Benjamin Williams. Mr. Benjamin joins PFS from Robert Thirsk High School. He brings a wealth of trauma-informed practice expertise and knowledge, as well as years of teaching experience. Mr. Benjamin also has extensive experience with physical education and outdoor education. Welcome, Mr. Benjamin! 
PFS has partnered with two significant service agencies to assist students with their obstetric and medical needs. 
• Dr. Emeka Nzekwu from Nation’s Vision will provide eye exams for all PFS students. Consent forms will be sent home on Thursday, October 10. Parents, please sign and return the consent forms to the office ASAP.  Nation’s Vision will provide glasses for those children who are in need. Student glasses will remain at the school until the end of the school year. 
• Dr. Lana Potts, GP, and Ronald MacDonald Care Mobile will provide medical appointments on the following dates: 
o November – December: second Tuesday of each montho January – June: first Tuesday of each month. 
Dr. Potts will provide appointment booking information. 
Moving forward into the new school year, staff and students will focus on learning. Daily one-hour literacy and math groups will begin on Oct. 7.  Parents, please take the time to read at home to your children and ensure you are asking what they learned in school today. 
A reminder to parents to ensure you are dressing your children appropriately for the cold weather. We are in the process of ordering winter jackets through the generous donation from Jacket Racket for those who require assistance; however, these jackets will not be available until December.  
Have a wonderful fall season! 
Kind regards, Iikiinayookaa M. Yellow HornPrincipal, Piitoayis Family School
