Principal's Message

Welcome Back to the 2019-2020 School Year!

​Dear Parents and Guardians
 
We hope that you have had a wonderful and enjoyable summer.  The teachers and all support staff have been in the school preparing the learning environments as well as the Inquiries for the year!  We are all inspired and cannot wait for the teaching and learning to begin.  You have probably already received a call from your student’s teacher with information about the first day of school and other items that students will need.  Please ensure to send students to school with a backpack, a litter less lunch ( if they are staying for lunch), water bottle, indoor running shoes and a jacket. 
 
On Tuesday September 3rd students are to gather at the  back of the school, and at the bell we will all gather in the gym.  Students will not be lining up outside, but will instead enter the school from any door that they are close to and go to the gym.  If you are not sure who your child’s teacher is, please ask any staff member with a vest.   They will have master class lists with them.  Once in the gym, students will find their teacher and line up with them.  There will be signs with teachers’ names posted on the gym walls.  Once all students are with their teachers an announcement will be made for each teacher to take their students to their respective classrooms. 
 
Parents are asked to say goodbye to their children in the gym and let them attend their first day of school. This is an important step towards building a strong relationship with their teacher and classmates, and we strive to build each child’s independence starting day one.  Myself and Ms. Devender-Kraft along with our School and Parent council chairs; Gabriella McLellan and Lisa Turner will remain in the gym for some brief announcements and to answer any questions parents may have. 
 
If you are dropping your student off at school please ensure to park along the field of the school and to avoid the bussing area in front of the school and the parking lot.
 
Again, we kindly ask that parents not go to the classrooms as this is disruptive to the learning and can potentially create further distress during this early time of transition.  Later in September, we will have a meet the teacher evening where you will be able to ask questions and learn more about day to day learning at school.  Please see our school website http://school.cbe.ab.ca/school/westdalhousie/Pages/default.aspx for information on Bell times, Calendar, Bussing and anything else that you feel you need to access.  As always you are welcome to call, email or pop in and see us.
 
Please save the date of Thursday, September 12th from 7:30 – 8:00 for the annual WDS Muffin Mixer.  Cost is $5 per family.
 
We can’t wait to see your children and of course connect with you as well.  Wishing you a safe and happy long weekend.  Later today the staff page on our website will be updated.  Please follow this link: http://school.cbe.ab.ca/school/westdalhousie/about-us/contact/staff/pages/default.aspx to see all our staff this year.
 Sincerely, 
Mrs. Spagnolo
