Principal's Message

October 25, 2019


Dear Families,
Many, many thanks to the WSSDA and all of the volunteers for their incredible support organizing and executing another successful Halloween Howler! The gift of your time ensures that the students and staff of West Springs School receive so many extras including dollars for books, technology, equipment for learning, residencies, experts and experiences and so much more. An excellent example of this is our inline skating for all grades K-4 beginning November 4 and running through November 21. Please know that we are grateful for all that you do!
For families new to West Springs, please be aware that students wear regular clothing or Halloween colours during the day on October 31.  Teachers and students may engage in activities linked to the season as it relates to their specific Programs of Study.
Our staff has been working diligently examining and analyzing student data in order to set direction for our School Development Plan. Our plan aligns with the CBE Three Year Education Plan and outlines specific strategies that both teachers and students will undertake in order to improve achievement in the areas of literacy, numeracy and student well-being. A draft version of our plan will be shared and an opportunity for feedback will be provided at our next School Council meeting November 14, from 6:30-8:00 pm.
Six student teachers from the University of Calgary will begin their work at West Springs School on November 4 and complete two rounds of extended practical experience. This professional learning opportunity is reciprocal. Students and their cooperating teacher partners (along with their teams) work together to develop rich tasks and support students both individually and in groups.  Professional conversations and reflections on practice and research elevate the work for all. We look forward to welcoming those new to the profession to our school.
We believe that outdoor play is essential and have incorporated an increase in exploring in nature and the outdoors as one of many strategies related to student well-being. Please ensure that students are prepared for outdoor learning and play in changing weather conditions. An extra pair of socks/mittens and dressing in layers will provide greater comfort both inside the school and out.
Safety notes: If you are visiting the playground over the lunch period, it is important that you have permission from the principal to be present on the field. This involves letting us know in advance, signing in at the office and wearing a visitor tag. Having all adults on the playground identified, helps ensure the safety and security of all of our students. Should you be a kindergarten parent visiting the playground either before or after entrance or dismissal, please be aware that you should be actively supervising and always within arm’s reach of your child.
Happy weekend,
Carrie and Shannon
