Principal's Message

December 4, 2018

​Dear Families,
It was lovely to connect with families during our conferences, to listen and learn about student progress as part of our commitment to on-going communication. Examples of teaching and learning were evident as samples were displayed throughout the school. Report cards are the formal way we communicate student progress. Student achievement is summarized with indicators against report card stems that indicate key areas of learning from the Alberta Programs of Study. Achievement is based on a body of evidence that includes conversations, observations and artifacts of learning and represent what a student knows and can do at a certain point in time.  Our report cards will be going home January 11, 2019. Should you have any questions or concerns regarding your child’s progress, please contact your child’s teacher to discuss.
Our multi-age family group meeting will occur Thursday, December 6. Students will spend time getting to know one another and developing a sense of community and identity with their teams. Students are encouraged to dress in their family group colours.
Join us on Thursday, December 20 as the students of West Springs School Unearth, Music and Movement.  All students will demonstrate outcomes of learning in both Physical Education and Music in a performance curated by Ms. Wright and Mr. Vooys. There will be an am and pm performance in order to accommodate all classes.  Further information regarding the presentation for your child will be forthcoming.
For families new to West Springs School, our school has traditionally participated in an outreach evening, where each grade team works with their families to give back in some way to the community. Students have input into how/what charitable organization to support and work with their teachers to prepare for the event. This often involves gathering materials with the support of their family. This year, we have decided to hold our outreach evening on January 24. After the holidays is a time when many charities have a more difficult time gathering needed donations and is a time when many of our own families are less busy. Students and teachers will be working together to determine next steps and will communicate details in advance of the winter break.
Our Scholastic Book Fair was a huge success! Many thanks to the volunteers who helped set up, take down and manage sales over the week. In addition to providing some great reading and related treats for students and families, we are able to purchase a large amount of library and classroom reading material as a result.
As a school community, we are grateful for your financial support. Fundraising dollars support the work of our School Development Plan (link attached) by providing resources, experiences and professional development that impact/enhance the learning of all students and staff. Most recently, we have purchased book material and manipulatives to support our goal of improved computational fluency and used some of our professional development time/dollars for teachers to work with our math lead to design experiences/assessment for students. Your on-going support is appreciated.
