Principal's Message

Welcome Back!

​Welcome to the 2019-2020 School Year!
 
On behalf of the staff, I would like to welcome all students and parents to Willow Park School for the 2019-20 school year. I am confident that the 2019-20 school year will be an exciting one filled with rich and rewarding learning experiences and opportunities for all of our students. 
 
We had a fantastic start to this school year. On Tuesday, September 3rd, we welcomed our new students to the school. These students appreciated the day and commented that it was a great way for them to become familiarized and comfortable with their new learning environment before the rest of the student population returned on September 4th. They also enjoyed their pizza lunch. On the first few days back students participated in a number of arts-infused learning tasks and learning experiences that encouraged community building. Students also had the opportunity to explore and discuss their Big/Essential Question that will inform and guide their learning this year. We had a special assembly on September 4thwith Chantal Chagnon, a Cree story teller and drummer, Rebecca Dawn, a hip hop spoken word artist, and Bren Royal a traditional jingle dancer who creatively shared the Acknowledgement of the Land with our community. All of these artists emphasized the importance of recognizing and celebrating that we are all Treaty 7 people. We were also treated to a few country songs sung by Spencer Stevens a former Willow Park student. Spencer shared with our students the importance of the arts in his life and the powerful learning experiences he had at Willow. At the end of this eventful week students and staff enjoyed a Welcome Back barbeque.  Thanks goes out to our School Council who support and fund our pizza lunch and barbeque! A special thanks to our staff, students and School Council for making our first week back to school so memorable! 
 
We would like to welcome Ms. Hardman who will be teaching Grade 6, Ms. Mahony who is teaching Mrs. MacGowan’s Grade 6 class until her return at the end of October and Ms. B. Robertson who is joining us as one of our two resource teachers. We would also like to welcome two Educational Assistants Maureen Lawrence and Eden Schmidt. Kelsey MacLeod will be joining our Facility Operators’ team this year. Nebal Saliba is our new Technology Specialist and she will be supporting us with technology one day a week this year.
 
We look forward to seeing you and your child for Meet the Teacher on Thursday, September 19thfrom 5:00pm-8:00pm and Friday, September 20thfrom 8:00am-12pm During these meetings parents will have the opportunity to meet their child’s homeroom teacher. 
 
Here’s to a wonderful year of learning!​
