Exciting Learning Opportunities

October and the first part of November have been a busy months!
 
The magazine fundraiser has wrapped up for another year. A special thanks goes out to Carolyn Campbell, our School Council Fundraiser Coordinator, for doing such an outstanding job organizing this important event for Willow Park and to all the parent volunteers who also came out to help. A thank you to Erin Hogan, our QSP representative, who always makes sure our magazine fundraiser runs smoothly.
 
Over the past few months our teachers have been analyzing a number of documents (PATS, Accountability Survey and the Calgary Board of Education’s Student Survey) to inform the development of our School Development Plan. In our work with the School Development Plan, we have identified that our student achievement goals will address specific areas within literacy and numeracy. Teachers have identified a number of high impact instructional strategies that will support this work. These are also two areas of focus that have been identified by CBE. We will welcome parent input and further discussion about our School Development Plan at our School Council meeting on November 20th at 7:00 in the school’s Learning Commons. Our Annual 2018-2019 Report will be posted on our school website in the near future. It will include a chart of our 2018 Provincial Achievement Test Results.
 
The Remembrance Day Assembly on Friday, November 9th was very moving and well received by students, staff and parents. A special thank you goes out to all of the students who participated in the assembly and to Ms. Quinn-Hall, Ms. Schurig, Ms. Romanchuk, Ms. Williams and Mr. Meadows who supported the students in this outstanding assembly.
 
There are a few staffing updates I would like to share with you. We would like to welcome back Kelsey Hardman who is teaching Mrs. MacGowan’s Grade 6 class during her maternity leave and Sigora Wolff who will be assigned Dr. Kendrick’s classes as she will now be supporting literacy for students in Grades 5-7.
 
On Friday, October 12th, approximately 25 students from our “Me to We” Club earned the right to attend the inspirational and invigorating “We Day” at the Rexall Place in Edmonton! Students had an amazing day. They were among thousands of other students from across Alberta who were selected to go on this special event because of their commitment to making a difference in their communities and their world. Thanks to Mrs. Mallabone for organizing this special day and to Ms. Coles and Mrs. Tremblay for joining the group!
 
Halloween was a fun filled day with students and staff dressed in wild and crazy costumes. One of the highlights of the day was the Haunted House created and hosted by Grade 9 full year Drama and Art students. Thanks to Mrs. Pedersen and Mr. Shank! A special thanks goes out to the parent volunteers who helped out as well!
 
Our Girls’ Empowerment Group for Grade 7-9 girls started last week. We would like to thank Madison Sikking from Aspen Family Services for sponsoring this program.
 
We had a great parent turn out for our High School Information Night on Thursday, November 8th. A special thanks goes out to Mr. Khubyar for making this night a reality!! It was wonderful to see representatives from Joane Cardinal-Schubert, Lord Beaverbrook, Central, EP Scarlett and Henry Wise Wood attend this meeting.
