Dates to Remember

Principal's Message

Where has 2019 gone!

Like most of you, I too am wondering where 2019 has gone!  It seems like only yesterday we were welcoming students and families for the start of the school year, however,  when we look at how much our students have grown, as learners and as people, it is clear that September came and went…a long time ago.
As we celebrate student achievement and growth, please be advised that your child will receive their first report card for the 2019-20 school year on Tuesday, December 17.  Report cards are ‘summative assessment tools’, meaning that they are measures of your child’s achievements in relation to the Alberta Program of Studies thus far.  They also connect to the CBE Board of Trustee’s Results Policies, which are clear directions defining student success.  Please be advised that the date for dissemination of report cards is strategic-should you have questions, there are a few days in advance of the break for you to come and ask about them!  We would appreciate the opportunity for you to express concerns in advance of the break.
November marked the completion of our annual School Development Plan outlining specific direction for instructional and achievement focus.  We have three goals this year focusing on numeracy, Spanish speaking and wellbeing in learning.  This document, along with our Annual Report, which highlights our many achievements from the 2018-19 school year, can be found on our school website on the Our School page.
Registration for kindergarten and Grade 1 for our Spanish bilingual program begins on January 20th.  Applications for our Spanish bilingual program are being accepted from Monday, January 20th to Tuesday February 11th (12:00noon). Lottery, if required, will take place on Wednesday Feb 12.
Our Open House will be Thursday, January 9, geared towards perspective families.  We will be sending home a flyer for the open house to each family, and will be asking you to share this information with friends/family living within our catchment area who might be interested in their Kindergarten or Grade 1 student attending our school.  Alternatively, the flyer can be placed in your coffee shop, dentist office, etc. Thanks for your support.  Please read further into this newsletter for more information.
Current Grade 5 students have been designated to Senator Patrick Burns School.  If another program is being sought (ex. community school), please contact the school for directions on how to register your child.
Students will start the New Year with swimming lessons (Grade 1-3) and rollerblading (Grade 4-5). Our school council subsidizes these opportunities. Our school-wide Artist in Residence program also begins in January. We will welcome storyteller Jeff Stockton. He will be supporting students, staff and our school as we focus on Spanish oral language production.
As we look towards the end of December, please accept my invitation to join us for our Carolling Concert, featuring our Grade 4-5 choir and handbells groups on December 4th. Sra Gray’s adult choir will also be part of this musical celebration.  We will have two performances, one for the school at 2:00PM, and one for our community at 7:00PM.  Families are welcome to attend both.  Our Grade 1-2 Winter Concert will be on December 11 , again with shows at 2:00PM and 7:00PM.  Doors for both evening concerts on December 4 and 11  will open at 6:30PM.  I would like to recognize, in advance, the countless hours that our children have committed to bringing these celebrations to you, and to their talented teachers who have worked with them to ensure their success.  Thank you to our talented music teacher, Sra Gray, for her vision, talent, and dedication to our children and our school.  These celebrations will be wonderful evenings of music and camaraderie.
On behalf of students and staff at WO Mitchell School, I wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!  !  ¡Feliz Navidad y próspero año nuevo!
Susan Coveyduck Principal/Directora
