Principal's Message

Happy March!

Happy March!
While arguably another short month due to our upcoming Spring Break, it is a month of rich learning and opportunities for students. Please read further into the newsletter for information for upcoming events, as well as regular communications that come from the school and your child’s classroom teacher.
Last week, you would have received a request to complete a transportation survey from the CBE. As transportation has been identified as an area for reconsideration from a budgetary/financial perspective, I cannot stress the importance of completion. The link for the survey can be found here: https://engage.cbedialogue.com/en/projects/5/engagements/29/sections/1
Our storytelling residency is coming to a conclusion. You would have received an invitation to our final celebration, on March 13th. The invitation describes time and location for your child’s performance. Please contact your child’s classroom teacher if you have misplaced that information.
Our residency has been such a rich learning experience for all. Teacher toolboxes for story writing development and oral/aural presentations have been filled. Students have learned so many speaking skills that (hopefully) public speaking will become something all enjoy. The intense focus on our School Development Plan (Spanish speaking proficiency) has helped students feel more confident in speaking Spanish. I would like to recognize all teachers for their profound commitment and work to actualize this residency, Sra Fleischer for her ‘project management’ skills, our support staff for making work plans adjust ‘on the fly’. I would also like to thank our School Council for supporting this project, both philosophically and financially (it took a lot of poinsettia and Family Fun Night contributions to pay for the residency; thank you to families for supporting fundraising efforts). Finally, thank you to Mr Stockton, who vision, expertise, and passion for the art form of story telling brought our project to light, and sustained it to it’s conclusion. We will miss working with you, and learning from you!
Our first (annual ?) science fair is in the books. Please read into the newsletter for more information. Once again, I wish to extend my sincerest gratitude to all the students who committed to this scientific adventure, and to all the adults who helped them be successful.
Just before winter break, all WOM families were asked to complete notices of intent, indicating whether or not they would be returning to WOM for the 2020-21 school year; this includes our grade 5 students moving on to middle school. There are two reasons why we seek this information; to better inform our site based planning decisions, and to support the CBE ethos of solid transition plans for students moving to other schools. If you did not submit this information to the front office team, or if your plans have changed and your child will be attending a different school than indicated, kindly advise the office ASAP!
We are pleased to share that a lottery was not required for people wishing to attend our school for the 2020-21 school year! While interest was high, we were able to offer placement to all eligible students who applied. We will continue to take and consider eligible applications, in the order in which they are received. A conversations with administration is required in advance of consideration for grades 2 and above. Kindly share this information with interested families. On a personal note, I attended an international conference focused on second language instruction, with particular emphasis on inclusion and cultural competencies. While much was learned, my beliefs that the CBE offers exceptional language programs and opportunities was affirmed. My experiences not only invigorated my resolve to support and strengthen language learning opportunities at my school and within my Board, but also made me very proud of and excited for the opportunities that our students have in the CBE. Thank you for your commitment and support as we work collectively to strengthen the learning experiences for our students.
