Principal's Message

Thanksgiving

Dear Families,
As we look forward to this October, a highlight for me is Thanksgiving, and that gives me reason to think back on September, and the many things for which I am thankful. I am firstly thankful for the 423 remarkable children we welcomed back to school. I marvel at the ways in which they engage in their learning, the ways they show that they care about others, and the ways that they intentionally work to make WOM a ‘great place to grow’…for all!
I am also thankful for our involved parent community. The parents of WO Mitchell School embrace the notion that “it takes a team”, and are so supportive not only of their children, but of all children, our staff and our school. The many ways they work to enrich the learning and lives of our students, whether through volunteering, fundraising, ensuring children have the tools they need to learn, or through our School Council are so appreciated.
Finally, I am thankful for the 37 staff members who support all of our students. Mere words cannot describe how fortunate I feel to be the principal of a school where I have absolutely no doubt that every single employee, regardless of position, cares about our students, and are 100% committed to their success, as learners and as people.
We look forward to welcoming parents/reconnecting with families during our student/parent/teacher conferences. They are booked conferences, taking place on Thursday, October 10 and Friday October 11. Students are welcome (and encouraged) to attend. We hold 3 ‘official’ conferences during the course of a school year. The last two will have a significant student-led component, where students lead you through the classroom and share with you various learning centres (in addition to having a reserved time to talk with the teacher). During this first conference, there is no student-led portion, just the interview with the teacher. Because of this, there is no ‘flexibility’ in the teacher interview time- it is important that parents are on time for the interview, and that if you have more than one child, that you consider the transition time in your booking (i.e. Do not book interviews back to back if your children do not have the same teacher). Teachers have been asked to be diligent in their timing!
In order to book conferences, you will need to have an account in MyCBE/PowerSchool. Please contact the office if you are having difficulty registering for MyCBE/PowerSchool. The link for registered people is below, and from that page you can follow directions if you do not have an account. You will need your child’s CBE number.
If you ordered apples from our School Council Apple Orchard, please pick up your apples during conferences, as this is when they are scheduled to be delivered (we hope you like ‘dem apples’).
Please mark these important dates on your calendar:
School Council Meeting October 7th: School Administration will be seeking input from parents (recognizing that Council is the voice for parents) for our School Development Plan at this meeting.
Conferences October 10 and 11
Thanksgiving- October 14 (no school)
November 15- Our second annual ‘WO Mitchell School ~ A Great Place to Glow’ Family Dance. This turned out to be the “Event of the Season” last year, and we are sure you will not want to miss it!
Sincerely,
Happy Thanksgiving, Susan Coveyduck, Principal/Directora WO Mitchell School​
