Principal's Message

Alex Munro School Updates - October 4 - 8


Staffing Update
Please see the introduction letter from our new Assistant Principal Ms. Sasha below. 
Hello Alex Munro Students and Families!
My name is Sasha Gardiner-Hadford and I am excited to introduce myself as the new assistant principal of Alex Munro School. I look forward to meeting all of you and working alongside the community beginning on Monday, October 4.
I have been an educator with the Calgary Board of Education for over twenty years, with the majority of my teaching experience in K-6 positions as well as resource and literacy intervention. For the past three years I have been fortunate to work as a system literacy specialist at the CBE's Education Centre. My work included supporting literacy professional learning for teachers, creating resources, and working with schools to improve reading and writing achievement.
When I am not at school, I enjoy spending time with my husband, son (grade 12) and daughter (grade 8). I also enjoy reading, skiing, walking, listening to podcasts, and I discovered my love of stand-up paddle boarding this summer!
I believe that students are at the centre of all we do and that relationship building is vital to the success of our students both academically and socially. I am excited to meet and work with all of you at Alex Munro School.
See you soon!
Sasha Gardiner-Hadford

Huge thanks to Ms. Kaley who has provided organization and school start up leadership over the past month in the role of Acting Assistant Principal.  Ms. Kaley will re-join her grade ¾ class beginning October 4.  Also many thanks to Ms. Ng who has been our temporary teacher in Ms. Kaley's grade ¾ class from the beginning of this school year. 
Terry Fox Run
On Thursday, September 23, students had a great Terry Fox run during their daily gym time.  In honour of this memorable Canadian we as members of the Alex Munro Schoolhouse ran many laps.
Considering our track to be approximately 500 metres our school ran 794 laps!  An equivalent of 397 000 m (397 km).
The class who ran the farthest ran 64 000 m (64 km = 128 laps). The class who ran the fewest ran 9500 m (9.5 km = 19 laps).  K's ran- 27 000 m (27 km = 54 laps).  Gr 1/2's ran- 85 500 m (85.5 km = 171 laps).  Gr 3/4's ran- 127 500 m (127.5 km = 255 laps).  Gr 5/6's ran- 157 000 m (157 km = 314 laps)
Terry Fox ran the equivalent of 84 laps a day for 143 days in a row (a marathon a day)!
AMPA
AMPA is running a simple and easy regular fundraising activity each Friday morning before school.  Near the north door of the school, you will find a member of the AMPA team collecting your refundable bottles and cans with the lofty goal of reaching $2000.00 worth of donations over the year.  Donations are used to purchase learning resources, support on and off-site learning activities, fine arts and athletic activities and much more.  Thank-you for your generous donations and for AMPA who support our school in so many ways.   
The next AMPA meeting is Monday, October 18 at 6:00 PM.  All are welcome.  If you are interested in attending, please email alexmunroschoolcouncil@gmail.com for the meeting link. 
Huntington Hills Resident Survey
We are part of the City of Calgary's Community Social Work program. We are working on a community assessment in Huntington Hills. You are invited to participate in our survey to help us understand the community better from a resident perspective. 
Answering the questions is voluntary and your answers will be kept confidential. This means that what you share will not be connected to your name. The survey will take about 10-15 minutes to complete. You can enter a draw to win a $25 Superstore gift card for participation in the survey once completed.
