Monday Message: March 20th  


Dear Andrew Sibbald Families,  


Welcome Spring! We are all feeling grateful for the longer hours of daylight and warmer temperatures ahead. The staff and students have done an awesome job getting outside on our school field snowshoeing over the past few weeks and we are proud of even our youngest learners who have been successful in this activity.  


Celebrating International Mathematics (Pi) Day 

We enjoyed celebrating International Mathematics (Pi) Day here at Sibbald last week and appreciate all our Grades 4, 5 & 6 students who have signed up for the Calgary Elementary School Math Contest supported by Mount Royal University. The purpose of the contest is to encourage students to develop interest in mathematics and have fun. On April 26th, students who have chosen to sign up will complete 20 multiple choice questions. As noted by the organizers, this is not an exam but rather an opportunity for challenge and engagement. Thank you to Mr. Newman and our Grades 4, 5 and 6 teachers for supporting this at Andrew Sibbald School.  


Thank You for the Donations 

We have appreciated all the cardboard boxes that have come our way in preparation for the Trickster residency which has been rescheduled for the week of May 8th – 12th. We now have enough carboard. Thanks for your help with this!

Parents & guardians, we hope you and your children have an awesome Spring Break ahead. School resumes on Monday, April 3rd.
