Dear Parents & Guardians,  


Trickster Week is Here!  

Parents, we are looking forward to a week of physical storytelling and creativity with the Trickster Residency. We would also like to say a huge thank you to Andrew Sibbald's Parent Association for covering the cost of this residency for our students.  


Please join us on Thursday evening for your child/children's performances. There is only enough space inside the gym for two seats per family. There are no tickets. Each show is quite different in content, and we hope you enjoy seeing what the students create with their Trickster this week.  


Some reminders:  


The first show is 5:30 – 6:30. Please arrive between 5:00 – 5:15. Students go to their classrooms & parents go to the gym. The students performing and family in the audience are asked to leave promptly (please pick up your child from his or her classroom at the end of the show). No one is permitted to pick up from classrooms until the end of the show at 6:30.

The second show is 7:00 – 8:00. Please arrive at 6:45. Students go to their classrooms & parents to the gym. You will pick up your child/ren at the end of the show. No one is permitted to pick up from classrooms until the end of the show at 8:00.

Please reach out, if you have any questions.  


Update & Thank You - Student Fundraising Efforts for Outdoor Gaga Ball Pit 

Thank you to all the students and parents who have helped support the Gr. 6 Gaga Ball Committee's fundraising efforts. It was truly appreciated. The students have successfully raised $1 500 dollars and met their contribution goal. We are also VERY grateful to the Parent Association and School Council for their support (both financial and encouragement) around this initiative. We will share out information around the building of the Gaga Ball Pit, as we work alongside CBE Facilities and timelines are established.  


Big Brave Update 

Thank you once again to our wonderful Sibbald community for your continued support with our annual Big Brave event for Kids Cancer Care Foundation of Alberta. Our kickoff assembly brought lots of excitement and sparked the hearts of students wanting to help kids who are fighting childhood cancer. We're off to a great start having raised over $1000 in our first week! Just a reminder that participation permission forms need to be back by May 18th. Check out our Andrew Sibbald Team Page to keep updated on how we are doing! 


Save the Date – Bottle Drive Fundraiser on May 24th  

Andrew Sibbald Parent Association, our school's fundraising body, will be hosting a bottle drive on May 24th in support of our school's purchase of a Gaga Ball Pit for the school grounds. More information to follow!
