Dear Andrew Sibbald Families,

We hope you have had a wonderful weekend! It’s another busy and exciting week ahead at Sibbald. Our Grade Two students are off to the Zoo and our Grade Five & Six student patrols are off to Heritage Park to celebrate their year-long commitment to this act of service at our school. Thank you to all of the awesome patrols we had this year and to our teacher supervisors who have worked to schedule and supervise students throughout the year.

Grade Three Hatches Chicks! 

Our Grade Three students were overjoyed to see the hatching of chicks in their classroom on Friday. This learning is a part of their life cycles Science curriculum and we are grateful that Ms. Braun and Ms. Swan have taken up this learning opportunity for students. The chicks will head back to Nanny McCluckins after their visit in Grade Three!

Grades 1-6 Sports Day & Pancake Breakfast 

Thank you to Ms. Mitchell, Ms. Swan and Ms. Hayes for organizing our Sibbald Summer Games and Sports Day to take place during the week of June 12-16th. Staff and students look forward to a special pancake breakfast hosted by the Batter Boys on June 16th for Grades 1-6. We are grateful to the Andrew Sibbald Parent Association for covering the cost of this event so all Grades 1-6 students and staff can participate. Parents, more information about this will be emailed to you by your child’s teacher.

Professional Learning Day – Friday, June 9th

As a staff, we look forward to our final day of professional learning together which will focus around continuing to reflect on student evidence and learning data within mathematics, literacy (specifically reading instruction) and well-being from the current school year. Mr. Newman and I are incredibly proud of the staff for their engagement in professional learning this year, including uplifting our new K-3 New Curriculum in meaningful ways. Our professional learning communities held on Friday afternoons, along with our PD Days have supported our intended outcomes this year for both student learning and professional development. As we look ahead to next year and more new curriculum rollout, we are grateful to be able to make thoughtful decisions, and continue to work together in support of our students.
