Principal's Message

March 2022

​Good afternoon Buffalo Rubbing Stone families,
We are looking forward to meeting with parents today and tomorrow for Parent-Teacher Conferences.  Please connect with your child(ren)'s teachers on Microsoft Teams at the scheduled time.  We encourage you to include your child(ren) in the conversation about their learning.  Among our School Development Plan (SDP) goals is increasing students' confidence, persistence, and independence.  Being included in the conversations that celebrate their accomplishments and identify next steps in learning helps students achieve these SDP goals.
Thank you to the parents who participated in our annual parent survey.  We shared and discussed the survey results at our School Council Meeting last week.  A PDF of the survey presentation is in the sidebar of the About Us - Our School tab of the BRS website.  One key observation of the survey data was the alignment of parents' and teachers' opinions about SDP and school spending priorities.  Our home-school partnership is a key element of student success.  Further to the survey results, we shared some of the mathematics problem solving tasks students are addressing and the problem solving strategies students are learning.  At the next meeting, we will focus on our writing goal.
Last Friday, the Minister of Education, two of our CBE Trustees, and our Area 2 Director visited Buffalo Rubbing Stone School to see Alberta Education's Learning Disruption Funding at work.  As we reported in the School Council Meeting, this additional funding has provided important learning opportunities for our students and staff.  We are seeing strong progress in reading and math resulting from this intervention.  The Minster was pleased to see the impact this funding is having on our learners.  As she toured the school, she commented on the beautiful art in our hallways and had the opportunity to speak with one of our grade 5 students about the important role of our EES students in our school community.  At the Board of Trustees Meeting earlier this week, trustees commented on the positive experiences they had at BRS including the opportunity to observe strong learning routines, the strategic use of instructional materials, and the creative use of learning spaces.  It is always a privilege to share our learning with others.  It is important for students to articulate their learning and explain their thinking to others.  They enjoyed the opportunity to discuss their learning with our guests.
Please remember that clocks spring ahead this weekend as we move to daylight saving time.  Next week will be filled with important learning before we pause for some rest and rejuvenation during spring break, the week of March 21.
Take good care,
Allison
