March Updates

Dear Escuela Canyon Meadows Families,

During the month of March, our students have learned to in-line skate, engaged in Indigenous story telling (grades K, 1 and 2), and had conversations with Elders (grades 3, 4 and 5).

This month we also welcomed the Robert Warren Administration Team who visited our grade 5 students in-person. Our students and teachers have also engaged in the “Acts of Kindness” and “The Kindness Window” initiatives created by our Library Assistant, Sra. McNelly. A student in our Advisory Group reflected, “everyone is happy and is writing nice comments on it. The “Acts of Kindness” initiative is going really well.” 

With the province moving into Step 2 of the three-step approach to lifting public health measures as of Tuesday, March 1, our students have enjoyed playing with other cohorts during their scheduled recesses. Our Student Advisory Group shared their feedback “The cohorting being lifted is working well, everybody is happy about that!”

Our final Student Learning Conferences also took place. It was another time to celebrate our students’ accomplishments in their learning. During this past Student Learning Conferences, you had the opportunity to learn about your child’s progress and achievement in relation to the outcomes of the Programs of Study. I recommend continuing going through your child’s Google Classroom and IRIS to stay informed. In addition, your child’s summative assignments are posted in Power School (access through MyCBE/PowerSchool). 

We were thrilled to welcome families that chose to do in-person conferences at the school.  

The Student Advisory Group (comprised of grade 4 and 5 students) has taken the initiative to create “The Riddle of the Week”. Our students and teachers have enjoyed solving these Spanish riddles. Our Student Advisory group awards the Riddler Trophy every Friday to the class that makes the best effort to solve the riddle.  

In April/ May our students and teachers will be engaging in the Virtual Art residency with artist Ewa Sniatycka. We are looking forward to this land-based art learning opportunity. 

We encourage you to participate in our next School Council meeting on April 25. The Robert Warren Administration Team will be present. They will showcase the “Welcome to Robert Warren” video shared during Robert Warren Administration’s visit to our grade 5 students on March 14. 

Immense gratitude goes to Escuela Canyon Meadows gracious School Council for their continuous appreciation for our teachers by providing a special dinner during March Student Learning Conferences.  

Thank you for supporting our second hybrid Book Fair with Scholastics Books. Our students have enjoyed purchasing books in-person with the gracious support and coordination of our Library Assistant Sra. McNelly. 

I wish everyone a restful spring break. Take the time to create many new memories with your loved ones.

With gratitude, 

¡Nos despedimos compartiendo mucha gratitud! 

Sra. Lilien Perera Pérez
