“The earth has music for
those who listen.”
Dear Henry Wise Wood Students,
Parent/Guardians, and Community,
As we approach the long weekend, we
wish all of our families the best in honouring a variety of cultural and faith celebrations; it is certainly a
significant time for many in our Wise Wood community.
We are pleased to share the outstanding work by our student Environmental Club, as they are
working to improve the organics composting here at Wise Wood. We are looking forward to a
schoolyard clean up later this month, more information to come.
Our Spring Sports continue underway, Calgary weather not withstanding!
Please note the adjusted date for the next virtual School Council. This is moved to Monday, April 25
due to the upcoming long weekend.
A reminder that report cards are live on Tuesday; you will find a snapshot of your student’s learning at
this time. Please reach out to teachers with questions and thank you for continuing to support
students in a strong start to Term 4.
We are going to refresh our approach to the 30 Day Fast. We have re-envisioned it as the “Do What
You Can” Warrior Food Drive in support of the Calgary Interfaith Food Bank. Each grade level will be
invited to bring in food donations and to compete for the most successful grade. Staff will also have a
donation bin. Let’s take action together as Artists, Scholars, Champions to help those in need. This
short video captures the beautiful message of the hummingbird-

And finally, a reminder that there are no classes for students on Monday. Staff will be focusing on an
excellent day of professional learning in system-wide in person and virtual sessions, and right here at
Wise Wood in our subject area teams.
