Principal's Message

February 15


Dear Killarney Families,                                                           Feb 15, 2021
Happy Family Day! We would love to hear from you (via email to Bonnie or Lucene) how you are honouring the day. Bonnie did a daytrip to her childhood playground in the Crowsnest Pass and it brought a flood of memories of family members dearly missed. It also brought great joy to be outside among nature's best in the mountains of southern Alberta. Lucene enjoyed a getaway weekend in the mountains closer to home with her family. She, too, enjoyed the fresh air and time with her young adult children and husband! However you spent the day, we hope you took some time to do what makes you happy with those who make you happiest!
We have officially reached the midpoint of the school year! With so many things already accomplished, we also have so many things yet to tackle.
Thank you, KPC, and generous parents for the love-ly treats last week! What a wonderful surprise to find popcorn and cookies in the staffroom on the coldest of days. Your thoughtfulness warmed our hearts and we greatly appreciated you thinking of us! * note:  Leah M's maple sugar cookies were absolutely binge-worthy!
The staff enjoyed a couple of days of great learning at convention last Thursday and Friday. With so many presentations available through an online format, our days were full!  We know everyone has brought something back to implement in classrooms from regulation strategies to reading interventions.
KPC Update:
Mark your calendars: Next KPC monthly meeting is next Tuesday, February 16th, 2021. (Click here to join the meeting).  All Killarney families are welcome and encouraged to attend.  This month's meeting will feature an update from Mrs. Caldwell and Mrs. Tahmazian, teacher presentations from Mrs. Laing-Chan, Ms. Sawatzky, and Ms. McBrien, and an update on Killarney's 150th Legacy Project.  KPC Treasurer, Sharlene C. will also present the 2020-21 KPC budget followed by a "Montessori Moment" from Mrs. Caldwell.
Volunteers needed: We are actively seeking volunteers to help with the Legacy Project and to represent Killarney School/KPC at Montessori Alternative Public School Society (MAPSS) and Council of School Council (COSC) meetings.  These monthly meetings are all held virtually throughout the school year.
Stay in touch: for more information about the Killarney Parent Council, opportunities to get more involved and/or to find out how we are supporting our children, teachers and families at Killarney School, please check us out at:

**A reminder to respect our neighbours and staff by not parking in front of driveways on the north side of the school or in the staff parking lot.
Montessori Moment:
 To be part of our Montessori alternative program means having the belief that your child will thrive academically, socially, emotionally, and personally during their time with us at Killarney School. For our staff, Montessori isn't just a teaching methodology or philosophical belief. Montessori is who we are. It is part of the fabric of our school, the essence of our being.  To be a Montessori student, teacher, or parent means our beliefs and values are grounded in the education of the whole child. We have included a link below for parents to consider how the work you do on a daily basis is already the work of a Montessori parent!

We hope to see you tomorrow (Tuesday) evening at our virtual KPC meeting!
With Gratitude,
Bonnie and Lucene
