Principal's Message

April 15, 2021


Hello SWL Families,
The Spring weather has arrived bringing some relief, warmth and joy during these difficult times.  Please make note of a few announcements for this week, the most important being the move to online learning for grades 7-12.
GRADE 7-12 ONLINE
If you have not heard the announcement from the provincial government, our students in grades 7-9 will move to online school effective Monday, April 19.  At this time, we have been told this is for a two week period. Please ensure your child takes home their belongings, including their violins.  Grade 7-9 students are to follow their timetables and attend classes virtually.  It is important we do not lose momentum in our learning so please discuss with your child that school assignments and work will continue as will grading and assessment.  Please contact the school or e-mail your child's teacher if you experience any difficulty accessing classes online or if you have any questions or need further support.  The school office remains open.
Grade  6 students will continue with in-person learning.  They are quite excited to have the whole school to themselvesJ

ALBERTA EDUCATION ASSURANCE SURVEY
Grade 7 parents should have received access codes in the mail from Alberta Education.  We appreciate you taking the time to complete the survey as it provides valuable information to support our school program.  The survey closes April 23.  Please contact the school if you have not received a code.
SCHOOL EVENTS
Congratulations to our students who participated in the Young Writers' Conference and to our grade 9 students who put together some amazing presentations for our YPI project.  The Finals are tomorrow so stay tuned for notice of the winning team.  We are now moving forward with an essay writing contest.  Good luck, SWL students!
Final call for students to sign up for the virtual talent show.
These are challenging times as we pivot between in-person and online teaching and learning.  Your children are doing remarkably well and really showing us some solid academic growth.  I hope this helps ease your minds somewhat.  Thank you for your ongoing support of education as we continue to do our utmost to provide continuity, support and care. 
Enjoy the rest of your week.
 
Mr. Martin​
