Principal's Message

End of School Year Message

We have heard countless times, from countless sources, that this year is a year that will be remembered.  We are sure that all of those sources are referring to the global pandemic, however for us, it will be because of the outstanding year at WO Mitchell School!
We served amazing students and amazing families.  Rich learning experiences were the hallmarks of each child's experiences.  We learned to do new things, and traditional things in new ways.  And, most importantly, we were together!
To our WOM parents, thank you for your unconditional support of our work, and for your commitments to our community's health.  To our School Council, thank you for your partnership in leading this amazing school.  To our students, thank you for your optimism, your excitement for learning, and your commitments to take care of each other during this most memorable year!
To our incredible staff…it is easy to be the administrative team of this school because of the people who work here.  Your dedication to excellence, to your students, and to our community inspire and elevate our spirits every day.  Only those who do the work can truly appreciate how intense your work has been this year, and from the bottom of our hearts, Thank You!
As we look to September, please remember:
The first day of school is Wednesday, September 1 (this is before the long weekend).
Kindergarten students will have staggered entry, with students having surnames A-L starting on September 1 and students having surnames M-Z starting on Thursday, September 2.
We await news from Alberta Health and the Alberta Ministry of Education as to how COVID-19 protocols may be adapted for the 2021-22 school year.  Until then, we have been asked to consider current organizational strategies/processes/protocols as our 'starting place'.
You will hear from your child's new teacher on Tuesday, August 31, through email, where they will introduce themselves to your family, and will outline first day procedures.
 
This year end message, to us, is not complete without acknowledging the horrible and evolving news that is emerging for our First Nation's communities, especially as it relates to the identification of unmarked graves at former residential school sites.  But in despair there is often hope. We believe that, if we truly listen to the perspective and paths forward being offered by our Indigenous People, and we take action as suggested by them, then we will find hope for better days for all!
And until those better days come, we wish you and yours a wonderful summer vacation. 
Susan Coveyduck and Liz McManus​, Administrative Team, WO Mitchell School
