Principal's Message

June 28, 2022


We have had a year full of amazing experiences, rich learning and meaningful connections at West Springs School this year! Students and staff have persevered as individuals and we have thrived as a school community under our new norms and with a renewed optimism for how we can come together in learning. We have created and found slices of joy whenever and wherever we could.
I am so proud of the work of the students and I know that the staff were committed to excellence in teaching and learning and the evidence of that excellence was on full display over the past few weeks at the school as I visited classrooms and marveled at the student work during the various sharing assemblies. I can't wait to see what next year brings; for those who are returning in the fall, we will see you soon! For those who are moving on or leaving our community, all the best to you and your family.
The school will send out an email on August 30th explaining the first day of school process. Please be sure to email westsprings@cbe.ab.ca if you change your email over the summer so that we have your most current information. 
I would like to leave you all with the lyrics to an original song, written this spring by the very talented Mr. Vooys. The Grade 4 students sang this beautiful song during the Grade 4 celebration assembly this week. I felt I had to share it as the song moved me so deeply: as I listened to the melody and heard the heartfelt words sang, I thought about all the many people who have helped make this year the success it was.
Have a wonderful summer! Sincerely,
Susan Westgate, Principal
 
 
Remember Your Smile
By Mr. Peter J. Vooys
For the West Springs School Grade 4s, 2022
 
Verse 1
There are a million moments,
They make up our years,
That vanish as the days pass,
But some remain clear,
 
A thousand fading mem'ries,
Like first tying your shoes,
But what remains are the echoes,
From people like you,
 
Chorus
Times that were good,
Times that were bad,
I count all the memories:
The happy and sad,
Time spent with you, 
Was always worthwhile,
I stop and look back, and I remember your smile,
 
Verse 2
There were a hundred days where,
We stared at our screens,
Not knowing if we'd get back,
To where we had been,
 
There were a dozen times,
I doubted I'd make it through,
But you looked down and assured me,
That you were there, too,
 
Chorus
 
Verse 3
There was one great big moment,
We stepped on the stage,
Prepared to end the chapter,
And turn the next page,
 
As we looked out on the people,
That helped us this far,
Knowing the care you've shown,
Will live inside of our hearts,
 
Chorus​
