Principal's Message

The Week Ahead - October 25


Good afternoon, Colonel Irvine School community. 
As part of that commitment and ongoing learning, today during our Indigenous block, we all participated in learning about Chanie Wenjack and participated in the Walk for Wenjack today. Colonel Irvine has the privilege of being a Legacy School through the national program called the Gord Downie & Chanie Wenjack Fund. The Legacy Schools program is a free national initiative to engage, empower and connect students and educators to further reconciliation through awareness, education, and action (#reconciliACTION). Students wrote commitments on orange paper and these were combined to make trees outside the school. They were up today and will be up again next week. Ask your students what they learned today about Chanie.
On a completely different note, we have asked students to no longer have lunch in the park to the west of the school. They are to stay on the school fields. There has been constant garbage over there and after many reminders there has been no change. Wednesday, one of our neighbors picked up two bags of garbage and brought it to us. We will continue to reinforce to students the need to be good stewards of themselves and the school. 
We would also appreciate it if you would have a discussion with your students regarding Tik Tok trends/challenges and the inappropriateness of carrying any of these out and school. We do not want these carried out as school, it can be harmful to others and destroy school property. We'd ask that parents remind their child to follow CBE's Student Code of Conduct.  https://www.cbe.ab.ca/GovernancePolicies/AR6005-Student-Code-of-Conduct.pdf 
Today, we also discussed lockdown protocols with students in anticipation of our first practice lockdown on Monday afternoon. 
Next Friday the 29th will be our costume day for Hallowe'en. If students wish to dress-up please remember that costume face masks cannot be worn at school, that pretend weapons need to stay at home, and that costumes must be in line with the school dress code.  
We hope all our families continue to be safe, well and healthy. Together we can support the ongoing learning and well-being of our students, staff, and community. 
Thank you for your continued support. 
Ms. Ko & Ms. Dalwood 
Dates to Remember: 
Tuesday, October 26 – Picture Retake Day (AM only) 
We encourage students to bring their original proof package to show the photographer how they would like to improve their original photo. However, this is not required to get a retake photo.   
Thursday, November 11 – Remembrance Day – School Closed 
Friday, November 12 – Non-Instruction Day for students 
Wednesday, November 24, 4-8pm - Online Parent Teacher Interviews (more info to come) 
Grade 5/6 Music (Instrument Play) Survey 
Earlier this month we let parents know we would delay the playing of instruments that required the removal of masks until at least November 1. That date is quickly approaching and we would like to get a sense from parents at this point about their comfort level with renewing instrument play. Your feedback will help to guide our decisions. We will send the survey home Monday in both paper and as an attachment directly to grade 5/6 music parents. Please complete and return it so that we can understand parent concerns and inform you of our decision in next Friday's Week Ahead.

Monday – Italian Meatball Subs 
Tuesday – Chicken Ranch Wraps
