We Are Proud of Our Students and Staff

At Colonel Sanders School we are proud of our students' understanding of the importance of safety drills. It is always impressive to see our grade 1-4 students exiting the school in such a calm manner for our yearly fire drills. We have already completed our first two drills of the 2022-2023 school year and, as usual, the students demonstrated a high level of wisdom and respect!
We had the opportunity to welcome Frank Turning Robe to our school. He shared his experiences at Residential Schools with our students, as well as his perspective on building bridges with people and communities and his desire to focus on the positive. We learned about Frank Turning Robe's Truth, which enhances our study of our own personal Truths. Students were recognized at a Character Assembly for recognizing their Truth, as well as working toward and/or using strategies to support themselves in developing through their Truth.
As a staff we have been focused on the New Alberta Curriculum for English Language Arts and Literature, Mathematics, and Physical Education and Wellness. We are working on developing common understandings of how students will show what they know in reading, writing, and mathematics. This will enable us to be clear with our academic expectations for students and support clear communication of student progress to families.
We have several items coming up! Inculding Remembrance Day, Universal Children's Day and our second round of Learning Conferences.
Universal Children's Day is an opportunity for students and staff to wear traditional clothing to school to share a bit about their cultural background. It is a time to embrace each person for who they are and to build understanding, bridges and links with other cultures. This year the school, with the financial support of our School Council, is planning to host an Indigenous presentation which will include dancers and singers. We are in the final stages of the planning process! This will be an amazing day filled with learning and pride!​
