Masks, School Council Meeting, CWS Clothing, Library Books | Sept. 28-Oct. 2 WAG

Principal Message
As many of you know, I grew up in a hamlet, farming. How small was that hamlet? It had one road that led through it, maybe 40 people. While I was little, it was great fun to run wild: through the forest, the fields, the grass, swim in the lake, play in the river. And, how could I forget, chores! As I got older though, I realized that I really, really wanted a different lifestyle. Education was one way to change my life. [...]

SOGO, Student Teachers, Meet the Teachers, Class Sizes | Sept. 21-25 WAG

Principal Message
Dear Parents & Guardians,
The SOGO residency was well received by staff and students alike. Spending time with the kindergarten day each morning to meet the supervision ratio allowed me to get to know the whole class.

Visit from the Chief Superintendent

Our chief superintended Christopher Usih is visiting our school on Monday, October 19.
I am looking forward to discuss CWS with him.
The Grade 4, 5 and 6 completed the survey OurSchool this week. The grade 6 students met three questions that had them stumped. These questions involved their parents – you! The questions were: did your mom/dad/step-parents finish high school? Did you attend a college/trade school? Did you earn a bachelor degree? I was very surprised to find out that most students did NOT know the answer to these questions. When I asked, I got replies like: My dad fixes stuff/My mom goes to work and comes back home/My mom helps people.
I encourage you, over dinner, to speak with your child/ren about your education, your educational journey and your job! It is important for them to hear about your journey – including the struggles you may have faced and how you overcame them. Life is messy and kids need to know that that is ok.
This week, I spent Tuesday and Wednesday morning covering the kindergarten class. We worked on their usual centres, but they also learned about Brain Gym and how to ‘light up’ their brain. Excellent activities for any student (and also adults!). Go and check it out!
