We Are Still Deep in the Throws of Winter!

Whether you believe it or not Feb 2, 2023 (Ground Hog Day) has come and gone and we are still deep in the throws of winter! Some say the ground hog saw his shadow other say not! We say let’s keep the warm clothes and hats and mittens on for a bit longer so we can enjoy some great outdoor learning activities including outdoor recess! On that note we are getting a very long row of lost and found (but mostly lost) items and we need families who are missing items to come in a check it out!

Ms. Bates has officially started her leave and is waiting patiently for the new arrival to their family. Acting Principal Mr. Bulloch started in the school on January 30, 2023 and is very excited to be at GWS! Please feel free to contact him ( dabulloch@cbe.ab.ca) or Ms. Klassen our Assistant Principal with any questions or concerns you may have. We also want to welcome Ms. Bains who will be adding her talents to the Grade 5/6 team until the end of June to support learning in those groupings!

Principal's Update

Dear Parents

 My name is Jeff Campbell and I am the new Interim Principal of Guy Weadick School. I arrived here a couple weeks ago and I’ve been enjoying getting to know our students, parents and staff. Mrs. Bates is set to return from her Parental leave in early June. Guy Weadick is certainly a warm and welcoming place to be!

Casino

Thanks so much to the many parents, family members, teachers, and community members for volunteering at our Guy Weadick Casino on March 20 and 21. These Casinos only come up every 18 months, but they bring in a lot of money for us to spend on our students. The money from the last casino was spent on many items such as: New Laptops, Laptop Carts, Smartboards, and lots more!​

​Staffing Updates

At this time we extend our thoughts and best wishes to Mrs. Gill who is a grade ½ teacher in room 5. Mrs. Gill is on a medical leave and we have moved the wonderful Mrs. Morrison from her Resource Teacher role into room 5. Also at this time Mrs. Leifer, who teaches grade 2/3 teacher in room 8 is on a medical leave. In her place we welcome Mrs. Patterson who will be their teacher until Mrs. Leifer returns. Please join me in sending our thoughts and best wishes for a speedy recovery to Mrs. Gill and Mrs. Leifer.

Sincerely,

Jeff Campbell

Interim Principal, Guy Weadick School

Call for Volunteers

Parents and Guardians,

 

I am writing to on behalf of our School Council.  They are preparing for the school's largest fundraiser and need your help.

 

Like many school, sports and fine arts organizations our school council has agreed to provide volunteers to fill various unpaid jobs at a local casino.  These jobs are completed by volunteers and require no previous experience or knowledge about casinos.  All volunteers are given training, guidance and direction from helpful and friendly advisors.

 

Our School Council has agreed to provide 38 volunteers on Sunday March 20 and Monday March 21 for a variety of shifts.   The Casino is at Pure Casino Calgary (1420 Meridian Rd NE – SE of Barlow Trail and 16 Avenue NE) and shifts are both during the day and evening (details are available on SignUp Genius).

 

This fundraiser provides support for many learning opportunities, performances, presentations and extension materials and resources that enrich the school's learning opportunities for students. 

 

To sign up for a shift please go to SignUp Genius: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/4090b44ada923a5f49-pure. You can easily see the available shifts.  We need all of these spaces to be filled by parents, guardians, friends and relatives.  If you are not able, perhaps a family member or friend would be willing to take a shift. 

 

We are appealing to you now because it is extremely important and the Casino is approaching quickly.

 

This is your opportunity to support our school and provide resources for students.  A shift of a few hours means thousands of dollars of funding for the extras that can make school so much more interesting and engaging.

 

Please feel free to call the school if you have questions or we can put you in touch with members of our School Council (403 777-6740).

 

SignUp Genius is easy to use: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/4090b44ada923a5f49-pure

 

Thank you and we look forward to seeing you.
