Go for the 'W'

Dear Parents of Sibylla Kiddle School,

Happy New Year and welcome back! At times, we can all use a little extra motivation. You may be struggling after only a week of attempting a New Year’s resolution. The cold weather only motivates me to find a warm blanket and the daily COVID news does little to inspire.

Making the rounds on social media has been seven year old Callan Perks from Ontario. In late November, he won a contest to give a motivational pre-game speech to the Peterborough Petes hockey team. His speech has gone viral and has garnered him interviews with Ellen and Good Morning America. You will definitely want to look up ‘Coach Cal’ on YouTube to see his original speech along with his motivational words and style on various shows.

Coach Cal is only seven years old but in an innocent manner he uses his voice and his talents to motivate those around him to ‘Go for the W’. There is much to distract us but as we enter into 2022, let’s ‘Go for the W’ together. As a school, we look forward to supporting our students’ individual strengths and talents in order to bring out the best in their learning. We look forward to developing our expertise as educators, as we improve our professional skills. We look forward to working with you, our parent community, as partners in the learning journey of our students. I hope 2022 brings you and your child(ren) a great big ‘W’. We can do this.

Brad Emery
