Principal's Message

June 4, 2021

​AHS COVID19 Rapid Testing at Sir Wilfrid Laurier School On June 9, Alberta Health contractors will be performing COVID19 Rapid Testing for Grade 6 and 7 students at Sir Wilfrid Laurier School.  Today (Friday) your child will be bringing home an information package and consent form.
If you wish to have your child tested, sign the consent form and return it to the school on Monday, June 7.    Do not return the form if you do not give your consent.
Principal's Message The summer weather has finally arrived and vaccination roll outs for Albertans aged 12 and over are going well.  As we see vaccination numbers increase, it gives a sign of hope and anticipation to bring back so much of the work and programming we enjoyed providing to our students before the pandemic. Thank you to our parents for getting student vaccinations booked as soon as possible.
Please remember to pack a water bottle,  a healthy lunch/snacks, and dress in clothing that is appropriate for school and warmer weather.
Congratulations to our Kiwanis Watch Award Winners who were recognized for being outstanding citizens,  and to Ariam who took first place in a province wide essay writing contest, and to Shaurya for placing in the top 50 students in a nation wide math contest.  So great to see our students excelling in citizenship and academics. 
We are preparing Awards Celebrations (tailored and modified due to COVID) and will provide a YouTube link on June 17 for the grade 9 Farewell and June 18 for grades 6-8.  Early Dismissal days that were scheduled in June will be used to assess students in ALL academic subjects. We have subscribed to exam bank and Solara for students who want to practice and study beforehand.
We have heavy hearts this week as we discuss and come to terms with the terrible discovery of the remains of 215 Indigenous children at a former residential school in Kamloops.  We support truth and reconciliation at SWL, and this week and throughout our time together at SWL, we will continue to build and bridge understanding and show solidarity with residential school survivors. 
We welcome our grade 8 and 9 students back to in-person learning on June 11.  Until then, be safe and be well.  Wishing you a lovely weekend.
 
Sincerely, Mr. Martin Principal
