Principal's Message

Weekly Up-Date September 24, 2020


Hello SWL Families,
Important Dates to Remember September 28 - Picture Day - Formal/Informal Uniforms required September 30 - Orange Shirt Day October 1 - Terry Fox Run October 5 - Meet the Teacher (virtual) October 8 - School/Parent Council Meeting (virtual)
I hope this finds you well and enjoying the first beautiful days of fall.  A few updates this week:
Picture Day Picture Day is on Monday, September 28.  Students are required to wear their TLC uniforms, either formal or informal. Remind them to smile for their photo J
School and Parent Council We will host our first School and Parent Council Annual General Meeting (AGM) on  Thursday, October 8 at 6:00 pm using Microsoft Teams as our virtual meeting place. Please complete the Sir Wilfrid Laurier School Council Form to let us know if you plan to attend. We have several Council positions to fill this year and would appreciate if you review the form and indicate if you can serve on a Council Position.  We will e-mail a teams invite to any parents wishing to attend. The link to this very short form and council invite is:  https://forms.gle/PgESFuZDGnMsMbU28
Meet the Teacher This year, as part of the guidelines regarding COVID pandemic, we will not be having families come into the school to meet the teachers, tour the school, and learn about their child's program of study.  Given the context we are currently living and working in, we need to adjust how we can achieve the outcome of connecting and communicating with parents and families.  With that in mind, our Meet the Teacher will proceed as follows:
On October 5, a School Messenger will be sent home with links to videos created by our teachers.  These will be introductory videos where you will learn about your child's teacher, the grade team and key components of your child's educational program.  In addition, homeroom teachers are making a phone call to parents of  students in their homeroom between now and October 5.  This will allow us to learn a bit more about our students and provide a few minutes for parents to personally connect with their child's lead teacher.
Parents/Guardians:  If you receive a phone call and the caller is not identified, please note this may be your child's teacher trying to reach you!
Orange Shirt Day On Sept. 30 we will participate in Orange Shirt Day using several resources provided by our Indigenous Education Team and SWL Learning Leader, Ms. Araki.   We would love to see as many students as possible wear an orange short on September 30.  We are going to watch a live streamed event, view a powerful power point presentation, then give opportunity for students to journal and reflect on the importance of truth and reconciliation.   Parents interested in watching the event can find out more here: https://nctr.ca/map.php
Terry Fox Fun On October 1, SWL students will participate in the Terry Fox Run in honour of the Marathon of Hope, which has raised hundreds of millions of dollars to support finding cures and treatments for cancers.  Students are asked to dress in  appropriate clothes and shoes for running outside, bring water bottles, and should do their best to bring a cash donation to support cancer research.  Last year, we did a great job fundraising.  Providing support to important lifesaving work is a key citizenship and character development component of the TLC Program.
I am very impressed with how the students are handling school this year.  Our HUB online students are up and running this week and I look forward to connecting virtually with them in the coming weeks.  Our in-school students are doing a great job following the safety protocols and are working well in their classrooms.
Have a wonderful week-end, Mr. Martin​
