Artist In Residence - Roger Dallaire
We thoroughly enjoyed our week with Monsieur Roger Dallaire! He spent 2-half hour periods with our K-2 classes, 3-half hour periods with our grade 3 classes and 2-one hour periods with each grade 4 and 5 class. We also had an opening assembly and a closing assembly! Our students learned all about Roger’s voyage by canoe from Rocky Mountain House to the Hudson’s Bay while learning traditional French-Canadian, First Nations and Metis songs and dances as well as engaging in some arts activities like making friendship bracelets modeled on the Metis sash and building family trees. What a rich, engaging learning opportunity for our students!
Here are some images from the final assembly which was so much FUN!
Next week, we will hold our Student-Led Conferences on Thursday, March 28 from 1:00-8:00 p.m. Our wonderful office ladies have shared with you some information on signing up for a time slot. You and your child will engage in some activities as organized by your child’s teacher which you will do together. This gives parents a peek into what their child is able to do in the various subject areas and the children are so proud to show you what they know!
Each spring, our school staff engages in creating a School Education Plan. This is both a reflective process and a generative one which helps us to set goals for student success and moving forward as a school community. Parent input into this process is a valued piece of this work. We collect feedback and suggestions from our School Council group and we also collect survey data from both the Provincial Accountability Survey and the District Satisfaction Survey. In addition to these things, this year I would like to extend an invitation to parents to drop in for coffee and a chat with me during Student-Led Conferences. I will be in the school library from 1:00-4:00 p.m. and again in the evening from 5:30-7:30. There will be some baskets of activities for your child(ren) to do while we talk. Please feel welcome to drop in to chat about anything you’ve been thinking about education and our school. I am looking forward to hearing your ideas about many topics. One in particular that I’d like feedback on is our Christmas Concert. Staff and School Council have a few ideas to (potentially) change up what we do for our annual holiday celebration that I’d like to share with you and I welcome any new ideas that you may have as well! If these times do not work for you, feel free to hunt me down in the school when you are here, give me a call: 403-346-5765 or shoot me an email: email@example.com
