Nice colors – Blake Austin and Kodi Joe Nichols - buddies working together on a get-to-know you pro- ject in keeping with the ‘Building a better world’ theme.

The new school year is well underway as we enter into the middle of September. This week, parents were invited to voice their opinions at the first parent council meeting of the year on Monday, Sept. 14, at 7 p.m. Thanks to all the parents who took the time to support their children’s education by being involved.

Parents were also invited to attend an Internet Safety presentation by Ralph Cervi on Sept. 15. Topics covered were chat rooms, cyber bullying and keeping your kids safe on the internet.

I thought I’d let you know how the students are doing with this return to routine. So far, kindergarten students are reading Chicka Chicka Boom Boom and beginning to recognize the letters in their own name. Grade 1 and 2 students are studying colours in Science and “My World” in Social Studies. Grade 3 and 4 are enjoying learning about rocks and minerals and different countries like Tunisia, Peru, India and Ukraine. Grade 5 and 6 students are studying Canadian government and sky science. The highlight for Grade 7 and 8 boys so far, was a field trip to the driving range at Pheasantback Golf Course with Mr. Faught. Some students expressed that their favourite things so far at school were going to church, science, math and of course, recess.

Next week, teachers will head off to Wainwright for an ATA local professional development day on September 25, 2009. Students will have a day off. Mark your calendars for “Meet the Teacher Night” which is scheduled for Monday, Sept. 28, 2009.
