Lady Grey You Matter. Community of Awesome “YMCA”

The principal of Lady Grey and Field Elementary schools updates what is happening at the schools.

Lady Grey and Field

Believe it or not we have completed our first month of school. Our School Growth Plan was discussed with our School Planning Council (SPC) meeting last week and was presented to our Golden School Board Trustees on Oct. 2 Our research questions are: 1 Would three times a week pull out, using the Read Naturally Program, with our most vulnerable readers improve the reading fluency by at least one grade level?  2. Bullying behaviour at the grade 4-7 level is a concern.  With the recent delivery of the Red Cross  Beyond the Hurt workshop, and class participation in the No Put Down Books, would direct teaching follow up, regular class lessons along with a school wide goal in the fall reduce bullying behaviour?  Teachers have met collaboratively over the last two weeks to make these goals a reality.  Look to our next month’s article to explain further:  “You Matter – Community of Awesome” YMCA.

For lunch hour activities we are currently offering running club, boys and girls wrestling, Mrs. Tresierra crafts etc., street hockey, Circus Arts, and Operation Fresh Air activities.

All of our students have just completed their Sept. District Write.  Teachers will be marking these next week to help guide them in planning for instruction in Language Arts. September ended off with Mrs. Kelly McArthur’s class doing an excellent job of organizing our school Terry Fox Run.

Upcoming events include Student/Parent/Teacher interviews on Oct. 15-17 and photo retakes on Tuesday, Oct. 23 . The PAC is also off and running and are looking forward to an active year in supporting The Hot Lunch Program and other activities.  Next PAC meeting is Monday, Oct. 29, 7:00  PM in the library.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the students, staff and parents who make Lady Grey such a great place to be.

 

Field School Happenings

At Field School, the little school in the mountains, we’ve had a great start to the year.  As the weather has been so fantastic, we’ve spent a lot of time hiking and enjoying the outdoors.  Our trip to Lake O’Hara was very memorable because there was fresh snow and the children were able to make small snowmen!

They scampered along the trail like seasoned mountain goats with not one word of complaint.  One of new moms was surprised by how ambitious the hike was and commented, ‘ This Field trip is hardcore!’

Our days of water, sand, rocks and mud are winding down, so we will be ready to start swimming and gymnastics lessons in Canmore next week.  We will also celebrate the wonder of living in such a beautiful place at our Thanksgiving lunch on Friday.
