Principal Alexander Park School

Can spring really finally be here? At last, gone are snow pants, toques, winter boots, and thankfully almost all of the snow from the playground at Alexander Park.

With the warmer weather, children are eagerly going outside at recess and lunch to play soccer, games of tag, and to practice their skipping skills.

The next few weeks are going to be jammed packed at A.P.E.S. as several special events are scheduled.

Students will be treated to Lady Grey’s performance of ‘No Strings Attached,’ as well as a band concert from a high school in Calgary, a Parks Canada presentation, and ‘Masabo’ a cultural performance.

Students will have many opportunities to practice being a polite audience member.

As well, students are celebrating our wonderful planet and learning about Earth Day, and the importance of recycling, reusing, and reducing.

The children are asked to do their best everyday to bring earth friendly snacks and lunch.

For their snacks and lunches, students are encouraged to bring sandwiches, other main dishes, fresh fruits and vegetables, and treats in reusable lunch containers.

The use of cloth napkins, stainless-steel forks and spoons, reusable drink containers and lunch boxes also helps to decrease the amount of lunch time garbage we usually have at the school.

If you have forgotten to register your child for Kindergarten next fall, it’s not too late to do so.

Please come to the school and register your child as soon as possible.

If there is a possibility that your child, presently in Kindergarten to Grade 2, will not be attending Alexander Park next year, please inform the office as soon as possible.

We are already working on class configurations and staffing for the 2012/2013 school year and we can better meet the needs of students next year with accurate enrollment data.

Parents are asked to be on the lookout for the ‘A.P.E.S. Chatter’ and individual class newsletters for the latest information and dates on what is happening around Alexander Park School.

The last few months of this school year promise to be very busy.
