In my last article I mentioned I would be writing more about YMCA at our school.

YMCA stands for “You Matter.  School Of Awesome”.

This is a school wide theme that we have put in place to counter bullying among members of our school community.

It consists of YMCA assemblies where students and staff present and discuss anti-bully strategies and techniques.

As well teachers have committed to teach and present several anti-bully lessons in their classes.

At the office we are also taking a different approach where students who are sent to the office write out what brought them to the office, what they could do differently next time and what type of help they need to change their behavior.

We believe we are already seeing a change in the school climate which has been very positive so far this year.

In November we will be having our Remembrance Day assembly on Friday, Nov. 9 at 11 a.m.

Ongoing events and clubs include, Operation Fresh Air Activities, skipping club, wrestling, and juggling clubs.

There are also Aboriginal Education activities and street hockey at lunch.

The PAC is also off and running and will be starting our Hot Lunch Program on Fridays starting November 9.

We will finish off November with our second Spirit Day where students are encouraged to dress up as a twin to someone famous or another student.

They can also be a triplet.

Finally 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 Elementary Update



The community is having a potluck for the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee at the weekend.

The children have been drawing portraits of the Queen and making posters.

They’ve also been learning the words to “God Save the Queen.”

On a more Canadian note we celebrated Thanksgiving and settling into the long winter freeze!

These children can’t wait for lots of snow.

Their teacher is not so keen!  Our swimming and gymnastics lessons in Canmore are drawing to a close.

We are really looking forward to celebrating Halloween and are planning to cook up some ghastly food for our Halloween lunch on Tuesday.

We love the crunch of bat wings in Field!
