Welcome back! Our first day back to School is January 6th. I would like to welcome two new staff members to Carseland School. Jasmine Leys will be working as an Educational Assistant in the kindergarten classroom on Wednesday & Fridays and Courtney Davis will be working Wednesdays at our school with the Gr.3/4 class freeing up Mrs. Styan to do some instructional coaching and collaborating with our teachers. Courtney has her Bachelor of Arts (Sir Wilfrid Laurier University) and Bachelor of Education (Queens University). She has previously been at our school to substitute in the Gr.3/4 class. Both of these ladies will be great addition to our staff.
Our virtue for this month is honesty. The School Council meeting is on Monday January 13th at 7:00 p.m. in the grade six room everyone is welcome. There has been a calendar change from the original calendar handbooks that went out at the beginning of the year. The teacher professional development day is now on January 31st instead of January 30th which means the students will have the Friday off instead of the Thursday.
This year for our annual ski trip to Nakiska we will be expanding the grades that are able to participate to all students in grades 3-6. The date of this ski trip will be Friday February 28th. More details will be sent home soon.
Have a great month!!!
