Message from Administration | September

 

On behalf of all the staff, welcome to the 2016-2017 school year at Haultain Memorial School. It has been wonderful to see the smiles of all of our new and returning students during the first few days.  Our students are settling in well to the routines and being back at school.

 

The beginning of the school year is an exciting time for parents, students and teachers.  As a staff, we are dedicated to building a safe, compassionate community of learners. We will strive to nurture our students’ confidence and enthusiasm for learning. We will continue to strengthen our partnerships with parents as we know that helping your child succeed is a responsibility we share with you, the parents. We encourage you to get to know your child’s teacher and become actively involved in your child’s education.  As an administrative team, we value the role you play in your child’s education and we welcome communication via email, telephone, and in person.

Our weekly schedule will continue to include Friday early dismissal at 12:00 PM.  This schedule allows our staff consistent time for professional learning opportunities.  Every month, we send out a school newsletter and calendar on our website.  Classroom teachers will also be posting weekly agenda messages through their classroom blogs.  Classroom blogs should be up and running shortly. The link to your child’s classroom bog can be found at http://schools.cbe.ab.ca/b362/classroom_blogs.htm

 

The School Council is holding their annual Ice Cream Social on Thursday, September 15th at 6-7pm.  This is an opportunity for parents and community members to connect with the staff members to build new relationships and strengthen existing ones.  We look forward to seeing you there. The School Council AGM will be on Tuesday September 13th, starting at 6:30 PM. This is an excellent opportunity for parents to meet other parents and support the learning in the school. All parents are welcome to come to School Council meetings.

 

We are happy to have each of you as part of our learning team. Should you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us!

 

Kindly Yours,
Darby McAsey, Principal
Kirk Newman, Assistant Principal

Kindergarten registration for the 2016-2017 school year is ongoing. If you have a child who is born between March 2, 2010 and March 1, 2011 they are eligible to start Kindergarten September 2016. Our office hours are 8:00am-3:00pm. You must register in person with proof of your child's name, date of birth, and proof of residence.

 

We will do our best to accommodate requests for AM/PM preferences. If too many people request a particular time, we may have to do a lottery. If necessary we will conduct a lottery (draw) in early March. We will confirm morning and afternoon placement during the second week in March and any families who register after March 4 will be placed in classes according to the space available.

 

When you come to the school to register, please bring your child’s proof of age and legal name (birth certificate or passport) and proof of your address (driver’s license, offer to purchase, offer to lease or utility bill).
For more information about the registration process, please visit the CBE Website link at CBE Website.
