Weekly Message #4-3

imagesIt seems that the summer weather is over.  I am looking out the window as I write this message and it is pouring rain – particularly sad as our annual block party and barbecue are scheduled to start in an hour!  Oh well, we’ll see what happens.

A couple of urgent things to take care of this week – 1) planning for our “Meet the Teacher” event on Wed. Sept 25th.  2) planning for our pro-d day on Sept. 30th.

First of all, you had indicated that you wanted to do something different this year for Meet the Teacher that would draw in more parents.  Anyone who is interested in brainstorming some ideas is welcome to join me in the staffroom at recess on Monday.  We should get our plan in place asap so we can get ready and inform our community

Secondly, we have Adrienne Gear (reading) and Lori Sherritt-Fleming (writing) booked for Sept 30th for our pro-d day.  The general format is set with the intermediates and primaries spending half a day each with our presenters.  Both presenters have asked for some guidance about how to focus their presentations / workshops.  I’d like to meet with the pro-d committee on Tuesday at recess to discuss some specifics that we can share with Adrienne and Lori.

Hard to believe we are already 2 weeks in but we have accomplished a lot in that time.  It promises to be a fast paced and exciting year.


  1. Meet the teacher brainstorming at recess on Monday in the staffroom – all are welcome.
  2. Former staff member, Dianne Guild, will be here at lunch on Monday to share goodies and conversation.  Please join us in the staffroom.
  3. Barb, Peggy, Henry and I will be interviewing 3 candidates for our Gr. 3 / Resource position after school on Wednesday. Our other two postings (Kindergarten and .2 Resource) will close at 4:30 on Monday.  If you are interested in serving on the shortlisting / interview committee, please let me know.
  4. Resource team meeting to finalize class assignments 11 – 12 on Tuesday.
  5. Information for staff on resource team assignments will be provided at lunch on Tuesday in the staffroom.  Please join us.
  6. Patti & Henry will be at the Superintendent’s meeting on Wednesday morning.  Paul is in charge in our absence.
  7. Gwen will attend the final organization meeting for the “Wonder of Reading” at John Oliver on Wednesday morning.  Five divisions have been selected to attend the event. (Classes of the students who are competing in the Battle of the Books)

Have a great week everyone!
