 PRINCIPAL'S MESSAGE

Principal’s Message

May has arrived and with it comes the promise of sunshine, beautiful spring flowers, ball games and lots of time to play outside. During April our Virtue of the Month was flexibility. We spent time helping our students understand that sometimes things change and that we can adapt but many classrooms also talked about and demonstrated flexible thinking.  Flexible thinking allows students to switch gears and look at things differently and it plays a key role in all learning.

Our virtue for May is Self Discipline. This is similar to self control. We will work with our students to help them control their behavior and their emotion, so they are able to act instead of react, set goals and focus on a task.

In April we wrapped up the basketball season and our girls and boys did a great job! They had fun, improved their skills and really did a good job of representing our school. Many thanks to our coaches Mr. Brennan, Mr. Sparrow and Mr. Armstrong. Congratulations all. Track and Field begins this month and students in Grades 3-6 are invited to try out for the team. We also held our Volunteer Tea and had an opportunity to honour those who volunteer at our school. We are so thankful for those who are able to give of their time. It is always helpful to have an extra set of hands. Thank you to all.

During the month of May our students will be completing several types of district assessments- school wide write, reading assessment and a math assessment. The information is collected and used to monitor our progress towards our goals. It also helps to determine the strengths of individual students and work areas too.

We are starting to create classes for next year and work hard to make sure they are balanced. Teachers spend several hours adding students in and then moving them around so each class has similar strengths and challenges. We also try to balance male/female and make sure each child has at least one friend. They are not always perfect but we do put a great deal of thought into them.

Enjoy this beautiful month and thank you for your continued support and encouragement. I feel very lucky to be able to spend part of my day at PromontoryAs always my door is open, please don’t hesitate to stop in, call or email me. I am not always in my office but certainly do want to connect with you if you wish to meet.

PARKING LOT INFORMATION

The parking lot is much smaller this year and is for Pick Up and Drop Off only. Please see detailed information under Announcements Tab- Parking Lot. We have 2 designated parking spaces for those with handicap tags. Any adult wishing to wait with their child will need to park on the side streets and walk. We will have Griffen Security helping us manage our parking lot. Parents/students are encouraged to walk or wheel to school or arrange for car pick up spots off of the school parking lot site. Thank you so much for your patience and help with this. We are under construction this year and will do our best to keep you up to date. Thank you for your cooperation.
