 This week, students started auditioning for the main roles. Once roles are established, we will then be meeting on a more regular basis during the lunch hour and sometimes after school.

“Seussical the Musical” performances will take place in the gym during the evenings of April 30th and May 1st.

TRANSPORTATION UPDATE

Edmonton Catholic Schools is excited to introduce the use of GPS technology on our yellow school buses with a new app called Bus Finder. This initiative supports the District’s continued commitment to providing safe and efficient transportation. Bus Finder is based on using the GPS tracking devices installed on the school buses. GPS coordinates are transmitted to the District’s network server and then matched to the routing software.

Bus Finder will provide parents with:

  • real time information on the location of their child’s bus
  • accurate and timely information on bus delays
  • minimize the time students may have to wait outside at the bus stop which is especially important in cold weather conditions

Please refer to the following documents for more information on how to access Bus Finder:

Alberta Education 2019 Accountability Pillar surveys

As an annual check-up on the education system, the Accountability Pillar provides an opportunity for Alberta Education and school authorities to ensure that we are equipping students for success.

The Accountability Pillar uses a set of 16 indicators. Data on these indicators consists of surveys of students, parents and teachers on various aspects of education quality, student outcomes such as dropout and high school completion rates, and provincial assessments of student learning.

From January to the end of February, Alberta Education will be conducting the annual Accountability Pillar Survey.

  • In January, parents of students in grades 4 – 6 will receive a survey from Alberta Education.
  • In February, students in grades 4 – 6 and all teachers will be completing their surveys online at school.

All surveys are anonymous and ask questions about experiences with your school.  In addition to English and French, the parent survey is available in Chinese, Punjabi, Arabic, Blackfoot, Dene, Cree, Korean, Spanish, Tagalog and Urdu.

Your participation in the survey helps provide important information on the quality of education your child is receiving. Survey results will be available to school authorities in May, and will be reported publicly as part of their 3-Year Education Plans and Annual Education Results Reports. Thank you for providing your feedback.

Traffic and Parking Procedures

With the start of a new year, we would like to remind parents of some key elements of our Traffic and Parking Procedures.

Drop-Off and Pick-Up Zone:

  • Families living in the community are strongly encouraged to walk, bike, carpool, etc. to and from school.
  • Before and after school, vehicles cannot be left unattended while in the drop off zone (driver must be present).
  • ALL VEHICLES must move forward to fill empty spots in the drop off lane.

MWI Parking Lot

The parking lot directly in front of our school is not for parents in order to create the safest area for our students. The parking lot is reserved for ECSD staff and school buses from 8:15am to 3:40pm. This applies to parents who are dropping off or picking up their child (ren) during the day.

Crosswalks

Please ensure you are not parking or stopping by our crosswalks. Posted signs and traffic cones assist with marking where vehicles are not allowed to park/stop. Vehicles parked in or beside our crosswalks reduce drivers’ visibility of children and adults using our crosswalks. This results in a serious concern for the safety of our children and their parents.

Traffic becomes more congested between 8:30-8:40 am and 3:15-3:30 pm. Please consider this when timing your arrival at school. You may want to beat the rush and arrive at school EARLIER. Outside supervision begins at 8:25am and our doors are always open during inclement weather (e.g. raining or temperatures below -20oC w/windchill). As parents/guardians, we can all contribute in some way to ensure safety and improve traffic flow around the school and surrounding area. Safety is everyone’s responsibility.

Christmas Concerts

Thank you to everyone who joined us for our performances. A special thank you to Mrs. Paxman for leading our students in the preparations for this event. We are also grateful for your Sign of Hope contributions. We raised a total of $1140.00. Thank you very much!

Hour of Code

The Gr. 6 students explored a maker challenge by creating a paper circuit constellation this week. This project incorporated Science, Math, Art, and Language Arts outcomes. The students were charged with understanding and demonstrating the apparent movement of the stars throughout the seasons due to the Earth’s rotation. They were asked to estimate and measure the angles of their constellations. Additionally, they were challenged to incorporate Vincent Van Gogh’s Starry Night into their constellation and describe in a myth (short story) how the stars were placed in the sky. This project helped develop perseverance, collaboration, and problem solving skills. Great job, Gr. 6!

 

Grade Four Trashion Show

 

Students in Grade 4 are in the midst of the Science Unit “Waste and Our World”. The students were asked to create an item of clothing or an accessory using recycled materials that they modelled in the Trashion Showcase! We had everything from dresses, hats, shirts, hand bags and shoes! Thank you to our grade four students for all your hard work and creativity. We look forward to more exciting projects in the new year!

Spreading Some Christmas Joy

Our MWI choir brought joy to the residents of Devonshire Care Centre today, by singing some Christmas carols. Thank you to Mrs. Paxman and the choir group for sharing your love of music and spreading joy to others in our community.

Demonstration of Learning and Mingle & Jingle

Thank you for attending our Demonstration of Learning this Thursday, December 6th. Students were proud to share their learning accomplishments so far this year. We are grateful for the support you provide in order for your children to be successful.

IMG_9322

Thank you to School Council for hosting our annual Mingle & Jingle. It was an excellent opportunity to continue building relationships with our MWI community. We would also like to thank our grade 6 student leaders who volunteered to supervise games in the gym. These students play an important role in modelling leadership to their peers.

Parent Satisfaction Surveys

IMG_9319

We had a tremendous return of ECSD Parent Satisfaction Surveys, with over 370 surveys returned to school. We value your input as it helps us make more informed decisions. Although we did not have a class with 100% participation, we were thrilled with the participation results. Our winning classes with the three highest percentage rate of return include: Mme Sandy (6B)…93%, Ms Rivera (4C)…88%… and Ms Ney (1A)…85%. Congratulations!

Walking Together in God’s Love… Art Exhibition

Our students were proud to share their creations representing ECSD’s theme: Walking Together in God’s Love, during our Demonstration of Learning . Here is an excerpt of our resident artists’ goal for the project:

In today’s world, it is becoming increasingly difficult to express ourselves with the freedom and originality of our individual visions. We believe that creativity and imagination is key to children’s development, allowing them to explore and express themselves in various ways.

When we walk into schools, our objective is to have every student interpret the project in their unique way. Walking in God’s Love can mean many different things to different people, as God’s love is represented all around us every day. In our environment, in our good fortune, in the people who surround us. In our fast paced modern society it is important to take the time to appreciate these things and to be grateful.

Through this project we encouraged your children to problem solve by integrating the shoe into a their images, to have a tactile experience away from computer screens and iPads, to get messy while exploring colour theory and three-dimensional art, to express themselves without fear or concern of how their peers will perceive it, and to do an activity that focuses on the process and leads to incredibly original results.  Art in itself is a gift, an opportunity to express one’s own unique voice without fear of getting it “wrong”.

Hour of Code

hour of code

ECSD’s staff and students, including MWI, will be participating in the Hour of Code event December 3-7, 2018. This is the fifth year that Edmonton Catholic Schools will be participating.  Hour of Code is a global movement that is supported by Code.org with the purpose of reaching tens of millions of students in 180+ countries through a one-hour introduction to computer science and computer programming.

We live in a world surrounded by technology, and we know that whatever fields our students choose to explore as adults, their ability to succeed will increasingly depend on understanding how technology works. This is a great time to introduce our students to computer programming and for them to see how coding is part of the way the world works.  Coding and Computer Science also help to enhance literacy and numeracy skills through computational thinking, collaboration, and problem solving.

MWI staff and students are looking forward to an exciting week ahead!

Our book fair will be held next week, December 3 – 6th, and during our Demonstration of Learning evening on Thursday, December 6th. This year the book fair is held in the library.
