We are pleased to announce that this year’s race raised over $24,000 – a new record! The students put a lot of work into fundraising and we love to recognize them for their efforts.

Ninja Dash Prizes Awarded
The 2019 Ninja Dash raised over $24,000!
The students did a fantastic job fundraising this year. This year’s goal was to raise funds to transform part of our library into a Makerspace/Learning Commons. Staff and students have participated in “Community Consultations” to provide their input in identifying what they would like to see and do in this new space. They are very excited for future learning opportunities!
Without the support of School Council and parent volunteers, this opportunity would not be possible. Thank you to our parent volunteers who helped set up, manage and clean up the course. It was a fantastic day of fun and community building.
Well done, Ninja Wolves. Bravo Loups d’orés!
Grade 3 Recorder Concert
On Wednesday, June 12, our grades 3A, 2/3B, 3C and 3D students performed a recorder concert for parents, grandparents and invited guests. Since January, the students have been learning how to play the recorder. We are proud of our students for continuing to share their musical gifts and talents, and they should be proud of their hard work. Thank you to everyone who came to support them! Special thanks to Mrs. Paxman, for her leadership in developing our music program.
Terwillegar Community League Donation
Thank you to Terwillegar Community League for their donation to purchase resources for our school. With this donation, all homeroom teachers received Physical Activity Recipe Cards from Ever Active Schools. These recipe cards have lessons in each of the six dimensions of physical education (gymnastics, dance, individual activities, alternative environment games and a daily physical activity). We look forward to continuing to promote healthy and active living to our students.
MWI Mini World Cup
The Monsignor William Irwin Mini World Cup soccer tournament will take place in the afternoon of Wednesday the 26th of June, 2019.
Each class will have a country and they can dress in team colours. Homeroom teachers will be sharing which country their class is representing at a later time, so students can dress in team or country colours.
We will require a total of 8 referees as we plan to have 4 fields with four games going on at the same time. Games will be 10-15 minutes each and each class will have 3-5 games. Parents interested in volunteering as referees or interested in helping with this event, please contact Mr. Leskow at email@example.com . We thank you for your support!
Good luck to Grade 6
Grade 6 students will continue writing more Provincial Achievement Tests next week. We wish them luck as they prepare for these tests.
Provincial Achievement Tests (PATs) are administered to students in grades 6 have three main purposes:
- to determine if students are learning what they are expected to learn;
- to report to Albertans how well students have achieved provincial standards at given points in their schooling;
- to assist schools, authorities, and the province in monitoring and improving student learning.
