Father Bill Day and Year-end Celebration- June 23

To recognize Monsignor William Irwin’s (Father Bill) birthday and the school’s 10-year anniversary, we have an action-packed day planned for students on Wednesday, June 23rd. We have organized outdoor games for each homeroom class, guided wolf drawing lessons, Golden Wolf t-shirt and pen raffles throughout the day, writing prompts on ‘What does it means to be a Golden Wolf?’ and much more! Students are also invited to dress in MWI spirit wear or in our school colors (blue, grey and gold).

Mural Mosaic blessing

We would like to invite our families to participate in this special occasion too. Families will be invited to join in a live YouTube event from 1 – 1:30 pm for our mural mosaic blessing by Father Curtis. A link to the event will be shared by email.

Name our Golden Wolf contest

To recognize our 10 year anniversary, we are inviting families to participate in MWI’s “Name our Golden Wolf” contest. Families can submit up to two names.

Book donations for Catholic Social services

As part of honouring our school namesake on Father Bill Day, we are collecting slightly used books for distribution through Catholic Social Services. Please consider looking through your bookshelves for books in good condition that your family can donate. All the books we receive will be given to single mothers and children living in Katherine Drexell Place or families recently immigrated to Canada. Classes will be collecting book donations starting Monday, June 21st until Father Bill Day on Wednesday, June 23rd. Thank you for your attention and support of our social justice project in honour of Monsignor William Irwin and his instrumental work in supporting the less fortunate in our community.

MWI Farewell Parade- June 25th

Class Configurations for 2021- 2022

Below, you will find the homeroom class configurations for next year.  We thank our staff for their efforts and flexibility as we worked together to establish a plan that best meets the needs of our students and with the resources at our disposal.  It is important to note that there is always a possibility that changes may need to be made in September when we determine our final enrolment numbers.

As in past years, parents will receive an email prior to the first day of school (Friday, August 27th) that will advise them of their child’s placement for the school year.  The first day of school is Wednesday, September 1st. Kindergarten students will receive details for their staggered entry dates and times at a later time. Letters will be sent home next week with these details.

We are excited to share the MWI staff members for 2021-2022:

Dear Div II Families,
After a few delays, this year’s MWI Spring Concert is ready for viewing! Due to the nature of musical performances during COVID times, the performances from each of the DIV II classes were recorded and put together into a virtual mini concert. These performance videos will be posted to each grade’s Google Classroom for Music on the evening of Monday June 14, 2021 for students and their families to access. Great work to everyone, have a great summer!
In Christ,

Mr. Meagher

Golden Wolves are #KIND

Our Golden Wolves focus this month was on kindness, the importance of good mental health and being kind to your mind. Enjoying life can come from simple things such as focusing on the positive aspects of life and accepting that some things can’t be changed. Teachers nominated students who demonstrated a flexible and positive mind over the month of May. One student from each homeroom was presented with a prize this week.

Each student will receive a Panago gift certificate for a free pizza to enjoy. Thank you to School Council for supporting this event as well as Roman Przybyla, from Terwillegar Panago for generously donating the prizes.

May Golden Wolves Winners:

Our June focus is on respect. As we celebrate National Indigenous History Month to honour the history, heritage, and diversity of Indigenous peoples in Canada, teachers will be observing and identifying students who demonstrate respect and appreciation for others; celebrating our uniqueness and diversity. Let’s show everyone that Golden Wolves are respectful in words and actions. Les loups dorés peuvent démontrer comment ils sont respectueux avec des mots et des actions.

Wellness Focus for June

This month we are going to learn all about being a “Sleep Star”. Sleep is a very important part of keeping our minds and bodies healthy.
Did you know that kids aged 5-12 need 10-11 hours of sleep every night? Children’s brain and body are like a cell phone. They need to recharge while you are sleeping so that you have energy all day long.

Chief Superintendent June Message

“…Well done good and faithful servant…”  ~Matthew 25:21~

Our theme for this year has been God Calls Us Each By Name, and that has been the perfect description for what our students, families, and staff have experienced.  In managing the turmoil, and often chaos, that has arisen out of the pandemic, we have each been called to be many things in ways far beyond what we are used to:  patient, diligent, caring, calm, resilient, flexible, understanding, forgiving, creative, courageous, and so much more.  As our year comes to a close, the passage from Matthew seems a fitting punctuation mark.  Thank you to every member of the Edmonton Catholic Schools family who has risen to the challenges before us and answered God’s call as a good and faithful servant!

We were so glad to see all our in-person learning students return to class on May 25.  We are a people of hope, and we look forward to having more stability and structure in the 2021-22 school year.  In the Spring, we asked you to declare your intention for in-person or online learning for the 2021-22 school year.  You will receive a notification from your school in mid-June asking you to inform the Division should you decide to change your choice.  You will have until August 2 if you are in a year-round calendar school and August 16 if you are in a regular calendar school to indicate a final change of choice.  There will be no changes after August 16 as we will have to staff based on the number of students in each school. 

Edmonton Catholic Schools is excited to launch our new Faith Alive website and welcome our ECSD students and families to explore the beauty of our faith.  We created this digital space after the Division’s Student Voice members identified this project as an area of opportunity for young people and families to find quality Catholic content online.  Faith Alive will provide students and families with a wealth of information and resources to help you become active in prayer, worship, and study.  Visit ecsd.net/faithalive to start your journey. 

The May 26 Public Meeting of the Board also saw our Board of Trustees passing our Division Budget for the upcoming year.  You can learn more about the budget by visiting www.ecsd.net or clicking here.  Edmonton Catholic Schools has worked diligently to increase funding to the classroom through improvements in the delivery of administration, operations and maintenance.  A total of 78.8% of this budget will support student instruction, while system administration expenses are 2.7%, which is lower than the 3.15% cap established by Alberta Education.

In May, our eyes were turned to mothers and a celebration of Mary.  In June, let us turn our eyes to fathers and father figures and to St. Joseph, Jesus’ earthly father.  In his Apostolic Letter, Patris Corde, our
Holy Father Pope Francis declared this to be the year of St. Joseph.  He shares the following:  “Fathers are not born but made. A man does not become a father simply by bringing a child into the world, but by taking up the responsibility to care for that child. Whenever a man accepts responsibility for the life of another, in some way he becomes a father to that person.”  Happy Father’s Day to all those who have accepted the sacred responsibility of nurturing our children!

Have a wonderful June and a restful summer.  We look forward to a new beginning in the 2021-22 school year!

Sincerely,

Robert Martin

Chief Superintendent
