Dear Grenfell Community,
Last week was a busy one.
Many of you were here for the Windermere Community Schools Programs
registration, a program we are very grateful to be able to host at our
school. After that many of you made the return
trip to Grenfell on Wednesday and Thursday to meet with your child’s teacher to
learn about progress, set some goals, and figure out how we can support each
other in raising your children.
Thank you also to the many parents and caregivers who came
and talked to me in the office. I really
enjoy the communication with parents and caregivers as I believe that children
thrive when all adults around them work together.
Here is our week ahead:
All Day Thanksgiving
Holiday (NO SCHOOL)
All Day Student
8 am Soccer
3 – 5 pm X-Country
Meet at Trout Lake
October 19 X-Country District Final at Trout Lake
October 20 Pro-D Day (No School)
Now to a link. The
staff at Grenfell have decided to focus on the virtue of Respect for the next
two months. This means that stories will
be told, discussions will be held and student’s caring actions will be highlighted
as the school promotes Respect. These
actions can be small things such as picking up someone’s dropped pencil, saying
“thank you”, letting a peer go first in line, letting others know they are
important. Here is a short video (which we
watched in intermediate assembly) from the CBC.
It shows how one student used a small act of respect -- holding a door open
for others -- to make school a better place for others as well as for himself. If you have the time, have a look, and maybe
even discuss it with your child. Enjoy.
Have a wonderful weekend,
