Kinsmen Christmas hampers


Our school will be collecting donations once again and will be sponsoring families through the Kinsmen Club of Stony Plain Christmas Hamper program. For many years The Kinsmen Hamper Program has helped those that are less fortunate in Stony Plain and Parkland County. Last year over 500 families, that’s over 1700 residents, were supplied with food, toys and gift cards for much needed necessities. Each grade level in the school has been assigned a family (see below for details on the families). It is our hope that we will be able to make Christmas a happier time for these families through our community’s generosity. Please click THIS LINK to see a list of suggested items from the Kinsmen Club of Stony Plain. Items donated should NOT be wrapped and should be in to the school before Friday, December 8th

Welcome Back!


Welcome to Grade One.  I am looking forward to working with you and your child to make this a successful and rewarding year.  The following will hopefully address some of the questions that you may have regarding the classroom and the grade one program. The following are bits of information about grade one and the routines that are in place.  THERE WILL BE A GREAT DEAL OF INFORMATION COMING HOME THIS MONTH, SO PLEASE CHECK YOUR CHILD’S BACKPACK EACH NIGHT. In the future I will ask for parent volunteers for special days/events in the classroom and/or for fieldtrips.  Everyone volunteering in the school will need to fill out a volunteer registration form and criminal record check.  They can be obtained in the office. Child information sheet– I am the only person to read it, please return as soon as possible to me to help me get to know your child better.  Please let me know of any allergies or medical conditions as soon as possible. Please sign and return the FOIP permission and technology permission pages, so your child will receive a log on and password access to use on our computers/ipads in the school. Grade One’s do not have lockers therefore you do not need to sign the locker agreement side. (if form is not included today will be sent in future)   Snack – The students are given the opportunity for a snack time. Please send “finger friendly foods” i.e. Granola bars, fruit, yogurt tubes, things in baggies, messy or foods needing spoons will be saved for lunchtime. Lunch– We eat our lunch in our classroom after lunch recess.  The students are given 20-25 minutes to eat their lunches. SHARING FOODS WITH FRIENDS IS DISCOURAGED BECAUSE OF POSSIBLE ALLERGIES OR FOOD REACTIONS. (with the exception of birthdays, parties and celebration days)    This year we are using a rotating day 1-5 schedule so library, music, and gym will not necessarily be on the same day each week. Library will be on day 2 in the afternoon. I will send a reminder in the student’s agendas each week.  School supplies- I store all extra supplies for each child in a bag labelled with his/her name except what they are currently using so they are not wasted and are readily available when needed.  Any unused supplies will go home with your child at the end of the year. We will be painting in the future, if you have an old shirt your child could use as a paint shirt over his/her clothing please send with his/her name on. It will be kept here for painting through the year and returned at the end of grade one. Agenda scribbler– We will be using lined scribblers for an Agenda that will go home each day and must be returned to school each morning.  This book is the mainstay of our communication system. If you are sending payment or some else important to me please put it in an envelope. Please with what it is for and your child’s name on the envelope. We will be writing each day in our agendas to notify you of special events, activities, and later in the year we will be printing our spelling words in them also. I check and initial the agenda scribbler each day.  I ask the agenda scribbler be kept in Ziploc bag for protection against leaking water bottles, wet mitts, and other accidents. It would be appreciated if any money/payments being sent to school is put in a Ziploc bag or envelope.  Please clearly label with your child’s name, reason for the money, and the amount enclosed because the envelopes are set to/collected by the office. Other communication- open communication between home and school is important to me.  During the school year you may be hearing from me through newsletters, notes in the agendas, class blog, an email or phone call. If you have any questions I encourage you to contact me at school (963-3535), write a note, or an email.

I look forward to meeting you and working with your child this year.  Hopefully together, we can provide a positive learning and growing experience for the children. September 13th- Mustang Kickoff and Welcome back from 5:00 pm to 7:00.  Come mingle and meet the teachers and staff. (This note will be coming home in their agenda on the first day also.)

Thank you,

Ms. Wendy Douglas
