Welcome to March!

Our school year continues to move along quickly!  We hope everyone enjoyed their February break and enjoyed time with their families.  Connecting with others is so important for our health and well-being.

Windsong continues to work at meeting the goals in our School Education Plan around Advancing students’ numeracy and literacy skills, Building future-ready students and Creating inclusive, engaging, healthy learning opportunities for all students.

Did you know that we have been fortunate to be able to welcome back Mrs. Beaudry to help support our work in building numeracy and literacy skills by giving small group instruction to grades 1-5 over the course of a couple of months?  We are so appreciative of her expertise and passion for teaching students!   

During the break, teachers attended our annual Teachers' Convention in Calgary, where they got to connect with other professionals and engage in professional learning across a number of different topics of interest.

Now with March upon us, we are moving toward the end of our second term, which means we have our next round of 3-way conferences coming up.  Information for booking time with your child's teacher has already been sent out, so hopefully you have been able to book a time.  We encourage you to talk with your child about their learning every day which will help when it comes time for your conference.   Teachers will be preparing as well to use the time efficiently with you and your child.  We look forward to welcoming you all again for these conferences.

Supporting the development of new teachers is an important part of our profession, and Windsong is so pleased to welcome another group of student teachers to our building.  They work closely with their partner teachers to develop their skills as teachers in an authentic setting.  We wish them all the best in their time at our school.

March is also the time schools start to plan for the next school year.  Already we have seen increased enrollment at Windsong as Airdrie continues to grow and our staff are doing an exceptional job at welcoming new students and families.  If you are new to our community in the past couple of months, welcome!  
We hope you are enjoying our school and community!

Did you know...

...that March is For the Love of Reading month at Windsong?  We are planning a variety of activities throughout the month to support and celebrate reading, a critical lifelong skill!  You will find more information in this newsletter from Mrs. Moore.

Let's have a great March together!
