Principal’s Message

Dear Parents,

Remembrance Day Assembly

This year our Remembrance Day Assembly will be taking place on Friday, November 10th starting at 10:45 am. Parents are welcome to join us. This year we welcome our guests of honour, Warrant Officer Mike Cacciavillani, Master Bombardier Sarah Breker and Acting Sub-Lieutenant Alex Wood.

Progress Reports

Progress reports are being sent home next Tuesday, November 14th with all kindergarten to grade six students. These reports are intended to provide you with an early indication of how your child is progressing at this point in the school year. The progress report does not contain grades. A large focus for the Progress Report is the Learning Skills: Responsibility, Organization, Collaboration, Initiative, Independent Work and Self-Regulation. At Allenby, we feel that the development of these learning skills is an integral part of a student’s learning. The subject comments describe the strengths and next steps for learning relative to the student’s progress towards the achievement of the curriculum expectations.

A Parent-Teacher interview evening will take place on the evening of November 16th and many interviews will take place the following day on the PA Day. I always encourage regular, ongoing, home and school communication. I hope that parents have confirmed an interview with their child’s teacher. I am confident that by working together our school will continue to be rich learning environment for all our students.
