Welcome to Donalda School
October 2014 Principal's Message

The start of the school year always has so much enthusiasm and excitement. For me, this year has been extra special. I am in a new school, in a new community, teaching a new age group, with new responsibilities.

As I have observed Donalda School, I noticed that there many great things happening in the classrooms, halls and playground. I want the school newsletter to be a place where students, parents and the community can see and read about the great things happening at the school.  Each month, I will collect pictures and stories from the teachers and we will send a print (black and white) copy home with students and I will post a coloured version on the website for families to download.  Any parents who requested that their children not have their picture displayed on website, we will make every effort to protect their privacy.

October is shaping up to be another great month.  Student Learning Assessments will be completed in October for the Grade 3’s.  These assessments will provide parents, students and teachers vital information about each individual students literacy and numeracy skills.  CARA volleyball and cross country starts in October and the athletes from Donalda are exited to compete against friends in nearby schools.  On October 10, all the students in Donalda will be travelling to the Stettler Elementary School to see a concert by a band called Speed Control. This band will showcase Canadian music from the past 50 years. These are just a few of the many things happening at the school this month.  Please see the October calendar for more information.

On October 9, at 7 pm at the Board Office, Clearview Public Schools is hosting a School Council training session. During the first part of the meeting, the Board will be sharing its Principles and Priorities for the coming three years. After this presentation, a facilitator from the Alberta School Councils' Assoc. will provide training and resources for School Council members. If you are interested please contact Alison Norman or myself.

If you have not paid your school fees, please do so as soon as possible. They are $60.00 per student and cheques can be made out to Donalda School.

If you have questions, comments or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me.  Mark Siemens
