Report Card Access

Good morning,

If you have not received an email regarding your students report cards, you should be able to access them through Parent Portal. I have attached a document with instructions on how to access your child’s report card.

Have a wonderful summer,

Grade 6 Farewell from Mrs. Chapman

Congratulations Grade 6 Students!

 

What an amazing ride you have had at PWE! You should be very proud of all you have accomplished no matter how long your time here was.

 

As you move onward and upward, I have some words of advice to share with you.

 

First, always, always look after you. Always strive to be the best you can be and take care of yourself. You have so much ahead of you that will help you become even more of an amazing human being in our world. You need to know that you are number one and must take care of yourself above all else. Be the most balanced person you can be. You will be better equipped to take on the world when you are healthy and happy.

 

Second, take care of the people in the world around you. Keep taking action to make the world a better place despite others who might try to stop you or those who disagree with you. Be a caring and empathetic human being as you grow, not only for your friends, but also for people in your community. A community is only as strong as the people in it and you are a huge part of that.

 

Finally, take care of the environment and the world. You are some of the most environmentally aware human beings I have ever known because this is what you have grown up learning about. Don’t let that go. Make sure that the world will be here long after you have gone. Leave a legacy behind you that people won’t ever forget.

 

I know I didn’t have the opportunity to teach all of you. However, I know most of you because we shared many years in the same school. I’ve heard your teachers talk about how proud they were of you all. I saw you take action like no other group of students. I hear the passion you had in your voices in the halls of our school. As we all move in different directions, always cherish your years at PWE. I know I do. I will miss you and I wish you nothing but the best as you move onto grade 7.

 

To my grade 3 students from a few years ago, I will miss you so much. I will keep the memories of field trips, inquiries and most of all our Awakening Passions project close to my heart.

 

Have an amazing summer and gear yourselves up for the next amazing chapter!

 

“You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream.” ~ C.S. Lewis

 

Love,

Mrs. Chapman =)

Not too sure what to write after this without getting entirely emotional. I do want to say that I am so, SO proud of all of my students this year… They have an incredible ability to understand the world around them and question why things are the way they are. Some of the discussions we had this year absolutely amazed me and so many of them have set themselves up for such a wonderful future.

Thank you all from the bottom of my heart for your support with at-home learning and in the classroom. From my end, it was clear that you all supported your child’s learning and having your support to help your child grow and learn by being on the same team has been such a blessing.

Have a wonderful and safe summer. I wish you, your families, and of course your child the very best in whatever their future may look like.

Take care,Week 12_ June 22-26 (Grade 6)

Created to support the mental health and wellbeing of children from 3 to 14 years of age. MindUP is a strengths-based curriculum designed to lay strong foundations for children to navigate the challenges of the 21st century with resilience, kindness and compassion. Children will learn about mindfulness and how it can calm their brains when worried, emotional regulation, understanding and managing worries and stress, and the importance of kindness and gratitude, all through fun and engaging online activities.  This program is designed for children entering grades 3-5.  $5 registration fee will provide all necessary supplies for participants.  Choose from 3 sessions: Wednesdays July 8 – August 5, 2:00 – 2:45pm; Thursdays July 9 – August 6, 9:30 – 10:15am or Thursdays July 9 – August 16, 2:00 – 2:45pm.  Please contact Allison Blake ablake@rockyview.ab.ca for more information.

Week 10 At-Home Learning Plan (June 8-14)

Good morning Parents & Guardians,

Some exciting news, we have been given the green light to slightly ease up the workload for the last two weeks of June. In a normal school year, especially with a heavy PAT couple of weeks incoming (traditionally), we would be taking breaks such as going outside or having more fun inquiry activities to ease the stress of PATs and of course celebrate the learning journey your child has done here at Prairie Waters Elementary. I look forward to having some fun in these next couple weeks!

Thank you so so much from the bottom of my heart to all you parents and students who have worked so incredibly hard over the course of this at-home learning… This was definitely something that no one predicted would happen and I really appreciate all the feedback and comments to help us get through the rest of the school year.

As always take care, if you have any questions feel free to let me know.

Week 9 At-Home Learning Plan

Good morning Parents & Guardians,

Welcome to June! Your last and final month of school and grade 6 for your wonderful child at Prairie Waters Elementary. I have had many questions regarding the specifics of this month so I am hoping to answer some of the questions.

We will be having a Grade 6 graduation, this will be happening virtually towards the end of the month so stay tuned for your invite. We are hoping to put on a more official graduation when everything opens up, this would most likely happen next year when students are in grade 7.

As far as the transition to Grade 7, I do not know who your Grade 7 teacher will be or what class they will be in. Both CLMS and St. Gabriel need to know who is going to be in their school before they can come out with an official class list, so you are going to have to be patient with that. You most likely will not know this information until mid/late summer or even September.

I wish we could have had a in-school transition or field trip to CLMS, however due to the events that could not happen. I know CLMS is working hard and will contact many of you directly regarding information on Grade 7. So please be patient for now, if you do have a question regarding your students Grade 7 experience, please contact the middle school – I unfortunately just do not have the information.

Report cards will go home at the end of the month per usual.

If I am forgetting anything, feel free to let me know. As always, take care and I wish you all the best.

Week 8 At-Home Learning Plan (May 25-29)

Welcome to Week 8. We hope you are well and everyone is healthy and finding a balance in their week. Due to low submissions from the previous weeks we are using this week to ensure students have time assigned to them to work on any tasks that may still need to be completed. We are trying to be mindful of workload and finding balance in our plans. This time has been placed into our plan this week. If you are caught up, there are some suggestions of alternate and optional activities you can do if you choose.

Please make sure students are checking their emails regularly (preferably daily) to make sure they are not missing any direct instruction, feedback or notes that we are sending to them. 

This week, we will continue to host our weekly Zooms at 11am on Tuesday. Any seperate Zoom meetings can be arranged through email as needed.

Please see your teacher’s video on their Google Classroom for a recap of this week’s plan.

Please make sure you are checking PowerSchool regularly for feedback on assignments. There will be no mark, but a comment or a completion mark under many of our at-home learning tasks.

Week 7 at-home learning (May 19 – 22)

Good morning Parents & Guardians,
Welcome to Week 7. Hopefully you all had a great long weekend and were able to enjoy some nice weather over May long. If anything the nice weather was a good reminder to me that sunscreen does indeed exist. May my red shoulders heal soon 🙂. 
I think the main message the Grade 6 team has had this last week is that it’s okay to not be able to get to everything posted each week. However, if you are unable to complete the assignments posted please let us know. We completely understand the situation(s) just let us know.
Anyways, we tried to add some more options this week, especially being a PYP and IB school, student choice is so important in our learning that we are trying to implement more of that into our learning for the upcoming weeks.
Take care everyone, if you have any comments questions or concerns feel free to let me know.

Week 6 At-Home Learning Plan (May. 11 – May. 15)

Hello and welcome to Week 6,

This week we are moving on from angles and condensing our measurement unit. We will be looking at perimeter, area and volume.

Of course we are finishing off our Hatchet projects and continuing to read the novel.

Despite our English Part: A PAT in the past, we are still practicing how to write a newspaper article or create a news report.

As always, take care of each other. If you have any questions, comments or concerns please feel free to contact me and I would be happy to help in anyway I can.

 

Enjoy the sunshine….Or apparently snow!

– Mr. Cox
