Spring has Sprung for the Wolfpack!

Returning from Spring Break I hope that all of our parents and students had an opportunity to spend time together and to relax, as we prepare for the final few months of the school year. Thank you for taking the time to read about some of the recent events  at Woodhaven Middle School (like our awesome Talent Show and Slam Dunk Contest) and for learning what’s coming soon in our school community.

Report Cards and Parent/Student/Teacher Conferences

As you are aware, term 2 report cards were made available on Friday, March 16th on your child’s Powerschool Account. If you have had any difficulties accessing the report card, please do not hesitate to contact one of our secretaries.

We were very pleased with the turnout at our recent Parent/Student/Teacher Conferences in March. These conferences provide a great opportunity to check in on student progress, discuss learning and answer any questions students and parents may have. We truly appreciate the commitment of our parents in working with us to support our students.

*A special thank you goes out to so many of our MCP families who graciously offered to provide a potluck supper for our teachers during these evenings! Your generosity was truly appreciated!

If you were unable to attend these conferences, you are welcome to contact your child’s teacher(s) directly to make alternate arrangements for a conference. You can access your child’s teacher(s) contact info on our school website.

2018-19 Student Registration

Parkland School Division is implementing changes to the registration process for the upcoming school year. It is imperative that ALL parents have completed the registration/verification process as soon as possible.

Talent Show & Slam Dunk Competition

 

While those are just a few of the events that have happened recently at Woodhaven, read on to learn about some more learning and fun coming soon.

Joint Chapel

I would like to close by thanking Brookwood School for hosting our Maranatha Christian Program students, staff and our myself and Mrs. Kronewitt for our recent Easter Joint Chapel on Wednesday, March 21st.

This gathering provided an opportunity for our program to share time together and celebrate Easter together.

Staff/Student Hockey Game

Our Annual Staff/Student Hockey game will be taking place on Friday, April 13th at approximately 1:30 p.m. at the Stu Barnes arena. We are looking forward to another fun-filled school event for our students.

Human Sexuality Health Day

The second Human Sexuality Health Day will be held on Friday, April 13th during our morning classes. Information on this day, as well as the previous Health Day on the Human Sexuality was sent home earlier this year.

Teachers will again be sending a reminder to all parents on the specific topics being explored on this Health Day for their students. You can learn more about the Human Sexuality portion of the Health Curriculum on the Alberta Education Website. In addition, the Teaching Sexual Health website offers additional information and resources.

Should you have questions about our upcoming Health Day, please do not hesitate to contact your child’s homeroom teacher. Should you choose to exempt your child from this portion of the curriculum, we just ask that you inform your child’s homeroom teacher so that alternate learning opportunities can be made available for your child.

Grade 9 Farewell

During our recent Woodhaven Middle School Council Meeting, we had the opportunity to discuss our fast approaching Grade 9 Farewell. Please take a moment to view the informative… and humorous video below to learn all that you need to know.

If you’ve made it this far in the post… THANK YOU! I look forward to seeing many of you around the school in the weeks to come.

Until next time,

Mr. S. Patras

Principal, Woodhaven Middle School
