End of Semester One Approaches

As we approach the end of semester one students need to be aware of their marks and what assignments may be missing. Please contact your child’s teacher(s) if you have any questions about their standing in class. You are also able to follow their progress through PowerSchool, please contact the school if you need support getting set up on that.


Cold Weather Procedure

At break times and before school, all students from Kindergarten to grade 6 will go outside and play.  Your child should always come to school with proper cold weather attire, regardless of the season.  When the temperature with wind-chill factor falls between -27 and -29 degrees Celsius, children will be expected to spend a shorter time outside.  When the wind chill factor is -30 degrees Celsius or colder, students will not be required to go outside, however they should always have sufficient outdoor clothing in the event of an emergency. For consistency, we will use information from Environment Canada.

Special Visitor

From left to right: Lori Jeschke (Director of Education PSSD), Jesse Reis (VP Waldheim School), Bruce Mellesmoen (Principal, Waldheim School), Ulla Klefbom (Principal, Uppsala, Sweden)

On Monday, Nov. 4th, Waldheim School welcomed Swedish Principal, Ulla Klefbom. Ulla spent the full day at our school, visiting classrooms, talking with teachers and students, and partaking in our staff learning meeting. Ulla is the principal of a new school opening up in Uppsala, Sweden and has been following the work we are doing at Waldheim School on Twitter and through our website. The timing was perfect as she was in Canada visiting family members who live in Saskatchewan.

Ulla was struck by the way Waldheim School felt. She could tell our adults and students had a very strong learning relationship, and was very curious about how our classrooms look and sound. It was a wonderful visit and we’ve committed staying in contact with one another, supporting the work being done in each school.


Subway Lunch Information

For years, Waldheim School has had regularly scheduled Subway Lunch days, where students would order their favorite sandwich, complete with a drink and a treat. Something new is happening this year! We will continue with the Subway Lunches, but the ordering system has changed. Now, all of our ordering with go through healthyhunger.ca

We hope these changes will make ordering and paying for your children’s special lunches much more convenient for everyone. Just a reminder that a portion of the profits from our Subway Lunches goes towards the renewal of our school sports teams jerseys.


What Are We Up To?

This year, our staff is continuing to work on developing a deeper understanding of every learner they work with. As a staff, we have committed to an inquiry process where we will go beyond assumptions. We will ask the questions:

  • What is going on for our learners?
  • How do we know?
  • Why does it matter?

Last week, at our staff learning meeting, teachers where asked to have a side-by-side conversation with three students, asking them the following four questions:

  1. Can you name two people in this setting who believe you will be a success in life?
  2. What are you learning and why is it important?
  3. How is it going with your learning?
  4. What are your next steps?

The results of these conversations will be discussed at our next staff learning meeting. We are doing this because we believe it is important for us, as adults, to constantly evaluate our impact on student learning.

If you have any questions about what we are learning as a staff, or how you can become involved in the process, please feel free to come by the school and speak with us.
