First Days Fly By
The first week of classes seemed to fly by as students, teachers and families settled back into the excitement and routine of another school year!
There will be a lot happening in, around, and outside our school walls this month. Grade 1-3 students will head off to swimming lessons at Acadia Pool, Grade Four classes will each spend a week at City Hall School, and a tennis instructor will join our Phys. Ed classes to share her expertise with all of the students. A full list of events can be found in our Sept. Calendar on the school website.
We are very excited to welcome Ms. Sarah Grodecki as our very own Douglasdale Studio Artist for the 2015-16 school year. Miss. Sarah is a 2015 graduate of Alberta College of Art and Design. Her practice encompasses a multidisciplinary approach including, but not limited to, photorealist oil painting, interactive performance art and photographic documentation. She will spend 15 hours a week at Douglasdale School supporting students and teachers in their classroom artistic endeavors as well as working on her own art pieces in her studio in the Learning Commons. While Miss. Sarah paints, students will have the unique opportunity to sit, observe, journal, ask questions or work alongside her on some of their own creations. Please join us in welcoming Miss. Sarah to the Douglasdale School Community and stop by the LC to say hello if you see her in there working.
We look forward to meeting all of our DDS parents at "Meet the Teacher" on either Sept 10th or 11th. Please log into conference manager on the website to book your time.
