Principal's Message

Dear Sabre families,

We hope everyone had a positive and uplifting September as we welcome the month of October and all that it brings. A bit of reflection on our last couple of weeks of September before we highlight the start of the new month.

What a special day we had as a school community as we embraced the Terry Fox Walk/Run on September 22, 2023.

When we look at student engagement, our goal is to see it in the classroom and out. As we know, our kiddos need to feel attachment and belonging, and that is one of our foundational goals at SAL. Our students, like us adults, need a sense of meaning and purpose as well as a feeling of empowerment, through their voice and involvement.

We were collectively involved and together with the Terry Fox Walk/Run.

Last Friday was our Orange Shirt Day which is a day of remembrance and an act of reconciliation. It is an opportunity for First Nations, Métis and Inuit; local governments; schools; and communities to come together in the spirit of reconciliation and hope for generations of children to come.

Thank you to Mrs. Willman, our First Nations, Métis, Inuit lead at SAL, and our Aboriginal Studies class for their planning.

Student Parent Teacher Interviews - our dates are scheduled for November 1, and November 2, 2023 from 4:30 - 7:00 p.m.

Stay tuned for how you can book a time slot for our upcoming P/S/T in just over a couple of weeks.

Please note, Administration and Guidance are available to meet in person with parents throughout the year to strategize and customize programming.

Hence, and as an example, if you would like to meet with me at any point, please do not hesitate to contact me directly and we can work on a time that works best for you.
