Kitscoty Elementary School

Newsletter October 2021

Note from the Office

One month in and we are happy to see our students settling into their new routines. I am excited to see all the the projects and activities in the classroom! Congratulations to our KES students in the Run Club, they placed very well at the Riverdale Run.

As we begin to see the weather turn colder, please remember to send your child with some layers. Students are outside for 3 recesses during the day and it is important that they are dressed appropriately and are comfortable.

We will be dressing up for Halloween at the end of the month, a reminder that at KES we celebrate the gentler side of Halloween and ask that students avoid costumes with blood and/or weapons.

Thank you to parents for all your support this year!

VIBE Coach at KES

Welcome back, I hope everyone has had an enjoyable summer filled with connection and new

memories. I am Kirsten Evans, the VIBE Coach at KES. VIBE is a Mental Health Capacity Building program funded by AHS. We focus on mental health prevention within the school typically through programming within the classrooms, community activities, etc. Over the year, your child may come home with notes, crafts, activities, or stories from the VIBE program. I encourage you to ask your child what they have been learning with VIBE throughout the year.

Piano Lessons

It is that time of year again! Piano lessons are once again being offered at KES during school time. Students need a piano or full-sized keyboard (88 keys) at home for practice purposes. If interested, please phone or text Shawn at 780 871 1216 Qualifications: B.A., B. Ed., A.R.C.T., L.T.C.L.
