Alberta Ed has broken down the curriculum by Grade Level as a parent resource. 

Just like backing up a car takes practice, so does learning how to count by 2's , 5’s and 10's  backwards.

 The Wilson Ways 
 Wilson Ways
Be Respectful
I demonstrate respect for myself, for others, for learning, and for property.
Be Responsible
I am responsible for my actions and for my learning.  I arrive at school ready to learn.
Be Resilient
I try to solve my own problems before asking for help.  I know that it is okay to make mistakes, and I
learn from the mistakes I make.

We are learning to be resilient and to have Growth Mindset. Please check out the video.  

I can be resilient when I use " THE POWER OF YET" . I can make it happen.

Skating After Christmas-CSA Hockey Helmets mandatoryHockey helmet

Skating is part of the Alberta Physical Education curriculum in the Alternative Environments section of the program.  It is the intention that ALL children at Ecole Barrie Wilson will be involved in skating after Christmas holidays as part of Physical Education.  

Physical Education Safety Guidelines requires that all students MUST wear a CSA approved hockey helmet for all ice skating activities.  Bicycle helmets are not permitted as they are not deemed to be safe.

In addition, children MUST wear mitts or gloves and snow pants while skating.

Helmets and ice skates make wonderful Christmas presents for children as Red Deer has an abundance of skating facilities such as outdoor rinks, Bower Ponds and indoor arenas.  Be sure that the helmet has a sticker that says CSA approved.

Classroom skating begins the first week after the Christmas break, and runs until the end of February/beginning of March weather and ice permitting.  Please check your child’s agenda and/or their teacher’s web page for skating times.

Please be advised that if your child rides the bus, they are required to have their skates in a canvas type bag for safety reasons.  

Also, if you have any skates or helmets that you would like to donate to our school, please drop them off at the school’s main office.  

******If you can help tie and/or untie skates during your child’s skating time****** Your help would be GREATLY appreciated!!  

Thank you and we look forward to our skating time!

Polar Bandit Club

The Polar Bandit Club is for days when the temperature outside is between -20 C and -30 C.  Currently all students go outside when the temperature is warmer than -20 C with or without the windchill.  Students whose parents have signed the Polar Bandit Club permission form and have the appropriate winter gear (see video below) will go outside for recess time when the temperature is between -20 C and -30 C (with or without the windchill) for some much needed movement.  The remainder of the students will go to the gymnasium at this time to get their much needed movement by walking laps.  Remember the McKeage Mantra:  "Outside is the best side!"  We are Canadian!  We are Polar Bandits!

“ How can my mind grow?”

We are learning how we can make our brains stronger with Growth Mindset.

To build strong neural pathways I participate.

To build strong neural pathways I practice.

To build strong neural pathways I persevere.

To build strong neural pathways it takes time and effort.

To build strong neural pathways, I know mistakes are good and part of learning.

To build strong neural pathways, I can ask an expert for help.

As a school we are focused on building growth mindset with our students. What does this mean? Please check out the videos.
