Welcome to Our Lady of Wisdom School Website
Our Lady of Wisdom School serves all of the K-6 Catholic students in Chestermere. Our school motto is “Accept, Achieve, Aspire”.
We are part of the Calgary Catholic School District. Our district mission is Living and Learning in our Catholic Faith.
This is Hundreds and Thousands Week in Chestermere. This is a week to focus on creative, fun, community impacting acts of kindness. To do her part in this challenge, one of our parents arrived to surprise our kindergarten class today with bubble wands for all of the children. With the help of buddies and friends in their neighbour class, 3 Fehr, bubble wands were distributed to all of the students in Mrs. Schatz’s and Ms. Sarin’s afternoon kindergarten classes. The children were thrilled! It is not too late join in, too – the challenge goes until May 23. For more information click here
To help us understand the areas where we are serving you well and areas we may consider for growth, please take a few minutes to complete our District’s Parents Satisfaction Survey, using the link below.
The survey only takes a few minutes to complete and the feedback is very valuable for us.
Thank you for taking the time to complete the survey. This survey link is open until the end of the month.
With May being Mental Health Month, our own Healthy Heroes are promoting the importance of caring for our mental health, along with strategies to assist us in reaching this goal.
The focus for the first week is on meditation. Each morning at the end of announcements two of our very own Healthy Heroes talk to the school about the importance and benefits of meditation. So far we have heard how meditation helps us reduce anxiety and improve positivity and focus. We finish off with the entire school participating in a two minute guided meditation.
We are using the app Calm.com to help us with our meditation. While there are in app purchases, the basic app, describing the 7 Steps of Calm as well as including guided meditations about being calm, is free. Check it out – Keep Calm and Meditate On!
We will be holding two Open Houses for new students on Wednesday, June 3rd at 6:00pm and Friday June 12th at 9:15am. New students and their parents are welcome to drop by for a tour and information session.
All Government of Alberta Buildings and establishments, including schools, will fly their flags at half mast on Tuesday, April 28th from sunrise to sunset to mark the National Day of Mourning commemorating workers whose lives have been lost or injured in the workplace.
Please join us for our next Family Movie Night, hosted by School Council, on Thursday, April 16. Doors open at 6:00 and the movie begins at 6:30. There is no cost for this event for families of OLW; popcorn, water, and juice will be available for sale. We will be watching Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day.
As this is a family event students need to attend, and remain with, their family for this event. Children who are in attendance without their families will not be admitted to the activity.
There is a limited number of chairs available for those who are not able to sit on the floor. Otherwise, please bring a blanket and/or some pillows for sitting on the floor. No outdoor seats (such as camping or beach chairs) will be admitted as they can damage the floor or block the view of others enjoying the movie.
We look forward to seeing you there!
