In January we will have in-line skating workshops for our Grade 1 to 6 students. Alien In-Line will be at our school Jan. 12 – 16, Jan. 19 and 23. The Baturyn Parent Association is sponsoring this activity.
Ms. Robinson has been working with all of the students to prepare them for the annual Christmas Concert. The concert will be held on Wednesday, December 17 with two shows. The first will be at 5:45pm and the second will be at 7:15pm. All students, Grade 1-6, will perform in both shows and parents will receive tickets for one of the shows. The morning Kindergarten students will perform in the first show and the afternoon Kindergarten students will perform in the second show. Seating capacity is limited so you will need tickets at the doors; a red letter was sent home with students for acquiring free tickets. If you need more information about tickets please contact the main office.
Turkey Drive for the Edmonton Food Bank
The Citizenship Leaders in Room 3 & 13 are organizing a food drive and donation collection to help provide food for the hungry in Edmonton. Our school goal is to raise $250 in order to buy 10 turkeys for families in need during the holiday season. Our other goal is to fill two boxes with non-perishable food donations. If you would like to support this community project please send donations of food or money during the week of December 8-12. Thank you for helping us help others.
Greeting Card Delivery
Each December, Baturyn School undertakes a school-wide service project where our students show leadership in the community be creating and distributing seasonal greeting cards to homes in the neighborhood. Students make cards in their art classes, and each class goes on a walking field trip to distribute the hand-made cards. Look in your mailbox for a special card to spread joy during the holiday season.
Our Baturyn student Citizenship Leaders ran a campaign during the last week of October called Socktober. The purpose of this campaign was to synergize as a school community and collect new and gently used socks to donate to Edmontonians in need. The goal of collecting 500 pairs of socks was successfully met during the week. Because of this effort many homeless people in Edmonton will have warm feet this winter.

On behalf of the staff at Baturyn School, it is my pleasure to extend a warm welcome to all students and their families.
Baturyn School is a positive, nurturing learning community focused on the success of all students. Our staff is committed to providing rich learning experiences and the best possible programming to enable all students to learn, lead, grow and achieve. High standards for academic success and positive student behavior are emphasized at Baturyn.
The education of our children is a partnership between home, school and the child. For students to be successful in their learning, all members of the partnership must work together. Parents are an integral part of the learning team and a key element in the success of children in school. We welcome parent involvement. With parental participation and support, the very best learning experiences are created for children.
Schools, like homes, rely on communication to establish and maintain relationships. Our school handbook provides information about our school programs, activities, policies, and procedures. A school newsletter is available the last Friday of each month. We also encourage families to utilize Schoolzone, a secure on-line tool desined to provide Baturyn parents and students with information about school events, activities and much more.
We look forward to working with you to provide the very best learning experiences for all our students.
