Treaty 6 Acknowledgment

Meet the Teacher

Mrs. Joanne Calder

Mrs. Joanne Calder

My name is Joanne Calder.  Lamont is extremely dear to my heart as it is where I grew up and went to school myself.  My entire teaching career has been at Lamont Elementary School.  I taught grade five my first year teaching in the 2007-2008 school year and have taught grade three ever since. This year I am excited to be able to work with all grades and take on the new journey of teaching about the First Nations, Metis and Inuit cultures. 

In the summer of 2008 I married my husband Scott Calder, who is an Emergency Services Advisor at Sherritt and is also a captain on the volunteer Fire Department in Lamont. 

In the 2011-2012 school year, I was away on maternity leave with my daughter Cheyanne, who was born on November 7, 2011 and my second maternity leave was with my son Jaxon for the 2014-2015 School Year.  He was born on July 25, 2014.  

When I am not teaching or planning awesome things for us to do at school… I enjoy camping, shopping, playing ball, curling, dining-out and spending time with family and friends. 

SOME OF MY FAVORITE Things:

Disney

Lululemon           

Big Brother

Starbucks     

Restaurant: Joey Tomatoes

Color: Blue    

Sports: curling, baseball, hockey (Oiler's Fan)

WEE READ PROGRAM

We are looking for volunteers that would be able to support the Wee Read Program here at Lamont Elementary School. Please see below for a brief description of the Wee Read Program. 

I Read, You Read: Wee Read Volunteers Needed!

The 8 week program is designed to get children in kindergarten and Grade 1 excited about reading while also strengthening their literacy foundations and school success. Once a week, volunteers will visit a group of students for 30 minutes throughout the eight-week program. They’ll share their love of books by reading aloud, playing vocabulary games and offering stories about what inspired them when they were children. Note: while this program is delivered to students in kindergarten and Grade 1, volunteers aren’t limited to Grade 1 and kindergarten parents. We welcome any parent or community member who would be willing to give their time!

Thank you for your support!
