Ms. Copithorne

Welcome to Grade One! My name is Marlene Copithorne and it is my pleasure to welcome your child to my classroom for a wonderful year of learning.  I am so excited to be teaching grade one this year at Heloise Lorimer School.

If you would like to contact me please feel free to email me at or call the school at 403-945-4135. Throughout the year I will be communicating class information via agenda messages, email and phone. Please check your child's agenda every evening to stay up to date on what is happening in our class.

Please also refer to the school calendar frequently for important dates

Below you will find links to Alberta Education Curriculum as well as PowerSchool.

PowerSchool is the location of your child's assessment data and should be used to view assignments following report cards.


Parent Tips

A family atmosphere prevails at our school with the education of your child being a shared responsibility.  We encourage your interest in what your child does each day and welcome your involvement in the classroom, school council and at home.

  1. Please help your child to practice their home reading on a regular basis.
  2. Please help your child to practice their counting and number recognition.
  3. Please check your child's agenda daily.
  4. Sight words are a necessary part of literacy. Help your child become a better reader by practicing their sight words and encourage them to use them when writing sentences. New words are introduced frequently.
  5. Check out the Learn Alberta website for learning activities to do at home.
