Welcome to the 2016-2017 School Year!

Dear Students, Parents, and Guardians,

Hello, and welcome to a brand new school year - my name is Ms. Dana Schwab, and I will be teaching your child English Language Arts 9, Health 9, or Drama 9, 10, 20, or 30. This is my fifth year at Cold Lake High School, and I am enjoying my time in this learning community immensely. It is my hope to make your child feel like a member of this extended family as well.

In the classroom, my first priority is preparing students for the Provincial Achievement Tests that they will write in January and at the end of Grade Nine. In order for my students to be successful in their studies, I believe my job is to motivate them to want to learn. But there is also a world beyond the PAT, and it is important to me that my students also have practice working with other people and using their critical thinking skills. I enjoy my role as a core subject teacher and as an option teacher, because students use these skills in both areas!

Aside from teaching Grade Nine, I also maintain a Writers’ Workshop bulletin board for students interested in entering creative writing and poetry contests.

On Wednesdays at lunch, the Cold Lake High School GSA (Gender and Sexuality Alliance) meets in my classroom. This is a safe space for students wishing to be involved in change at the school level, or who are simply looking for a place to socialize.

Finally, I will also be the director of the CLHS drama production of Bram Stoker's "Dracula," as adapted by William McNulty. Our performance dates will be March 2017! Auditions will be held September 14 to September 16 2016. See me for more details.

I look forward to getting to know your child and helping him or her navigate the new challenges and rewards of high school. Please contact me regularly with any questions or comments:
