Mr. Lipman

My name is James Paul Lipman and it is my pleasure to welcome your child to my classroom for a wonderful year of learning.  Subjects I will be teaching this year include: Language Arts, Math, Science, Social Studies, Art, Health and Physical Education.  The students will learn French from Ms. Richards this year.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns by writing a note in your child's agenda or by email at

Parent Tips

Here are some ways you can help your child succeed this year:

  • Celebrate your child’s success, no matter how small it may seem.  This will keep him/her enthusiastic about learning and proud of their work.
  • Ensure that your child gets enough rest, exercise and a balanced diet.  Please encourage him/her to bring a water bottle filled with fresh water daily.
  • Re. homework, I will not assign homework for the sake of having homework. I will try to give students ample time to complete their work in class. Some projects, such as Book Reports in Language Arts, will be assigned well ahead of time, so there will always be ample time to complete these projects as well. If your child has unfinished work from class, it may need to come home to complete from time-to-time.
  • Please remind your child to practice their home reading on a regular basis.

  • Please have your child go on our digital levelled reading program Raz Kids and share their reading with you.

  • Check out the Learn Alberta website for learning activities to do at home.
