Principal's Message

Welcome Back!

The first full week in September started with its usual business and it has been great to see our students so excited to see their friends at the start of another year of learning.  We are excited about the possibilities this year brings and we look forward to working with you as valued partner in your child’s learning journey.  As always, please continue to keep your child’s teacher informed of important information regarding your child and please do not hesitate to contact them should you have questions or concerns that need to be addressed.
Our enrollment is up a little from the numbers we anticipated would be in our school back in June. This is a trend that is happening in many of our CBE Schools.  The CBE has seen many new schools open over the last couple of years and this unprecedented growth brings new staff members who bring their skills and talents to our building.  We are very excited for how this year has started and look forward to the year ahead with great anticipation for a fabulous year. As valued members of your child’s learning team, we would like to invite you to meet your child’s core teachers to share any important information that will be helpful in making this year as successful as possible.  We will be having interviews on Thursday, September 21st from 1-8pm and on Friday, September 22nd from 8am – 1pm.  Thursday is an early dismissal day with school ending at 12pm and there is no school on Friday in order to facilitate these important meetings.  We look forward to meeting with you!
As part of planning for this year there have been many trips that have been booked for this fall in various grades.  As always these types of trips help to enhance classroom curriculum and we thank you for your patience as the CBE works through the fee implications of Bill 1.   Some of these trips have included:  the grade 8s who participated in the River Watch program (http://www.riverwatch.ab.ca/)  and the grade 9s who participated in the Beakerhead program that runs every year in the beginning weeks of September (https://www.beakerhead.com/).
Our new playground is a smashing success. Thanks again to all the parents, sponsors and volunteers who made this possible.  To maintain some sense of order we have the following lunchtime schedule: Monday – grade 8/9, Tuesday – grade 7, Wednesday – grade 6 and Thursday – grade 5.
Friday Schedules
We are trying something new this year with our Friday schedule.  Since we have a half day we wanted to ensure that the learning blocks are full 55 minute blocks just like the rest of the week.  This means that we will have a tumbling Friday schedule.  The teachers will walk students through this in their homerooms on Friday mornings.
New school website
There have been some technical glitches that we are working through with the IT team downtown and we thank you for your patience.  Please refer to our website for the most up to dates. The intent of the new website is to eventually allow schools more flexibility in having specific calendars that relate to what your child might be involved with (Ex: Volleyball Team, Band etc.) that can be downloaded to your personal calendars.  While the CBE has not rolled out this portion of the website yet, we hope to get there soon – please stay tuned.
