Principal's Message

February Principal Message

​"The greatness of a community is most accurately measured by the compassionate actions of its members." – Coretta Scott King.
We are at the mid-point in our school year and the beauty of the Belfast learning community continues to reveal itself. Preparations for the spring production are well underway, with many parents coming forward to join the production team to help with set construction and prop design. The show is evolving as students contribute ideas and collaborate to represent the essence of our place.
 
The first report card went home to families January 30, 2020. The document is a snapshot of your child’s learning at this point in the year and a piece of an ongoing conversation with your child’s teacher about your child’s strengths and next steps. Administration will be hosting a “Coffee and Chat” session February 11, 2020 at 8:30 am to answer any questions you may have about the report card.
 
Our Open House was well-attended by families interested in our Learning Through the Arts approach to curriculum.  Registration is ongoing.  If you have friends and neighbours that have not yet registered their child for next year, please encourage them to come in as soon as possible.  Early registrations help schools plan for next year.
 
As a School Administration, we seek feedback regularly from students, staff and parents to inform our work.  This month Grade 4 parents have the opportunity to complete the Accountability Pillar Survey. All surveys are anonymous. Results from the survey are offered back to schools in the spring to inform our School Development Planning.  Thank you to all parents that have completed the survey already; we want to hear from as many parents as possible.  We will open the Learning Commons February 18 from 8-9 am for any parents that would like to use our computers to complete the survey.
 
We would like to extend a huge thank you to Education Matters for funding our school field trip to the Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra for the performance of “The Hockey Sweater” and “Appalachian Spring.” It was a treat to be together as a whole school and share in a common experience. There were many priceless expressions on students’ faces throughout the performance. 
 
On a regular basis, we look for opportunities to continue the conversation with students about care for self, each other and our place.  This topic would be a great conversation starter at home.  Ask your child to add to this list of examples.
 
Care for yourself
Have the courage to speak up when you have a worry.
Be kind to yourself when you make a mistake.
Put forth your best effort in all you do. 
Ask for help when you need it.
 
Caring for others
Listen closely.
Respect others’ opinions and ideas.
Use kind words.
Consider your impact on others.
 
Care for place
Contribute to keeping the environment clean by removing wet boots at the door, picking up own garbage and returning borrowed items to their home.
Show care for personal belongings.
 
Sincerely,
 
Jacqueline Belcher
Principal, Belfast School
