February-March Update

Excerpted from our Feb. - March Newsletter​

As I reflect on what has transpired over the course of 2017, I am happy to say that 2018 promises much excitement and anticipation for great things to come. 

Past focuses…
In December, the ME to WE Club had our school focus on global issues that were designed to support a Calgary optometrist who volunteered her services to work on a mission in Jamaica with the CVC (Canadian Vision Care).  They are a registered charity organization dedicated to providing eye care to those without the funds or access to proper care. ME to WE Club members once again used their time to raise awareness around our school and encouraged students to donate adult and child prescription glasses. Almost 100 pairs of glasses were collected for donation.  Congratulations!

The most recent campaign ME to WE organized was WE CREATE 'CHANGE' in partnership with the Royal Bank of Canada.  School members of this powerful student organization at Brentwood School encouraged our school community to raise money to purchase dairy goats to help families with an income-generating opportunity to lift themselves out of poverty. Through morning announcements, eye-catching posters, classroom visits, and special events days, our school community raised enough funds to purchase 43 dairy goats!  Bravo Brentwood!

Future focuses…
As part of the Brentwood Indigenous Strategy and understanding reconciliation, we have several future plans for members from the Indigenous Community to share knowledge and resources with our school.  Elders, Aboriginal presenters, literature resources that support understanding of ways of being, reconciliation information, and a variety of activities that present the Indigenous story have been set in place to help us better understand the history of the Indigenous people and the way forward to the future.  I am amazed and very proud of our students and staff as to how they have embraced this important work.  Well done everyone!

Student Led Conferences are scheduled for March 22/23.  Be sure to review your child’s progress as presented in their January report card.  This will help give correlation to the work your child will present to you at the conference.

Please note that the student-led conference is a very special and exciting time for students.  Your child will depend on your undivided and personal attention for the entire conference.  There will be several student-led conferences conducted in the classroom at the same time. It is important that all conferences have the opportunity to be conducted without distractions.  For this reason, we ask that siblings not accompany you to the conference.  School-aged siblings may read or engage in a quiet activity in the hall while they await their own conference.  As well, we ask for cell phones to be set on vibrate. We thank you for your cooperation in helping to ensure all parents can enjoy this important time with their child!  Read more in this newsletter about how students and teachers will share children’s knowledge and wisdom!
