    Principal's Message

    February 2018

    "A ship in a harbour is safe, but this is not what a ship is built for." John A. Shedd
    It has been a busy January here at Cambrian Heights School. From classes resuming and report cards going home to field trips and Community Activity Days, students have been active and engaged in their learning. Both Grades 1/2 and 3/4 had a chance to visit Heritage Park in January, while the Kindergarten class brought the Outdoors In to support their explorations in learning about snow.
    A big thank you to all those Cambrian Heights parents who came out for the Annual General Meeting of the School Council and the Fundraising Society. We would like to warmly welcome and congratulate Krista Steinke and Alex Grabner as the new co-chairs of the Council. Please feel free to come out and have your voice heard – all are welcome at these meetings!
    Kindergarten Registration for the 2018-19 school year opened on January 22nd. If you know of anyone looking to register a kindergarten student and they live in Cambrian Heights, Highwood, Queens Park Village, Livingston, or Carrington, please let them know about this opportunity.
    This time of year also sees Alberta Education’s Accountability Pillar Survey sent out to parents of students in Grades 4, 5, and 6 at Cambrian Heights School. We encourage all parents to thoughtfully complete the survey before the end of February. As an annual check-up on the education system, the Survey provides an opportunity for parents’ voices to be heard by Alberta Education and school authorities, as well as to ensure that we are equipping our students for success. The Survey is anonymous and, in addition to English and French, is available in Chinese, Punjabi, Arabic, Blackfoot, Dene, Cree, Korean, Spanish, Tagalog and Urdu. If you have questions, please follow the link for more information: https://education.alberta.ca/accountability-pillar/surveys/everyone/accountability-pillar-survey-overview/
    You may noticed have our new Assistant Principal, Mr. Eakins, outside monitoring the parking lot and cross walks, reminding parents about traffic safety in these congested areas. Please remember that Cambrian Heights School staff members, as well as School Health Partnership staff members, may be arriving and departing via the parking lot and this poses a safety risk. When dropping off or picking up, we suggest using the Alberta Bible College parking lot across Northmount Drive and then utilizing our Patrol team to cross Northmount or using the street adjacent to our school playground. We thank you for your cooperation.
    We would like to welcome our four practicum students from Mount Royal University to Cambrian Heights. These pre-service teachers will be working with students in a variety of settings as they develop their understandings of working with children in an educational environment. We look forward to seeing them in the school every Wednesday for the next few months. A reminder that the Staff Conventions takes place on February 15th and 16th of this year. There is no school for students these days as all Calgary Board of Education staff are required to attend professional learning sessions. Convention gives Staff an opportunity to reflect on and learn about new and innovative pedagogical practices and theories. Conventions are a core component of teacher professionalism, which in turn enhances student learning.
    Report Cards went home last Thursday, January 25. Please take the time to read through and understand this important document with your child, as a strong and collaborative school-home partnership is an excellent way to help your child be successful. Teachers spent the first day of school, January 8, working together to develop accuracy in their assessments and thoughtful comments about each student’s learning. Please know that you can connect with your child’s teacher at any time if you have questions or concerns about report cards or what is happening at school. We are always happy to be in touch with parents.
    Regarding Valentine’s Day, please remember that if your child wishes to give out cards in their classroom, there must be a card for every student in the class. Ensuring every child is included reflects our sense of community and the values we uphold at Cambrian Heights School.
    The Calgary Opera will be at Cambrian Heights at 9:45 AM on February 28, 2018. We would like to extend an invitation to the community to join us for this great event. Parents, siblings, and other family members are welcome to come and enjoy the show! See you there!
    Our Discovery Learning Centre is collecting donated items for the makerspace, where students can use their creativity and innovation to design and create new objects based on their learning. If you are able to help out, we are in need of the following items:
    simple hand tools, such as screwdrivers and needle-nose pliers
    sewing materials, such as fabric, thread, zippers, and buttons
    old electronics and computer parts to be disassembled
    Thank you in advance for your support!
    All the best to our Cambrian Heights families as we continue our learning in 2018.
