Principal's Message

Busy Finish to an Amazing Year!

​It is so hard to believe that it is already June and May was like a blink of time and yet packed full with such exciting learning! We began the month with the a​mazing Earth Rangers who came and shared with us four very special endangered species two of those flew right over our heads to show off! 
And they have asked us to remind you that June 5th is World Environment Day and this year’s theme is “Connecting People to Nature” and are asking everyone to take part in the “Get Outside Challenge” by spending time to enjoy nature outside!! Have you become an Earth Ranger?
Speaking about nature and Science, we have been most fortunate to have hosted a number of workshops with the Science in School residencies. In the first week of May, the Grade 3s studied Animal Life Cycles and the Grade 4 Amazing Plant Changes and all the students loved the experience. The following week of May the Grade Six students became sleuths as they learned some im-portant understandings of Forensic Science. 
And then in the last week of May, the Kindergarten students spent a morning with Scientist Louise who taught them about “Bugs in our World” where they learned all the parts of specific insects and then were able to create bugs of their own! And in June they are back to work with our Grade Five students. The Scientists in Schools team have been our most successful set of workshops at Cambrian Heights School.
Interestingly, the Grade 1/2 students are learning all about Canadian wildlife and also about WORMs (they even have worms living in a worm farm left by Princess Dirt after her presentation on how worms help composting!) Their extension project for this learning is to create their own fictional Canadian animal to celebrate the 150 year birthday of Canada.
In May our Grade 3 students completed their second set of the digital version of Alberta Government’s Student Learning Assessments in both numeracy and literacy, which showed a marked improvement since September. The Grade 6 students completed Part A of their English Language Arts Provincial Achievement Test.
These assessments help inform the government of each student’s academic growth over their years in school and we strongly encourage that all students be present for their exams, but their results from these tests do not appear on their report cards! June 19, 20, 22 and 23 are the rest of the Grade 6 Provincial Achievement Tests and these results will be sent to parents on a separate form on the last day of school with their final report card on June 28.
May was also the month to showcase the talents of all the Grade 5 and Grade 6 students in their two incredible performances of “The Big, Bad Wolf” on Wednesday, May 17 both in the afternoon and again in the evening. The gym was packed! The songs and all the lines the students had to learn really showed the talent and commitment of our Cambrian Heights students!
Erma Bombeck was quoted as saying, “Volunteers are the only human beings on the face of the earth who reflect this nation’s compassion, unselfish caring, patience, and just plain loving one another.” We have been most fortunate at Cambrian Heights to have over 80 awesome volunteers and we hope to celebrate and honour them on Tuesday, June 6 from 1:00 – 2:15 p.m. Please R.S.V.P.! Thank you for your service to our Cambrian Heights School community!
Mayor’s Expo – Art Installment -“Trash to Treasure”On June 7 our EcoLeaders Team plus our entire Grade 3/4 Team are off to the Mayor’s Environmental Expo, held at the City Municipal Building. The Eco Leaders will share their yearlong work about composting and recycling at Cambrian Heights School. The presentation, which they shared with Cambrian Heights at their assembly, will be showcased at a booth and they will also be displaying the above art installation entitled “Trash to Treasure”, created by our EcoLeaders and the Grade 3/4 Team. The students will also have the opportunity to attend workshops and presentations throughout their visit.
We have many exciting events still to come during this last month of our school year:
School Photo including all students and staff on June 12.
Grade 6 Provincial Achievements Tests will be held during the week of June 19—June 23.
Swim Day is June 21 (all students will have roughly an hour swim). Schedule posted shortly.
Play Day and our final BBQ Lunch (11:30-12:15) on Tuesday, June 27 beginning at 9:00
Glow Bowling and Farewell to Grade 6s on Monday, June 26.
Last Day of Classes is June 28 and it is an Early Dismissal Day.
Final Report Cards will be sent home on June 28th.
Appeals Day is June 29.
Please also be sure to attend our Kindergarten Assembly on Wednesday, June 14 from 8:30-9:00! As with all assemblies, our Cambrian Heights School’s community is welcome to join us for the final assemblies of the year. We will be sending out one final newsletter closer to the end of the month to inform you of any and all changes for next year. In the meantime, put your seatbelts on for a fast and furious June!
