Principal's Message

June 2018

“Our greatest glory is not in never failing, but in rising up every time we fail.” — Ralph Waldo Emerson
Greetings Cambrian Heights Families,
It’s almost unbelievable that it is the beginning of June. It seemed like we skipped right over Spring and went from Winter directly into Sum-mer! June may be the final month of the school year, but it is also one of the busiest!
Transportation Pre-Registration
The transportation pre-registration period will begin on Tuesday, May 22 and close on Monday, June 11. Transportation pre-registrations can be completed using My CBE Account. To be included in the yellow school bus route planning for September, parents must pre-register by June 11. Any registrations received after that date will not be considered until route changes are done after Thanksgiving. The more registrations we receive by the deadline, the more efficient route planning will be for September.
Kindergarten Orientation
A big thank you to all the families, staff, and students who came out for our Kindergarten Orientation on May 23rd. We enjoyed meeting and get-ting to know our Kindergarten students for next year! It was a busy evening with School Council, Alberta Health Services, and Calgary Public Library all coming out to share resources and information about start-ing school. We can’t wait to see all our new students in September!
Volunteer Tea
On May 29, we celebrated all the wonderful volunteers in our school with the Volunteer Tea! It was wonderful to have the students share per-formances as a tribute to all the volunteer work that has gone on this year. Thanks to the staff, students, and of course, parents, who made it such a special event! Everyone loved the black and yellow “bee” theme – thanks volunteer for bee-ing so great!
Grade 3 Student Learning Assessments
Students in Grade 3 participated in Student Learning As-sessments (SLAs) on May 27 and 28. SLAs are digitally-based provincial assessments that enable both parents and teachers to identify student strengths and areas for growth. The purposes of the SLAs are to improve student learning and enhance instruction for students. With these purposes in mind, the SLAs have been developed pri-marily as a tool for teachers and parents to help inform and support student learning. For more information, please visit https://education.alberta.ca/student-learning-assessments/about-the-slas/
Provincial Achievement Testing (PAT)
As we move into the month of June, parents of children in Grade 6 continue to have questions about the Provincial Achievement Tests, or PATs. Students completed the written portion of the English Language Arts exam on May 10th. All other exams take place in June. Parents should note that alt-hough we strongly encourage students to do their best on these tests, they do not have any bearing on the student’s report card marks or progress to the next school year. Instead, the purpose of the tests is to help Alberta Education better understand if students are learning what they are expected to, and to assist school jurisdictions and schools in monitoring and improving student learning. More information about PATs is available on the Alberta Education website.
Sun Safety
As we get closer to the summer months, the sun is shining more and students are spending more time outside. It is especially important at this time of year to remember the basics of sun safety. At school, that means coming prepared with a hat and water bottle. Alberta Health Services has put to-gether a great resource for families, which can be found online: https://www.albertapreventscancer.ca/reduce-your-risk/limit-uv-rays/sun-safety/
Fun Day & BBQ – June 22
The Cambrian Heights School Fun Day & BBQ will be held on Friday, June 22, this year. As a school, we have decided to go with a Hawaiian Luau theme. Feel free to come dressed in Hawaiian shirts, flower necklaces, hats, and sunglasses! Staff and parent volunteers will be hosting exciting and fun activities, music will be playing, and good times will be had! Following the fun activities, students will enjoy a barbecue, put on by School Council, and an assembly where the winner of the Cambrian Heights School Fundraising Society guitar raffle will be announced!
Grade 6 Celebration and Farewell – June 21
Cambrian Heights School would like to invite our community to share in the celebration of our amaz-ing Grade 6 students as they prepare to transition to Junior High. The celebration will be held on June 21 at 1:00 PM. Join the entire Cambrian Heights School in the gymnasium as we say farewell to these hard-working students!
SoundKreations Bollywood Dance – June 25 & 26
Keeping the learning going right to the end of the year (and beyond), we have invited SoundKreations to work with our students during the last week of school. SoundKreations is an in-school program pro-vider that “breathes life and relevance into dance and poetry units”. SoundKreations will be working with students as they learn the dance style of “Bollywood”. The popularity of Bollywood has taken the world by storm, especially since the 2000’s. Originating from the Indian film industry, this style of dance meshes the rich history of traditional Indian dance with many new Western styles that you may see on Broadway, or in modern hip-hop music videos.
