Financial Limitations for Staffing 2019-2020

Dear Canyon Meadows Families, As you have likely heard through the media and at this week's school council meeting, all CBE schools are facing financial limitations for staffing in the 2019-2020 school year. This will necessitate adjustments to our school organization. What? As with every year, we need to work with the budget provided when organizing our school. For the 2019-2020 year, we have fewer resources to maintain equity in classrooms. [...]

November Update

​Report Cards  
The first report card of the school year will be posted on December 16 at 2:45 p.m. and can be found on MyCBE/PowerSchool.  Last year’s report cards were posted on MyCBE/PowerSchool and a hardcopy for each student was sent home. We have had a full year to transition to going paperless so starting this year, the school will not be printing hardcopies for all students. However, if you require a printed report card, please contact the school.
For more information and a better understanding of what your child’s report card tells you, please click on the following resources:

Be Kind
Our one school expectation is that our students are kind to themselves, others and our school. Developing kindness allows our students to have empathy and be more tolerant of others’ uniqueness. Teachers are weaving the lessons of kindness through their inquiry questions. For example, our kindergarten students are focussed on the question: “How can I help my world be a kind place?” Our grade four and five students are exploring the question, “How do my actions impact my identity?” Our School Development Plan includes a well-being goal; allowing our school to be intentional and explicit with developing the skills to appropriately express emotions and understand how our actions impact others. We will be using the strategies identified in the Zones of Regulation Program to develop common expectations and consistent language across the school. Together we build a culture of kindness where all members or our community know they belong and that they matter to the Escuela Canyon Meadows family.
Latin Dance Residency
We had a spectacular turn out for our Latin Dance Performances! Coming together creates a sense of belonging and builds school community while celebrating our rich and diverse culture. A special and heartfelt thanks to our dedicated and committed Parent Society for subsidizing the cost of this residency!
Staffing Update
Escuela Canyon Meadows works in partnership with post secondary institutions to provide a rich learning experience for future Spanish bilingual teachers. We wish to welcome Sr. Dexter Fuhrman and Sra. Claudia Gomez, our new student teachers, from the University of Calgary. Sra. Kim and Sra. Bradley will be their mentors. Having student teachers in class will help our students gain an understanding of some of the key elements in teacher work today: collaboration, establishing collegial relationships, and working skillfully with others to plan, instruct and assess student learning. Sr. Fuhrman and Sra. Gomez will be with us from November to mid-December and then from mid-February to the end of April. 
Volunteering    
The staff at Escuela Canyon Meadows School recognizes that our volunteers are the heart and soul of our school community. Volunteering is about commitment, caring, and helping others. It's about working together with others who share a common goal to bring about positive change. Volunteering is a prime example of active citizenship and builds a sense of community and belonging.
For security reasons, all volunteers and visitors must sign in at the office before going into the school. You will be provided with a badge to identify you as a volunteer. This process helps us know where you are in case of an emergency. All volunteers must comply with the Calgary Board of Education's volunteer security clearance process. 
Supervision and Dismissal
Please use the designated crosswalks. We wish to keep all of our little ones safe.
We have teacher supervision from 7:45-8:00 a.m. and during morning recess 10:10-10:25. We dismiss at 2:45 p.m. (2:40 for kindergarten). Please note that we do not have after school supervision. Students in kindergarten and grade one must have a parent or parent-designated adult to be released to. If your kindergarten or grade one child takes the bus, he/she will be taken to the bus at the end of the day.  
Every family should discuss with their child(ren) end of the day routines; e.g. when and where parents or parent-designated adults will pick them up and what to do in the event of an unexpected change of plan. Our teachers have reminded students that if they have not been picked up by 2:50 p.m., they are to look for a teacher dismissing their students, or come back into the school and go to the office. 
We kindly request any after school arrangements, such as playdates etc., be made at home. Thank you for your support in establishing clear routines with your child(ren) and for picking them up promptly at the end of the day.
Sra. Schmidt
