Principal's Message

Farewell to 2018-2019

​The energy and excitement of learning is everywhere at Escuela Canyon Meadows!  Our committed and passionate teachers are now reflecting and sharing their learning journey with their colleagues for the 2018-2019 school year. Students have documented their learning journey; they were deeply invested emotionally and intellectually in the work; they knew why the content mattered to them, to the discipline and to the real world. All of their learning experiences enriched their inquiries within a bilingual Spanish Program.
The collective work is reflective of our School Development Plan (SDP). The strong alignment of Canyon Meadows SDP’s goals, targets and strategies creates a culture of continuous improvement. The goals, of the strategic plan, continue to focus on growing our literacy and numeracy competencies. There has been a sustained and clear focus on creating an optimal learning environment; ensuring that that each child is engaged in high quality learning.   Staff has been involved in professional learning, coaching, and building the teaching teams to ensure consistency of high impact teaching and learning practice across the school. Together, we have a strong belief that all students can achieve at high levels within our Spanish bilingual program.
In reflection of the 2018-2019 year, we have a lot to celebrate this school year:
• Sra. García worked alongside teachers from Kindergarten to Grade 2 for a winter celebration of learning and with our teachers from Grade 3 to Grade 5 for our spring Learning Celebrations.
• Grades 3, 4 and 5 hosted a winter carolling concert with Sra. Garcia.
• Division I and Division II Choir opportunities; Division I performing at Music Monday and our Division II Choir performing at the school level, carolling at the Calgary Hitman game as well as the Winter Holiday Tour.  
• Our Grade fives represented our school for the Remembrance Day Assembly and at the annual Que Pasa event at the Southern Jubilee. 
• Students enjoyed the student and parent performances during our Music Monday in May. 
• Students performed for the Latin Dance, Axe Capoeira and our Oral Story Telling evening. 
• Celebration of the April Literacy Month that included multiple activities that sponsored building a community and a love for reading in Spanish and English.
• Many of our students enjoyed the friendships that developed with their “Dr. E.P. Scarlett High School” buddy as well as with their Calgary Reads mentor throughout the school year. 
• Students donated to a variety of charities including: Veterans Food Drive, Mayor’s Christmas Food Drive, and Birdies for Kids.
• All classrooms participated in both in-school and out-of-school field study experiences. 
• Grades 1 to Grade 3 went swimming at the Canyon Meadows Swimming Pool.
• Grades 4 and Grade 5 enjoyed an active living week at the Trico Centre.
• Early June families joined some of the teachers for “Bike to School” day.
• Our school built significant partnerships with post-secondary institutions including Mount Royal University and the University of Calgary. Many of our teachers have coached upcoming new teachers with a primary focus on supporting and improving the student learning within rich bilingual learning environments.
• Students enjoyed participating in a winter activity day and a summer activity day.
• The students, staff and families wished our grade fives success with their middle school transition.
• We concluded the school year with our School Council’s much anticipated event of the year, Fiesta de Verano. 
June is a stepping off milestone for all the grades after growing one more year and preparing to move into the next part of their learning journey! We are excited about this growth and the successes we have witnessed. We marvel at how your children have grown academically, socially and emotionally and in their increased engagement level with life-long learning.  
We bid a fond farewell and a heartfelt thank you to Sra. Styles (Teacher) and Sra. Rivera (Spanish Educational Assistant) and Sra. Fuentes (Grade 5 Spanish Visiting Teacher) as they leave us and move onto new adventures with the Calgary Board of Education. 
Thank you for the wonderful year of learning! We appreciate the support and trust from you, our parents and volunteers! You have done an immense amount of work in support of student learning including:  reading to children, volunteering your time in the library, raising funds to buy valuable resources and equipment, offering hours of time to provide special opportunities for children, going on fieldtrips and attending Celebrations of Learning to show children how much you honour their efforts, their persistence and their accomplishments. This list could go on and on. We could not do this work without you! Working together turns the school into a home. 
September 3, 2019 we will start another school year filled with new adventures. The school office opens on Wednesday, August 28th. Families will receive an email from the 2019-20 school year teacher by August 30th.
On behalf of the staff at Escuela Canyon Meadows we wish you and your family a restful and safe summer holiday. May you experience happiness and joy during this summer season! We look forward to working with your family during the 2019-2020 school year! 
Warm regards,
Sra. Schmidt, Principal
