Principal's Message

March Update

I hope to bid farewell to winter sooner than later and dream of a warm and refreshing spring season. Here are a few thoughts as I reflect on our recent school days of very cold wintery weather. 
LOOKING BACK...
Winter Activity Day
On February 22nd the weather warmed up and the students and teachers leapt with joy to engage in our winter activity day! Our School Spirit Committee offered a day filled with laughter, energy and a positive spirit while engaging in a variety of activities including physical fitness, traditional Indigenous games, a read aloud paired with a nature hunt and a community winter walk around the perimeter of our school grounds. On behalf of our staff, I wish to thank the many volunteers, including parents and the University of Calgary Kinesiology students that supported us in making this event a success! 
"Blue Day" Clubs
To accommodate students during the many “blue days”, our teaching staff has offered a variety of clubs. Some of the clubs offered this past February included origami, drumming, cooperative games, friendship bracelets, choir, zentangle, cultural art, Lego, building a Spanish neighborhood and friendship club. The students enjoyed participating in various clubs during the three weeks of indoor lunch recess. I wish to thank our teachers for volunteering their time.

Thanks from the Calgary Food Bank
What an amazing school community!  The Calgary Food Bank has expressed their sincere appreciation for food that Escuela Canyon Meadows donated in November as well as in December. We are definitely a very kind and caring community.

LOOKING FORWARD…
Dr. E.P. Scarlett High School Leadership students
During the week of March 11, we will welcome 50 new Dr. E.P. Scarlett High School Leadership students as 'buddies' for our students who are very excited to hear that they are returning! On Monday, the high school leadership students will act as reading buddies for our grade one to five students. On Wednesday and Thursday, the high school students will serve as social skill mentors to some of our grade one to five students. This 40 minutes partnership program will be running until mid-June.  Axe Capoeira Residency
Axe Capoeira instructors will be joining us this year to provide one week of Brazilian Martial arts with elements of music, dance and artistic expression during our physical education classes.  The one-week residency will be followed by a sharing assembly on Friday, March 15. Watch for more information in your weekly updates and on your child’s homeroom online blog. The students truly enjoy the enrichment activities. I wish to thank our School Society for their contribution that decreased our cost by 50%! Please pay online through My CBE/PowerSchool. 
Parent Teacher Conferences
Parents are invited to come and share in their child’s learning at our March conferences taking place during the afternoon and evening of Thursday, March 21 and the morning of Friday, March 22.  Students will be demonstrating their knowledge and conceptual understandings in a variety of subject areas.  Parents will also have an opportunity to discuss their child’s learning progress with the classroom teacher in a sit down meeting.  Please watch for conference booking information coming home soon.  To accommodate the conferences there will be an early dismissal (12:00 p.m.) on Thursday, March 21 and no classes on Friday, March 22.  

April is Literacy Month
Reading is to the mind what exercise is to the body.
-Joseph Addison
To observe Literacy Month, all students and teachers will celebrate our oral, reading and writing bilingual skills through various school activities such as a book swap and a wall in the gymnasium with “Mi palabra favorite.” 
Kind regards,
Bobbie Schmidt, Principal​
