Dates to Remember


Principal's Message

October 11, 2019

​Hello CJP Families,
It is at Thanksgiving that we take time to reflect on what we are thankful for, I too, would like to take a moment to give thanks. I am grateful to be the principal at Captain John Palliser School and to have an opportunity to work alongside of some of the very best students, families, educators and staff in Calgary!
First of all, I am thankful for our students. They come to class every day and put significant effort into becoming more skilled and knowledgeable citizens. They are open to new ideas, new concepts, and new experiences, and we learn from them every day. They come from different circumstances and backgrounds to learn and grow together. That process is not always easy, but they struggle through the difficult moments together, and they celebrate their successes together. I am proud of them, and I consider myself lucky to lead their school.
The parents at Captain John Palliser School are the most engaged and enthusiastic I have ever worked with. CJP would not be what it is without their support and the effective partnerships they have created with our staff. We only need to look at the great turn-out from our last School Council meeting to know how very engaged our families are. Our School Council and our Parent Association are exceptional examples of the enthusiasm and effort evident in our parent community. Thank you!
What we do at Captain John Palliser School could never be achieved without the dedication of the staff behind the scenes. From our facility operator and cleaner to the amazing team in the office headed up by Mrs. Arnason, our lunchroom supervisors and Library Assistant, the persistence and initiative they demonstrate is uncommon, and I appreciate their dedication and professionalism.
I could not do what I do without the help of CJP’s Assistant Principal Helen Sharpe. Her dedication to CJP is clear and her work is essential to establishing the organizational culture, positive environment, and student-centered instructional program necessary for our students to grow and thrive. I am grateful every day for the opportunity to work with and learn from her.
And of course, the backbone of our organization – the teachers! I want to extend a very special thank you to our Teachers, Education Assistants, Behaviour Support Worker, and School Assistants. The teaching staff at CJP is tireless. They constantly challenge their students and themselves to reach higher and accomplish more. Every day I come to work I am renewed by their energy, their enthusiasm, and their willingness to try new things while remaining grounded in foundational teaching practices. Our teachers are continually adjusting their instruction to help each child reach his or her potential. So to the Captain John Palliser Teaching team please accept my sincere gratitude and appreciation as I say thank you for your service; your service to our students, your service to our school and your service to our community. To all of our students, families and staff, I wish you a very meaningful Thanksgiving.
Dr. Bettesworth
