Dates to Remember


Principal's Message

Jan 18, 2019

​Report cards came home this week, we trust you celebrated your child’s accomplishments with them. If you did not receive a copy of your child’s report card please call contact your child’s teacher for clarification.  
We believe that every child does the best they can each day, and everyday is a new day. The report card is only one format to communicate your child’s learning each year. Conversations with your child, information shared in blogs, tasks that come home, celebration of learning evenings, IRIS, and conferences are some of the other ways children are able to celebrate their learning with you. Thank you for being our partners in your child’s education. 
This week we both had the opportunity to meet Christopher Usih, our new Chief Superintendent. We were inspired! Mr. Usih recently moved to Calgary after almost three decades in Toronto. He spoke to all school based administrators about CBE’s reputation across the country as an organization of exceedingly high calibre, and how honoured he is to have been chosen to join our team. He shared that the CBE offers more alternative programs than his former board, and he has recognised that choice is important to Calgarians. He emphasized hope, and how important it is for all our students and staff to have hope. When we form relationships and connections with our student’s we give them hope for the future and allow them to share their learning in a safe environment. He has already had the opportunity to tour a few schools and engage with students. Based on his readings as well as his interactions at schools he described how amazing all our students are and how much he has enjoyed meeting some of them. He expressed his enthusiasm for leading our organization, and acknowledged the foundation that he has inherited. When speaking about teaching and learning he compared it to a marathon, because our success and challenges inspire us to go the extra mile. He talked about the strength of consistency he has seen throughout all his visits, and how each and every site has a clear focus on doing their part to ensure ‘success for each student.’ As his weeks turn into months as part of the CBE he is eager to learn more about us. He recognises that in a system that serves over 120,000 students each day we still have work to do. Mr. Usih is ready to lead us. 
We encourage you to follow him on twitter @ChristopherUsih. His tweets are taking us on a journey through the CBE as he is introduced to various departments, schools, and teachings. Having an opportunity to see a variety of components of our organization through new eyes is enlightening and inspirational. We are in good hands. 
Your CBE Administrative Team 
Leanne Bettesworth and Helen Sharpe​
