Dear Parents/Guardians,

Spring is in the air and Catherine Nichols Gunn School continues to be an exciting place to work and learn. May promises to be a month full of many great learning opportunities and experiences. Please see our More News and Dates to Remember on our school website for things that are happening. Please let the office know if there is a change in your email address as we also email weekly reminders. Please note the Spring Concert for Gr. K-2 students on May 9th.

Thank you to School Council for their ongoing support. School Council directly supports most field trips at our school which is why no fees are asked for to pay for these trips. There are many trips this month and School Council has made most of them possible. Parent’s time to support School Council and their fundraising efforts impacts all students and our ability as a school to provide these learning opportunities. Please know you are all welcome and invited to attend and support all our students. The next school council meeting is May 30th at 7pm and nominations for the executive for next year will take place.

We look forward to our last formal face to face student-led conferences in May where you can learn about your child’s experiences at school. This is an excellent way to show your child how important their learning is. Please plan to attend on May 16th or 17th. You may also contact your child’s teacher at any time if you have other questions. Our last report card will come home on June 27th which is the last day of school and an 12:06pm dismissal.

Sincerely,

Steve Wigglesworth,

Principal​

We are seeking input from our families, students and staff about what we should consider in our planning for school re-entry for the 2020-2021 school year. We will be collecting feedback until June 11 https://t.co/X3YzfNH5ZK #yycbe #WeAreCBE https://t.co/xpHFZLEc3H

CBE playgrounds remain closed. We will begin re-opening on Monday, June 1. Openings will continue throughout next week. Once the yellow tape has been removed and signs say the playground is open, the equipment can be used according to health guidelines. #yycbe #WeAreCBE #yyc https://t.co/zBid3GNq26
