Dear Parents & Guardians,

On Wednesday, May 20, we will be holding our second school council meeting via SKYPE. If you are interested in attending, please send me an email so I can send you the link to the Skype meeting. Thank you.

Sadly, there will be NO kindergarten orientation this year due to COVID19. Please share with families and friends who have a kindergarten student starting at CWS in the fall. Thank you.

French as a Second Language at CWS

Starting in September, we will be having our Grade 4, 5, 6 students attend FSL lessons of 40 minutes - four times a week (Monday to Thursday). This will be considerably more than this year, as we ‘dappled our toes’ in FSL. 

In September, we will be following the Alberta Education guideline for the Grade 4-9 instructional minutes for FSL. Personally, I’m very excited as this means that our Grade 6 students will be in an excellent position to go into Late French Immersion for Grade 7 at Elboya School! Because of this, we will be looking for a new staff member to join us who is fluent in French.

School Budget

I will be sharing staffing updates/changes at the school council meeting on Wednesday next week.


Hope this finds you and your families well. Spring has sprung. This is a long weekend and I hope you will be enjoying much time outside in the sunshine!


Warm Regards,

Meike Thomsen,

Here's an opportunity for #WeAreCBE high school students - an online town hall with the mayor on Wed June 3 from 1-2 pm @YouthCentralYYC

Our playgrounds are re-opening this week. Please watch for our signs to say the equipment can be used according to health guidelines. #yycbe #WeAreCBE #yyc

Through their hard work and generosity, Room 5 students at @HullSchool learned about the importance of helping others and became proud 'parents' of two koala bears #WeAreCBE

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 #yycbe #WeAreCBE

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
