It is hard to believe it is October! September was full of learning, establishing routines, old and new friendships and developing a sense of our school community this year. The hallways, classrooms and school yard are full of engaged conversation, laughter and much curiosity.

This year, our School Development Plan will be focused again on math and literacy - specifically problem solving and reading. We are continuing our research partnership with the University of Calgary, and look forward to deepening our work together. Ms. Corinne, Mrs. O'Connor and Ms. Jaques will work flexibly within and amongst the classes to support our SDP work, as well as English Language Learning.

Thankfulness is on the mind's of many at this time of year. The Connaught School community is a special place, and I am ever grateful to the students, families and staff for making it so.

It is not joy that makes us grateful; it is gratitude that makes us joyful. - David Steindl-Rast

Run Club/Cross Country

On Thursday, October 4 many of our run club students, along with Mrs. Clark, Ms. Kristy, Mr. T and Ms. Rae will be attending a Cross Country meet at Cecil Swanson School. We are excited to represent Connaught School!
Clothing Exchange

On Thursday, October 11 from 4:30 - 6:30pm Connaught School will be hosting a clothing exchange in the gym. Please bring some re-usable bags and fill them with as much as your family needs for just a twoonie! There will be baby through to adult clothing and other odds and ends available.

Scientists in School

We have had an incredible partnership with Scientists in School for the past three years. They have provided 2 workshops for every class, every year - that is a total of over 80 workshops!! On October 25, from 6:00-8:00pm we invite you and your family to 'get sciency' with us. Scientists with diverse expertise will be running a variety of experiments to enjoy.
