  • Please note that there is no school on Monday, May 20 in observation of Victoria Day.
  • On Friday, May 24 at 11:30 am, rooms 3, 4, & 27 will be hosting a ‘COOPERATION’ themed assembly.  Parents and guardians of students in these classes may join us in the gym for this event. 
  • We know we make better decisions to support student learning when we build understanding and work together.  That is why we will be sharing a short presentation about the CBE budget and how we develop our own school budget after school on Wednesday, May 22 from 4:00 pm – 5:00 pm. There will also be an opportunity to ask questions following the presentation.
    • At this meeting, learn:
      • Where funding for the CBE comes from and how it is spent
      • About the Resource Allocation Method (RAM) used to fund schools
      • How we estimate, then finalize, RAM for our school
  • A Message from the Coventry Hills Elementary Fundraising Society:
    • We are so excited for the Rodeo Roundup this coming Thursday and hope you are too!  As this is a fundraiser, we really need the volunteer support of our families to ensure the event runs smoothly.  You do not need to be a CBE cleared volunteer to help at this event!  If you would like to help, please click on the link to sign up:  https://www.signupgenius.com/go/5080a4dada929a4ff2-chefs1
  • Popsicle Days are coming! Once again, the Coventry Hills Fundraising Society is offering Popsicle days for students in grades 1-3.  If you are interested in your child participating, please click on the following link to order and pay through Healthy Hunger. https://healthyhunger.ca/index.php
    • Please DO NOT send any cash to the school as only orders paid for through Healthy Hunger will be processed.
  • As advertised last week, we will be painting the no parking zone curbs around Coventry Hills School this coming weekend.  This event will take place on Saturday, May 25 from 12:00 pm – 2:00 pm (weather permitting).  Please consider helping us out!  With enough volunteers, we anticipate that the painting can be done in about two hours.

  • A Message from the Coventry Hills Elementary Fundraising Society:
    • YAHOO! Its time for our 14th Annual Family Dance! We are so excited that our dance is just around the corner on Thursday, May 23rd! Dance Flyers have gone home with your children and we hope you will join us as CHEFS presents Rodeo Round Up.  Tickets are only $10.00 per family.  We have some great games in store for the kids, fun photo booth(s) and hopefully everyone will enjoy some Two Stepping!!  Our concession and photo booth will be cash free and we recommend you buy your concession coupons in advance.  We are looking forward to seeing everyone on the 23rd.  Volunteers will be needed to help out with this fundraiser (we can’t do it without YOU).  Please use this link to sign up: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/5080a4dada929a4ff2-chefs1

  • Save the Date!  Our Traffic Safety Committee continues their dedicated work toward improving traffic and safety around Coventry Hills School.  On May 25 we are looking for a dedicated group of volunteers who would be willing to help us with curb painting.  The City of Calgary has issued permits to us, allowing us to mark certain “no parking” zones with yellow curb paint.  The goal of this part of the project is to raise awareness for drivers of areas that are off limits to park in.  We anticipate that with 15-20 volunteers we should be able to complete the work in approximately two hours.  Watch for a sign up to be sent out in the coming weeks.

Have a great weekend,

Mrs. Pelling​
