Principal's Message

Welcome Back!

Welcome to Crossing Park School! Our school provides K – grade 6 educational services for half of Martindale and grade 7- grade 9 educational services to all of Martindale. Crossing Park is a large school with over 1150 students and 85 staff members. It has a diverse population, reflective of Canada, with many cultural, ethnic and language backgrounds represented. 
 
If you are new to Crossing Park, welcome to our school community! If you are returning, welcome back! I hope you all had a relaxing summer, are ready to return to school and are ready and excited to learn! 
 
At the end of the last school year, the decision was made to move away from “Leader In Me” (A Covey program) as it was no longer meeting the needs of the school in an effective way. This year will be a year of re-invention as we establish a new school culture that will emphasize the safety of students, respect for self and others, a growth mindset and the need to strive for excellence. This will be big work and students will play an important role in guiding this work forward.
 
I owe a big vote of thanks to our facility operators who have the building sparkling clean for the return of students. In a building as large as Crossing Park, this is not an easy task!
 
Traffic safety is a huge issue and there have been far too many near misses involving our students. As in the past, the Calgary Police Service and the Calgary Parking Authority will actively enforce the traffic laws and regulations. Please do not stop or park in the no stopping zone on Martindale Boulevard to drop off students. Pedestrians have priority in crosswalks and you must stop for people crossing in a marked crosswalk. Do not drop off students in the parking lot. The parking lots are restricted to staff only and are not safe for dropping off your children.

I am excited for the school year to come - to watch the teaching and learning that occurs in each and every classroom and teaching space, to watch students work together and support each other, to see the smiles of success and celebrations of achievement reflect the excellence of the school. I am proud to be part of such a wonderful school community!​
