No Photos Please

We would like to remind parents that no photos are allowed to be taken of children on the playground during school supervision times (8:55 am to 4:00 pm). This is to protect the privacy wishes of all parents and children within the playground at during that time.

Principal's Message

December 2018

But the world is still unpredictable and still we survive by the grace of chance and the strength of our choices. Gathering Moss by Robin Wall Kimmerer
Dear Families
Thank you for the great response to Student Learning Conferences. In September 93% of our families attended and in November we had 97% of families join us to learn more about their children’s work at Edgemont. We also enjoyed hosting the Grade 3 Celebration of Learning last week and appreciate all of the families and friends who came to listen to the students talk about their learning and demonstrate their knowledge, their skills and their deep understanding. We will have a Celebration of Learning for each grade team over the course of the school year.
Many of you will have been reading about class sizes in the media and we wanted to share our results at Edgemont. The data provided below is based on our numbers on September 28th, which is the data that is used to create our school budget for the year.

At Edgemont School, all of our classroom spaces contain classes of students – we have no empty spaces. As we have for many, many years, we even use Room 4 which is a smaller space, as a classroom and reduce the number of students working in the room. This year we only have four half day Kindergarten classes, rather than the six we have had for the past four years. Even though our class sizes are larger than we might like, we have no more spaces available to create new classes. We therefore use our additional funding to provide staff in other ways. In addition to our classroom teachers we also have 3 specialist teachers:
French
Music
Physical Education
our Admin Team:
Curriculum Learning Leader
Resource Learning Leader
Assistant Principal
Principal
and our Learning Support Teachers
ELL & Literacy: .9 teachers (2 teachers, each with part time jobs)
Our French specialist works with the Grade 3 team for almost 50% of the school day
An additional full time ELL & Literacy Teacher will join our team in January and our 6 Classroom Support Staff, with one assistant working in each Grade Team.
In support of all of our students we also have the following staff:
an administrative secretary
a school secretary
a library assistant
2 school assistants
and 8 Noon Supervisors (along with 8 Education/School Assistants) who supervise the Lunch hour.
We are not “capped” in our enrolment and therefore we continue to welcome in new students who move into the community of Edgemont throughout the school year. Over time, some families move in, and others move out and so you will notice changes in our class sizes during the year.
We believe that by distributing our financial resources in the ways described above, we have thoughtfully provided for a range of supports for all of your children.
If you have questions about our class sizes, we would be most happy to answer them for you. Please contact us at 403-777-6340.
Yours sincerely,
by Sharon, Bill and the Edgemont Staff
