Weekly Message

​Please find information within this message to help you plan for next week at Glenbrook.  For more  information, please visit our school website at:  http://school.cbe.ab.ca/school/Glenbrook/Pages/default.aspx
 
PRINCIPAL’S MESSAGE 
Every June, we support the annual Calgary Bike to School Day! Tuesday, June 4th, we want to encourage as many staff and students as possible to SAFELY bike to school.  The event is meant to promote healthy, active living, environmental awareness, bicycle safety, and FUN!
Just like last year, we will be using Rm 22 (back of the Learning Commons) as a safe bicycle storage space for any students who do not have a bicycle lock to use on the bike racks outside.  Please remember it is the LEGAL REQUIREMENT in Alberta to wear a bicycle helmet while biking for anyone under the age of 18.  If you are curious about specific Calgary bylaws regarding bicycles, please visit the link below.  Did you know that children up to the age of 14 are allowed to bike on the sidewalk, but afterwards must use the roadways?

We have received a complaints from home owners concerned for the student’s welfare being exposed to the fertilized chemicals as students are picking up the grass and throwing it into the air.
