PRINCIPAL’S MESSAGE 

Every June, we support the annual Calgary Bike to School DayTuesday, 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?

As previously communicated, Ms. Kaine’s  last day will be Friday May 31. We will say goodbye formally to Ms. Kaine with the whole school in attendance at the end of the Talent Show assembly on Friday morning, and send her off with lots of hugs and wishes as she enters her new role. We know she is a star and will shine in her new position.

I am very pleased to announce that Kim Boucher has been hired to fill the Assistant Principal position in the fall. Ms. Boucher will be visiting Glenbrook several times during June, to make the transition smoother. Our Learning Leader, Mr. Kowalchuk will have a substitute in for the last four weeks in order to assist with administrative duties for the month of June, in the absence of a full time AP.  Ms. Kim Boucher has lovely people skills and a wealth of experience and expertise. She has a very strong background in resource work, supporting diverse populations and complex needs. Ms. Boucher also possesses a solid pedagogy in supporting teachers around task design, personalized learning, and for setting student goals and strategies for ongoing improvement. Her diverse background experiences in K-12 and strong skill set make her an excellent fit for the Assistant Principal position at Glenbrook.

PRINCIPAL’S MESSAGE

It was terrific to see everyone out at our Student Involved conferences! The purpose of student-involved conferences is for students to communicate their current learning, take ownership of their learning, and set goals and strategies for moving forward. Both parents and students can take part in assessing actual work samples showing evidence of their child’s learning in relation to curricular outcomes, rubrics, and I can statements from the Alberta Program of Studies. Thank you for being an important part of your child’s learning progression. 

huge thank you to our School Council for a lovely supper provided to teachers before conferences on Thursday evening, it was so appreciated.

PRINCIPAL’S MESSAGE

May 6-10 is CMHA Mental Health week. All students will be participating in age-appropriate lessons on mental health this week. Mental health is a state of well-being, and we all have it. We might have a mental illness, and we might not. Either way, we can all feel well. We can all have good mental health. It is about having a sense of purpose, strong relationships, feeling connected to our communities, knowing who we are, coping with stress and enjoying life. And it’s never too early or too late to get there. But it’s not just about what you do for yourself, by yourself—everyone needs healthy and supportive places to work, live and learn. And remember that as an adult, you need to take care of yourself in order to care for your children. If you or others in your household need help getting through a bad day (maybe you’re worried about losing your job – struggling with addiction – grieving the loss of a loved one – getting over a recent break-up – feeling lonely or isolated – having thoughts of suicide – worried you can’t pay your mortgage or utility bill) the Distress Centre Crisis line has highly trained volunteers and professional staff 24/7 if you need someone to talk to. Your call will be confidential. Reach out.  Call 403-266-HELP (4357)

PROVINCIAL ACHIEVEMENT TESTS 

Provincial Achievement Tests (PATs) for our Grade 6 students begin this week. PATs are administered annually to all Alberta students in grades 6 and 9. These standardized tests reflect the essentials that all Alberta students are expected to achieve, regardless of school choice or location.

PATs help:

  • determine if students are learning what they are expected to learn
  • report to Albertans how well students have achieved provincial standards at given points in their schooling
  • assist schools, authorities and the province in monitoring and improving student learning

The tests occur in May for English language arts writing, and in June for reading, math, science and social studies.

In 2018, CBE Highlights included:

  • The percentage of students reaching the acceptable standard is at a 5-year high in English Language Arts 6, Français 6, Science 6, Social Studies 6 and Science 9
  • Grade 6 math results improved with students performing significantly better on non-calculator questions in 2018 than in 2017
  • Performance on Grade 6 math problem solving questions improved from the previous year. There is a strong correlation of results on non-calculator questions and problem solving questions

PRINCIPAL’S MESSAGE

Their roles are incredibly diverse — and often, our front office staff regularly go above and beyond their regular duties. (Ask Kerri about dumpster-diving to retrieve a lost agenda!)Administrative professionals provide real benefits to the many people they support and the school at large, and their work doesn’t go unnoticed. It's the administrative professional who is at the front lines of school communication -- answering the phones, greeting visitors, welcoming new families, and scheduling appointments. It's the administrative professional who is the keeper of school records, scheduler of appointments, and dispenser of sage advice regarding fees, bussing, registration and a myriad of other topics. The administrative professional who is usually first to deal with sick or injured children. It's the administrative professional who is running last minute copies for teachers, providing a replacement for a lost fieldtrip form, ordering supplies, and keeping budgets balanced. They are always there with a tissue when a child's feelings are hurt, a calm voice when parents are upset, and a sympathetic ear when teachers are stressed. Anyone who works in a school knows it: The administrative professional is the one who keeps things running smoothly. Maybe that's why principals and teachers alike are so eager to recognize the school's office staff each year during the last week of April. We are very fortunate to have an outstanding office staff that always puts children first as we work together to ensure success for all. Please help us in celebrating Ms. Plewis & Ms. Balderston this week, and letting them know how very much they are appreciated.

PRINCIPAL’S MESSAGE

We had a fantastic Spring Performance, showcasing student work with our  Artists in Residence,  Evergreen Theatre.  I am so proud of our students during performances such as these! Among other things, opportunities for presentations and performances such as these build responsible risk-taking in students, enhance self-confidence, and require teamwork. Performing choreographed scripts with actions and lines to memorize in front of an audience can bring fear and anxiety. Doing so, teaches kids how to take risks and deal with fear, which will help them become successful and reach their potential. Performance opportunities also build self-confidence: With encouragement from teachers and parents, students performing, can build pride and confidence by showcasing new skills. Performing with a large group also requires teamwork so students learn how to work together and build camaraderie. Additionally, all performances were based on specific Science Learning Outcomes  from the Alberta Program of Studies, so this is not just a fun ‘extra’—this is part of our student’s core learning. Thank you Evergreen for helping us have so much fun learning cool Science concepts!

PRINCIPAL’S MESSAGE

This week the hot topic once again is sleep hygiene. We have had numerous students arriving late due to sleeping in, and severalfalling sound asleep in the office this week! Students who are not getting enough sleep don’t feel well, and can have trouble managing their social-emotional regulation. At this time of year, after a holiday break and now that the sun is up later in the evening and bed-time routines get disrupted. We still have 3 solid months of school left, and the learning does not stop. If their bedroom is too light, consider covering the window with tinfoil or a black bedsheet or tablecloth, to create a dark environment, which naturally produces melatonin in the brain to help us feel sleepy. Please ensure your child gets a good night’s sleep and arrives to school on time. Doctors recommend school age children should be getting 10-12 hours of sleep each night.
