School Council October News

Spirit Days At Hidden Valley School we build community spirit by celebrating all of the amazing students and teachers that make our school such a great place to learn and grow. On Spirit Days, students are encouraged to dress up in the special theme of the day or wear their school shirts (or alternately a blue shirt) as a show of school spirit.

Principal's Message

September Has Come and Gone

September has come and gone and what a whirlwind it was. Between meeting new friends, rekindling old relationships, getting to know new teachers, participating in the Terry Fox Run and learning the new routines, the students had a very eventful and busy month of learning here at Hidden Valley School. Towards the end of the month, the school hosted the Parent Teacher Conferences giving parents the opportunity to meet their child’s teacher face to face. During the meeting, all parents were able to share their thoughts, goals and aspirations for their child for this school year. I hope you enjoyed your interview time with your child’s teacher and I thank you for supporting your child’s learning by participating in this worthwhile start up conference. Know that if you have questions in the future you do not have to wait till conferences. You can connect with your teacher through the agenda or call the school to talk with the teacher or the office.
Every year many parents support our school through various groups, activities, trips and events. School Council and our Fundraising Society are two important ways parents can stay aware and participate in some of the decision making for the school and the students. Parents have already begun to support our school through our Monthly council meetings, our Traffic blitzes in front of the school, signing up to do home reading program and last, but not least, taking care of our teachers by providing food for interview evenings through the Teacher Care program. Thank you to all the parents who provided delicious hot dishes, salads, sides, condiments and desserts. The staff really appreciated this wonderful meal that day, as we started early in the morning and did not end until after 8:30pm. Please note that due to budget cuts, restructuring and changes in practice, the Calgary Reads program is no longer working in the schools this year so we will not be looking for volunteers for the program moving forward.
Did you know- the advantages to reading to your child! Let’s look at how “reading aloud makes adults and children smarter, happier, healthier, more successful and more closely attached, even as technology pulls in the other direction.
A miraculous alchemy occurs when one person reads to another, transforming the simple stuff of a book, a voice, and a bit of time into complex and powerful fuel for the heart, brain, and imagination. Grounded in the latest neuroscience and behavioral research, and drawing widely from literature, The Enchanted Hour explains the dazzling cognitive and social-emotional benefits that await children, whatever their class, nationality or family background. But it’s not just about bedtime stories for little kids: Reading aloud consoles, uplifts and invigorates at every age, deepening the intellectual lives and emotional well-being of teenagers and adults, too.
