The Mustard Seed / Warm Feet For The Street

As we enter into December, we continue to ask Highwood students and families to give to those in need. We are doing things a bit differently this year, but are still continuing to support The Mustard Seed with the "Warm Feet for the Street" campaign and The Calgary Food Band with The Mayor's Food Drive. We will be doing a reverse advent calendar! Every day, students will be asked to bring one specific item to donate. With all of the items [...]

    Principal's Message

    May 2019

    ​Can you believe that there are only two months left in this school year?!?  It will be a very busy two months though!  In the month of May we have Celebration of Learning evenings, Alien Inline skating, Vivo Open Minds School, and various fieldtrips.  Thank you to all of the parents who have volunteered to help us out, as we certainly could not be providing these off-site educational experiences without your support.  As a small way to show our appreciation for all that you do, parents and grandparents who have volunteered at Highwood School this school year are invited to attend our Volunteer Tea on Thursday, May 23 at 1:00.  Please email or call the school to RSVP.  It will be a fun afternoon filled with food and student entertainment. 
    May is also the month that we start preparing for the upcoming school year.  It is VERY IMPORTANT that you register for the yellow school bus before May 31 if your child needs to take the bus to go to and from school for the 2019-2020 school year.  Even if you are unsure if your child requires the school bus, I would encourage you to still register for the bus and then cancel your contract at a later time if necessary.  As well, it is around this time that I receive the 2019-2020 school budget and need to make some staffing decisions.  I encourage all parents to complete this short three question survey, as your feedback is always valuable.  https://tinyurl.com/highwoodbudget
    Next time you’re at Highwood School I invite you to check out our School Development Plan bulletin board located next to the school office.  It displays many rich samples of student work that reflect the on-going work that we are doing around student acquisition of subject-specific vocabulary.  I also encourage you to ask your child about the work and strategies they are learning and doing in class that is intentionally focused​ on acquiring subject-specific vocabulary.
    Thanks for all that you do to support your child and the school.  I know that during the past eight months you’ve supported your child with studying, reading in two languages, dictation, and various projects.  Know that you’ve had a big impact on your child’s learning and we are appreciative of the time and effort that you’ve put into helping your child acquire a second language.  It’s hard work!
    Sincerely,
    Christine Cheung
    Principal
