Principal's Message

Sept. 17-21, 2018

Dear Parents of Maple Ridge School,
I love the weather. I’d actually love to be a TV weatherman, even if it was just for a day.
As School Council met last night a parent looked out the window and said, “It’s snowing!” A collective groan went through the room. Inside, I felt like a young child, I just wanted to run outside and watch. I don’t want the snow any earlier then the next person but I love watching the flakes in the streetlights, the feel of a melting snowflake on your hand or even the sound of the snow crunching beneath your feet.
In Calgary, it often feels like the weather is simply unpredictable. The smoke is thick. The hail is the size of golf balls. Snowtembers. Is that a tulip in late February? Shorts on Winter Break. Droughts. Floods. Simply put, weather creates community, conversation, wonder, curiosity and emotion. I realized that what excites me about the weather is what excites me about learning. The best moments in learning are simply unpredictable; however, when those moments come, our brains light up. We want to share, talk, question, experience and feel.
As teachers, we aim to create learning experiences that are as real as the snow but as unpredictable as the wind. These are the moments that engage students and spark the joy of learning. Parents can do this at home as well. As a family, read, do, watch, listen to something new this weekend. Embedded within that experience is the unpredictable. Wait for it. When it comes, it will capture the learning of all of you like snow in September (but hopefully in a good way).
Sincerely, Brad Emery
