Success at the National Sport School

As Semester Two starts the National Sport School community should celebrate the many athletic successes.  Remember to check out our Athletic Accomplishments.  We are proud that so many of our student-athletes are able to attend high-level competitions like the Youth Olympic Games, X Games, national and provincial level competitions. December and January were very successful months for many.

This is the year that we commemorate our 25th year​  as an institution that honours the “Culture of Excellence.”  WinSport has generously offered to host an evening of celebration; details to be announced soon.

With Semester Two, brings preparation for graduation. Ms. Kris Biegler and other staff members will be organizing upcoming student meetings that will begin planning this annual event that will be held on Friday, June 26th.  Please follow our weekly TA bulletin for updates and significant dates.   This is another tradition that that  salutes our graduating class of 2020.

As the Calgary Board of Education finishes the final stages of the Engagement process with final online survey, we encourage parents and students to reach out to us if they have questions.  The staff at NSS will try to assist where we can.  

Finally, I am taking this opportunity to remind everyone that even though the future of NSS is clouded with ambiguity that it is imperative to remain focused on your studies and your sport.  That is where you will find "success" each day; many students have expressed to me that this is difficult but I know with parental and staff support that is accomplishable.

Respectfully,

Rob Jewan, Principal(Acting)

Welcome

Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year! It has been a busy start up but everyone has managed to successfully navigate student course changes, Camp Chief Hector sign up, our first parent evening, and recent staff changes.  The staff and students of the National Sport School are embracing our “Culture of Excellence” by being adaptable and mature during this first week. This is a great tone to start a new year at our school.

 We will be making the trip to Camp Chief Hector this Thursday and Friday; it is there that students build lasting friendships and memories.  We appreciate that families and coaches allow their athletes to attend this amazing experience. It truly is an invaluable start to every school year.

 This year the National Sport School wants to continue to build strong communication within our community. As a principal, I encourage you to use the tools the Calgary Board of Education provides to assist everyone.  Our school uses email, Desire to Learn, PowerSchool, Teacher Advisor program, interviews, Meet the Teacher, a wonderful front desk team and much more to enhance information sharing between the student, teacher and parent.  I hope that you can find an avenue that will develop a positive responsive relationship within our organization. To kick start this positive connection, I encourage every parent or guardian to attend our annual Meet the Teacher evening on Wednesday, September 18th at 7 pm.

 Finally, stay tuned for more information about the ways we are going to celebrate our 25th anniversary.  It is a significant milestone that should not go unrecognized.

 Mr. Rob Jewan, Acting Principal
