Principal's Message

Welcome Back Message

                                            
 Welcome back to North Haven School! I hope that each of you enjoyed a relaxing summer and is eager to start a new year of learning!  As a staff we are excited for the start of a new year and all the opportunities for our students! As a staff we are focused on creating engaging, personalized  learning experiences for each student within a safe and caring environment.
 
One of the important tasks teachers collaborated on before our school year began was planning in teams to create a big ideaaround which learning will be built.  This year we were fortunate to start our year at Blackfoot Crossing Historical Park, where our teaching staff was given the opportunity to tour and deepen our understanding around indigenous ways of knowing and learning through conversation with elder Bryan Little Chief. One of the common threads to emerge in all team planning was the idea ofstewardship, including how we as engaged citizens can make a difference. This idea will be taken up in different ways amongst our grade teams and we look forward to being able to share our learning in multiple ways throughout the year. 
 
The first few days back ran smoothly with all students connecting with teachers and friends. Our ‘Welcome Back’ assembly on the first day was a great opportunity to develop our sense of community and welcome new staff and students. The smiles on the faces of our students in classes this first week was the result of many hours of preparation on the part of both staff and parents. With continuing changes to our physical spaces over the summer it is because of our sense of community that this year has gotten off to such a great start!
 
Communication continues to be a priority for us. Please take a few moments to subscribe to the CBE’s new messaging system, “School Messenger” using the link: http://www.cbe.ab.ca/subscribeIn addition to this form of communication teachers will once again utilize blogs to communicate learning intentions and share important classroom information.
 
As a new year of learning begins we look forward to working in partnership with parents to ensure student success. Your role is critical in supporting your child’s academic achievement, citizenship and social/emotional development. I look forward to connecting with each of you at our upcoming ‘Welcome Back Event’ and ‘Curriculum Evening’ on September 13thstarting at 4:30 pm. This will also be a great opportunity for parents to connect with others in our learning community and learn more about the programming within each grade team. 
 
 
Sincerely,
 
Kevin Howell
Principal

Traffic Safety
We encourage parents and guardians to choose safety over convenience when dropping off and picking up students from our school. Set a good example for your children by crossing at the marked crosswalks and obeying all traffic laws.
Parents are also reminded that there is NO PARKING available in the Staff Parking Lot. Please do not use it to pick up, drop off or turn around. Students can be dropped off on North Haven Drive north of the bus zone or on the other streets that surround our school. 
 
Communication
Communication is critical to the partnership between parents and teachers in the education of students. North Haven School provides a number of ways to increase the opportunity for open communication.
School Information will be sent via electronic message whenever possible and posted on our website located at: http://school.cbe.ab.ca/school/NorthHaven/Pages/default.aspx
Please ensure that the school has your most current contact information on file.
Please ensure you continue to receive notices from North Haven by subscribing and opting in for messages. Please follow the link below and subscribe!

Email Communication
Teachers value the insight they receive from parent messages and will reply to email and phone messages before and after school in as timely a manner as possible. During class time they are asked to be focused on teaching and learning in the classroom. Evening and weekend messages will be answered the next teaching day.
 
Safety & Security
Visitors to the School
During the school day, all exterior doors, except for the main entrance, are locked while students are in classes. All visitors are required to report to the school office, sign in and wear a nametag to identify themselves. If you are taking your child from school during the day, please come to the school office. We will call your child so that you may sign them out. Teachers will not release students from the classroom unless notified by the office.
 
Attendance and Lates
In order to ensure that all children arrive at school safely, parents are asked to inform the main office whenever their child will be late or absent. Please call our attendance line or send a note in advance, in the case of an appointment or family holidays. If we have not heard from you, our office staff will attempt to contact you at home or at work. All students who arrive late will be required to enter through the main doors, and report to the office for a late slip before proceeding to class.
Dismissal
Please arrange to meet your children outside at a designated location or near their entrance doors at dismissal times. All students are expected to use the assigned doors to enter and exit the building.
