Principal's Message

Principal's Message

​October 1, 2018
Dear Parents,
We would like to start by introducing ourselves.  I am Cheryl Whittaker and am assuming the position of Acting Principal at Nose Creek School while Mrs. Shellenberg is on leave.  I had an opportunity to get to know the students, staff and community last year while assuming the acting principal position when Mrs. Shellenberg was away on the Japan school trip. It is a privilege to be back at Nose Creek School to work with such incredible students, wonderful dedicated staff, and supportive families that are part of the school’s learning community.
 
I am Rod Bauer, the new Assistant Principal at Nose Creek School. As September has come and gone I have been able to meet and talk to numerous student and parents alike. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed the last month and look forward to working with everyone as the year processes.
 
Our school year commenced September 4, when we welcomed our returning students and our incoming grade four students. During welcome week all students participated in the daily theme activities. There are currently approximately 930 students grades 4-9 at Nose Creek School.
 
September also held a number of events including our Welcome Back Breakfast, Meet the Teacher, Monster Truck, senior volleyball tournament, Escape Room, band clinic, Healthy Hunger Lunch, sponsored by school council FANS, and Run for the Cure.  Run for the Cure offered a weeklong list of activities and the school raised over $14,000 for breast cancer research. This year Nose Creek School was recognized for raising the most money by a school in Calgary. Soccer, cross-country and volleyball have also been occurring this month.
 
During the year we will be holding fire drills and practice lock downs.  When we conduct these drills we reinforce behaviours that will assist us should we need to use them in a real emergency.  Our staff members are well trained and will respond appropriately to situations that may arise.  During September we held our first fire drill.
 
Office hours are Monday thru Thursday 8:00 to 3:30 and Fridays 8:00 to 1:00.  If you need to contact a staff member outside of these hours please leave a message on the main office line or on the staff member’s direct line. If your child needs to be contacted during instructional times please call the main office and a message will be relayed to your child.  Please refrain from calling or texting your child directly during instructional hours.
 
Should you have questions about the educational program for your child please talk with your child’s homeroom teacher, grade level learning leader, Ms. Tudin (Resource Teacher), Mr. Rod Bauer (Assistant Principal), or Cheryl Whittaker (Acting Principal).  We will be pleased to answer your questions.  All grade level teachers and learning leaders’ names are located on the Nose Creek School website. Each teacher also has their own blog to provide information of current program of studies and upcoming events.
 
We have had the great pleasure of meeting with school council.  If any parents or guardians would like to be part of Nose Creek’s School Council we meet the third Tuesday of every month at 6:30 pm in the school’s learning commons.  Nose Creek
has a dynamic group of people that work together to promote excellence in education at our school.  We discuss the “happenings” at the school, review goals and directions established in the School Renewal and Development Plan, and participate in conversation about programs and activities for our students.  This group is vital to the school community.  Their hard work and efforts allow for many of the events and programs at the school to take place. When our parents (and other interested folks) volunteer, funds are raised to enhance the educational program at the school.  Nose Creek staff very much appreciates the efforts of volunteers to assist in the education of our students. 
 
Volunteers are vital to our school and the school is always looking for more.  There are a variety of capacities where volunteers are required: fieldtrips, projects/special assignments in classrooms, assisting in classrooms with miscellaneous needs, reshelving books in our library, creating displays, to name a few. In order to volunteer at Nose Creek School you need to have a current police clearance with the Calgary Board of Education and have filled out a Volunteer Registration form.  If you have already had a police check done, they are good for 5 years. Please check with the main office to ensure this paperwork is current. We welcome volunteers and appreciate their hard work.
 
A few reminders for upcoming events. 
Picture day is tomorrow Tuesday, October 2nd. 
Escape Room Showcase is October 4th.
There will also be no school Monday, October 8th for Thanksgiving.
Riverwatch field study for grade 8 students is on Thursday, October 11th.
School council meets on October 16, at 6:30.
Our first round of vaccinations is Wednesday, October 17th.

Camp Horizon grade nine trip will be on Thursday, October 25th.
Our second system non-instructional day will occur on Friday, October 26th.

We would like to take this opportunity to express our gratitude and honour in being able to work with your student and yourselves as Assistant Principal and Acting Principal at Nose Creek School.
