Principal's Message

We Come to O.S. Geiger School to Learn

We come to O. S. Geiger School to learn. And, that learning takes place wherever we are. We learn in our classrooms, the schoolyard, the gymnasium, the learning commons, the hallways, the fine arts rooms, the school bus on a field trip; in fact, we are always learning. As part of our school student purpose statement, we recognize the importance of our learning and the community in which we learn. The job of our school is based in learning.
Over the last years, as a school, we have been immersed in the process of academic inquiry in our learning. We continue to strive towards excellence in performance and have all students reach their potential. We are a dynamic learning community that embraces a diverse group of students targeting success and overall prosperity. Our school is a great place for students to flourish in a maths and literacy rich environment, access current technology to support their learning, and be a part of masterfully crafted lessons  to foster every student meeting their personal best! One area of development that our school has been immersed in is the area of a growth mindset. The staff has embraced the idea that it’s not just our abilities and talents that ultimately create success, but the way we approach our goals will have an impact upon our outcomes. We use the language of  a growth and fixed mindset in this instance. To achieve the greatest outcome, a growth mindset will serve us best to move our learning forward.
At O. S. Geiger School, we are a dedicated staff that continues to learn in many areas of professional growth and development. Through this learning we continue to deepen our understanding and breadth of skill and expertise to continue a rigorous academic program for all  our students. Together, we create a safe and caring environment that allows our students to gain the confidence to embrace challenges in their learning. In keeping with the vision of the Calgary Board of Education, at O. S. Geiger School we work toward the following:
Each student, in keeping with his or her individual abilities and gifts, will complete high school with a foundation of learning necessary to thrive in life, work and continued learning
Each student will be literate and numerate, able to integrate and apply the knowledge, skills, attitudes and competencies acquired across all academic disciplines
Each student be a responsible citizen
Each student will identify and actively develop individual gifts, talents and interests
Each student will demonstrate good character
We share this vision and support our students in their learning. Together, with home and school we have the means to create a clear and deliberate path for student success. To address success, the province of Alberta has established goals of high quality learning opportunities for all, excellence in learner outcomes and highly responsive and responsible jurisdiction.
Proudly, the Calgary Board of Education embraces its vision of being a dynamic learning community of choice. Its values are noted as:
Students come first
Learning is our central purpose
Public education serves the common good.
Together, all stakeholders support learning as a core value. To ensure we have successful learners at O. S. Geiger School, this handbook outlines school practices and organization for learning. After reading these pages, we ask that parents/guardians and students sign the first page of the handbook section to indicate you have read and familiarized yourself with this document.
“Each student, every day, no exceptions.”
Sincerely, V. Murphy, Principal J. Perszon, Assistant Principal
