Caring for Our Community Holiday Workshop

Hello QES Families,

We have become well known in this community for helping to take great care of our families who require a little more support at this time of year. I am a little later in the season getting things organized but we are going ahead with our Holiday Workshop and we hope we can count on the families at QES for donations of toys and gifts for children age 0-12. This year we are providing older siblings and parents with $25 gift [...]

    Principal's Message

    Fee Waivers & Fun Lunch

    ​Greetings QES Families,
    I want to take this time to remind or inform all families that if you can’t afford to pay your fees, the Calgary Board of Education offers a fee waiver based on your income level.  You must apply annually so if you require this support please make sure you begin the process as soon as possible. The information is available through this link.
    If you require support accessing this information or completing the forms please contact the office to set up an appointment. We are happy to assist you with this process.
    If you require financial support with field trips and student fun lunches and you have not yet applied for a CBE Waiver please contact me ASAP so that we can ensure your child has access to all  activities and school events. No child will be denied access to any school event due to financial challenges.
    Healthy Hunger/ Fun Lunches- Now that we have gone to an on- line system to place food orders we need to change the process for placing orders for students with Waivers or who require some financial support. Please contact Michele Downs  in the office or me  and we will  place the order on line for your child. This information is kept confidential. We will not supply the names to anyone outside the school office. This process makes sure your child can participate. The first fun lunch order must be placed by Tuesday so please call us today or Tuesday morning. With your permission we can also have your child come down to the office to tell us their order.
    Winter Gear/Clothing-The Queen Elizabeth School community is a very kind and caring school community. I have already had many parents approach me to ask if there are any students who need help to get things like winter coats, boots, hats or mitts or backpacks. If you require some support please send me note or drop in to see me. Let's have a coffee together and figure out ways we can link you to supports or help to get some basic things for your child and family.
    I feel so very fortunate to have this position as a School Principal to not only support students in the learning environment but to also support students and families with accessing extra supports that are available within the community. Did you know the City of Calgary has a Fair Entry Program that provides families who qualify, with support to access recreation opportunities, public transit fees and much more? Here is a link.
    If you are a parent who works in an area that also offers supports to families please send me your information or drop in to see me. Calgary offers so many different  opportunities and I am working to learn more in order to support our parent community.
    Happy Thanksgiving weekend.
    Andrea Cartwright, Principal​
