All Kindergarten and Grade 1 - 3 students currently attending Tuscany School that [...]

    Principal's Message

    April 2018

    We want to thank the generous parents who provided such a delicious meal for the staff during Student Led Conferences. We always feel so grateful for the chance to stop, take a break, and come together for such incredible food before going back into the work again for the evening. You are all so much a part of our family and we are so thankful for your caring and kindness.
    As many of you know April is a very busy time for the Administration organizing for next year. Those of you who are new to Calgary Board of Education and the process of organizing each year will benefit from a timeline. I will do my best to answer as many organizational details over the next few months as they happen so please stay tuned as well as attend School Council meetings for the most up to date information. (April 12, May 10 and June 14th, all at 6:30 pm).
    The provincial budget has been shared and decisions around allocation of funds to all school boards are going to happen in April. Once that happens, dollars are assigned to each school for our organizing of staffing and operating costs. To see more details of the budget please feel free to visit www.cbe.ab.ca.
    Our school has been projected to have 340 students from Kindergarten to grade 4. Presently we have 372. It is critical for us to staff for the number that most accurately describes our population to prevent surplussing positions in September. We approach these decisions very conservatively in order to have the right number of people on staff supporting our students throughout the year. We want to thank everyone who has returned their enrollment surveys to the school to help us have the most accurate number of students for the fall start up.
    We are saying farewell to 80 grade 4 students at the end of June. Presently we have 73 registrations for Kindergarten. Due to new schools opening for the fall there will be many opportunities for teachers to apply for positions. As last year showed us, when there is opportunity for movement within the Calgary Board of Education change benefits all.
    I know many are asking about school hours for next year. We do not anticipate a change in hours for the 2018-2019 school year. We will start at 8:30 in the morning and end at 2:55 each day, Monday through Thursday. We will continue with our Early Dismissal Fridays schedule from 8:30-12:40. Kindergarten hours will be 8:30AM – 11:16AM and 12:09M – 2:55PM.
    I do not have more information to share at this point in time but will have more as we move forward. Right now we have a small portion of the Tuscany Ridge that remains outside of our walk zone and the children are eligible for transportation. This attaches us to Twelve Mile Coulee School as we will be sharing buses. There are processes in place for this and we need to work together to have it all make sense for students. I am confident we will all come to a decision very soon.
    Thank you to all who came out to Student Led Conferences in March. The children were so excited to have their parents come to school and share in the enthusiasm of their learning.
    The Tuscany Community Coalition is presenting an Educational Evening for parents “Let’s Talk Cannabis” on May 1st at 6:30 PM. This event will be hosted at Twelve Mile Coulee School so please look for the flyer within the newsletter and come out to join us. Our parents may have questions about how to have conversations with your children about the topic and Alberta Health Services is offering some guidance around these conversations. Please come out and join us for this valuable conversation.
    We are running our Gala a little differently this year. Tuscany School was selected as the Arbour Day Tree school for 2018. This celebration occurs on the first Thursday in May each year. The staff chose to merge the Arbour Day celebration and the Gala together to celebration the work they have been doing all year in their inquiries. In doing this we can only open the Gala viewing times for families during the mornings of May 3rd and 4th. This will allow the Gala to continue in the way it has run in the past and allow the Arbour Day celebration to occur in the afternoon. While we would love to have our families attend the Arbour Day celebration we cannot. This is due to the capacity of our gymnasium. During our Arbour Day celebration Twelve Mile Coulee, Eric Harvie and St. Basil Schools will be coming over with students to participate in the ceremony by sharing music and poetry. We will have invited guests from various departments throughout the city and province attending. So our space will very limited and we must remain within the capacity guidelines. We will still be able to provide times for viewing the incredible work by our students each morning and I am sure you will enjoy the Gala.
    During the afternoon of May 3rd there will be tree planting at the front of the building so please be prepared for city parking restrictions and road signs up restricting access to the side and front of the school until the tree is planted and the heavy equipment is removed. We are having additional trees planted throughout the remaining months of spring and early summer around the playground as well as the completion of Regenerate’s phase 2 and 3 plans to capture water and use it for natural plants found in the coulee and surrounding areas. This will advance our naturalization plan beautifully.
    Our next 4 murals in the series being done by the students and Ryan Jason Allen Willert will be started in April when we return to school. We are very excited to have additional panels to add to our outdoor classroom.
    Brandie Cormier is the artist working with the grade 4 students on the mural on the garage doors. It is a beautiful depiction of seasons and times as the viewer’s eyes travel through the scene. We are so fortunate to have such gifts and talents within our community that we can invite to share with our students.
    We are so excited to begin our work for the final 3 months of school and eagerly look for ways to share our learning with our families.
    Cindy White, Tuscany School Principal, ctwhite@cbe.ab.ca​
