Principal's Message

Principal's Year-End Message

​It is hard to believe another exciting year has come to an end at Valley Creek. It is a time to look back as well as forward. Our students experienced many great learning opportunities and growth throughout this year. Students took trips to both eastern and western Canada, exciting trips within Alberta and throughout the city. Guest speakers were invited into the classrooms to share expertise and experiences. And of course, the phenomenal displays of talent from our own students; numerous band and choir concerts, a school production which showcased the Fine and Performing Arts, and numerous displays of athletic excellence in all our sports clubs and teams. Valley Creek certainly proved to be the best school in Calgary yet again.
 
Looking forward to the 2019 – 2020 school year, Valley Creek is currently projected at 685 students which is a significant drop from this current year. Given the decrease in enrollment and predicted decreased financial support for schools at this point, school processes, opportunities and daily experiences for the VC school community will look different next year. School based decisions have been made to prioritize learning in the core curriculum as best we can given the current budget constraints. We are down 3.5 teachers as well as one less Educational Assistant. Students will have less variety in options as well as reduced physical education time for division 2 students for half the year. Our resource teacher, Assistant Principal and Principal will all be teaching at some point as well.
 
Given the increased demands on staff, decreased preparation time and remaining uncertainty of both education funding and working conditions for next year, it is uncertain how much teachers will be able to take on. The impact of these factors in unknown, but they could impact field trips, clubs and extra-curricular activities.
 
Thank you to our community for all your support this year. We appreciate all the trip volunteers, guest speakers and volunteer coaches  who have come in to support learning at Valley Creek. The donations of food at interviews and end of the year goes a long way. The numerous teacher gifts are wonderful signs of the generosity of this community and are truly appreciated. Finally, thank you for sending us your fabulous  children.
 
From the entire staff of Valley Creek School, we wish you a restful and joyful summer break. Be sure to visit the website for Back to School Information http://school.cbe.ab.ca/school/valleycreek/registration/register/back-to-school/pages/default.aspx
