Principal's Message

Accountability Pillar

Dear parents and guardians,
Although we are already halfway through the month of January, I believe it is still okay to wish everyone a Happy New Year. It has been wonderful coming back to school, hearing all the great stories from the children about their winter break. While we are going through a deep freeze outside, staff and students are warm and cozy inside participating in many excellent teaching opportunities. However, we know that the students and staff will be thrilled when the temperature warms up and we can resume our outdoor activities during recess and the noon hour.
We had a very successful Kindergarten Information/Open House evening. Thank you to those of you who attended. Registration begins on Monday, January 20 within CBE. Please read more about our school registration on the Week at a Glance for January 20 – 24.
Thank you to school council under the leadership of Heather Stubbs and Jaclyn St. Louis, for organizing Paul Davis for our division two students along with our parent community. He was inspirational and empowering as he spoke on the topic of social networking and online safety. Please join us at our next school council meeting on Wednesday, January 29th to hear more about upcoming fundraisers and school initiatives.
At the end of this month, all children will be bringing home their report cards. Report cards are used to communicate student achievement against report card stems using achievement indicators of 1, 2, 3, and 4. In each subject area, the CBE report card stems represent a synthesis of the Alberta Program of Studies - the front matter, general learner outcomes and specific learner outcomes. Report card comments give the student and family a picture of what the student knows focusing on areas for growth, and next steps in learning.
As an annual check-up on the education system, the Accountability Pillar provides an opportunity for Alberta Education and school authorities to ensure that we are equipping students for success. The Accountability Pillar uses a set of 16 indicators. Data on these indicators consists of surveys of students, parents and teachers on various aspects of education quality, student outcomes such as dropout and high school completion rates, and provincial assessments of student learning.
From January to the end of February, Alberta Education will be conducting the annual Accountability Pillar Survey. 
In January, parents of students in Grades 4 along with parents of students in Grades 7 and 10 will receive a survey from Alberta Education.  At Alexander Ferguson School, students in Grades 5 and 6 will also participate due to the small school designation.
In January/February, students in Grades 4, 5, 6 in our school along with students in Grades 7, 10, and all teachers will be completing their surveys online at school. 
All surveys are anonymous and ask questions about experiences within our school. Your participation in the survey helps provide important information on the quality of education your child is receiving, so we encourage you to return your survey promptly. Thank you to all the volunteers who work tirelessly for our school community in so many different ways. We love having you read to our students, organize Fun Lunches, volunteer for Tasty Tuesday, help with off campus and on campus field trips, assist teachers and students in their classrooms, and so much more! If you would like to be a CBE volunteer, please contact Kelly in our office. It is very rewarding!
With thanks,
Sherry Goldenberg Acting Principal
