Principal's Message

Summer | Sommer 2019

​Parents & Guardians:
Bowcroft is not a typical elementary school.  It is an exceptional one.
We provide outstanding learning opportunities for students, have amazing parents (Thank You BPAC!), and the best teaching and support staff in Calgary. 
Our wrap-around approach to supporting kids and commitment to academic success is a key reason we have grown by nearly 100 students in the last three years. 
To continue on our positive trajectory we have been busy staffing the school for September.  As with most Calgary Board of Education schools, there will be several changes for the 2019-2020 school year.  Please rest assured there will continue to be outstanding teachers and support staff at Bowcroft in September. Please see below for details:
Staffing Updates

Frau Bosch is retiring from the Calgary Board of Education.  Frau Bosch started the German Bilingual program at Bowcroft and will be greatly missed.  She has instilled her love of German language and culture to many hundreds of children, and helped to promote the success of our school.  She has also been greatly valued as a colleague and friend by our entire staff.  Frau Bosch is now looking forward to being a full-time grandparent.  Alles Gute!

Herr Ludwigsen is transitioning to the role of Assistant Principal at Children’s Village School.  This promotion is an excellent next step for Herr Ludwigsen, and one which will see him provide leadership on behalf of some of the most complex learners in the Calgary Board of Education.  I have no doubt the staff of Children's Village, and their students, will benefit from his skills and commitment to constant improvement.  Please join me in wishing him all the best for the future. Tschüss und Viel Glück!

Frau McCashin will be re-joining the German Bilingual program with the responsibility of teaching a grade 1 classroom.  Frau McCashin previously taught in both the Community and German Bilingual program before taking a leave to be a full-time mom to her two children.  Much loved by students, she is now returning to Bowcroft.  We look forward to welcoming her back to our school.
Frau Ruhrmann will become our second German Bilingual Kindergarten teacher, and will work alongside Frau Visscher.  Known to her Community grade 5/6 students as ‘Ms. R’, Frau Ruhrmann’s excellent language and teaching skills make her an ideal classroom teacher for our youngest German Bilingual students. 
 During the summer months I will be making additional hires to our staff, which will be shared with our community in a Welcome Back newsletter; this will be emailed to families during the last week of August.
 Thank you again for your support of our school, its wonderful students, and caring staff.  Best wishes to you and your families for a safe and enjoyable summer.  We look forward to seeing you again in September!
Rudy J. Stein
