Dates to Remember


Principal's Message

December 2019

​Parents & Guardians:
December is bringing both some typical winter weather and the warmth of the holiday season.  Please ensure your child comes to school with warm winter clothing, including a hat, mitts/gloves, and warm boots.   Rest assured that if they are missing needed items, we have lots of warm clothing available in the Bistro.
Student conferences were held on November 21 & 22.  They provided the opportunity to meet with teachers and have meaningful conversations about your child’s learning.  I am pleased that we saw more than 80% of our families during conferences!  If you were unable to connect with a teacher during one of these dates please let us know and we will arrange for a meeting or phone call.
We continue to collect donations for the Calgary Food Bank.  Non-perishable items may be brought to the school throughout the month of December.  
Please join us for our Weihnachtskonzert on Tuesday, December 10 (German Bilingual Program) and Winter Celebration on Wednesday, December 11 (Community Program).  Both events begin at 7 pm.  Please refer to the postcard invitation sent home with your child for details.  Families are also encouraged to bring a donation to the food bank to these events.
Kindergarten students will be visiting Calgary Read’s Children’s Reading Place on Friday, December 13.  We are excited to be taking Calgary Transit bus route 1 to get there and back!
The last week of school brings back-to-back field trips for our classes.  Grade 1-6 students will be visiting Alberta Theatre Projects to view a performance of The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe on Wednesday, December 18. 
Thursday, December 19 is the last day of school and our annual Activity Day at Shane Homes YMCA in Rocky Ridge.
Thank you to Bowcroft Parent Action Club (BPAC) for their financial support of these trips.  As such, there is no cost to families.  If you would like to volunteer for a field trip and are cleared as a volunteer with CBE, please contact your child’s teacher.
Following Winter Break, classes will resume on Monday, January 6.  In the New Year, all students will be participating in a hoop dancing residency with renowned dancer Teddy Anderson.  This will occur the week of January 13, 2020.
I wish you family all the best of the season!  We hope you have a Merry Christmas, a Happy Holiday and a safe and healthy New Year.
Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions, concerns or comments.  I may be reached at or 403.777.6020 extension 2123.​
Rudy J. Stein
