Principal's Message

October 2017

Parents & Guardians:
September seems to has come and gone in the blink of an eye! When I visit classrooms and speak with teachers, students have had a positive first month of school and are settling into the routines that a new year brings. At our ROARS Opening Assembly on September 15, we talked about the importance of Respect, Ownership, Attitude, Responsibility and Safety. Our staff reinforces these expectations on a daily basis and they are becoming more positively embedded in our school culture. Please ask your child(ren) what ROARS means to them!
October has brought some staffing changes. Thank you to Herr Ludwigsen, who did an outstanding job as our Acting Assistant Principal during the month of September. He was kept very busy with his new duties in the office, which were on top of his teaching assignment. I am very appreciative of his support. Herr Ludwigsen has now returned to his classroom on a full-time basis. This week we welcomed Ms. Tani Collie to Bowcroft as our new Assistant Principal. Ms. Collie has taught many grades and subjects during her career, and is especially passionate about math and physical education. A particular strength is her ability to work with teachers to plan for learning. She was previously a Learning Leader at Rideau Park School and will be taking on a part-time teaching assignment to provide leadership to both students and teachers.
As part of the ATA Classroom Improvement Fund, Bowcroft was able to apply to receive funding for an additional half-time teacher. Our application was successful and Ms. Bonham is taking on the additional teaching assignment. This means she will maintain her morning Kindergarten class, and will team teach with a variety of teachers in the afternoon. She may also take over a class for a short period of time so that another teacher is free to observe the practice of others or plan with a colleague.
With our increase in enrollment this year we have more students attending our noon supervision program. If your child(ren) are staying at school to eat their lunch, please ensure they are registered.. This is required so that we can staff appropriately and have accurate attendance lists. Please use My CBE Account to register. We will be hiring an additional Lunch Supervisor this fall to provide even better service to children at lunchtime.
Good communication with teachers is essential for the success of each child. Please check your child’s agenda for important messages, and keep the school informed of any changes to regular routines. We will endeavour to keep you informed of events important for your family. This includes important emails sent with the School Messenger system. If you have not done so already, please consider subscribing to receive commercial messages, including information about fees, field trips and fundraising opportunities. You may subscribe through the link on our website​.
I wish your family all the best for the Thanksgiving long weekend. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions, concerns or comments. I may be reached at rjstein@cbe.ab.ca or 403.777.6020 extension 2123.
Sincerely
Rudy Stein
