Principal's Message

Teenagers

Greetings Dr. George Stanley Parents:
Yes, take a deep breath. The teenagers are coming in droves and they’re calling Cranston home! As one of Calgary’s youngest and largest communities, Cranston has a unique demographic makeup. Dr. George Stanley School is the first CBE school in the community of Cranston to house a junior high/ teenage population. What’s more, a new High School is underway in Seton to accommodate the surge in the teenage population. Understanding that teenagers think and act differently as a group is not exactly new science, but as a society we are coming to understand and appreciate these realities. Those of you who joined us for School Council in November heard from David Small, a CBE psychologist who explained how teen brains have not fully developed centres for impulse control, empathy and have over active emotional and reward centres. And, as parents who attended School Council that evening suggested, we’ll all have to take a deep breath and recognize this social and scientific reality!

Adolescence is all about growth and learning. And for growth and learning to happen- mistakes will occur. Instead of viewing these mistakes as avoidable, we can see them as inevitable opportunities for growth. We will never ignore poor choices and do everything we can to provide strategies to support your child and other children to grow from these inevitable mistakes that happen to everyone, on different levels, during adolescence. Having worked in a number of communities, we are deeply proud of our student population. We also know that the teenagers are here and more are coming! The best thing we can all do as a community is to appreciate and support students during this inevitable period of development. If parents and educators work together, we can make sure our highly capable students are supported through age appropriate consequences, strategies and understanding.
Ms. Numan
