Principal's Message

October 15, 2018 Connect Monday Updates for Families


*PLEASE RESPECT TEACHERS SUPERVISING STUDENTS IN CROSSWALKS*
       1.      EXTENDED TO OCTOBER 19!  ERIC HARVIE SCHOOL SPIRIT WEAR ANNUAL CAMPAIGN
This year’s EHS Spirit Wear Campaign has kicked off and will run through to October 15/18.  This is an excellent way to build school and community spirit JJ
        2.   ​SOUND KREATIONS CELEBRATION/STUDENT LED LEARNING WALK OCTOBER 18/18
Our Autumn Student Led Learning Walk will be held this Thursday, October 18, 2018. Please see schedule for when your child(ren) will be performing as part of the celebration of learning in our SLLW around Physical Literacy.
Sound Kreations focus: Beat Street (K-12)
We’ve combined Hip‐Hop, Stomp and Dub‐Step (Animation) dance styles to create an Urban dance experience that will have your whole school buzzing.
We explore the groove of Hip‐Hop, the sounds of Stomp and the electronic influences of Dub‐ Step!
Students will learn to balance the flow of robotic dance moves with the powerful precision of steppin’, while also building upon foundational hip-hop styles.
We’ll look at the influences London, LA and West Africa have had on these modern dance styles and learn to integrate the original steps of dance with the new expressions we’ve all come to love!
This voyage of kinesthetic expression is highly interactive, entirely approachable, and fun, fun, FUN!
       3.  FEED THE ERIC HARVIE BOOK WORM! USED BOOK DRIVE J
Please see notice – we are accepting used books for our Learning Commons from October 9 – 19th!  Check the notice to see the ways families can help build our book collection JJ
       4.  LEADERSHIP CLUBS – PEACE AMBASSADORS & ECO TEAM
Our two primary leadership club opportunities have launched – our Peace Ambassadors and ECO Team clubs are open to students in Grade 4. We believe it is very important our Grade 4 students take advantage of these leadership options before they head off to middle school where leadership opportunities tend to happen later in their school careers. If you have not discussed participation in these clubs with your child, we encourage you to do so – there are some excellent community leadership opportunities coming up within both of these clubs and we look forward to championing the students excellent work this school year JJ
        5. GLENBOW RANCH WHOLE SCHOOL FIELD TRIP AUTUMN 2018
       We will be embarking on our whole school annual autumn field trip to Glenbow Ranch Provincial Park, just east of Cochrane – which is an Eric Harvie philanthropic legacy project. We will be going to Glenbow Ranch on October 23 & 24th – please see attached schedule to see when your child(ren) will attend. Teachers will be leading all groups this year as we explore our outside science concepts, using our senses to explore and making the best use of our visual journals outside as well. We are looking for several parent volunteers to support teachers with their groups – please copy and paste the following URL to sign up as a volunteer and have a valid CPS police clearance – we love our volunteers JJ  https://www.signupgenius.com/go/5080D44AFAB28ABF94-glenbow2
       6.  KINDERGARTEN FIELD TRIP TO INGLEWOOD BIRD SANCTUARY
AM Kindergarten students had an amazing experience at the Inglewood Bird Sanctuary last Friday and our PM Kindergarten students will traveling to Inglewood this Friday, October 19/18 for the morning JJ  Please check out the Kindergarten blog for further details.
       7. EHS ‘SPOOKTACULAR’ IS COMING!
Mark your calendars for October 25th – it is our annual EHS SPOOKTACULAR Event!  Details for purchasing tickets and the planned events were sent home with parents. Please be sure you check out this fun-filled opportunity! And remember, October 26th is a non-instructional day for children JJ
        8.  GRADE TWO FLOURIDATION RESEARCH PROJECT
       Eric Harvie School will be offering parents of grade two children the opportunity to participate in a Flouridation research project on November 1, 2018. During the 2013/14 school year, a research team conducted a study examining the short-term impact (2.5-3 years) of the removal of fluoride from Calgary’s drinking water (which occurred in early 2011) on the oral health of schoolchildren in Grade 2. The purpose of the current study is to examine the longer-term impact (7-8 years after the removal of fluoride) of this decision. Data will be collected from a population based on a sample of schoolchildren in Calgary, and in Edmonton where municipal drinking water remains fluoridated. 
 Forms will be coming home to Grade Two student families next week with complete details.  This is an anonymous research project and involves a 5 – 10 minute scan of your child’s teeth by a trained dental professional. Any concerns will be reported to parents directly and confidentially. Participation in the research requires parental consent – only the students whose forms are signed and returned will participate on November 1, 2018.  Please watch for information coming home.
       9.  SCHOOL COUNCIL FUNDRAISING PROJECTS COMING IN NOVEMBER
Our school enhancement opportunities – such as our Sound Kreations Dance Residency for 10 days – are funded fully by the fundraising efforts of our School Council and the Eric Harvie School Enhancement Society.  They will launch their first fundraising project in early November with FundScrip Gift Cards. Please watch for information coming out soon! Get all your holiday shopping done at one time – and help support student programming at the same time JJ
      10. HEALTHY HUNGER FUN LUNCH & FUN SNACK JJ The Eric Harvie School Fun Lunch has launched!   Orders must be placed through Healthy Hunger for all Fun Lunch and Fun Snack options. Please copy and paste the URL http://www.healthyhunger.ca to sign up for your child’s fun lunches and fun snacks JJ
We are looking for volunteers to help out for both the Fun Lunch and Fun Snack days.  If you are able to help out please see the following sign-ups.
Fun Snack: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/5080d44afab28abf94-october Fun Lunch: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/5080d44afab28abf94-eric17
 
        11. UPCOMING CHANGES TO TRAFFIC CONTROL AROUND ERIC HARVIE SCHOOL
We have been advised there are some anticipated changes to traffic control around the school in the coming months. For example, the parking along Tuscany Way, just past Tuscany Drive, will be re-signed to a much shorter parking area to facilitate the movement of traffic turning from Tuscany Drive onto Tuscany Way towards the Fire Station. There will be city traffic cones placed along Tuscany Way as well to draw greater attention to the movement of children in the crosswalks. And there is the possibility the bus stop in front of the school may be moved as well.  These are all changes intended to make the area safer for the movement of children through the school zone. And we ask parents to PLEASE treat teachers with respect who are on supervision at the crosswalks – they do their best to make your children safe every day and it often seems like they are putting their lives in jeopardy to do so – your support and attention to the safety rules and laws will be most appreciated!!
       12. PLEASE CHECK OUT ‘OLIVER’S LABELS’!
Oliver’s Labels sells products to label everything from clothes and shoes to books and pencils. This is an ongoing fundraising project for our School Council so purchasing labels will mean you are benefitting the school in two ways – ensuring your child’s belongings do not end up in our ‘lost and never found’ bucket and also raising funds for school programming JJ
      13.  CALGARY FLAMES TICKETS FUNDRAISER FOR SCHOOLS
Last year our school raised over $500.00 from the ticket purchases our families made for Calgary Flames and Stampeders tickets – wow!! The promotion continues this year – please click on this link into your browser to purchase tickets:
