Principal's Message

Welcome Back

​Summer has flown by and here we are – ready to begin Year Two of Eric Harvie School! We sincerely hope all our families enjoyed the beautiful summer weather and are as excited about the new school year as we are.
Our biggest news of the summer came late in June when the province announced it would fund our school playground up to $250,000.00! With all the fundraising School Council has undertaken over the past couple of years we are situated to begin construction on the playground the last week in September – YAHOO!! Huge appreciations to Santana Cunnington, the Playground Coordinator, and all the amazing people who have worked tirelessly with the Eric Harvie School Enhancement Society and School Council!! We will be looking for continued support and volunteers to complete the project so please watch for further information and offer to help out where/when you are able.
Our school has grown and been re-organized for Year Two.  We are welcoming several new staff members, both in teaching and support staff, and are so grateful for the outstanding people who constitute our staff, and are so committed to fully supporting our students in the coming months towards their best possible academic, social, physical and emotional achievement! A Staff List for 2017-18 is attached. However, due to the growth that has continued over the summer, we will be hiring additional staff and this may impact your child’s learning situation through the month of September. While this is never ideal, we will do our utmost to ensure disruptions to learning are minimalized as much as possible, and to keep all families fully informed.
When you come to the school office, Mrs. Vivianne Carroll, Mrs. Atiya Adamjee and Mrs. Mominah Shabbir will be there to support and assist you with your questions. We do ask that parents refrain from visiting the office before 9:00 am in the morning, and before 12:45 pm in the afternoons, so attendance can be swiftly and accurately completed and confirmed. There is always office support in the office, even over the lunch hour, between the hours of 8:10 am – 3:30 pm, although not all 3 office-staff work full time there. This means it can get very busy occasionally and the phones may go to voicemail. If they do, please leave a clear message and we will get back to you as soon as possible.
There are many, many exciting things happening at our school throughout the school year! With the launching of our new website at http://school.cbe.ab.ca/school/ericharvie/Pages/default.aspx it is no longer necessary to send out Monday Connects for families since we will be using our school website as a primary source of ongoing information and student celebration. We expect to have our school calendar launched on the website next week sometime, and we will continue to post News items on the front page as well. We will continue to send emails to parents from time to time with pertinent information in them but will try to be thoughtful with the number and times emails are sent.
Parent Volunteers in the school are ALWAYS appreciated! Please ensure you have a current (less than 5 years old) police clearance on file to ensure you are able to volunteer in your child’s classroom.  If you do not yet have a security clearance, please check with office staff – they will be very happy to help you out!
EHS teachers began Year Two a full day early as they all engaged in Therapeutic Crisis Intervention training August 29/30 at the school.  This is highly regarded, well-researched and thorough training program to assist school personnel with supporting students who are not coping well with school for a wide variety of reasons. We will complete the third day of training and receive certification on Friday, September 22/17.
Please note start/end time changes for this school year on the website.
Our bell times are:
Monday – Thursday:
Supervision outside begins 8:10 AM Entry bell is 8:25 AM Lunch begins/AM Kindergarten dismisses 11:15 AM Lunch ends/PM Kindergarten begins 12:10 PM School Dismisses (PM K – Gr. 4) 3:00 PM
Fridays:
(Kindergarten AM/PM classes alternate attendance on Fridays as per the schedule emailed to parents and posted on the website beginning in September)  Supervision outside begins 8:10 AM Entry bell is 8:25 AM Early dismissal every Friday is 12:05 PM
Please watch your email Friday afternoon, September 1, 2017 for a welcoming note from your child’s teacher that includes entry door information as well. We are looking forward to Tuesday, September 5 and the WELCOME BACK BREAKFAST! It will be great fun to see how everyone has grown and changed over the summer and to welcome all our new staff and students!
