On Friday, we will run a Friday timetable - options will begin on Monday.

January 2019 Newsletter

Report Cards and IPPs

This newsletter marks the midway point of the year and the time when we send home report cards and IPP updates. We do not have Parent-Teacher Interviews at this point in the year, however we are always happy to hear from parents by email or telephone and can schedule meetings where appropriate. The next interviews will take place just before spring break, after Student Learning Updates are sent home.

If you would like to speak to you student’s teachers, please call the school at 403-777-7360 and we can connect you.

Staffing Updates

We have a few staff changes to announce.  Teachers Mr. Michael Stahl and Mr. Jeremy MacDonald left Ian Bazalgette School at the winter break.  We are pleased to welcome Mr. Matt Hawes (grade 6 Humanities) and Ms Ashley Rowley (grade 8 Humanities).  

As well, our Administrative Assistant, Lynne Grey, retired as of January 18th.  Ms Sheila Jenkins has taken over the role in her place.  Welcome, Ms Jenkins!

We will also be saying goodbye to Ms Mary Elizabeth Kaiser, our Assistant Principal. Ms Kaiser will be taking on the role at Sam Shaw School beginning February 19.  We do not have a new assistant principal in her place as of yet, however the recruiting process has begun.

Although we are always sad to see our colleagues move on, it is always a treat when they stop by to say hello and we hear about their new adventures.  If you happen to be in the school, please stop in and give a warm Baz welcome to our new staff, and wish a fond farewell to Ms Kaiser.

Grade 9 Registration for High School

Please note important dates in the calendar (see left bar). All grade 9 students will be completing their registration for high school with their counselors in February. Should you wish for your student to attend a high school other than their designated school, please talk to your grade 9 teacher or the office for information on how to request a transfer. 


Please note important dates in the calendar (see calendar section of this website). 

Athletics Update

We are now midway through the year.  Congratulations to our Cross Country runners, Volleyball teams and wrestlers for their successful season.  The Wrestling team just completed their season last week, with solid divisional wins in all age categories.  Congratulations!

We are now in the middle of basketball season.  We would love to see both parents and students come out to watch our students play.  Just a reminder that all schools have a strict policy around supervision.  For students to be in attendance at a game, that student’s parent/guardian must be present.  The only exception to this is that we are able to welcome ALL Baz students at the first game when we are hosting (this game runs from 4:30 – 5:30pm).

Basketball season runs until spring break.  After basketball, we will be playing Badminton, and taking part in Track and Field.

Overdue Books!

Please check to see if you have any overdue books from either Ian Baz or any other CBE school.  We are happy to take any books back and will return them to any CBE school.


Thank you for your continued support of our school and your students!  If you ever have any questions or concerns, please call the school at 403-777-7360, or stop by the office.
