Principal's Message

Principal's Message

​Hopefully you have had an opportunity to review your child’s report card that was made available to you through PowerSchool on January 30.  The purpose of this report card is to provide you with a summary of assessment data in relation to how your child is achieving in each of the major curricular outcomes associated with their subjects.  Teacher comments are intended to give insight as to your child’s current achievement and identify areas for continual growth. There will be one more report card at the end of June.  Please bear in mind that should you ever have any questions or concerns, you are encouraged to contact teachers throughout the course of the school year.​
 
Our final round of Parent/Teacher/Student Conferences are scheduled for February 11 and 12.  These conferences are by appointment only and scheduled through Conference Manager.  Parent/Teacher/Student Conferences are an excellent means to helping teachers and parents to better support students as “action plans” can be developed between school and home to help further set conditions for success.  Also, through these conversations, students come to better understand what is expected of them and the support that is available to help them to realize further success.  Should you experience any difficulty booking appointments, please contact the school’s main office.
 
In addition to report cards, students and parents are encouraged to regularly visit D2L to monitor student progress and to also be aware of homework, assignments, and test dates. There is a direct link to D2L contained on our website at www.cbe.ab.ca/mckenziehighlands.  Additionally, I encourage you to visit Iris, which can also be accessed by visiting our website.  In Iris, you will find your child’s self-authored Student Learning Plan, in which they have set forth specific learning goals for themselves and developed strategies to realize those goals. You will also find artefacts of their work.
 
Over the last few weeks, parents/guardians of grades 4 and 7 students should have received a survey in the mail from Alberta Education.  The Accountability Pillar serves as an “annual check-up” on the province’s education system.  Your participation in the survey helps provide information about the quality of education your child is receiving.  Survey results will be available to school authorities in May and will be reported publicly as part of the CBE Three Year Education Plan and Annual Education Results Report.  From a school perspective, this survey provides very valuable information to support our school planning processes.  
 
 As always there is no shortage of activity beyond the walls of classrooms! This coming weekend is our junior basketball tournament – Hoopfest!  Go Legends go! Grades 4, 5 and 6 students will get to participate in an activity day on February 21 that will feature such activities as swimming, mini golf, bowling, “InjaNation,” and skiing at Nakiska.  Grade 6 students will further their understanding of aerospace and aerodynamics by visiting the Hanger Flight Museum later this month.  Next month, grade 4 students will be visiting the Leighton Centre and grade 9 students will attend SAIT to explore different career opportunities in the trades. Grades 4, 6, and 7 students will also be attending the National Geographic Presents series. Also, in early March, our senior basketball teams will take to the court in our tournament – the “Legendary Showdown.” Thank you to those staff members who have been involved in organizing these opportunities for our students.  We also wish our basketball teams best of luck as they continue to build on their strong starts to the season! Thank you to our coaches –  Ms. Birss, Mr. D’Aloisio, Mr. McFarlane, Mr. Harris, Mr. Rieger, and Mr. Irvine.
 
As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to call me or email me at kjconnelly@cbe.ab.ca 
 
Best regards, 
 
Kel Connelly ​
