    Principal's Message

    Welcome Back!

    Welcome back! We hope everyone restful and rejuvenating Spring Break. As our students enter into the last few months of the school year, they are looking forward to continuing to explore the world around them and taking advantage of experiential learning opportunities in and around our local school community. As the weather improves, and the ice melts, our playground and fields become quite muddy and wet. It would be a good idea to send a change of clothes with your child to keep in their backpack so they can explore outside and still remain comfortable inside our building.
    It’s that time of year again when we begin the process of planning for next year. Having an accurate idea of numbers of students helps the administration of the school to make good decisions about staffing for each classroom and plan appropriately for needed support. If you know that your child(ren) will not be returning to Olympic Heights School in September 2019, please indicate this on the form contained within this newsletter and return to the main office. You can also call or email the main office to inform them of your plans for next year. We appreciate your cooperation, as it makes next year’s planning much easier.
    Thank you to all the students, parents, and guardians who attended the Student Led Conferences on March 21 and 22. Your attendance sends a strong message to your child that you value their education and are actively involved in their learning. It is wonderful to see the excitement in our students as they share snapshots of what they have been working so diligently on over the past several months.
    There will be no school for students on Monday, April 22. This is a system-wide PD Day.
    Olympic Heights School is once again looking forward to celebrating the support, contributions, talents, and generous gift of time our school volunteers have given this year with our annual “Volunteer Tea.” Please mark May 3rd at 9:15 am on your calendar, so you can participate in a morning of entertainment, goodies, and celebration. All school volunteers are welcome. We believe that when students, parents, and staff work together, student learning is enhanced and our school culture thrives. Thank you, volunteers!
    Kindergarten Orientation – On Thursday, May 2 6:30-7:30 PM, for all new families for Kindergarten next year. New students for the 2019-2020 school year are invited to an orientation, where staff will present information to ensure your child has a successful first year in their education journey.
    We are pleased to inform our learning community that Kids Zinc will continue to run a before and after school childcare program in the school next year just for Olympic Heights students. They are also extending their kindergarten program to include morning and afternoon care for the 2019-2020 school year.
    Budgeting, staffing and plans for school organization for the 2019-2020 school year begins this month. As decisions are made we will keep everyone informed.
    The Circle of Courage and Bullying Program continues to be reinforced with students to reduce the number of bullying incidents, teasing, harassment, physical and verbal aggression at school. Students continue to be taught to stand up to hurtful behaviors and bullying through an “I Message” and how to take an active role in making the school a positive learning community which creates a sense of belonging for all. We continue to encourage students and parents to keep the school informed when a bullying incident occurs. It is through this information that we can deal effectively and take action against those who bully others. Please do not hesitate to contact the school if your child is being bullied. We take these matters seriously and want to ensure that every student at Olympic Heights School feels safe and has a sense of belonging.
    If a student is involved in bullying or hurtful behavior, he/she will go through a number of steps to help resolve the conflict. Once the student has worked with an adult through a problem solving process, the first step will be that the student goes home and explains what happened to his/her parent(s). The parent will then call the school the next day to confirm the conversation with their child. It is important that the child takes ownership for the behavior/poor choice. These important life skills are needed in order to be responsible, caring and productive citizens.
    The goal is that students see this problem solving process as a learning experience. By going through this it teaches the students skills of empathy, respecting the feelings and rights of others, and accepting responsibility for their actions.
    The hope for the future is when, “We all think, speak and act to make the school, community and world a better place to live.”
    Each month we invite parents/guardians to attend the monthly School Council Meeting. Participants are able to give input, ask questions and share about the various school programs and activities which happen at Olympic Heights School. Council members get to know the school staff in a more interactive way and see the “systemic picture” of the school in addition to just their child’s grade level. We value the advice and opinions of our School Council as they guide our school decisions. In addition to this, the School Council sponsors, supports and runs a variety of activities throughout the year: organizing and coordinating a casino and other fund raising activities that supply our school with school resources that support student learning and increase student achievement. Knowing that it is difficult to attend every month we do want to encourage parents to attend whenever possible. Please plan to attend the next meeting on Thursday, April 18 at 6:30 pm in the Learning Plaza. The support and hard work of School Council is appreciated by the students, staff and parents of Olympic Heights School.
    Olympic Heights School is a polling station for the Tuesday, April 16th Provincial Election. Please get out and vote.
    Please add this date to your calendar. Our annual Pancake breakfast and is Friday, May 31, 2019. The Calgary Stampede could not accommodate us for our original date. This is gift each year and we always appreciate their generosity in providing this amazing opportunity for us.
    Once again thank you to our students, parents/guardians and staff for continuing to make Olympic Heights School a great place to learn.
