Principal's Message

Principal’s Message – November 5, 2018

​Hello to our Parents and Guardians!
 
As part of Alberta Education’s High School Redesign initiative, we have implemented flex time at QEHS, or “Knight Time”.  The purpose of a flex block is to enable students to utilize time within the timetable to enhance their learning.  A flex block is not a spare, students are expected to use the time to meet with a teacher (high school students) or work in a teacher’s classroom (junior high students) to get help in a class, finish incomplete work and projects, receive help with online courses, or investigate other ways to earn credits (dual credit).  Our senior high students have the additional option to use their flex time to go to a homework or study area (learning commons or SGA) or go to an enrichment area (gyms, woodshop, some classrooms, etc.) to participate in activities that add to their school day.  Teachers may request students attend their Knight Time block for extra academic support or if extra time is needed for a certain lab, writing assignment, test or project completion.    
 
Flex blocks are scheduled twice a week.  The timetable has been adjusted for flex blocks, so times shift.  It is more than independent time; students work with their homeroom teacher to design what flex block works best for them. 
 
Flex blocks are being incorporated across the province so that students can have the ability to access teachers and time for help during the school day.  Based on information provided from other high schools, when students access their teachers and complete homework during the day, they have the opportunity to be more successful.  The students and staff at QEHS all indicated the desire to try flex blocks this year through the annual student survey and through staff meetings.  While we have only had four Knight Time blocks so far, the initial feedback from our students is quite positive.  For example, one student said, “I like it, it is a great opportunity to finish homework”, while another said, “it gives me a chance to talk to teachers and get help”.   Since this is a new initiative, we are gathering feedback on this first cycle and will review its success before Winter Break in order to make a decision about next steps.   
 
Families are invited to attend our upcoming Remembrance Day Ceremony on Thursday, November 8th.  The Senior High Ceremony is from 9:00 – 10:30 am and the Junior High Ceremony will be from 10:30 am – 12:00.  A very special thank you to all of the students and staff who have worked incredibly hard to organize a thoughtful, reflective ceremony for the school and community.  There will be no classes for Queen Elizabeth High School students on Friday, November 9th. 
 
It is that time of year for the first report card for our High School students.  Beginning this year, parents will access information about their child’s achievement and report card comments through the MyCBE/PowerSchool Portal.  More information will be coming closer to the actual report card date (November 16) with specific details as to how to do this. 
 
Should you wish to have a printed report card for the interim reporting period, please contact the school.
 
I want to remind families that we have student/parent/teacher conferences scheduled for Thursday, November 22 (5-8 pm) and Friday, November 23 (8 am-noon).  However, please do not feel you need to wait for these dates to discuss your child’s progress with the teacher; you can contact us anytime with any questions or concerns you may have.
 
Thank you for your ongoing support.
 
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at queenelizabethjrsr@cbe.ab.ca or at (403) 777-6380.
