Welcome Back to 2020!

Welcome back to a new year - 2020!  A new year brings many opportunities to create goals for ourselves.

Here are  4 student New Year’s resolution ideas students can try:

1) Read More: Set aside time during each day for silent and/or out-loud reading. Be sure to chart your reading with reading logs to see how many books have been read.

2) Learn More:  Learning happens every day, but that doesn’t mean we can’t make a New Year’s resolution to learn more. Whether they want to learn about another culture, learn a new sport or activity, or improve in a subject, students will love choosing their own learning goals.

3) Make New Friends:  Promote friendship by encouraging students to talk to someone new or to include others.

4) Be a Good Citizen:  Being helpful and being polite are just a couple of small ways that students can be good citizens. Helping to create a school-wide goal like recycling or picking up trash, will get students, teachers, staff and parents in on the action. 

I look forward to being a part of the culture at Roland Michener School and continuing with the great things that are happening here.

January looks to bring us a cold week ahead.  Students are reminded to dress appropriately for the weather on these extra chilly days.

Year End 2019!

And so ends another school year!   There were days this winter it seemed June was never going to arrive, and suddenly its summer.   The final week was very busy:  report cards, School Council hosted their annual Hootenanny, the talent show, sports day and grade 5 farewell.    We wish all our families a restful and wonderful summer.  We look forward to welcoming students back to school on August 15!

Opening Message

The 2018-2019 school year has begun!  We would like to welcome back our returning students and families and extend a welcome to those students and families new to us this year.  The first 2 days have run very smoothly, despite the sudden changes to our routines as a result of the air quality.    We will continue to monitor air quality daily over the upcoming weeks to minimize exposure when air quality poses risks. 

Curriculum Overview Evening—Thursday August 30 @ 4:30-6:30 pm

Parents will have a chance to meet teachers on August 30 from 4:30-7:30.  We are currently finalizing our format for the evening and will send details out soon, so please watch for further details and sign up information.  In the meantime, should you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact your child’s teacher.  Generally we recommend emailing when you have questions or concerns—all email addresses are available on our school website.   ​

Nearing End of a Great Year

Thank You to School Council and Parent Society

School Council and Parent Society meetings are held every third Tuesday of the month at 6:00. These meetings provide opportunities for parents to provide feedback, to ask questions, to gain insight into what is happening at the school and how parents can help support the work within the school. We have had a great turnout at the meetings this year and I encourage parents to consider this opportunity next year. 

For the many parents who committed their time this year please know how much we appreciate all your hard work on fundraising, the thoughtfulness of your questions, and your dedication to improving the educational experience of all our students. Thank you from Roland Michener School!


Sadly, the end of June in a school means we must say goodbye to members of the Roland Michener Family.

To our grade 5 students, we wish you all the best as you transition to a new school. We know you will take many memories of RMS with you, but please remember you have left us with many memories of you. We have provided an excellent foundation for you — we hope you come back and visit so we can see how you have built from that!

To the students and families who will be leaving the area, we hope the new school year is successful.

We also have several staff who will pursue new adventures next year: Mrs. Alison Kaiser, Ms. Melissa McLaughlin and Ms. Rebekah Granger. Thank you so much for your contributions to Roland Michener School. Each of you has been a valued member of the Roland Michener Family and we know how lucky the schools you move to will be to have you.

To our returning students and families, we hope you have a wonderful summer break and look forward to welcoming you back on August 15 at 8:25 am!


Our 5th Annual RMS Hootenanny, hosted by School Council, will take place on June 28 beginning with a Pancake Breakfast at 8:30 am, followed by a talent show and a Sports Day afternoon for students. Our RMS spirit club has organized a Red and White Day theme for the Hootenanny/Sports Day to honour our RMS 40th Anniversary and Canada’s 150th Birthday. We encourage everyone to wear their Canadian colours for the day.

School Council would like to thank Calgary COOP, 52 Street location for their contribution to our Hootenanny.

All parents are welcome to join us for breakfast and the talent show which will follow once the breakfast has wrapped up, students have returned to classes and organized for the show.

Sorry—we are not able to provide an exact time for the show to begin.
