Principal's Message

Oct./Nov. 2018

“Every problem has an opportunity for something good. You just have to look for it.”
Each year, at Taradale School, we start with a special picture book that we bring to life, throughout the year, in our 30 classrooms.
This school year, 2018 – 2019, we started with the book,
What Do You Do With a Problem?
By Kobi Yamanda
Yamada describes problems as an opportunity for something good which is the message we are sharing with our 660 students.
“When I got face to face with my problem, I discovered something. My problem wasn’t what I thought it was. I discovered it had something beautiful inside.” We are excited about the beautiful opportunities we will be creating this school year.
Our first 6 weeks have already been packed full of celebrations.  Please ask your children, each day, to share their celebrations with you.
I am honored to begin my twelfth year as the Principal of our Taradale community, which has created a respectful tone of valuing education and appreciating the opportunity to learn.  It is a privilege to be working with our Taradale families.  I feel very fortunate.
As a school community, we look forward to continuing to frame our work this year with the Calgary Board of Education Mission, Results and Values:
Mission - Each student, in keeping with his or her individual abilities and gifts, will complete high school with a foundation of learning necessary to thrive in life, work and continued learning.
Results - Academic Success  Citizenship    Personal Development    Character
Values - Students come first.  Learning is our central purpose.  Public education serves the common good.
With our 660 students, our September student enrollment is:
Kindergarten      139 Grade 1 – 4       522
Total                 661 students   
We are very pleased to welcome all of our families to Taradale School.
With this enrollment number, the Calgary Board of Education sent a letter home to our parents on September 15, 2009 stating, “….due to continued enrollment growth at Taradale School, the school is at capacity and will continue to be capped.”
The designated overflow bus receiver school for kindergarten to grade four students residing inside Taradale School’s attendance area is Guy Weadick School, which is located the community of Temple at 5612 Templehill Road NE.  You can contact the school at (403) 777-6740.
All new kindergarten to grade four students moving into Taradale School’s attendance area are designated to Guy Weadick School.
