Principal's Message

January Updates

Wow!  January has just flown by!  We are very happy to have some nice weather to end the month!
Staffing Changes
We are very fortunate to be able to add a staff member to Vista Heights.  We would like to welcome Mrs. Dineen Brace to Vista Heights as our Resource Teacher.  Mrs. Brace will be supporting our students with small group support, and supporting personalized learning in our classrooms.
Flexible Recess
Many schools in the Calgary Board of Education offer a flexible recess break. Vista Heights had a trial of flexible recess during the last week of school, and will be continuing this practice moving forward.  This means that teachers will be taking their students outside for a 15-minute recess break when it makes sense for their learning.  Often a scheduled recess can interrupt student learning as they have to drop everything at that moment to go outside.  This gives students the opportunity to have the playground or field with just one other class.  At lunchtime, half of the students are outside from 12:00-12:20, and then come in to eat their lunch.  The other half of the students are eating first from 12:00-12:20, and then head outside for the remainder of the lunch hour.  The exception is when it is below -20.  We have blue days where students have different activities they can choose as it is too cold to be outside.
Report Cards
Report cards will be going home with your child on Thursday, January 30.  There have been some changes to Assessment and Reporting this year.  Teachers shared this information during the parent teacher conferences in November. You will see the indicator NATR for mathematics.  This indicator means that the strand of mathematics has not been fully taught and assessed.  Your child will receive a number indicator for the strands that have been fully taught and assessed.  The mathematics strands have also changed from last year.  CBE has created a video that explains all of the changes.  Please click on the link to view the video.

Professional Day Reminder
There is no school for students on January 31, 2020.  It is a professional day.
 
SoundKreations Artist Residency
We will be working with an artist in Residence from February 3-7.  The students will be learning about Slam Poetry.  We will have a Celebration of Learning at 1:30 on Friday, February 7, 2020.  Thank you to School Council for this great opportunity!
