Principal's Message

January 28th, 2019

​Dear Families,
 Happy New Year! Our return has been an eventful one with the excited busyness of re-connecting with friends, setting new learning goals and targets, and weather fluctuations, both enjoyable and challenging. Hard to believe we are almost at the end of the month.
 Many, many thanks to staff, students and parents for our Community Outreach Night! The evening was devoted to building community, developing a greater understanding of the Three Pillars of Care, and recognizing that small acts of kindness make a big difference in our community. Students and families worked together to create small gifts to give to others. In addition, our School Council gathered books which will be delivered to our partner school in the coming weeks. Reinforcing and deepening our understanding around the Pillars is one way we make our school a safe and caring place while building positive and active citizenship skills.
From early January to the end of February, Alberta Education will be conducting the annual Accountability Pillar Survey.  Before the end of January, parents/guardians of students in grade 4 will receive their survey in the mail from Alberta Education.  New this year, the survey can be completed on-line! The deadline for on-line responses has recently been extended to March 8. If you are a parent of a grade 4 student, please see the attachment for further important information related to the survey.
Kindergarten registration is on-going; we have approximately 95 new registrants. It has been a delight to meet so many eager new students and parents during our kindergarten intake meetings! While we are only at the beginning stages of planning for the 2019-20 school year, should you have friends, family, or neighbours who are new to the community or have not yet registered, please encourage them to do so. In addition, should you know you will not be attending West Springs School next year, please be sure to let us know. Knowing as much information as we can in advance makes the planning process easier.
 Just a reminder that safe drop off zones are in the hug and go directly in front of West Ridge School and where parking is allowed in and around the school. There is no parking or drop off in the bus zones, in the staff parking lots, on the street or immediately adjacent to crosswalks. Please choose safety over convenience to keep all of our people safe.
Report cards were distributed to students in early January. Our next formal, face to face communication regarding student progress will be March 21/22. However, should you have questions, concerns or want to share information regarding your child’s learning, please feel free to contact your child’s teacher to book an appointment.
The Calgary Board of Education is working with PowerSchool to develop a digital, printable version of the report card for the 2019-20 school year. Outside of staffing, paper and copying are our number one budget expense. Electronic report cards would be a considerable cost saving to the school. As more information becomes available, we will be sure to share at council meetings and via messenger. A printed copy of the report card will always be available at your request.
Carrie
