Principal's Message

September 26, 2019

​Dear Families,
 
Hard to believe we are one month in!! It was so nice to have the opportunity to meet parents and students at conferences! Please feel free to contact your child’s teacher at any time with questions or concerns regarding your child’s learning. As parents, you play an important role in shaping the way your child views learning; you understand more than anyone else how your child learns and processes information. Our goal is to work together to in order to ensure student success.
 
Assessment and Reporting:
At our September council meeting we briefly discussed upcoming changes to CBE assessment and reporting. System work is currently underway to develop greater clarity around the four-point scale and to revise some report card stems in order to ensure reporting aligns closely with our Programs of Study. As a school, we will work together with you and share information as it becomes available. The system will also be communicating directly with families.
 
School Development Planning:
Teachers at West Springs School will spend Friday afternoon mining our school-wide data for patterns and trends in order to set academic direction for the upcoming school year. Aligned with the CBE’s three-year education plan, our school will have three goals, one for literacy, one for numeracy and one well-being goal. The details of our plan including goals for student achievement will be determined over the coming weeks and posted on our school website when complete.
 
Dressing for the Weather:
Time spent outside is an important part of your child’s day. It appears that some cooler weather will settle in next week. Please ensure your child is prepared by helping them pack an extra pair of socks, mittens or toque into their backpack. Dressing in layers that can be removed or added as the climate dictates is always a good idea.
 
Front door/safety and security:
In order to improve safety and security for staff and students, West Springs School has installed a front camera and doorbell. Now, like other CBE schools, the front door will be locked at all times. We still want you to feel welcome!
 
To access the office, please ring the grey bell/intercom on the far left side (as you are facing the school). During office hours 8:30-4:30 Monday to Thursday and Friday 8:30-1:00, someone will unlock the door and you will be able to present yourself at the office. Due to the nature of our work, staff may not be readily available to open the door right away. Thank you in advance for your patience. Maple Roots families will still access the building in the regular manner outside of office hours.
 
High School Engagement:
The CBE continues to dialogue with the public, seeking feedback and input on ways to balance high school enrolment. For more information:  https://www.cbe.ab.ca/get-involved/public-engagement/Pages/High-School-Engagement.aspx
