Principal's Message

Alex Munro Updates April 19-23

​April 26
Non-Instructional Day for all students.
COVID-19 Update
Please see the CBE website for details of grades 7-12 students beginning a two week period of online learning on April 19th as they continue to experience significant disruption with the need for staff and students to isolate.  All K-6 schools remain open for face-to-face learning.  There is no change for K-6 students.    
We ask for your continued support for students to wear masks diligently (with frequent breaks) as we continue to follow the directions for cohorts of students, social distancing, hand washing and sanitizing.  We appreciate our facilities staff for their diligent care and attention to cleaning our school house daily.   
School Budget and Fees Engagement
Each spring our school prepares a school budget for the upcoming school year and sets school fees for some activities and services.  Please share your feedback about our budget and fees at Alex Munro through a survey at the URL below.  Results from the survey will be posted by the end of May.

AMPA
The next AMPA meeting is Monday, May 10 at 6 PM.  This meeting is the AMPA Annual General Meeting.  AMPA is looking for new school members always.  These opportunities will be shared at this meeting.  If you wish to attend, please email alexmunroschoolcouncil@gmail.com for the meeting agenda and link.  One point of discussion will be the School Development Plan. 
A reminder to all Alex Munro families that the returnables FUNdraiser will continue every Friday morning.  Bring your clean returnables to the NE corner of the school field for collection by AMPA.  Thank-you!
The March/April Drawing Contest submissions are due April 30th.  Submit a picture of a garden you would plant – a fabulous prize pack is available for one selected submission. 
CBe-learn Transfer Process
On April 8, CBE emailed current students to provide instructions for requesting a transfer to CBe-learn for full-time online learning next year.  The forms are due to the current school on Friday, April 23.   
Draft Curriculum
The Board of Trustees and Administration of the Calgary Board of Education has decided not to participate in the draft curriculum pilot in fall 2021, citing concerns similar to those expressed by educators, academic staff, parents, and community members.  The CBE supports the goal of strengthening the curriculum to prepare students for the future and trusts that government will consider all the feedback gathered across the province and make the necessary changes prior to implementation in September 22.  Have your say about the draft curriculum at the link below.

 Hats On! For Mental Health Day – May 5
Students and staff are invited to wear hats in school on this day to raise awareness of the importance of good mental health.   
Share Your Voice About Education
Alberta Education will be mailing packages to all parents/legal guardians of students in grades 4, 5 and 6 about their Assurance Survey.  The survey asks parents to share their opinions about quality of education.  The mailed package will include an access code to an online survey and the link to the survey.  All parents with students in grades 4, 5 and 6 should receive one access code for each child in those grades.
Your input is valued!  The school receives the feedback from the survey that is anonymously shared by parents/legal guardians.  This helps us to consider your perspectives when making instructional and organization decisions.  Please consider participating and sharing your perspectives.  The survey is open until April 23.   
If you require a paper copy, a translated copy of the survey, or any further information about the survey, please contact the school by phone or at alexmunro@cbe.ab.ca.  ​
