Dear Alex Ferguson School families,
2020-2021 was a challenging year for all schools in Alberta. Resilience has been demonstrated in the actions of many throughout our school community. Our Alex Ferguson School community remained strong and vibrant through the challenges of the past year.
Planning, organization and staffing occurred in the spring. We are looking forward to welcoming our students back in September 2021 as well as welcoming our new families and our Kindergarten students.
At Alexander Ferguson, our staff is committed to the personalization of student learning through the arts. Our teachers promote intellectual engagement in learning by designing intriguing inquiry tasks. Students are encouraged to develop self-advocacy and socialization skills are intentionally taught as well as through “teachable moments".
Our school is committed to continuous improvement. For 2021-2022, our School Development Plan will continue to focus on improving Literacy skills, specifically in writing, and student wellness (mindfulness, self regulation and resilience). We will also be adding a new goal to improve student learning in Mathematics. We look forward to sharing our plan with our school community in the fall.
A new school year brings excitement and enthusiasm. It is an opportunity to make some new friends and renew prior friendships. Our teachers work hard to plan for engaging learning experiences in every classroom and are looking forward to meeting their classes.
