Good afternoon AFS families,

We trust that you all had a relaxing winter break and that you staying warm today. Once again there are very few people in our building. It is strange being in the school without the joy, energy, and laughter of all the students. We miss them.

This week most teachers are able to work from home while they prepare lessons, tasks, assessment, and reporting documents. We were able to have an online meeting this morning and wish each other a Happy New Year, we wish the same to all of you. At this point we do not know what next week will look like. We know that the Minister of Education will provide us direction near the end of the week, we also know the CBE will follow those directions and provide us all more guidelines based on the government expectations. I will also be in touch with you, when I have more to share, regarding our next right steps at AFS.

This afternoon I have some bittersweet news to share. As part of her continuing professional journey, Tianna Melnyk, our amazing AP, has accepted a position at Capitol Hill School as their new Assistant Principal. We are thankful for all that Tianna has done for AFS over the past 3+ years. Her guidance and consistency will be missed. We wish her well in her new endeavours and appreciate that we will continue to benefit from all she has to offer until February 4.

We look forward to welcoming all our students and staff back to school soon.
Helen Sharpe and all AFS staff

RT @SASCBE: Our Grade 3/4s had a hands on experience building birds houses after learning about the importance of birds in Calgary. Birds are often seen as spiritual messengers who bridge the natural and spirit world in Indigenous cultures. @DClovis https://t.co/7DoX3d45Ca

RT @CJMCBE: Our Grade 5 students explored Weaselhead Flats today. We learned so much about wetlands, plants, and animals. We studied aquatic invertebrates and saw so many different birds. Thank you to our guide and to our parent volunteers 😃 #WeAreCBE https://t.co/H26VYcj1EY
