Hope you have had a wonderful weekend & enjoyed some of the beautiful weather! 


Minecraft Challenge Celebration

Last week we enjoyed seeing the learning that the Grade 4, 5 and 6 students have taken up in creating submissions for the CBE and City of Calgary's Minecraft Challenge. Thank you to the families in Gr. 4 who were able to come for the celebration of learning on Wednesday and thank you to Christopher Blais from the CBE and to Jason Cameron from the City of Calgary who visited our Gr. 5 and 6 students on Thursday. Students did an excellent job verbalizing intended learning outcomes & sharing their designs! 


Offsite & Onsite Learning Opportunities this week @ Sibbald

Our Kindergarten students are off to the Parkland Fire Station, our Grades 1-3 students will be busy swimming, and our Grades 4-6 students will engage in a Netball residency here at school throughout the week. Thank you to our Parent Association for covering the cost of the Netball residency. We are all curious and excited to learn more about this sport. 


Thank You for Your Feedback

Every year, CBE schools seek feedback from parents and guardians around school-based fees, unlike Central fees which include bussing, lunchroom and school supply fees, which are set by the System. We also appreciate gathering input around enhancements to school learning (residencies, field trips, working with experts) and how these rank as priorities. Please see the results of the survey posted on our website here


National Volunteer Appreciation Week!

National Volunteer Week is April 16-22. Thousands of volunteers work in CBE schools every year and play an important role in supporting students and schools. This year at Andrew Sibbald we have processed well over 110 volunteers and this number continues to grow. Please direct all questions about volunteering to Mrs. Dupuis in the office. We look forward to hosting a Volunteer Appreciation on June 2nd to honour all of those who have volunteered at Andrew Sibbald School this year. Stay tuned for more information. Thank You!


Save the Date: Sunday April 23rd 7:00 p.m. Virtual Parent Session

Parents, this week, you will receive an email invitation to register for a virtual presentation hosted by Paul Davis around 'Social Networking Safety.' Please see here to learn more about Paul and his work. Thank you to our School Council for organizing this event for parents and guardians.
