February Principal's Message

Safety is about one’s physical and mental state of well-being. At Beddington Heights School we continue to support others well-being through how we demonstrate our care for others.

Pink Shirt Day tomorrow: Wear pink on February 26, 2020 to show that you will not tolerate bullying. Bullying in any form is unacceptable and everyone has a role to play in promoting healthy relationships. Let’s continue to make our school community welcoming, caring, respectful, safe and inclusive.

Two Nova Scotia high school students inspired Pink Shirt Day by organizing their fellow students to wear pink in support of a grade 9 boy who was being bullied for wearing a pink shirt. The Alberta Education website also has information posted on safe and caring school environments if you wish more information

Student and school safety:  After bell times, please make sure that you check in at the office, so we can call your child down to meet you during instructional time.  We still have a few parents making their way down to classrooms and would like to thank parents who help us to not disrupt instructional time. We are happy to call your child down to the office at any time. This will also assist you if your child is in music, with their buddy class, in physical education, or in the Learning Commons.

Lates and absences: We are required by Alberta Education to keep track of all lates and absences. A copy of these is provided to you in report cards. Please note that absences, other than those that are for medical reasons, are considered unexcused absences for CBE and provincial purposes. This also applies to cold days where the school is not closed due to weather concerns.

School Patrols: We would like to take this opportunity to thank all community members who continue to support the exemplary work of our school patrols. The school has been the lucky recipient of many honours from the Alberta Motor Association/Calgary Police co-sponsored program.  We are happy to see our patrollers doing such a great job. Thanks to all parents who abide by the safety expectations laid out by the patrollers who are sponsored at the Beddington Heights by the cooperating teachers Mr. Mahon, Mr. Lancee, Ms. Wallace, and by our School Community Police Officer, Constable George Kovacs of the Calgary Police Force. The community support and the support by each and every parent is what makes our school safety patrol program such a great success. Our students feel a great sense of accomplishment knowing they are appreciated and are giving their free time to keep their schoolmates and other community members safe.

Pillars of Care Assembly: Friday February 28, 2020 at 8:15 a.m Pillar of the Month for February: “Understanding.”
