We are Now into April

“Believe in yourself and all that you are. Know that there is something inside of you that is greater than any obstacle.” Christian D. Larson

Wow! We are now into April with a great deal of things on our minds. This is the time of year that considerable attention is placed on planning for next year. The Administrative Team is starting to make some plans for next year and making sure that we maintain the quality programming that you have become accustomed to. Sometime in April we will be given our operating budget and the process will begin. We will be looking for feedback about next year priorities.

The staff at Cecil Swanson I would like to thank all of you for your continued support in helping us meet the needs of your children. We cannot underestimate the difference it makes for students when parents are active participants in their child’s learning. It is also important that some have also communicated concerns or issues. We welcome the opportunity to improve upon what we do here, so if you have any questions or ideas, please never hesitate to contact the school.

Kindergarten Registration is open! We are really hoping to know all the new young Cecil Swanson students that will be joining us next year. If you have a child or know of a neighbour’s child that was born in 2016, please make sure you contact our office and register. You can visit: https://www.cbe.ab.ca/programs/kindergarten/Pages/default.aspx for more information or call our school at 403-777-6690.

Grade 2 students at Cecil Swanson School are raising money to buy t-shirts for all students.  We have an ongoing fundraiser with Skip the Depot.  If you don’t have any refundables and would still like to donate we have set up a Go Fund Me Page and a direct donation link.

Cecil Swanson has been given the go-ahead to have traditional class photos this April. Covid protocols will be followed for all group pictures. Photos will be taken April 12  throughout the day.

We had another very successful two days of Learning Conferences in March that many parents/guardians took part in. Thank you to all of you who met virtually with teachers.

If you have recently changed your contact numbers, address or if you are moving in the next little while, it would be greatly appreciated if you would give us a call and share those changes with us. Also, we really would appreciate any new updates on your child’s medical status which could impact their safety at school.

On behalf of our staff, we want to wish you a peaceful Spring Break with your children. We hope you and your children have the opportunity to reenergize and prepare mentally for the final three months of school.

Sincerely,

Mr. Adam Topp, Principal
Ms. Joan Murtagh, Assistant Principal
