Dear Parents & Guardians,
Thank you to all the parents who joined the school council meeting on Tuesday. A big thank you to Ms. Connell and Constable Mark Enzie from the Calgary Police who were guests.
It is hard to believe that we are heading into the last week of school before spring break.
I am looking forward to digging up more lawn and sowing bee-friendly flowers. Going for long walks, reading at least 2 good books (I love a good crime novel!) and spending time with my little grand-daughter.
I have reached out to Camp Kiwanis and have given them our preferred choice of weeks, which are all mid September to early October. Of course, all of this is tentative, as none of us know what the world will look like in the fall.
If you are a grade 4-6 parent, Alberta Education is asking for your feedback (as they do every year). Please fill out the Alberta Education Assurance Survey (formerly the Accountability Pillar Survey). It has been scheduled for the week of March 22 to April 23, 2021. You should be receiving a letter soon. Your feedback is important to us as we use the data to make decisions and to report back to the whole school community. Seeing as we are such a small school, I encourage all of our grade 4-6 parents to complete the survey. Last year, 13 parents filled out the survey, which was a huge improvement over the only 8 from the 2019. My challenge to you is: Lets try to have 25 parents fill out the survey! The more parents fill it out, the more valid the data is. Thank you in advance for taking time out of your busy days to complete the survey.
Meike Thomsen, Principal
