Principal's Message January 30

Dear Parents,​

Monday, January 30th is the electronic release of student report cards.  Parents can access their child's report card through the MyCBE Account which is located on the bottom of our school website.  If you are having trouble creating an account, please call our office and Mrs. Armstrong can help you set it up. Report cards are a time to celebrate your child's learning and to share next steps. If you have any concerns regarding your child's progress, please reach out directly to the teacher.   

Kindergarten registration is ongoing! Many families may have already registered. If you have a child who will be 5 before December 31st, they are eligible to start Kindergarten.  We will have an parent evening in March and then an welcome to Kindergarten event in June. More information about these events will be coming out to all families who have registered.  If you have a child who is identified with special needs and is currently attending preschool, please ensure your agencies have released information to the Calgary Board of Education. If you have any questions about this you can contact Ms. Dalton at bfdalton@cbe.ab.ca.  we are hoping to have approximately 100 students register for the 2023- 2024 school year.

It is hard to believe that we are already looking into the month of February. In February, we have several events that are taking place. Firstly, it is teacher appreciation week from February 6 – 10th.  I would like to thank first-hand the teachers for all that they do in supporting our students.  Our teachers are kind, generous and inspirational in helping our students find their potential and working with them to awaken new horizons as learners.  Teachers at Coventry Hills School care for each of their students. As Henry Brook Adams said, “A teacher affects eternity; they can never tell where their influence stops." 

Teacher's Convention is February 16 and 17. There will be no school for students on these days. Students will return back to school after the Family Day holiday on Tuesday, February 21. 

On February 23 is Pink Shirt Day. We participate in this day to raise awareness of respecting each other and promoting healthy relationships.  This year's theme is: “Be Kind and Lift Each Other Up."  We will be doing school-based learning activities related to this theme throughout the month of February.  Pink Day was first initiated by a group of students who stood together to support other students who was bullied because he was wearing a pink shirt. Today, we stand in solidarity to stand up and speak out against bullying behaviour. Bullying is not a normal part of growing up. Parents can support their child in learning about this by teaching their children that is they see someone being treated unkindly or being bullied to not join watch, laugh or join in. They should see the value of offering empathy and support for those who are treated unkindly and to seek adult support at school.
