Gratitude

“Gratitude helps us see what is there instead of what isn’t.”~ Annette Bridges

As many of us celebrate Thanksgiving, I want to take a moment to express my gratitude to the staff, students and parents of Coventry Hills School.  We are an amazing community and I have seen firsthand the care that we have for one another.  On many occasions in the last few weeks, so many have stepped in to help and express their gratitude.  We are fortune to work with such support.

Recently, there has been bite in the air as the colder weather will soon be on its way. We have been so fortunate to have a nice autumn and the leaves have turned into a rainbow of fall colours.  Thank you to Ms. Brady, our PE teacher who is outside every day with our students ensuring they have an opportunity to engage in meaningful physical education experiences. Students will continue to be outside in the elements for daily PE so that they can have space to have some fun and ensuring appropriate physical distancing. Please send your child(ren) dressed appropriately for our unpredictable fall weather that will soon be upon us.

Next week will be our first school council meeting. A School Messenger was sent our regarding the Annual General Meeting. All parents are welcome to attend our virtual meeting on Thursday, October 15 at 6:30.  Information was sent out via school messenger on Friday. We will share the link again on Wednesday through school messenger. During this meeting, I will be introducing the staff and sharing information regarding our school start up and the Google Classroom for online instruction.

As new information regarding COVID-19 is released, I know the information can be overwhelming for families. At the school, we are working to ensure care and safety in our classrooms to eliminate as much risk as possible.  Alberta Health has released a new AHS parent COVID guide. If you have any questions about the process, you can call Health Link at 811.

Sincerely,

Benita Dalton
Principal
