Principal's Message

February Update


Greetings Crossing Park School Families:
We are a team.
I hope this finds everyone well!   I continue to be amazed at the Crossing Park community and am excited to focus my leadership on supporting teachers to support students in becoming their very best.  I would like to take the opportunity to thank every parent and guardian who took part in parent-teacher conferences.    When parents know how their children are progressing, they can help support academic growth.  A lot of times, these conversations are about celebrating growth.  
You don't need to be an expert.
It's also important to know that you don't need to be a professional teacher to help your children develop important skills.   Reading with your children is often cited as the number one academic activity you can do together to help with their growth.   Math can sometimes be intimidating, but as a parent there are practical things you can do to help develop basics.    Here are over 10 practical ways you can support with math- no matter what grade*:
 
 
Updates- Included in the Cobra Connection
 
Our focus continues to be on Safety, Happiness & Learning:
Safety Items:
School Activities Schools are able resume in-person activities, meetings and events with their school communities. This includes allowing indoor spectators at K-9 schools for sports and performances.
Principals have an obligation under the Education Act (Section 33) to ensure a safe environment in their schools and continue to have the authority to set attendance limits for events to ensure the safety of students and staff.
We may choose to continue on with some virtual events such as school council meetings and parent-teacher conferences.   In fact, sometimes virtual events and meetings mean more people can be involved thanks to convenience!
With some rare exceptions, masks are no longer required for students, staff or visitors in CBE schools and workplaces.
We will be supporting and respecting personal choice- to wear masks or not.  Staff will monitor for and address any discrimination or conflict related to choices for mask use.   We remind students to let teachers know if they are experiencing issues.   We're a team and here to help you child!
As part of Step 2, schools are no longer required to cohort students. This shift does not mean schools need to re-design current timetabling or classroom structures.   We've had a lot of change and kids need some stability!   Schools may choose to retain aspects of schedules and set-ups for the remainder of the school year to avoid learning disruption.
Staying Home When Sick and Mandatory Isolation The Daily Health Checklist  remains in place and the mandatory requirements to isolate if someone has tested positive for COVID-19 have not changed.
 
Happy Items:
We want to take this moment to define “happy".   Being happy means enjoying school.   It means students find personal interests at school, connections with teachers and peers, sports and athletics as well as option classes they particularly love. 
It also means being “engaged" in their learning.   Other than reading with your child, asking them “what did you learn today?" or “what are you finding interesting at school?" is important.   Or job is to turn students on to learning!  You as parents are vital in the education journey and we appreciate your engagement with students in their success.  
If you cannot meet or discuss academic progress with your child's teacher at parent-teacher interview times- don't worry!   We can always make time and reschedule to help you.   Please let us know- discussing issues or how we can help is always a priority.
 
Learning Items:
Covid restrictions being lifted offers some direct learning benefits.   We know that students learn from teachers and each other!   We are excited to return to classroom routines that allow for maximum benefit.   With Covid restrictions easing, students will have more opportunity to work in groups and use more spaces to provide even deeper learning opportunities.
