May and June have been very busy months at Erin Woods School. The warm spring air is drawing more classrooms outside to learn. Our students continue their regular learning and while the days are getting longer, and warmer, we continue to focus on student progress as we begin to see the end of this year ahead.
As a school leadership team, along with teachers, we have been spending much of April and May preparing and planning for the 2022-2023 school year.
As we begin to prepare for our upcoming year, we are creating our organization for learning based on enrolment. The initial school projections that we received from Community Engagement and Operational Planning are as follows:
KG - 48 students
Grade 1 – 51, 2 – 46, 3 – 49, 4 – 49, 5 - 62 students
Bridges program - 16
Our total projection for the 2022-2023 school year is 321 students.
We continue to frame our work and celebrate our students, with the Calgary Board of Education RESULTS in mind.
The RESULTS are the Board of Trustees' vision for CBE students:
* Academic Success * Citizenship * Mega End—High School Completion * Personal Development * Character
Within this newsletter you will find information on how you can support this process and what our initial thoughts are around school organization. Please see the section entitled “Looking Ahead for 2022-23".
We come to learn is our central purpose. All decisions made at the school, including organization are based on overall student learning. In June we will be working on the class lists for next year.
Typically, students love to be challenged. As summer is approaching, seeking out time for students to relax and enjoy activities that are not “screen-time-related" is very important. Families are urged to make plans early to attend summer events designed to engage students over the upcoming summer months. MONDAY, AUGUST 15TH is the first day of school. Our Back-To-School information will be updated on our website. Class and teacher assignments will be announced. School calendars and school hours, forms and other school information will be sent home on the first day of school.
The school office will re-open for new student registrations Wednesday, August 10, 2022
