Principal's Message

Principal Message September

Dear Erin Woods School community,
Welcome back to Erin Woods School for the 2022/23 school year!
As we begin this school year I am so proud of our Erin Woods Community, which has created a respectful environment for valuing education and learning! We are looking forward to an exciting year.
One of the most significant ways parents can make a meaningful difference in the lives of their children is through school councils. By attending school council meetings, you will discover new and exciting ways to contribute to the education of students in our school.
The first meeting of the 2022/2023 school year is being held on Wednesday, September 21st at 6:30pm. All parents and guardians of students attending Erin Woods School are encouraged to attend. This meeting is our Annual General Meeting and there are several board positions that need to be filled. A full board is required to hold our position with AGLC for the next casino fundraiser. This fundraiser, of up to $60,000.00, supports your child's school with various equipment, technology and activities throughout the school year.
Your contribution to our school council can be as much or as little as you feel comfortable giving! We meet 7 times per year where all ideas and suggestions are welcome. Through your commitment we can ensure that, Erin Woods School students have a rewarding school year!    See you on September 21st! Our meeting will be on-line and the link for you to join is
        THANK YOU!
 
As a school community, we look forward to continuing to frame our work this year with the Calgary Board of Education Mission, Results and Values:
Mission - Each student, in keeping with his or her individual abilities and gifts, will complete high school with a foundation of learning necessary to thrive in life, work and continued learning.
Results - Academic Success Citizenship Personal Development Character
Values - Students come first. Learning is our central purpose. Public education serves the common good.
 Visitors
All parents and visitors are required to use the front door of the school and check into the office upon arrival. We welcome all parents and guardians into our school this year to volunteer
 
“Phone in for Safety" Program – 24 hrs
It is very important for parents and the school to know that each child has arrived at school safely each day. Please call 403 777-8140, ext. 1 to leave a message, if your child is going to be absent or late for school.
Please provide us with the following information:
Student Last Name and First Name (Please spell)
Student's Teacher or Homeroom
Reason for absence 
 
Safety of personal items
Due to many incidents over personal items in school students are not to bring the following items:
·      Phones
·      Toys
·      Stuffies
·      Money
·      Pokemon cards
·      Bikes and Scooters to school without a lock
With many personal items they may get lost, look like someone else's, or be broken. This is very disruptive to your child's day and we can not guarantee the safety of personal items. 
 
Lunchroom and School supply fees
GRADE 1 TO 5 LUNCH SUPERVISION2022-2023Noon Supervision/per year (if required – must be registered)$285.00Drop-In/per student per day$ 5.00School Supply Fee Kindergarten

Both lunchroom and school fees can be paid on your MyCBE/Power School account.
Waivers
No child is ever denied access to an education in the CBE because of an inability to pay. The CBE has a waiver process for families who cannot afford to pay the fees.  Visit our Waivers page for more information and the documents required as proof of income or extraordinary circumstance.
 
Medical Alert Snacks and Lunches
We would like to thank all of our Erin Woods families for providing their children with healthy, nutritious snacks and lunches on a daily basis. Families are reminded to discuss with their children the importance of only eating their own snacks and lunches to prevent the sharing of food. We have students in our school who have severe allergies to peanuts, cashews and other food sources which if eaten could create a medical difficulty. Please minimize the amount of peanut products in your child's snacks and lunches. Working together to teach our students to eat only their own food and not sharing, as well as to be aware and sensitive to each other's allergies, is key in maintaining a safe environment for all of our Erin Woods students.

 PARKING
We are experiencing a greater problem with parking this year, please be aware of the parking guidelines for the safety of your children.
·      Please do not park in the bus zone in front of the school at anytime.
·      Please do not go into the school parking lot to drop your child off. During peak hours many staff are coming and going and it is very difficult to see children between cars and for staff to find their parking spot for the day. The parking lot is the property of the Calgary Board of Education and is not accessible to the public.
·      Please ensure your child uses the cross walk to cross the street. Again if they are darting between cars in the middle of the street they could possibly be seriously hurt.
Thank you for observing these requests for the safety of all!
