November Updates

It is very hard to believe that December and Winter Break are just around the corner in this school year.  Our staff and students have done an amazing job so far this year working together, learning together and ensuring that our school remains a safe and positive place to learn.  Thank you to each family as well for your commitment to partnering with our school and we genuinely know that these are challenging times as the pandemic continues.

We have finalized and published our School Development Plan (SDP) which will guide our work in not only this year but also in coming years.  We will be sharing more information about our progress toward our goals as the year progresses.  This plan has been posted here on our school website as well for your consideration.  If ever you have questions please do not hesitate to reach out to us.

Students at our school have had a number of opportunities this year including working alongside Knowledge Keeper Darcy Turning Robe, participating in the Terry Fox Run, Orange Shirt Day, the first ever National Day for Truth and Reconciliation and Remembrance Day.  Students also have done amazing work in our school through our PROUD Ambassadors program as well as other opportunities in the year including the Grade 5/6 after school basketball opportunities supported by teachers. 

We will be adding two staff members (one full time and one part time) for the next four months to our school community as well to support students who are identified as At-Risk through assessments that were conducted earlier in the year with Alberta Education.  These staff will be working in our Grade 1/2 and Grade 3/4 communities of our school.   

We also would again like to pass along our appreciation for your engagement during the recent parent teacher conferences with nearly 75% of our families connecting with their child's classroom teacher!  This is amazing and we look forward to continuing this ongoing communication together around your child's learning at Falconridge School.

We wish you and your family as a safe and healthy remainder of 2021 and please do not hesitate to reach out to us at the school if you have any concerns or areas that we can offer support to your child!

Stay well.

Cheers,

​Jesse Hillas
