December 2019

December is a month of giving at Highwood School.  To support community organizations such as the Mustard Seed and the Calgary Food Bank, we are having the 10 Days of Giving campaign.  For 10 school days, we are encouraging students to donate a different item every day.  Together we can make a difference!

The donation schedule is as follows:
 
Monday, December 2: soup (cans, cartons, or dry packs of soup)
Tuesday, December 3: dry pasta, noodles, rice, Mac and Cheese
Wednesday, December 4: toothpaste and/or toothbrushes
Thursday, December 5: soap
Friday, December 6: socks (all ages, all sizes)
Monday, December 9: toiletry items (brush, comb, lip balm, small tissue packages, band-aids, lotion)
Tuesday, December 10: shampoo and/or conditioner
Wednesday, December 11: canned meat, fish, beans
Thursday, December 12: canned fruit and vegetables
Friday, December 13: any food item!!!
 
December is when students receive their first report card of the school year.  It is important for you to understand the 4-1 achievement indicators that all CBE K-9 teachers use to grade students.  This year, the indicators are better defined and provide a clearer explanation of your child’s understanding.

Report cards will be distributed to students on Friday, December 13 and Parent-Teacher Conferences will take place on Wednesday, December 18 from 4:00-8:00 pm and Thursday, December 19 from 8:15 am - 5:15 pm. We encourage you to go online on December 10 starting at 9:00 am and book an interview time through your My CBE/PowerSchool Account. Students do not have school on Thursday, December 19 and Friday, December 20.  Winter break goes from December 21 to January 5, with classes resuming on January 6, 2020.
 
Have a safe and happy holiday with family and friends!
Christine Cheung, Principal
