Our staff would like to thank all families who participated in our online conferences. We hope that you were able to see a glimpse of what your children have been learning over the past 3 months.
Another way to see what is happening in classrooms is through your child's teacher's Google Classroom. Here you will find a weekly update as well as class activities in the Classwork section. These activities are available for children who need to stay home due to illness or isolation and are a great starting point for a conversation with your child when you ask “What did you do at school today?" and the answer is “I forget".
Google Classroom will be the way that you and your child will access learning at home the week of January 4 to 8, 2021. Before the winter break, we will send specific information so you will know what to expect that week. Please make sure that you know how to log in to the Google Classroom with your child's CBE Gmail address. Teachers will spend the next 2 weeks making sure that students know how to access their Google Classroom. Please email your child's teacher if you need help.
Through the month of November, teachers have been working together during Professional Learning Community (PLC) time on Friday afternoons on shaping our School Development Plan. In this plan, we set goals for our students to meet outcomes from Alberta Education and the Calgary Board of Education. Please visit this link to see our plan for the next 3 years with a literacy goal of developing oral proficiency (verbally communicating comprehension) and a wellness goal on respect and a report on our results from the 2019-2020 school year: SDP and Results.
December is always an exciting month at school. Although circumstances are different this year, we are finding ways to have shared experiences that highlight our motto: Better Together/Meilleur Ensemble. We are proud to be collecting food for the Mayor's food drive and all students are welcome to participate in the following school-wide events:
- Festive Sweater day on December 14
- Christmas Story day on December 16
- Pajama Day on December 18
We want to let our school community know that Mrs. Kivi is doing well and will be returning from her medical leave on January 4, 2021. Mrs. Larson will also be back at school on January 4. We thank Mrs. Kathy McIntyre for stepping in and keeping our office running smoothly.
