Principal's Message

Nov 29-Dec 3 Message


Dear Keeler Families,
Field Trips
Our Grade 1 students were the first Keeler students to go on a field trip in almost 2 years!  It felt so great to leave the school and get out and explore in nature.  We went to Fish Creek Park on Monday and Wednesday and had so much fun using our senses to learn about who and what lives in the park.  Check out some photos of the trip on Twitter @KeelerSchool
All other grades will be attending an offsite experience this year – stay tuned for grade specific information.  Thank you to School Council for financially supporting field trips.  School Council has committed to paying for all off site experiences to ensure that all students participate and families do not have to pay.  
Learning Conversations
Learning Conversations were a huge success. Thank you to all the families that connected with their child's teacher to discuss student progress and next steps. Over 80% of families met with Keeler teachers. If you were unable to meet with your child's teacher, it is not too late.  Please email or call the school and we will help you set up a meeting.
Construction Updates
We are so happy to share that the last two classes moved into their new classroom spaces today!  Ms. Sergent and Ms. McPherson's Grade 3 students are now downstairs.  Please see attached photos.  We can't wait until we can invite families inside our school to see the new learning spaces.
The painting of the common areas (gym, hallways, learning commons) will begin this week and we just found out that we have been approved to have our classrooms painted also!  This is fantastic news.  The inside of our school is going to look brand new very soon.
School Development Plan
Our School Development Plan has been finalized.  You can see it on our school's website. Our School DevelopmentPlan outline's this year's literacy, numeracy and well-being focus.  
Spark
We are excited to be starting a Spark program every morning in the gym from 8:00-8:20.  This will be an opportunity for identified students to release some energy in a structured way that targets gross motor skills as well as promoting self-regulation breathing and calming strategies.  Teachers will identify students who will benefit from this activity.
Dress for the Weather
As the weather begins to change, please send your student to school with appropriate clothing.  Students are expected to go outside for lunch recess until the temperature dips below -20 degrees Celsius as per CBE direction.  
School Hours
Reminder that school hours are 8:00am-2:30pm Monday to Thursday and 8:00am-12:00pm on Fridays.  Please arrive at your grade designated doors before 8:00am to ensure that your child is present for important morning announcements and instruction.  If you arrive after 8:00am please use the front doors as all grade team doors will be locked for the safety and security of all students and staff.
Parking and Drop Off
With an increase in student population and the addition of 3 school buses, parking and drop off continue to be very busy.  Please remember that the staff parking lot is not a designated drop off zone and please do not park or drop off in bus designated areas.  You may have noticed an increased Calgary Police presence in the morning and afternoon.  This is due to the increased concerns from our neighbours.  
School Council 
Upcoming School Council Dates – December 7th at 6pm – virtual. If you are interested in attending please email Ms.Taylor at lataylor@cbe.ab.ca and we will send you the link.
