Dear Killarney Families,                                                                         Nov 16, 2020


We had another lovely week of learning and honoured our veterans with a moving Remembrance Day virtual assembly. Orchestrated by our talented Mrs. Harvie, our assembly began with our acknowledgement of the land, a signing of Oh Canada, and the children demonstrating their gratitude for the service of others through a choral reading of In Flanders Field. A reminder to walk around the perimeter of the school to take a peek at the artwork in the windows.

The lost and found tables will be placed in the courtyard area on Wed/ Fri for the month of November.  There are many items so be sure to peruse the tables.  A way to help avoid lost items is to label your child's belongings so we can be sure they are returned.


In response to our increasing Covid cases in Calgary, we are increasing our safety protocols to ensure we are doing all we can in support of the health and safety of our school community.  We ask that parents remain outside the school at all times. If your child is late to arrive please ring the bell to the left of the front door and remain outside while your child enters the school.  If you are picking up your child early at dismissal, call ahead so we can contact your child and have him/her/them ready and once you arrive, ring the bell to the left of the front door and remain outside while we walk your child to you.  Parents are no longer asked to sign their child out in the sign out book.  We thank you for your understanding and your vigilance as we navigate through this unprecedented time.


Killarney Parent Council meets on Tuesday @ 6:30.  Ms. Thiessen and Mrs. Neitz are our teacher reps and will share some of the great things happening in Rooms 11 and 14.  Please use the link to access the meeting: Title: Killarney Parent Council Meeting

Please see the message below from our MAPSS representatives:

Hello Montessori families,

This year, MAPSS (Montessori Alternative Public School Society) has several key Board member positions available and we are looking to fill them immediately. 

Are you interested in participating on a Board that supports all 3 CBE Montessori schools in Calgary?

MAPSS is holding our AGM on November 19th at 7PM where Board members will be elected.  Please join us by clicking:

Join us and we will introduce you to the Board members, share details of Board positions so you can learn if being a Board member is a great fit for you.  
Key positions include President, Secretary, Treasurer, Charitable Director and Communication roles. 

MAPSS recognizes our three diverse Montessori schools as one Montessori family. Our intention is to have families from each school represented on the Board as we continue to raise funds that go directly to all three Montessori schools. 

Please consider joining us for the AGM on November 19th at 7PM.

 If you are unable to attend our AGM and want more information or are interested in a position, please email and a Board member will contact you before the AGM. 


We also wish to extend our heartfelt thank-you to MAPSS for providing each student with a rubberized working mat so they can work on the floor with the Montessori materials.


We have a PD on Friday so students are not in attendance at school.


Our Montessori values are always grounded in developing the whole child and we do that in our curricular and extended curricular contexts including: the Cosmic education curriculum, Peace Education, and Service work. One of the ways we help to build resilience in our children is to highlight and encourage our part in the larger picture. Our extended curricular contexts are what allow us to grow our own strengths and to better realize who we are. Maria Montessori articulated, “We shall walk together on this path of life, for all things are part of the universe and are connected with each other to form one whole unity." —taken from To Educate the Human Potential. Although we are no longer able to participate in our monthly Friday service work, we can still do what we can to help others in a different way. We have attached a video by Wab Kinew and regardless of anyone's political preference, we appreciate his message of each of us contributing to the greater community as an act of love.


With Gratitude,

Bonnie and Lucene​
