1. Library Learning Commons Final Book Return
Our Library Assistant Mrs. Parshina would like to remind all students and families at Marion Carson School that library books were due back today, June 16, 2023. If your child continues to have a book needing to be returned, a final letter stating which book is missing will be sent home this week. Books lost or not returned by June 23 will be charged to your MyCBE account.
2. Math Contest Success!
In the Canada wide Byron-Germain Math Contest, Marion Carson School achieved 5th place out of 239 participating schools in Canada, comprising 32,000 students. We also secured first place in Alberta! What amazing achievements by the students of Marion Carson School and staff. Looking back in history, this appears to be our highest national placement! Participants from both the Community and Mandarin Bilingual programs from the Math Club competed for our school. In total, 24 of the 27 participating students scored over the Canadian average achieving levels of distinction!
3. Sports Day – June 21
This Wednesday, June 21st is our Sport's Day. Students will come together to celebrate their learning throughout the year focussing on fundamental movement skills as well as Indigenous Education. Students are invited to wear sport-themed clothing from their favourite sports team or after school sports activity. School Council has provided a snack of an individual bag of chips and juice box. Should you have any questions about the ingredients in the snack due to dietary concerns or prefer that these not be consumed at school by your child, please email your child's teacher by June 20th.
4. Earn, Burn and Learn School Contest
Thank you all for running or volunteering as part of the 2023 Servus Calgary Marathon! We hope you had a fantastic time and that you'll join in again next year. If you enjoyed this year's run club, we encourage you to continue to be active and consider joining a race or two in Calgary, or join us by participating in one of our school's future running events.
Although we did not win first place, we're thrilled to announce that we were second place in our school category. Congratulations to all participants, with special recognition to Foothills Academy, Varsity Acres School and John G. Diefenbaker High School who won their category by accumulating the most points for distance run and volunteer shifts completed.
5. Fun Lunch- Friday, June 23
The last fun lunch of this school year, which is on June 23, 2023 with Subway, is now live on the healthy hunger website! https://healthyhunger.ca/ The deadline for ordering will be June 18, 2023 midnight!
Please note, Fun Lunch on Friday, June 23 is being offered to Grade 1-6 classes and ONLY Group B kindergarten classes as this is the only kindergarten class that will be in attendance over the nutrition break on that day. Thank you for supporting this fundraiser throughout the school year.
6. Outstanding/ Unpaid Fees
With two weeks of school left for students we continue to have a significant amount of unpaid fees from field trips and events from this school year. Please log onto your MyCBE account and ensure that you have paid all fees for this school year. We appreciate your prompt attention to this over the coming days as we work to finalize our year end.
Mr. D. Turner
Principal, Marion Carson School
