Principal's Message - February, March, April 2021

Dear Parents/Guardians,​

We have had another exciting start as we welcomed our students, parents and staff back to our Taradale Schoolhouse and to the beginning of our 2021 school term.  After attending online schooling for the first week back, it is always a pleasure to greet everyone after a break and to listen to the rhythm of our schoolhouse fall into place.  Thank you. The students said hello to their friends and then focused on their learning, remembering the first line of our Student Purpose Statement:
I come to Taradale School to learn.
It is my responsibility to learn.

I do not have the right to interrupt my own learning
or the learning of others:

In the classroom,
On the playground,
In the lunchroom,
On the bus.

This is my purpose.


During Teachers' Convention, educators are invited to attend numerous professional learning opportunities, which are organized by the Calgary City Teachers' Convention Association.  A variety of virtual  and small in person sessions are scheduled throughout the day on both Thursday, February 11 and Friday, February 12, 2021.  Teachers are able to personalize their learning and attend sessions, which align with their professional goals.

Some of the keynote speakers on the Teachers' Convention includes:

*Dr. Jody Carrington—Clinical Psychologist                         
*Adrienne Gear—Language Arts & Literacy
*Clara Hughes—Olympic Medalist                                    
*Peter Mansbridge
*Carol Anne Tomlinson                                                           
*Dr. Jane Goodall

Most Sincerely,
acki Mclaren
