“Every problem has an opportunity for something good.
You just have to look for it.”
Each year, at Taradale School, we start with a special picture book that we bring to life, throughout the year, in our 30 classrooms.
This school year, 2018 – 2019, we started with the book,
What Do You Do With a Problem?
Yamada describes problems as an opportunity for something good which is the message we are sharing with our 660 students.
“When I got face to face with my problem, I discovered something.
My problem wasn’t what I thought it was.
I discovered it had something beautiful inside.”
We are excited about the beautiful opportunities
we will be creating this school year.
Our first 6 weeks have already been packed full of celebrations. Please ask your children, each day, to share their celebrations with you.
I am honored to begin my twelfth year as the Principal of our Taradale community, which has created a respectful tone of valuing education and appreciating the opportunity to learn. It is a privilege to be working with our Taradale families. I feel very fortunate.
As a school community, we look forward to continuing to frame our work this year with the Calgary Board of Education Mission, Results and Values:
Mission - Each student, in keeping with his or her individual abilities and gifts, will complete high school with a foundation of learning necessary to thrive in life, work and continued learning.
Results - Academic Success Citizenship Personal Development Character
Values - Students come first. Learning is our central purpose. Public education serves the common good.
With our 660 students, our September student enrollment is:

With this enrollment number, the Calgary Board of Education sent a letter home to our parents on September 15, 2009 stating, “….due to continued enrollment growth at Taradale School, the school is at capacity and will continue to be capped.”
