Winter Weather Reminders
Dear Parents/Guardians,May and June will be very busy months at Taradale School. The weather warms and days get longer. The warm Spring air is drawing more classrooms outside to learn. Also, during these months, our students will experience outdoor learning through our Spring and Summer Wheel Medicine Walk. Our students continue their regular learning and while the days are getting longer, and warmer, we continue to focus on student progress as we begin to see the end of this year ahead.On the MoveWe know that some families may have plans to move away from this area. In this newsletter, you will find a section entitled “Looking Ahead for 2022—2023; Are You Moving?" (You do not need to notify us of students moving to Grade 5). Please advise the school as soon as possible if your family is moving out of the Taradale area as this will help us to prepare the documentation that is required for the next school as well as keep a current number of enrolled students as we begin to look at school organization. In order to organize the classes for next year, any information that you can share with us about students leaving Taradale School will be used to create well balanced classes for next year. School Organization As a school leadership team, along with teachers, we have been spending much of April and May preparing and planning for the 2022-2023 school year. As we begin to prepare for our upcoming year, we are creating our organization for learning based on enrolment. The initial school projections that we received from Community Engagement and Operational Planning are as follows: KG - 13s studentsGrade 1 and 2 - 273 studentsGrade 3 and 4 - 275 studentsProjection of 680 students Our total projection for the 2022-2023 school year is 680 students. We continue to frame our work and celebrate our students, with the Calgary Board of Education RESULTS in mind.The RESULTS are the Board of Trustees' vision for CBE students:* Academic Success * Citizenship * Mega End—High School Completion * Personal Development * CharacterWithin this newsletter you will find information on how you can support this process and what our initial thoughts are around school organization. Please see the section entitled “Looking Ahead for 2022-23".We come to learn is our central purpose. All decisions made at the school, including organization are based on overall student learning. In June we will be working on the class lists for next year. SUMMER PLANSTypically, students love to be challenged. As summer is approaching, seeking out time for students to relax and enjoy activities that are not “screen-time-related" is very important. Families are urged to make plans early to attend summer events designed to engage students over the upcoming summer months. Monday, August 15th is the first day of school. Our Back-To-School information will be updated on our website. Class and teacher assignments will be announced. School calendars and school hours, forms and other school information will be sent home on the first day of school. The school office will re-open for new student registrations Wednesday, August 10, 2022.Sincerely, Jacki McLaren Principal

As the days get chillier and the nights get longer, it is a great time to cozy up and connect with a good book or three. The CBE Literacy Team hosted Superintendent Holowka and Superintendent Pitman in a virtual system read aloud event today! #WeAreCBE https://t.co/tuciIcyTk3
