May 15 Update
Dear Families, 

I hope you are all feeling healthy and safe heading into the May long weekend. We are moving into our third month of the pandemic and it looks like next week May 21 we may see a bit more activity.  I have enjoyed my last two Walk and Talk's and it has been great and very helpful reconnecting with parents.  I encourage you to join me at 10:00 Wednesday's on the front steps.  There have been a number of announcements lately regarding the budget and transportation.  I encouage you to visit the CBE website and this website for this new information. Our administration team is currently working on the budget for next year and your input is valuable. 
Grade 4 legacy paintings

​We have reorganized our school and we would like to display Grade 4 student flora and fauna paintings in our staff room and in our hallways.  We would like to invite our Grade 4 students to contribute a painting of flora or fauna for us to put up and display for the 2020-2021 school year.  We are thinking of the emerging Spring gardens in Calgary and of all the indigenous plants and flowers that grow around Alberta.  The school is open every Tuesday from 9-12 for you to drop them off.  Thank you in advance for these creative pieces and we look forward to seeing them by the end of June.  

 New Acting Assistant Principal Sheri Bullough

Welcome to our school Sheri Bullough!  Sheri comes from the All Boys School as our new Acting Assistant Principal.  Her background is in math and literacy and resource.  She speaks french fluently and we are very very luck to have her.  Next week she will send out her letter of introduction.  Welcome Sheri!

 School Council Dialogue and Engagement Session:

Tuesday at 6:30 we will be having a School Council Skype session in order to engage and to discuss the organisation and deployment of staff for the 2020-2021 school year.  Your input is needed and I will be sending out a link to all of those on Parent Council.  If you would like to join this session, please e-mail us.  

Wednesday Walk and Talk 

Please e-mail the school or tweet "talk" if you would like to join me Wednesday on the front steps for a 35 - 45 minute walk and talk with the Principal at 10:00AM. I look forward to meeting you and to talking about your ideas.  

Lastly, I would like to thank our parents who are currently looking after our Naturalization Area on the West side of the school.  It looks beautiful and the plants and green leaves and needles are coming out thanks to all of your hard work watering them. Thank you also Lindsay Bleik for all your hard work with the bikiing and walking to school you have initiated.   We have a great community at our school and it shows.  Take care and get out and exercise and enjoy the nice weather, 

Christine Stiles
Acting Principal
