Principal's Message

Convention

The annual Calgary City Teachers’ Convention is a time of solidarity for the profession.  It is a time in which teachers, administrators, and support staff take pause, gather in community with colleagues that they may not see throughout the year, and become inspired to be available for their students and to impact their lives in more meaningful ways. Because this Convention is virtual, the best we can achieve at a semblance of togetherness is reading the participant names and messages that pop up within the virtual sessions we attend. Notwithstanding the physical distance between us, members of the profession have much to reflect on this Convention.  We have been supporting students and families during a time of fear and uncertainty, while also tending to our own fears for self and loved ones. Standing strong in the hallways, offices, and classrooms (virtual or face-to-face) during a pandemic - that is taking longer than we dreaded it might - is a great test of our mettle.
Yet, the rewards are ever within easy reach.  The main office staff rejoices in hearing student laughter coming from the gymnasium as students enjoy a few luxurious days of indoor PE.  Classmates conspire on who to send secret Valentine gifts to. They take off their masks in a relieving break during music class, in which they can be well distanced throughout the spacious cafeteria.  They dash outdoors at lunch, even when frigidly cold, just to greet their friends who may be in another cohort.
We always knew that school was a process of socialization as much as it was an academic trajectory. In case we forgot, we receive these reminders on a daily basis.  School is becoming, in some cases, the only semblance of normalcy for us all in an otherwise dull and monotonous daily pattern. Dr. Michael Ungar, renowned Canadian researcher on resilience, spoke to educators during the Convention about the value of accountability, routine, and a sense of control in the lives of our students. We are offering that on a daily basis, whether through face-to-face or Hub learning.  Keynote speaker and bestselling author of the memoire, Educated, Tara Westhover, stated in her address that we do not only educate the mind.  We educate the whole person. The most we can do for every learner is affirm their sense of self, to have them know that we see them as individuals, and to model for them how they should be treated.  Westhover assured teachers that our students will draw on this source at later moments in their development towards adulthood.
We know this pandemic will end, and, if we attend to the right things in the right measure, our students can come through this with increased resilience, improved sense of identity, and a stronger connection to their community.  Let’s all continue to work towards that end together – at home and at school.
