Dear Families of Annie Foote School,
What a thrill it was to meet many of you and your children last week. I am honoured to join the Annie Foote community where teachers and students alike are excited to begin their learning journey together.
I am originally from Saskatchewan but moved to Calgary in 1992 to begin my teaching career with the Calgary Board of Education. My husband and I have three young adult sons who I am proud to say are graduates of the CBE. I taught at two middle schools before becoming an Assistant Principal at Falconridge School and most recently at Elboya School. In these settings, I learned how passionate I am about creating conditions for success for our youngest learners.
Annie Foote School (AFS) is home to students from both Temple and Skyview communities. I look forward to developing strong connections with all families to provide a safe, caring, welcoming and respectful place for children to thrive both academically and socially.
I believe in making myself visible and available to the school community. As such, I will be sending out a weekly email through Messenger to share information and key dates. I invite you to contact me through the school office or at email@example.com throughout the year.
Each new school year provides opportunities to reflect on our school motto “Learning for Life". I am anxious to collaborate with teachers, families and the community to provide opportunities for your children to engage in authentic experiences that will honour life-long learning.
Our two school busses will be parking directly in front of the school. Parents are asked to park along the school field on Temple Drive.
Our Grade 6 patrollers will be out assisting with the crosswalks soon. Until then, parents are asked to be mindful of students using the crosswalk and refraining from doing U-turns in front of the school. Student drop-off in the staff parking lot is not permitted.
Teachers ensure that Kindergarten to Grade 2 students see 'their adult' at dismissal. Each of our classes will line up at the beginning and the end of the day. To help teachers see you clearly, we ask that you remain behind the red pylons and wave to the teachers when they call your child's name.
