We take great pride in keeping a tidy school; both inside and out. We ask all our students to be good citizens by putting garbage and recycling where it belongs, and helping to keep our classrooms and playground clean. We have green bins for composting and students are able to throw orange and banana peels, paper towels, tissues, apple cores and fruit pits - basically anything organic - into the green bins.
Also, a reminder that smoking is not permitted on CBE property. Parents and family members may not smoke anywhere outside of the school. This includes sidewalks. Your cooperation is both appreciated and expected. Parents are also reminded that the school compounds and playground areas are a "No Dogs" area with signs as per City Bylaws.
Dropping Off Your Children
Please remember that our BUS, NO STOPPING zone extends from the crosswalk in front of the school all the way to the lamp post at the south east corner of the school yard. We have five school busses and two daycares with full vans needing to drop off and pick up students in that zone. The zone is well marked with three signs.
Parents are able to stop and drop off children to the north of the main crosswalk in front of the school and after the lamp post. Parents are also able to park on the other side (northbound) of Temple Drive, though we request that you not park in front of driveways. Additional parking options are on Templegreen Road to the north of the school and Templeton Circle to the east. Access from Templeton Circle is via the walkway that leads directly to the crosswalk that our patrollers monitor.
Playground Rules & Expectations
As a school, we consistently review our playground rules and expectations with our students as needed throughout the school year. Please note that supervision on the playground begins at 8:50 each morning. Over the lunch hour, teachers are on supervision for students who stay for lunch. Students who do not stay for lunch are asked to arrive between 12:45 and 12:50. Finally, there is no formal supervision of the playgrounds after school.
Please take a moment to review these safety expectations with your child(ren):
- If it looks unsafe, we will ask you to stop.
- Rocks and snow stay on the ground.
- Stay inside school boundaries at all times.
- At recess, students in Grades 1 & 2 need to stay on the Division 1 side and play on the Division 1 playground. Students from Grades 3 to 6, play on the
Division 2 playground and in the Division 2 fields and compounds.
- Remember that our small part of the Rocky Mountains is a part of nature. You need to be safe when you climb on the rocks – hands out of pockets and shoes tied up properly. No running or tag near the “150”. All students can play on the rocks.
- Don’t forget our buddy benches near each of the playgrounds. These are great places to make new friends and reconnect with old ones.
Below are the School Playground Expectations we share with the students (they are also in the student agendas):
The School Outdoor Play Spaces:
Good “Anniegator” citizens always take turns and do everything they can to help everyone enjoy the play spaces safely! Remember, play safe!
The play spaces are still part of the school and we have the same expectations for students when they are outside as when in class.
One person on the slide at a time; feet first.
Forwards only on the fireman’s pole.
One way only on the glider.
One way only on the rocks - take turns.
Use the bike rack doors for bathroom access.
The south playground is for Division One students; the west playground is for Division Two students.
Respect nature and living things.
Use of School Equipment, Open Spaces & Play Areas
Students are expected to use school and recreational equipment appropriately. We trust students to make sensible choices and to play games that are safe and that will not potentially endanger themselves or others. Students are expected to respect the rights of participants in organized games and not to disrupt the activity.
