Dear Balmoral Families,
Welcome to the New Year at Balmoral TLC! Thank you for ensuring
students arrived on time for classes after having some well-deserved
rest and rejuvenation time over the last two weeks. It was a chilly start with
some of our students arriving dressed for warmer weather. Please make note
of the colder weather in the coming weeks and make sure students
are prepared for outdoor activities in weather above -20 degrees C (the CBE
standard for outdoor activities).
A reminder to parents to confirm that they have their MyCBE
account set up and functioning as we will not be printing report cards at
the end of January. Assessments continue throughout the school year and a
summative Report Card will be generated for January 30th, which will
be visible through the parent portal of PowerSchool. Marks that are
normally visible in PowerSchool have currently been turned off as
teachers are beginning to finalize report cards, adding comments to be
available for viewing on January 30th.
If you know of anyone interested in enrolling their children in Balmoral
School’s TLC program, please have them join us for an information evening,
January 15th @ 6:00 pm at the school. We will use the
Lottery system to decide which children are able to attend should
registration numbers be over capacity for our school. The lottery
is held on the 12th in February.
As we begin to prepare for High School transitions, Grade 9 students
often find themselves under some pressure. I would encourage everyone to
continue to strive to achieve their best, keeping their goals in sight. We
will be working with our designated High Schools to ensure that students are as
prepared as possible for transitioning. I want to remind
families that the upcoming report card will guide our recommendations for
programs and placements. All of our Grade 9 students have been given the
opportunity to attend High School tours, and information about alternative
programs such as IB/AP are available directly through the high
school. Please check which high school you are designated to by
visiting CBE.AB.CA, find a school: https://www.cbe.ab.ca/schools/find-a-school/Pages/default.aspx
Thanks to all parents who generously gifted teachers/staff with treats
and offerings before the holidays. Although not necessary, your gestures are an
appreciated recognition of the rewarding work that our staff do every day, here
at Balmoral TLC.
Wishing you all a successful and healthy year in 2020!
Principal, Balmoral Traditional Learning Centre
Do you know what to do when your child isn’t feeling well? We have pulled together resources from government and AHS to help #WeAreCBE families understand what they are required to do and when their child may return to school https://t.co/hmX7kjjwrH #yycbe https://t.co/BJ5Nl3GPqA
The Alberta School Councils' Association is conducting a survey to measure the “pandemic pulse” in the province. Families with children in K-12 are invited to participate. The survey will take about 15 minutes and closes on Friday, Nov. 6 https://t.co/GQggL7IRT0 https://t.co/ezYmUarRMj
