Teacher Pages & Blogs

Looking for details on what students in a particular class have been learning? See our Teacher Pages & Blogs section. You’ll find news and updates authored by our teaching staff. It’s a great way for parents to get a classroom view of various teaching and learning activities, including some shining examples of our student achievements.

Alberta Learning - A Parent Resource

This resource will provide you with a better understanding of Alberta’s curriculum and related information for your child. This tool can help you discover what your child is learning, how they’re assessed and what resources are available to help them be successful from Kindergarten to Grade 12. You can also find "Grade At A Glance" documents for each grade level in PDF format under "Resources".

Changes to Homeroom Lists 

Our teachers have worked hard to create balanced class lists and provide students with the best possible complementary course selections. Because of this, we will not be moving students into new classes except in extenuating circumstances. We know that school start up can be hard on adolescents if they do not know anyone on the first day. Thus, we have planned some activities that will help students make connections during the first few weeks of school. You can help by discussing with your child how they may handle a challenging social situation where they feel they do not know anyone. Share strategies that your child can use to make new friends and reassure them that many students have these same feelings on the first day but that it will get better. 

We believe strongly in the parent-teacher partnership in support of student success. Parents are encouraged to check the teacher blogs regularly and to contact their child’s teachers by phone or e-mail at any time during the school year to discuss student progress.
