Wednesday Principal Update - January 25

Dear DGS Families,  

This week is the last week of Semester 1 Exploratories for students. It has been wonderful to see the variety of project work and learning experiences students have had over the last 5 months. Students will review their Semester 2 Exploratories with their homeroom teachers at the end of this week in preparation for Monday. We will not be making changes to student selections, unless there are very exceptional circumstances at play. In part, this is because we have experienced a significant increase in student enrolment since September, and we have worked carefully to ensure we have been able to offer all students an opportunity to access spaces in high demand classes. 

Winter Concert 

Our instrumental music program is pleased to present our 2023 Winter Concert on February 2. All DGS students will be attending afternoon performances of the concert on this day so that they can celebrate the success of their siblings and friends. The evening performance is reserved for parents, guardians and family members who are not DGS students. This is to support there being enough space for our audience. DGS students who are not in the instrumental music program will not be admitted to the evening performance. There is no charge to attend this event. Doors will open 30 minutes before the performance. Full details for the performance will be sent in a separate message. 

Yearbooks     

Yearbooks for 2022-23 – must be PREPURCHASED prior to February 10, 2023. You will need to self-add the yearbook to your account following these simple steps:     

1. Login to your MyCBE account, using your username and password     

2. Click the box “Fees, Waivers & Service Registration”      

3. Select your student     

4. Click on “School Based Optional Fees”     

5. Click on the box “Yearbook 2022/23”     

6. Click “Add to Cart” and proceed to payment   

Stay Safe, Stay Off Storm Ponds 

Before heading outside to play this winter, The City of Calgary wants to remind all of us to be safe while enjoying outdoor skating. City of Calgary and community-designated outdoor skating rinks are open, offering fun, free skating for all skill levels. Rinks maintained by The City are checked daily for ice thickness and quality, and surfaces are flooded as needed to make sure they’re safe for skating. Prior to lacing up, it’s important to remember that not all ice surfaces are safe. While our community storm ponds may look inviting, the City of Calgary wants to remind us that recreational activities are not allowed on them. Storm ponds play an important role, providing protection from overland flooding while returning cleaner water back to the river, but they have hidden hazards that make them dangerous to people and pets. Rapidly changing water levels cause unstable air gaps and quickly changing depths. The ponds also have sediment and contaminants (e.g., bacteria, fertilizers, pesticides, vehicle fluids, metals and road salt) that are collected as water travels across properties, streets, and roads that can weaken the ice. That’s why it’s not safe to skate, walk or play on storm ponds. 

Keeping Sick Students Home     

We ask that if your child is sick, please keep them home from school, as we want to see all of our community make it through cold and flu season safely. Please continue to phone or email the school each day that your child will be absent, with the reason for the absence (examples: illness, medical appointment, etc.). Teachers will continue to post assignment basics in Google Classroom by 4:00 each day for students to access.  

Got Lunch?  

We remain a closed campus at lunchtime. We want to remind families that students need to bring their lunch or have it ordered through Healthy Hunger for distribution through the servery. We do have a variety of lower cost items for purchase at the server including Cheese Buns, Ham and Cheeses Buns, and Chocolate Chip Buns from Glamorgan Bakery. Hot water is available for soup through the servery. We are not able to provide access to microwaves for student use. As a reminder, we are not able to receive Skip the Dishes, Door Dash, Uber Eats, etc. in the main office. The driver will be asked to return the delivery to the restaurant.

Wednesday Principal Update - January 18

​Dear DGS Families,  

Our first week back has been very productive. Students and teachers have settled into routines really well. As an experiment, I tried using emerging ChatGPT Technology to generate one section of my weekly principal’s message. Can you spot the topic that was written by AI? (And I will definitely see the irony and humour if that’s your favourite part of my message!) With so much talk about the potential impact of ChatGPT on academic integrity, it’s important for us as adults to experiment with what’s possible. Our teachers will continue to have conversations with students about how to leverage new and emerging technologies ethically and appropriately. 

  

DGS Badminton Try-out Schedule  

Please see the attachment for all the details for grades 6-9 badminton try-outs schedules this month. As a reminder, our Badminton and Basketball Seasons have been switched, so as to ensure we have sufficient referees for the 2023 basketball season.

Toy Mountain     

We are pleased to announce that our 2022 Toy Mountain cash donations totaled $297.60. Thank you so much for your generosity!

Social Media Safety 

Social media is a powerful tool that can be used to connect with others, share information and ideas, and express oneself creatively. However, it's important for adolescents to understand the importance of being safe and responsible while using social media. Adolescents should be educated about the potential risks of sharing personal information, posting inappropriate content, and interacting with strangers online. They should also be reminded of the importance of privacy settings and how to use them effectively. It's also important for adolescents to understand the potential consequences of cyberbullying and to be aware of the resources available if they or someone they know is a victim. Parents and caregivers can play a vital role in promoting social media safety by monitoring their child's online activity, having open and honest conversations about online behavior, and setting guidelines for social media use. It's also important for adolescents to learn to balance their online and offline life, and to take breaks from technology.

Wednesday Principal Update - January 9

Dear DGS Families, 

  

We are BAAAAAAAAAAACK! Did you miss us? We missed your kiddos, and we are so glad to all be back together. This week’s Principal Message is coming to you on Monday so that you feel like you have all of the information you need to get your family through this week! We will return to our regular Wednesday schedule next week. 

DGS Badminton Try-out Schedule 

Please see the attachment for all the details for grades 6-9 badminton try-outs schedules this month. As a reminder, our Badminton and Basketball Seasons have been switched, so as to ensure we have sufficient referees for the 2023 basketball season. 

BadmintonTryoutschedule2023-new.pdf 

Toy Mountain    

We want to thank EVERYONE for their generous donations of toys and gifts for toy mountain AND for their cash donations from our annual Hot Chocolate Fundraiser that took place on Thursday December 22. We will be able to share our fundraising total in next week’s update. A very heartfelt thank you to our School Council and Parent Fundraising Society for sponsoring and preparing all of the Hot Chocolate needed for 640 students!!!!    

Away for the Day- Our Commitment for 2023 

New Year, Old Expectations! Today, teachers will take time with homerooms to review and reinforce our Away for the Day Cell Phone Policy. 

Phones are in lockers from 8:30am to 2:55pm daily, including lunchtime. This allows students to focus on their learning, their human connections with others, their ability to self-regulate in the absence of technology and minimizes background distraction. A really good read related to this is Johann Hari’s 2022 book Stolen Focus: Why You Can’t Pay Attention and How to Think Deeply Again. (Important: Hari writes in a more casual register, and he is a bit sweary- his anecdotes may not resonate with all readers; however, his core message is food for thought. It’s also important to note that his insights about “attention” are NOT a commentary on ADHD or ADD or people with those neurodiversities.)  

Technology and Social Media are woven into the fabric of our world and it’s up to all of us to influence how we use it in a way that highlights the positives and offers protective factors to deal with the negatives. We ask that parents help us by not texting or calling their child during the day on their device. Should you need to speak to your student, please call the main office and we will be happy to help! 

Staff will work with students who have their phone out of their locker in a number of ways. This might include being asked to return the phone to their locker or being asked to pick their phone up at the end of the day from the main office or requesting that a parent come to the school to pick the phone up. We realize this last option is the least convenient, and we use it only when other responses have not changed behaviour with the phone. 

This is also a good time to remind families that we cannot be responsible for lost or stolen mobile devices or accessories such as earpods or smart watches. 

Keeping Sick Students Home    

We ask that if your child is sick, please keep them home from school, as we want to see all of our community make it through cold and flu season safely. Please continue to phone or email the school each day that your child will be absent, with the reason for the absence (examples: illness, medical appointment, etc.).

Wednesday Principal Update - Deccmber 21

Dear DGS Families, 

  

Welcome to the last Principal’s Message of 2022. Winter includes so many observances, festivals, celebrations and times of rest. To all of you participating in Hanukkah, Posadas, Winter Solstice, Yule, Tohji-Tasai, Christmas, Kwanzaa, Wren Day, Junkanoo, Gahambar Maidyarem, Omisoka, Hogmanay, New Year’s, St. Basil’s Day, Gantan-Sai, Three Kings Day, Coptic and Easter Orthodox Christmas, or you are entering a time of rest and quiet over the weeks to come, I wish you peace, comfort, and time with the people you love the most. 

This week, we have asked students to clean their lockers out and bring home all of their September to December treasures with them. This is your reminder to get them all to clean their back packs and lunch kits at home on Thursday so there are no extra-juicy January 8 surprises lurking! 

A huge congratulations to our Drama Society and their very successful four show run of The Shuddersome Tales of Poe. Our gift campaign for Toy Mountain ends tomorrow and we will have our annual Hot Chocolate Fundraiser, and as always, thank you so much for sharing where you can, to help our school make a difference in the greater Calgary community. Today is the draw for our 50/50 Raffle- the last time I checked, the take home jackpot was $2070! 

 DGS Badminton Try-out Schedule

Digital Citizenship and Social Media     

Recently, TikTok has become a source of complaint for our students. Trends encouraging students to “ship” (suggest a relationship) for their peers anonymously or rate one another have recently caused upset for members of our school community. Parents are strongly encouraged to check in with their children regularly around their social media use and presence. One of the challenges of platforms such as TikTok is that it is very difficult to have an account banned or removed when the creator of the account is not known. Which accounts does your child follow? How are they using the platform? How teens represent themselves on platforms such as TikTok and SnapChat can often follow them back to school and be the source of unwanted attention, conflict and harm. One thing we always should keep in mind as adults is that ultimately, the young person’s mobile device is registered to an adult who ultimately becomes responsible for what is on the device and how it is used. Another great resource is our digital citizenship presentation which can help guide a conversation around digital citizenship. Being an away-for-the-day school is one of the ways we work to alleviate some of the “digital complexities” students experience every day.    

This is also a good time to remind families that we cannot be responsible for lost or stolen devices or accessories such as earpods.

We have now printed copies of these forms for any families that still have not completed them and sent them home with your student.

These forms are a legal requirement and must be completed every school year. If you are having trouble completing them, please contact the office for assistance.    

 

Cold Weather Preparation    

With the onset of this cold weather, we want to make sure everyone has the same information around soft entry, lunchtime, etc. Soft Entry starts at 8:00. We do not open the doors before this time. As of 8:00, teachers are on supervision inside and outside of the building. At lunch, all students are expected to be outside for half of their lunchtime unless the temperature with windchill is colder than -20 degrees Celsius. Please ensure your child is dressed for the weather. We do provide outdoor supervision at lunchtime for students who are committed to being polar bears.   

 

Keeping Sick Students Home    

We ask that if your child is sick, please keep them home from school, as we want to see all of our community make it through cold and flu season safely. Please continue to phone or email the school each day that your child will be absent, with the reason for the absence (examples: illness, medical appointment, etc.).

Wednesday Principal Update - December 14

Dear DGS Families:  

‘Twas the second last week before Winter Break and all through the school,  

The teenagers were trying to keep their collective cool.  

Their artwork was hung in the hallways with care  

And their teachers were trying to not pull out their hair.  

Ms. Malette in her kerchief and Mr. Rushton in his cap,  

Could really have used a snack and a nap.  

Okay, that’s probably enough of that. We really are having a productive and enjoyable December. This week, Grade 6s are off on a fieldtrip related to Flight, our second optional active living fieldtrip for Beach Volleyball (Grade 9) runs on Friday and our Drama students will perform their show for live audiences a total of 4 times. We also say good-bye to our student teachers in Grade 6 and our Music Program this week- I want to thank them for their hard work with our students during their time with us. Next week our wrestling team participates in their second quad meet of the season and we have fun spirit activities for each day of the week.

Shuddersome Tales of Poe   

Students have been hard at work blocking scenes, building sets and props and memorizing the “Shuddersome Tales of Poe.” We are excited to host a public performance of the play on Thursday December 15, 2022, at 7:00pm. Tickets are $2 at the door- there are no advance sales for the evening performance. All students will have an opportunity to see the play on Friday December 16, when our performers take the stage for our in-house shows.

Got Lunch?   

We remain a closed campus at lunchtime. We want to remind families that students need to bring their lunch or have it ordered through Healthy Hunger for distribution through the servery. We do have a variety of lower cost items for purchase at the server including Cheese Buns, Ham and Cheeses Buns, and Chocolate Chip Buns from Glamorgan Bakery.

Wednesday Principal Update - December 7

Dear DGS Families,  


Not that anyone is counting, but did you know there are only 11 more get-ups until Winter Break? This year’s calendar is a bit different in that we finish off 2022 on Thursday the 22nd of December, with all school sites closed on Friday December 23. The next two and a half weeks are filled with learning, fieldtrip adventures and fine arts- we are thrilled to be able to share all of this with you.  

Shuddersome Tales of Poe  

Students have been hard at work blocking scenes, building sets and props and memorizing the “Shuddersome Tales of Poe.” We are excited to host a public performance of the play on Thursday December 15, 2022, at 7:00pm. Tickets are $2 at the door- there are no advance sales for the evening performance. All students will have an opportunity to see the play on Friday December 16, when our performers take the stage for our in-house shows.    

Toy Mountain  

This year, Grade 9 Leadership is organizing a Toy Mountain Donation Drive. Fundraising will run from December 8th to 22nd @ the DGS front foyer. Cash donations should be left with the front office. The goal of this fundraising drive is to make holiday dreams come true for less fortunate children by donating a new unwrapped toy, teen gift, or cash donation.  

Happy Holidays from the Grade Nine Leadership class!  

Spirit Week  

Grade 8 Leadership is thrilled to be organizing our Countdown to Winter Break Spirit Week! Here are the Spirit Week events:  

Friday Dec. 16th - Holiday Door Decor  

Monday Dec. 19th - Ugly Sweater and/or Hat Day  

Tuesday Dec. 20th - Twin Day (or Triplet Day… or Matchy-Matchy in a Group Day)  

Wednesday Dec. 21st - Pyjama Day  

Thursday Dec. 22nd - Movie Day

DGS Parent Fundraising Society  

The Dr. George Stanley Fundraising Society is excited to announce a 50/50 cash raffle! Please see the attachment for all the information you need to enter.

Yearbooks  

Yearbooks for 2022-23 – must be PREPURCHASED prior to Feb 10-2023. You will need to self-add the yearbook to your account following these simple steps:  

1. Login to your MyCBE/PowerSchool account, using your username and password  

2. Click the box “Fees, Waivers & Service Registration”   

3. Select your student  

4. Click on “School Based Optional Fees”  

5. Click on the box “Yearbook 2022/23”  

6. Click “Add to Cart” and proceed to payment  

Digital Citizenship and Social Media   

Parents are very much encouraged to check in with their children regularly around their social media use and presence. How teens represent themselves on platforms such as TikTok and SnapChat can often follow them back to school and be the source of unwanted attention, conflict and harm. One thing we always should keep in mind as adults is that ultimately, the young person’s mobile device is registered to an adult who ultimately becomes responsible for what is on the device and how it is used. Another great resource is our digital citizenship presentation which can help guide a conversation around digital citizenship. Being an away-for-the-day school is one of the ways we work to alleviate some of the “digital complexities” students experience every day. This is also a good time to remind families that we cannot be responsible for lost or stolen devices or accessories such as earpods.  

Demographic Verification Forms   

There are still a number of forms that are outstanding. Please sign into your MyCBE/PowerSchool account to complete these forms as soon as possible. If you are having trouble completing them, please contact the office for assistance. As a reminder, these forms are legally required to be completed each school year.   

Cold Weather Preparation  

With the onset of this cold weather, we want to make sure everyone has the same information around soft entry, lunchtime, etc. Soft Entry starts at 8:00. We do not open the doors before this time. As of 8:00, teachers are on supervision inside and outside of the building. At lunch, all students are expected to be outside for half of their lunchtime unless the temperature with windchill is colder than -20 degrees Celsius. Please ensure your child is dressed for the weather. We do provide outdoor supervision at lunchtime for students who are committed to being polar bears.   

Keeping Sick Students Home  

We continue to see a trend of absence due to illness. We ask that if your child is sick, please keep them home from school, as we want to see all of our community make it through cold and flu season safely. Please continue to phone or email the school each day that your child will be absent, with the reason for the absence (examples: illness, medical appointment, etc.). Teachers will continue to post assignment basics in Google Classroom by 4:00 each day for students to access.  

Got Lunch?  

We remain a closed campus at lunchtime. We want to remind families that students need to bring their lunch or have it ordered through Healthy Hunger for distribution through the servery. We do have a variety of lower cost items for purchase at the server including Cheese Buns, Ham and Cheeses Buns, and Chocolate Chip Buns from Glamorgan Bakery. Hot water is available for soup through the servery. We are not able to provide access to microwaves for student use. As a reminder, we are not able to receive Skip the Dishes, Door Dash, Uber Eats, etc. in the main office. The driver will be asked to return the delivery to the restaurant.   

Course Fees and Lunch Supervision Registration  

We have received notice that the courses that have fees associated with them have been added to your account; fees are due when assigned. Also please note: all grade 6 students that stay at school for lunch should be registered to do so.  

Fees and registration can be found on your MyCBE account.

Wednesday Principal Update - November 30

Dear DGS Families, 

  

You blink, and suddenly, it’s December. In case you’re keeping track, this means we only have just over three weeks until the sweet peace of winter break envelopes the halls of DGS and you get to spend some much-wanted downtime with your families. We have lots on the go in the next three weeks, so don’t worry about your sweet babies in the meantime! Our first Wrestling Meet since 2019 takes place on Monday, preparations are underway for several different field studies taking place this month and our school’s presentation of “The Shuddersome Tales of Poe” is set for mid-December. We enjoyed connecting with our families last week at Parent Teacher Student Conferences and as always, if you want to meet outside of that time with your child(ren)’s teachers, you are more than welcome to do so.

Wednesday Principal Update - November 23

Dear DGS Families, 

  

We’re looking forward to connecting with you virtually tomorrow evening and Friday morning to talk about your adolescent’s progress, growth and achievement at school since September. A School Messenger with a Microsoft Teams Meeting link will be sent out today from the teachers that you have made a conference booking with. We can’t stress enough that while this is one scheduled opportunity for conversation, teachers are always happy to connect with you outside of their instructional times to talk about how your child is doing at school. Please do not hesitate to reach out to your child’s teachers should you have any questions or want to check-in. Student progress is also updated bi-weekly in all core Subject Areas in PowerSchool.  

  

Digital Citizenship and Social Media 

Students are becoming more and more aware of issues that can arise on social media. On some occasions an issue may occur outside of school hours on social media which then can spill over into the school and affect the day-to-day interactions of our students. One area of difficulty is student’s participation in Group Chats on platforms like Snapchat. Students can be invited into conversations which they don’t necessarily want to participate in. We would encourage parents to check in with their children around their social media use. Another great resource is our digital citizenship presentation which can help guide a conversation around digital citizenship. 

Book Fair 

Our book fair is up and running this week in our Learning Commons. Many students have had the opportunity to explore the fair. Parents are welcome to visit in person between 3:00pm and 4:00pm on Wednesday Nov 23. You can shop from hundreds of items either in-person or online through our Virtual Book Fair extension. Your purchases will help to earn new resources for our school. Classes will have scheduled times during the day for the students to visit the Book Fair and make purchases.  

Volunteers are needed to run this event, sign up here

Wednesday Principal Update - November 9

Dear DGS Families, 

  

It’s COLD OUT THERE! (But I like it!) We’ve been having a great time during indoor lunch. Teachers have been setting up and hosting spaces for students to participate in different activities and students who want to go outside are enjoying the snow, movement break and incredibly fresh air. Teenagers have the uncanny ability to appear completely fine in a hoodie and sneakers- I always remind them that it’s a fine line between courage and, well, common sense.  

With the onset of this cold weather, we want to make sure everyone has the same information around soft entry, lunchtime, etc. Soft Entry starts at 8:00. We do not open the doors before this time. As of 8:00, teachers are on supervision inside and outside of the building. At lunch, all students are expected to be outside for half of their lunchtime unless the temperature with windchill is colder than -20 degrees Celsius. Please ensure your child is dressed for the weather. We do provide outdoor supervision at lunchtime for students who are committed to being polar bears. 

Yesterday, a group of our Grade 8’s were honoured to spend time with Elder Peter Weasel Moccasin and Paula Smith from the Kainai and Piikani First Nations. Elder Peter shared important stories and lessons from his lifetime and our students were encouraged to consider the worldview of our Blackfoot People on Treaty 7 Land. During our whole staff meeting later in the day, Paula helped us to contextualize both the lives of indigenous youth historically and in 2022. We want to thank them both for the gift of their time, their wisdom and conversations with us. 

Remembrance Day Ceremony 

On Thursday November 10 2022, our school will participate in a virtual Remembrance Day Ceremony prepared by our Grade 8 Leadership students. This ceremony will mark the contributions to peacekeeping efforts made by our Canadian service members, as well as consider the historical significance of symbols such as the poppy. If you do not wish for your child to participate in this ceremony, please let their homeroom teacher know and we will make other arrangements for them during this time. Our participation in the 2022 Veteran’s Food Drive will continue through until November 14, 2022. We want to thank our families for their support of this initiative. 

Lost & Found  

Please encourage your child(ren) to check the Lost & Found often for any forgotten belongings. There is a high number of items that have accumulated there. Any items remaining on November 10 will be donated. 

Go Nuts for Donuts 

Parent Fundraising Society is happy to sponsor an opportunity to purchase Red and While Sprinkle Texas Donuts for delivery on Friday November 18.

Course Fees and Lunch Supervision Registration 

We have received notice that the courses that have fees associated with them have been added to your account; fees are due when assigned. Also please note: all grade 6 students that stay at school for lunch should be registered to do so.
