November Updates

 Dear Parents/Guardians,

 

I thank you for coming out to our recent Parent/Teacher/Student conferences.  The turn our was wonderful.  We strive to have a collaborative working relationship with our families to support our students and continue to encourage you to contact your child’s classroom teacher should you have any quesitons or concerns.

 

At this time I would like to remind families of their commitment to having your children in the appropriate TLC uniform.  All uniform pieces must be clean, tidy, in good repair and fit appropriately.  All uniform pieces should be clearly and permanently labelled so that in the event that a piece is found it may be returned to the correct student.  Due to the markings left on school floors by many of our student’s dress shoes, we moved to allowing students to wear all black non-marking soled shoes.  Black shoes with white soles, shoes with white or coloured markings and coloured laces are not acceptable.  Should you require more information please refer to the TLC uniform information at  www.cbe.ab.ca/programs/program-options/teaching-philosopy/Pages/Traditional-Learning-Centre.aspx.

 

We would like to remind parents that Fairmount Drive and Fyffe Road are mainly school bus loading zones and have posted no parking signs.  While this can make it difficult for dropping off and picking up students, we are asking that you do not park in these areas.  We are working with the Calgary Police Services, the City of Calgary and Southland Transportation to review our bus zones and ensure the safety of all.

 

Fairview will be hosting a Book Fair for students December 10 -13, 2018.  On December 10th, students will be scheduled to preview the items for sale and will have a “wish list” that they can take home.  Parents may send monies with students to purchase between the 11-13th.  Should parents/guardians wish to see what is for sale they may attend the book fair over the lunch hour (12:22 – 1:07) Monday to Thursday or Wednesday evening 4:15 – 6:45pm and Thursday evening 4:15 – 6:30pm.  Should you wish to volunteer for our book fair please contact Ms. Duggal in the library.

 

We have begun the process to convert our current library space into an updated Learning Commons area.  To support this endeavour, the school applied for and were fortunate to be given a grant through EducationMatters.  These funds along with school funds and funds provided to us from the Fairview Fundraising Society (Parent Council) will see the Learning Commons begin to take shape beginning in January of 2019.  I thank our Parent Council for supporting us and encourage parents to join the council meetings.  Council meetings occur the 2nd Tuesday of every month at 6:30pm in the Fairview Learning Commons (Library).

 

Sincerely,

Therese McCoag

Principal, Fairview School
