International Spanish Academy
¿Quiénes somos? Our school is an International
Spanish Academy! The International Spanish Academy program is an educational
initiative of the Ministry of Education of Spain that complements the Calgary
Board of Education's vibrant Spanish Bilingual Program by connecting schools
from across Alberta and the United States. It provides students with
opportunities to acquire and maintain language skills in Spanish and English and
develop global citizenship through rich intercultural encounters.
Teaming: While students are part of a classroom grouping, each grade team will have a shared responsibility for all of the students in the team. This allows for flexible groupings so that at times, children may come together from different classrooms to work in flexible groups on specific assignments or projects.
The CBE promotes the development of good study habits. Two kinds of study include the completion of assignments and the informal study of topics being studied in class.Grade 1 and 2: Some formal assignments may be given. In addition, 5 to 10 minutes of systematic study per night is recommended. This will include daily reading.Grade 3 to 6: Formal assignments are more typical in Grade 5 & 6. Check with your child’s teacher to determine curriculum and classroom expectations.
