Ways to Get Connected

Successful, effective schools achieve a strong triangle between the home, the student and the school. We know that good communication and positive relationships between parents and the school will result in a better education for students. Here are some ways for you to become involved:

  • School Council
  • Parent Volunteers
  • School Communication - Please regularly check the Georges P. Vanier website for school information, calendars and upcoming events. The school website will also communicate information from the Calgary Board of Education and community.
  • Principal's Messages - A Principal’s Message email will be regularly and will be updated on the school’s web page. This message will contain information regarding events at Georges P. Vanier School. Please ensure that you have completed the Calgary Board of Education email distribution requirements, or you may not receive these emails. Please see the CBE website for Canada's Anti-Spam Legislation (CASL) Policies & Regulations.
  • Letters and Forms - School communications distributed on paper need to be completed and returned to the office or to teachers in a timely manner. If you have any questions about forms coming home, please check the web page or call the office.
  • Bulletin Board - We have a parent notice board just inside the main entrance to the school. If you have information for other parents, or if you are dropping by the school, look at the board for updated information. All items posted must be approved by the principal.
