Thank You and Farewell

It was a unique year for The Hamptons School community with 3 different principals taking the helm over that time. It is a credit to Principal Debbie Bradbury, Acting Principal Rhonda Williams and the entire staff for keeping things running smoothly and setting me up for success through clear communication and stellar leadership. The Hamptons School community was resilient, rolled with the changes and looked after one another during this time of transition. It is a special place. Thank you to the staff, students and parents for their warm welcome and support during the last 3 months. I have thoroughly enjoyed my time at this wonderful school. Ms. Bradbury has been in regular communication and is excited about returning for the 2023/24 school year.

For those of you leaving our school community, I wish you continued success and happiness. Thank you for your contributions to our school. For those of you new to us for 2023/24 school year, welcome to a school that exudes the best in public education. Please consider getting involved with school council and other opportunities to support our work. Back to school information is on our website and Ms. Bradbury will be sending out a welcome message upon her return.

May your summer be filled with joy, fun, relaxation and time together. It was an honour and privilege to be your acting principal at The Hamptons School.

Sincerely,

Chris Aylesworth, Acting Principal.

Dear Hamptons Families, 

It is with mixed emotions that I write this message to let you know that I will be leaving The Hamptons School. I have accepted the position as the Principal of West Dalhousie School, and I begin there on April 3, 2023. I am honored to have had the opportunity to be the Acting Principal and work in such an amazing school.  What makes this such an incredible school is the staff, students, and the Hamptons families.  I feel like I have grown as a school leader in this position at the Hamptons. While I am terribly sad to leave, I am excited about my next learning opportunity. 

I know that you may be worried about the next steps but please rest assured that your children will be well taken care of by the new acting principal and the incredible staff at The Hamptons School until Ms. Bradbury returns.  Chris Aylesworth will be the acting principal for April, May, and June as I transition to West Dalhousie School. Chris retired as a principal in March 2019 from Jennie Elliott School in Lakeview and before that was the principal of Sunalta School in Scarboro. As a teacher, he has taught in many K-9 settings and thoroughly enjoys spending time in classrooms and working with students. Chris and I worked together in 2021 when he was the acting principal at A.E. Cross School and I was the assistant principal. Our goal is to make the transition as seamless as possible. Chris is delighted to be coming to this wonderful school. 


Thank you all! 

Rhonda Williams ​

    It is important for parents/guardians to understand how students are doing in school. The report card is one component of communicating student learning. Parents/Guardians of students in Grades 1-4 at The Hamptons School will have access to view student report cards starting Monday, January 30.

    Accessing Report Cards through MyCBE

    Parents and guardians can log in to MyCBE to view student information including report cards, comments from your child's teacher, assignments and grades, and attendance information. For best access to information, log in to the MyCBE portal instead of using the PowerSchool app.

Principal’s Message – Friday, September 30, 2022

Dear Families,  


Thank you for making me feel so welcome at The Hamptons School. I am settling in and getting to know the students. 

 

Hamptons Community Association Rink Repair 

The boards around the rink at the community association are being replaced over the next 2-4 weeks and this may impact parking. There will be a fence placed around the rink to ensure safety.   

 

REMINDER - Forms! 

The Student Health Plan a form that must be:  

  • completed if a physical or medical condition may affect the student’s attendance at school;  

  • completed if medication is to be taken at school; and  

  • reviewed and updated annually or sooner if there is a change in the student’s health concern or school registration. 

 

National Day for Truth and Reconciliation – September 30 

Orange Shirt Day is September 30. At the Hamptons school, we recognized Orange Shirt Day on September 29 with a school assembly. It was amazing to see all the students wearing orange. Truth and Reconciliation began in 2013 when residential school survivor Phyllis Webstad shared how her orange shirt was taken away on her first day at residential school. This story is an opportunity for students and staff to reflect on history, legacy and implications, to discuss stories of survival and strength and to share ways we can work together toward truth and reconciliation. It is also an opportunity to commit to commemorating the children who attended residential schools, recognizing their experiences, honoring them, and sharing a collective commitment to ensure that every child matters and that each student is welcome, safe, respected and cared for in their learning community every day. 

 

Student Code of Conduct  

All CBE schools follow the administrative regulations on the Student Code of Conduct and Progressive Student Discipline. Please familiarize yourself with these regulations as our work with students and families will focus on the expectations contained within these regulations. You can learn more about this on ourwebsite.

Hi Hamptons families, I am super excited to get the opportunity to be part of the Hamptons school. I was fortunate to meet a lot of students and their families this week at the school and during the open house. I wanted to share a little bit about myself. I have worked for the CBE for over 20 years in various schools. I have lived in Calgary with my husband for almost 25 years. We have three children and two of them are currently attending University. My youngest child is in Grade 10 at Crescent Heights High School. Hope to meet you soon!

Orange Shirt Day is officially on September 30.

This story is an opportunity for students and staff to reflect on history, legacy and implications, to discuss stories of survival and strength and to share ways we can work together toward truth and reconciliation.

January-February

January is here and we begin the year with a week of on-line learning. We hope to have the students back for in-school learning next week. In-school classes have been going well. Students wear their masks most of the time except for lunch and outside times. Sanitizer is used regularly. Students stay in their cohort (homeroom) for all activities inside and outside. Students appear happy and eager to be at school.
Registration for kindergarten begins January 11. Please let friends and neighbours know about our wonderful school. We are happy to have them join our Hamptons school family.
There will be a virtual School Council meeting on January 27. The link will be sent out the day of the meeting and all parents are welcome to attend.
In February, the teachers will be attending Teachers’ Convention on-line on February 11 and 12. There are many educational and thought provoking sessions to attend and teachers are
re-energized from the experiences.
Enjoy the February break and we look forward to more great learning experiences when we return.​


Nov 19
November-December
In November, we had a wonderful Remembrance Day Assembly. Each class contributed a video, poem or artwork and everything was shared to each class in their own homerooms.
We will hold our second School Council meeting on November 25. We will discuss the School Results Report, the School Development Plan, the school budget and the Report to Parents on Fees. These documents will be found on our school website. At each meeting, a grade group of teachers presents on what is happening in their classrooms. The grade 1 teacher, Mrs. Oseen, will present this time. The next meeting is January 27. Please join us on-line and learn more about your school.
In December, we are promoting kindness and caring. We will have a craft afternoon to decorate the school. We will play carols in the classes. We will support The Calgary Foodbank as our Christmas charity. We hope students learn that they can make a difference in peoples’ lives. . By showing children how they can be of service to others, we are supporting children who care and contribute to society. Thank you parents for working alongside of us to instill these qualities in your children.
December will have Parent-Teacher conferences on December 10 and 11. These interviews are very important as it provides time for parents, teachers and students to discuss the learning experiences that have happened over the past 3 months. Interviews will be done virtually. Report cards will not be sent home until February.
I would like to thank the parents who are following the traffic rules in the parking lot and on the street at the front of the school. We have had to remind parents to drive carefully and watch for children at all times. We all worry about keeping children safe so it is up to all of us to obey the rules.
Registration for next year begins in January. Please let friends and neighbours know about our wonderful school. We are happy to have them join our Hamptons school family.
During the winter break, enjoy your family time and we look forward to new learning and experiences after the winter break.​
