Welcome to a new school year!
We are excited to be welcoming our new and returning families to School! Our staff have been working diligently to prepare for the new school year. Our teachers are excited to start the new year and all the possibilities a new year brings.
We have a new outdoor classroom! Over the summer, we had an outdoor classroom constructed adjacent to the compound area. We are waiting a couple of weeks for the grass to grow in the area and then the fences will be removed. The classroom consists of boulders placed in a semi-circle with trees and planting boxes behind the sitting area. Students will have the opportunity to plant plants that are indigenous to Alberta. Once the fences are removed, teachers will be able to take students out to learn on the land. We would like to thank our Kenneth D Taylor School Council and Fund Raising Association for their support in funding this project.
It's that time of year again when we need to be mindful of our driving and parking habits to ensure all of our students arrive safely and depart safely from school each day. We understand that many parents want to ensure their child knows where to go in the first couple of days of school and we expect increased traffic flow around the school this coming week. Please be patient!
To ease traffic congestion, we ask parents to use our “Hug and Go" drop off areas in front of the school and along Evanston View adjacent to the school fields. The less time that a parent remains in the loading zones, the more vehicles can use the space. In the mornings, students can enter the school at any door they wish. Once students are familiar with the door they choose to enter the building, they are able to walk from the “Hug and Go" areas independently. We encourage all families that choose to drive to school to use our loading zones in this manner.
Once again, welcome to Kenneth D Taylor!
