Our School

Rich in Activity and Learning

O.S. Geiger School embraces opportunities for students to engage in meaningful experiences that will support and enhance learning. We are linked to many agencies and community-based programs that make our school a vibrant place, dedicated to students. Examples of our ongoing involvement include:

Who Was O.S. Geiger?

O.S. Geiger School was named in honour of Alberta educator O.S. (Pelk) Geiger (1906-1987). Mr. Geiger served as teacher, principal, supervisor, and superintendent of elementary schools within the Calgary Board of Education for 42 years. He had the rare ability of gathering around him enlightened educators in whom he placed trust and confidence, which created a climate of excitement and growth in the sixties and seventies. 

His constant question, "Is it good for kids?" served as an excellent guide in an exciting period of education. Many fine programs that exist in our schools today can be linked directly to the time of Mr. Geiger's leadership. His influence impacted the lives of thousands of students in Calgary, and his mark on education continues through others who have the same dedication and commitment to the educational growth of young people.

School Development Plan

​Each year, our school prepares a development plan with input from teachers, school staff, students and parents. We review many sources of data, including report cards, provincial achievement test results and school surveys. Based on this information, we create our plan identifying targeted areas for growth. Our school development plan is not meant to represent all of the work that takes place in our school, but rather it focuses on specific areas for improvement.​​​

​School Improvement Results Report

Our school also prepares a results plan, which looks at our previous school year. It shows our students’ achievement and progress in meeting the goals and outcomes as set out by the CBE and Alberta Education, outlines some of the highlights of our school development plan and gives an overview of our school. You can look on the CBE website for system-wide results​.

Students in grades 1 and 2 explored the symbolism of the Métis flag and read “The Giving Tree” by Leah Dorian. They reflected on how the story connects to spirit, heart, body and mind. #CBEIndigenousEd https://t.co/WR61vEMlnS

RT @sidhu_nicole: Our class does a full body scan after lunch recess and choose the zone we feel best matches. Any blue, yellow or red @ZonesOfReg we have a problem solving chat. Ss choose from a menu of calming tasks to help get them regulated and ready for learning. @OSGeiger @Area4CBE @yyCBEdu https://t.co/mfFe0L50OG

Grade 3 & 4 students practiced creating and decoding new words. “This is helping me to sound out.” “I have to think….is this a real word or not? Does it make sense?” https://t.co/zMdP0AAHUP
