June 2023 Principal's Message

The school year is over and summer is here!  We would just like to take a minute to say thank you to all of our students and families for their hard work and amazing support this year.  We are so proud of how hard we have all worked together to ensure that students were safe, happy and learning at school. As we reviewed our report card work it was evident that Radisson Park students are truly remarkable, and we hope that families celebrate the incredible growth and progress that each child has made this year!


Report Cards/Attendance/Appeals Day

Report card marks reflect your child's achievement of the graded Alberta Program of Studies, and numerical descriptors 2, 3 and 4 all indicate that your child is demonstrating grade level achievement.  Please refer to the included curriculum newsletter, which outlines the specific units of study and outcomes assessed for this report card.


Attendance on report cards:  Please take a close look at your child's report card and note that the Student Information System counts each attendance block (morning and afternoon) separately.  This means that when a child is absent for a whole day, two absences are recorded, one for the morning and one for the afternoon.

Friday June 30th, 2023 is Appeals Day.  If you have questions about your child's report card, please contact the school at 403-777-8070 to speak with or meet with the teacher between 9:00 am and 12:00 pm.


Radisson Park School office will open for the 2023/2024 school year on Monday August 28th, 2023 at 9:00 am.  Please remember that the first day of school for students is Thursday August 31st, 2023.  Teachers will be in contact with families before the 31st to introduce themselves and talk about the first few days of school.


School Council News

To our School Council parents, a huge thank you from students and staff for organizing our year-end Popcorn sale! We loved it, and it was a great end to our year!  Thank you!


Thank you to all of the students and families who took part and supported all of the Council fundraisers this year!  All monies raised goes to support the school for things such as performances, field trips, Tasty Tuesday (kindergarten), books and extra resources.  Watch for information about fundraisers for next year.


We hope to see many parents involved in our Council work next year, and are currently looking for a volunteer to take over the Treasurer role.  Contact the school office for more information and watch the newsletters for next year's monthly meeting dates.


School/Staffing Updates

At this time we are not yet able to determine exactly how we will set up our classroom configurations (e.g. how many classrooms for each grade) for the fall as we are anticipating some changes to our student registration numbers.  If you know of families who have moved into the neighborhood, please encourage them to come and register at our school either on June 30th, or August 28th, 29th or 30th.  Thank you!

From all of us at Radisson Park School,

we wish our students and families a

safe and relaxing summer!


See you on August 31st, 2023!​

Integrated School Support Program (ISSP)

​Dear Radisson Park families.

 The African proverb, “It takes a village to raise a child", reminds us of the importance of schools, families and community coming together to support all children to be their best. With this in mind, we are very excited to announce that our community village has become bigger, as Radisson Park School has been selected to be part of the Integrated School Support Program (ISSP)!

 What is ISSP? The Integrated School Support Program is intended to provide supports and services to address various needs within our school and community, with the goal of improved academic performance and the social, emotional, and physical well-being of students. It is based on a holistic approach, focusing on areas of nutrition, fitness, academic success and well-being to  build a safe and strong community. This comprehensive health model aims to ensure that children have access to wrap-around supports at school. It includes meal programs, after school programs, structured physical education and access to a mental health professional, as well as other community supports, including a positive police presence. 

 ISSP at Radisson Park School: This program is funded by the Calgary Police Youth Foundation, and is a collaboration between Calgary Police Service, Calgary Board of Education, Calgary Catholic School District and the City of Calgary's Community and Neighborhood Services. Programs and supports currently in place at Radisson Park School, including meal supports and structured physical education program, will continue. Our ISSP partnership will support us to build a positive police presence, with opportunities organized for Calgary Police Service members to perhaps attend special events.

 It will also fund a full-time psychologist for our school!  We are very excited to welcome our new psychologist, Ashley Gobin.  She will become part of the Radisson Park staff in early February and will work alongside teachers to support well-being. For example, Ashley may become part of PAThS lessons (Promoting Alternative Thinking Skills, our social-emotional learning program), or may support whole-class conversations about friendship skills, etc.  She will also be able to work individually with students for required assessments or counselling, with parental consent.

 We are so thrilled to have been chosen for this incredible opportunity, and are looking forward to working together to help our amazing students be even better!

Thank you for your ongoing support, and please join us in welcoming the Integrated School Support Program into our village!
