SUMMER CALM ~ Registration NOW OPEN for Summer 2019!

Calgary Stampede Talent Search
Stampede Talent Search is a youth competition (ages 6-21) that happens during stampede week each year with the winner receiving $10,000 cash plus about $20,000 worth of prizes to help further their performance careers (recordings, videos, head shots, etc). It is a great opportunity that some of our talented students may want to take part in. Auditions are coming up in May and registration is now open!

My Child's Learning: A Parent's Resource
Be informed. Be involved.
Alberta is committed to creating an inclusive education system that inspires and enables all students to achieve success and fulfillment as engaged thinkers and ethical citizens, with an entrepreneurial spirit.
We recognize that parents play an important role in shaping the way their children view learning. As a parent, you understand more than anyone else how your child learns and processes information. This resource will provide you with a better understanding of Alberta’s curriculum and how you can help your child. Here, you’ll discover what your child is learning, how they’re assessed and what resources are available to help them be successful from Kindergarten to Grade 12.
Middle Years Learners
What is middle years learning? Please take a minute to read the CBE information about how education can be offered to students between the ages of 10 - 15.
The CBE has policies for safe and caring schools, policies on Internet use and cyber-bullying, and an emphasis on developing and measuring progress on students’ character, citizenship and personal development. Please visit these sites and speak with your children about the importance of this topic.
Students of all ages are increasingly bringing smartphones, laptops, and tablet computers to school with them. Please refer to our digital citizenship section if you have questions about the school's policies and expectations. It is very important to involve your child in frank discussions about how their digital devices should be used at school, realistic problems that will occur (such as damage, loss, and theft), and the natural consequences of inappropriate use.
Parents please have a look at these websites which can help tweens, teens and you keep your child's digital footprint clean.
The City of Calgary - WCC 2019 Youth Day Camp
Is riding to school part of your child's morning routine? Does your child use their bike to get around the neighbourhood? If so, consider signing them up to attend this free day camp for children aged 10-15 years (Grades 5-9). We are actively recruiting youth who like to bike in fair weather, those who are curious about trying cycling year-round, and those who already ride all year. [read more].
