Principal's Message

WINTER UPDATES 2022

 
Dear Parents/Guardians,
Once again we find ourselves with the winter break upon us.  As the weather continues to fluctuate, please be reminded that when the temperature (with wind chill) exceeds -20 degrees, students are asked to come into the school before 8:15 AM for safety.  These same conditions apply to our students staying in for lunch, they do not go outdoors if these conditions go below –20 degrees.  Please check our school website for the weather conditions used to base these conditions and considerations at the school.  
Our school development plan spans three years time and 2022-2023 is Year Three of this plan. To that end, our 2022-23 goals intentionally continue from last year:
· Literacy Goals 
¨ Student achievement in making personal connections to      ​reading in order to explore, construct, and extend understanding will improve.
· Well Being for Learning Goal 
¨ Student independence in social problem solving, by demonstrating citizenship, collaboration and problem solving strategies, will improve.
· Mathematics Goal 
¨ Student independence in social problem solving, by demonstrating citizenship, collaboration and problem solving strategies, will improve.
A detailed copy of our 2022-23 School Development Plan that includes student goals, instructional actions, resources, key outcomes and measures is posted on our school webpage at cbe.ab.ca/b398 under the About Us > Our School tab.
 VOLUNTEERS NEEDED
As you are aware, our crosswalks at our school are very busy at our start and dismissal times. In a Kindergarten to Grade 4 school,  we do not have the Grade 6 school patrols. With the high volume of traffic and more than 700 students, we would like to have 2 adult supervisors at each of our East and West crosswalks. Our SPECIAL REQUEST is to ask if we have any parents who are interested in Volunteering for Crosswalk Supervision BEFORE and AFTER school.
Training will be provided.
Please contact the Office (403-777-6270) if you are interested to volunteer. NOTE: FOR THE PARENTS AND GUARDIANS WHO HAVE ALREADY SIGNED UP TO VOLUNTEER, WE THANK YOU VERY MUCH AND APPRECIATE YOUR HELP AND SUPPORT TO OUR SCHOOL AND THE TARADALE COMMUNITY.
