Weekly Update to Families Oct 11-15
The school year is off to a great start, and it's hard to believe that we're nearly at the end of September already. Our staff team has worked together to create routines for students and to help students and staff establish relationships with friends, each other and with families. It is important that our students staff, and families feel welcome in our learning community to ensure a fresh positive start at such a challenging time in a child's life and we encourage families to reach out to their teachers or our school office if they need information about our learning community and how they might connect to it. We hosted Student Learning Conferences last week, and I hope you had an opportunity to connect with your child's teacher so you could share your child's strengths, interests and aspirations. The information you share in these conferences helps us get to know your children even better and enables us to design learning for them so that they feel safe, respected, welcomed and cared for. Please be sure to continue to connect your child's classroom teachers as needed so we are aware of how we can support your children both at school and at home. This coming week marks many important moments for Canada. We're recognizing Terry Fox's accomplishments in his bid to run across Canada. We're also recognizing Residential Schools and their influence on Canadian Indigenous people through Orange Shirt Day. This year, we will recognize the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation for the first time. Students are asked to wear an orange shirt or something that is orange to help mark this important day and remind us that every child matters. In everything we do, we want to continue being and becoming a community that is safe, caring, respectful and welcoming for all. Teachers will continue the community-centered practice of class meeting as students discuss important issues, and strengthen the community connection they have built throughout the first few weeks of school. Thank you to our teachers and families for coming together to ensure that our students are cared for and engaged in important learning.
RT @UCalgaryPeds: Last week, twenty-two @UCalgaryMed pediatric residents visited @yyCBEdu high schools across the city with a mission to destigmatize #mentalhealth issues and connect students with resources and support that they may need.
