Special Notes:


  • Note sent to students. Please read and reinforce: We ARE Canadian.  Being cold is a part of our identity.  We have four seasons:  Almost winter, winter, still winter, and road construction.  Embrace the cold!  Crunchy hair?  Snotsicles? Frozen tears? Bring it on!  You MUST go outside after lunch.  No procrastinating, hiding in the  washroom, taking your time at your locker…we are on to you.  Be prepared by bringing a coat, mitts, a scarf, and the almighty Canadian toque!  Consequences for hiding indoors will involve outdoor work like shovelling snow and picking up garbage. Never fear…If it’s toooo cold to go outside, we will let you know.  Even Canadians have their limits. – Mrs. Bartlett
  •  Booking for Student Learning Conferences are well underway. If you haven’t already done so, please look at the email sent home on Thursday for the steps to book your time. The Student Learning Conferences are a blend between Student- Led Conferences and old traditional  Parent Teacher Interviews. There will be 3-4 families in the classroom with the same booked time. There will be stations in the classroom where you child can demonstrate their learning with you. You will get dedicated time with the teacher within the 20 minute time frame. Please take the time to drop-in and meet the Complimentary teachers in their teaching spaces and Phys. Ed teachers located at Centre Court.
  • Monday is our last day for collecting old cell phones. Please donate them on Monday to the Calgary Zoo to help save the Gorilla Habitat in Africa where they mine Colton a mineral used in cell phones.
  • Thank you for all the food and money donations for the Veterans Food Bank and poppy fund. We had two excellent Remembrance Day Assemblies on Friday.
  • Thanks to those parents that braved the weather on Thursday to attend the Dare to Care Parent workshop. There was great information given out by the presenter. Thanks to School Council for their Sponsorship of this great evening.
  • We would ask that parents make arrangements with their child before the end of the school day. Often we have long line ups to use the students phone. Also, recently we have had parents come to the school looking for their child. We have so much going on in then school after school and we can’t always look around for students. Please make plans ahead of time.
