Administrator’s Message | March

Did you know there are only two Black Walnut trees growing in all of Alberta? One of which is in our Earl Grey courtyard!

Our school community has begun an engagement process where we are seeking input from students, parents and staff of what they would like to see created in the courtyard. Suggestions thus far have been raised beds for children to plant in, a gathering area to be used as an outdoor classroom and sections of the courtyard to be planted with native plants, bushes and trees. We also need to be mindful in our planning to think of water conservation, low future maintenance and above all, keeping our very precious Black Walnut safe and healthy.

We will be having a parent meeting hosted by our school council on Tuesday, March 7th, at 6:30 p.m. We encourage all interested parents to come out and see the proposals we have thus far, and to give us your input of what you would like to see our courtyard become.

Student Led Conferences will be held on the evening of March 16 and the afternoon of March 17. This conference format allows our students to take the driver seat and show parents what they are learning in school. Teachers will also be available during this time.

I have always found the saying “March roars in like a lion” to be very true here in Calgary. Let us hope for warm winds as March “goes out like a lamb,” as we all look forward to our Spring break at the end of the month.
