For Parents

Parents play an important role in the education of their children. Their involvement and encouragement can help a child excel.

At Glendale School we encourage parent voice in your child's education. Our strong School Parent Council, numerous volunteering opportunities in the classroom and outstanding community building events provide an opportunity for parents to have an active voice and to play an important role in your child's young life.

Thank you for all you do to support Glendale School!

What's new about the new CBE K-9 Report card?

The Calgary Board of Education (CBE) is currently working on a consistent report card format for students in kindergarten to Grade 9. Schools can choose to implement this new report card format for the 2013-14 school year or for the 2014-15 school year. Schools will make their decision of when to implement this change by the end of September, after they have gathered input from their parents and employees.

A more consistent approach will give parents a better view of student learning across the grades and benefit our system efforts to monitor and respond to student achievement. Though some new content was added to student report cards a couple years ago, it has been several years since the CBE had a newly-designed report card for k-9 students. The time to update and improve upon past practice has come.
