Learning and Student Voice

It was very meaningful for students to have so many parents and guardians attend Parent-Teacher Student Led Conferences before the March Spring Break. Students celebrated their learning in various ways. Classrooms and hallways were full of displays of learning and the related curriculum connections posted with them. The student led conference approach is evidence of personalized learning where students are given greater ownership for their learning through choice, voice, goal-setting, self-evaluation, decision-making and celebrating the processes and products of their work.

 

All students will have a formal report card sent home on June 26. Please contact your child’s teacher with any questions or concerns – we are always open to discuss your child’s learning progress at any time.

Upcoming School Council Meetings

Our next School Council meeting is on Thursday, April 9th at 630 pm – everyone is welcome and baby-sitting is provided courtesy of School Council. We also extend an invitation to all families to our final School Council of the year on Thursday, May 7 at 630 pm. The School Council AGM will be in September 2015.

Somerset School is a “Calgary Reads” School

The intent of this program is to add further resources to reach all students in the best way possible to further their ability and joy of reading for a lifetime. For more information on this program please go to http://calgaryreads.com/

 

We are looking for volunteers to help read with students. If you have some time and would be able to help read with students please call the school at 403-777-7001. (You must have Police Clearance done in order to volunteer in the school).

 

Traffic Safety & Clean Air

Help keep our students and community members safe - please respect the school zone speed limits, space around our pedestrian sidewalks and fire hydrants by parking five metres back for the safety of everyone.

 

For the environment we are promoting a “No Idle Zone” around the school.
