Feb. 16th - Feb. 19th

Feb. 11th, 12th, and 15th are non-school day for students. We look forward to seeing all the children back on Tuesday, Feb. 16th.

On Wednesday, Feb. 17th all the students in our school will be experiencing Kananaskis in the Classroom at 9 a.m. in the gym. The presentation is entitled, ‘What’s the Poop’ and will take our students through the soil cycle and the importance of recycling. Parents are always welcome to attend our presentations!

Wednesday is also Popcorn Day. We are thankful to the many parents who volunteer to make this event happen for all the students in our school!! The staff love it too!

Scientists in School  will be returning to work with Kindergarten Room 1P on Thursday, Feb. 18th in the afternoon. Mme Kayleigh and her students are looking forward to this great learning experience!

Many thanks to all our staff, students, and their families for demonstrating extremely generous citizenship!! We have just received  letters and certificates from the Calgary Food Bank and Jump Rope for Heart recognizing our fundraising effortsin 2015. Sam Livingston School donated 160 pounds of mixed food to the Food Bank and raised an incredible $28,650.00 for the Heart and Stroke Foundation – that is amazing citizenship!!! Please see the letters and certificate in our display case by the front entrance.

We thank all our Grade 4 families who have already completed and submitted the annual Accountability Pillar Survey. The information you provide helps our school continue to improve the quality of education for our students. 

Sam Livingston School participates in the Calgary Board of Education’ SHRED program.  The SHRED program provides CBE schools and offices with a way to securely and efficiently recycle paper. Grey Iron Mountain shred bins are located throughout our school and we ask all students, staff, and parent volunteers to put all paper, no matter how small, into the shred bins. These bins are picked up on a monthly basis and once Iron Mountain securely shreds the paper, the processed materials are transported to paper mills for pulping. This destruction process secures  our school’s information, and preserves the global environment by reducing pollution, by preserving landfill space, and by saving trees, water, and energy resources.

Have a fantastic Family Day long weekend! Thank you for all you do to support Sam Livingston School – we so appreciate you!!
