Registration for the 2017-18 school year begins Monday, Jan. 9, 2017 for traditional calendar schools. Children must be at least four years old on or before March 1 to start kindergarten in September of the same calendar year.

The form and all the registration information you need can be found on the CBE website at: Registration Kindergarten to Grade 9.

Weekly Message - Jan. 16-20, 2017

 

This Wednesday, all of our Grade 1 students have field trip to the Calgary zoo.

 

With all of the difficult driving conditions this past week, we had many bus delays. In order to get notifications of late buses, please sign up for My Bus Monitor at http://www.myschoolbusmonitor.ca.

 

Everyone should have received information regarding the CBE plans for future use of learning space. In the plan, Sam Livingston School will remain K-4 French Immersion and students will then go to David Thompson School from Grades 5-9. Please visit the Schools Impacted by New School Openings for more details.

 

The Me to We project for January is to help those who need more warm clothes in this cold weather.  We will be donating it all to the "Project Warmth Society of Alberta". This is a registered charitable association that has been formed to assist the homeless and the underprivileged. 

 

If you have gently used coats, snow pants, mitts, hats, scarves, boots and blankets that you can donate, please send them to school before January 31st.  Even if there are broken zippers, missing buttons, they will take them, fix them and clean them, ready to be distributed to those in need.   Lets warm up Calgary and make a difference!

The following is a list of items we are looking to collect for our learning commons/labocréo.

  • Electronics – no glass, visible screws, electrical cords removed, reasonable weight
  • Variety of screwdrivers
  • Buttons
  • Beads
  • Wooden clothes pins
  • Popsicle sticks
  • Floral wire
  • Pompoms
  • Toothpicks
  • Wrapping paper
  • Twigs
  • Scrapbook paper
  • Kleenex boxes
  • Toilet paper rolls
  • Metal coat hangers
  • Glue guns
  • Glue gun sticks

Collection day will always be Mondays ONLY as we hope to have parent volunteers to help sort and store these items. If you have any of these items that you can donate, we would be very appreciative. The Friday message will contain any items we are looking to collect the following week.
