Visit the Free Little Library outside the front doors of the school and share in the love of reading! Families are invited to borrow books from this library and take them home to read.  When finished with the book they can return it to the library box for someone else to borrow. You are also welcome to share any books from your own home.  Happy Reading!

Falconridge is a Calgary Reads School.  We believe strongly in the acquisition of strong literacy skills for all of our students.  This begins with providing all students with numerous opportunities to sing, read, talk and play.  Please feel free to have a conversation with your child’s teacher about how you can support the important acquisition of these fundamental skills.

Mission & Purpose
mission

Through discovery and exploration, we will empower P.R.O.U.D. learners to become courageous leaders.

Guiding Principles:

personalized | I will know the passions of my students and broaden my perspective of diverse communication possibilities.

relationships | I will create significant relationships because without significant relationships there is no significant learning.

ownership | I will take responsibility for each and every student's learning. No excuses.

united | I will work to facilitate an environment where we support each other as professional learners.

dedicated | I will continually reflect on my work as I develop the most promising practice for the success of all students.
