Dear CES Students and Parents,

Welcome back to another wonderful year at Crossfield Elementary School!  I am very excited to be returning for a second year at CES.  I enjoyed getting to know the community again and look forwarding to continuing the work that we have been doing with the students of the CES community.    Our two priorities from our School Education plan for the upcoming year are literacy and positive mental health.  These are two areas that I and all of the staff at CES are passionate about and I hope that you will look forward to seeing more specific details about these programs in the upcoming weeks.

We have a few changes among our staff this year as we welcome Ms. Lisa Metcalfe as our incoming Assistant Principal and Ms. Gwen Quaife who will be teaching half time with our Grade One team.   I’m happy to say that all of the rest of our staff are returning from last year though Ms. Graham will be joining the Grade Four team. While change is good, I am nevertheless delighted that our CES team has remained intact as we had an excellent year last year and are excited to continue our work with the students of Crossfield.

Our staff at CES are dedicated to helping every student become empowered to achieve personal success, but we know that we are only part of the picture.   That is why we also strive to have meaningful, positive relationships with our parents and the Crossfield community.   As part of that relationship, we invite you to be involved with your child’s learning both in and out of school.   We encourage you to spend time talking to your children about their school day and finding out the wonders that they have encountered on their daily journey through education.   We believe that learning is joyful and invite you to participate in the life of the school through volunteering, coming as a guest speaker, visiting on open house days, joining our celebrations of learning, or just keeping in touch via our school website, facebook page, or personal contact through phone or email.  Likewise, our parent council and “Whoo’s Crew” always welcome new members or guests to drop in at their monthly meetings.

Continuing this September, I will again be sending out weekly principal newsletters to everyone in our learning community and welcome return notes for any reason from concerns, to chat, to thoughts on learning, or even just sharing a virtual smile! In the meantime, please feel free to contact me at rodgersr@rockyview.ab.ca for any reason whatsoever.

Again, I have enjoyed my return to Crossfield and look forward to another wonderful year at CES!

Sincerely,

Bob Rodgers
