PARENT SATISFACTION SURVEY 2013
We invite all our parents to participate in our annual survey regarding the quality of education your child is receiving at St. Margaret School!
To ensure our education system focuses on key improvements and the educational needs of students, Alberta Education requires each school to plan and report annually on provincial and local goals and strategies. School planning and reporting are integral components of school-based decision making.
Responses and feedback received will assist the district in meeting its commitment to quality education for all students.
All parents will be receiving a hard copy of the survey. Please take a few moments to share your thoughts through this survey which we request you send back to the school. It is also available online: http://bit.ly/11QfRyS
All responses and feedback will be kept strictly confidential.
The deadline to respond to the survey is Wednesday, May 22, 2013.
Thank-you for sharing your thoughts with us!
Good day to our St. Margaret Community,
Please remember that this Thursday, our elementary students will be putting on their dancing shoes for a display of spins, turns, and pirouettes!
The event will take place at St. Francis School at 7 pm, on Thursday, May 9th.
We hope to see you there!
Finally, the weather looks like it is turning and spring can’t be far behind. Jace paid a visit to the principal’s office on Friday to draw a picture of his family’s new car. It is a Honda and has “H” on the wheels!
It is always nice to have visitors to the office! Here is a picture of Jace and his lovely new car!
Good day to our parents.
It is that time of year to once again begin preparing our students in grade 3, 6, and 9 for their Provincial Testing.
If you have a child in these grades, I would like to suggest you download the attachment and save it for your records.

Good day to our St. Margaret Community,
We are pleased to inform you that the first ever Spanish Festival in Calgary will take place from April 24-28.
The event line-up will feature culture, music, food, movies and dancing. Please visit the website for details: www.holaspain.ca/spanish-festival/index.html
¡Qué la pasen bien!
Good day to our Junior High parents and students,
In conjunction with St. Francis High School, we are excited to announce that from this September, St. Francis High School will be offering Math, instead of Social Studies in Spanish! This was exciting news for us at St. Margaret, as we believe our students, who are already learning Math in Spanish, will find the transition into high school that much easier.
To help explain the reasoning behind this decision and to give all parents and students some information on what next year will look like for our students continuing on in the Spanish program, there will be an information night this coming Wednesday, April 10th, at 7:00 pm at St. Francis High School.
We encourage all interested parents to attend this session to voice for thoughts and to have any questions you may have, answered.
We look forward to seeing you at St. Francis this Wednesday!
Easter Blessings to our families!

On behalf of all of us here at Escuela St. Margaret School, we would like to wish our families a very blessed and peaceful Easter Holiday!
It was a great night of dancing by our Danceworks Team! Led by Señora Reigner, Señora Reynolds and Ms. Berstch, our Grades 4, 5, 6, 8 and 9 students did a super job at Father Lacombe. What a great show, Tigers!!
