Hi Belfast families & friends:
Playground Closure as of April 10
Our Beautification Program is full speed ahead here at Belfast! Our playground expansion will begin as of Monday, April 10th. For student’s safety this area will be fenced off and all the existing playground equipment may also be inaccessible to play on. We know that many of you stay after school to enjoy a bit of playtime on the playground with your student however, this will not be possible during this timeframe. We will keep you posted on the expected reopening which we hope will be in approximately 2 weeks however, this is entirely weather dependent and we all know how Calgary can be at times.
April 11th at 6:15 in Learning Commons Our Fundraising Council is hosting a workshop to rewrite and amend some of their bylaws. The workshop will be facilitated by a representative of the Alberta Council of School Councils. If you are interested in learning more about school council please consider joining us. Babysitting and dinner will be provided. Click here to RSVP.
Please NOTE Our Office and Classroom Blogs are Out of Service
Please be advised that our classroom blogs are not accessible from our CBE accounts currently. As a result our teachers and students have likely not been able to update these. We hope our blogs will resume in very soon but for now you can expect communication via email from the classroom.
