Terry Fox Run

On September 29, 2014, we held our annual Terry Fox Run and continued our tradition of spelling out a word on the hill behind our school.  We are in the second year of our faith theme from Micah 6:8, “Do justice, love kindness and walk humbly with your God.”  We spelled out “BE KIND”.  Click the photo to take a peek at the video!

Message From Administration

We are starting to get a number of families registering their children for school for next year and inquiring about future years.  As you are well aware we are a restricted enrollment school and because of our limited resources we are only accepting Catholic students in our boundary area at this current time.  Priority on our waitlists is given to families with siblings in the school.

On Monday, October 27, the District held the official sod turning ceremony for the new Catholic Aspen School.  It will be great to have another school in west Calgary as the population continues to grow.  The planned opening for the Aspen School is in September, 2016.  Parents will be made aware of another public participation evening early in the new year, as the District reviews boundary areas in preparation of the opening of the new school.

Last year we did a survey of our current families to assist us in planning for future enrolments.  This was not a formal registration, but we did place all those names on lists for the upcoming school years.  We are now in a position to start the registration process for these students  We will be contacting all families on our list for the 2015-2016 school year by Friday, November 14, 2014.  The phone call will confirm your interest in registering at John Costello and we will advise you of the documents we need to process your registration.  If you do no receive a phone call and are planning to attend John Costello School please contact the school as soon as possible so we can add you to our lists.

In looking ahead to next year it appears we will have room to meet the needs of our boundary area students in most grades.  Grades two and three currently have waitlists and we will monitor this as we move ahead.  Please let us know if your plans change so we can adjust our lists accordingly.
