Message From Administration
Recently we had our Help Plan Our Future meeting in looking at the attendance boundaries of our schools as we plan the opening of the new Aspen School in 2016-2017 school year. This meeting was very well attended with over 200 parents providing their thoughts and ideas, assisting us in building a new school community.
During the meeting the District presented two scenarios on how the attendance boundaries could be implemented. Parents were able to ask questions for clarification on the scenarios and information pertaining to the establishment of attendance boundaries. The participants then moved into a phase in which groups identified the strengths and concerns with each scenario and provided input into which scenario they felt was best. The final phase involved participants giving any other input or suggestions into the process of establishing our school attendance boundaries.
The feedback by parents in all parts of the meeting is currently being collated and will be posted on the District website. The entire presentation is also on the District website. A decision on the boundaries will be made before the conclusion of the school year. The link to the website is:
In planning for the 2015-2016 school year we are taking registrations at this time. Currently we have room in kindergarten and in grades 4-6. We do have waitlists for grades 1-3 but we are adding names as we are seeing changes weekly. We will be contacting people on our waitlist in mid-May and kindergarten orientation will be in mid-June.
Congratulations to the Grade 5 and 6 students from John Costello school who participated in the Calgary Youth Science Fair at the Olympic Oval, April 17-18. There were over 1000 students and 800 projects there. We are so proud of you!
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!
