Student Dress Code

Recently we have been blessed with beautiful summer like weather. Many students in their efforts to be comfortable are changing their dress attire accordingly. Unfortunately, some students are dressing in a manner that is not appropriate for a Catholic school environment which promotes both modesty and respect. Teachers report they spend valuable teaching time dealing with this issue.

The district’s student dress code can be found below and online using the following link: https://docs.google.com/a/learn.cssd.ab.ca/document/d/19U77o-BeEkqMlCRzwsU-4LOzVc9GJ4zoGvIE5iNPivk/export?format=pdf

We request your continued support and adherence in following the district’s dress code. Please note students not following the code will be asked to change into appropriate apparel. 26.1 Standards of grooming and dress are determined from the perspectives of health and safety in all activities, cleanliness and neatness, and decency and respect. 26.2 Students may be asked to change into more appropriate apparel if they have: 26.2.1 Clothing that is indecent or disrespectful to others, (for example, visible undergarments, inappropriate pictures or words); 26.2.2 Torn or ripped clothing; 26.2.3 Very short skirts or shorts; 6.2.4 Hats/caps or sunglasses inside buildings. 26.3 Students must wear appropriate footwear and clothing for indoor activities and physical education. Thank you.

Greenator News, Science Olympics and Let’s Talk Science Challenge

Greenator News

Our small but dedicated group of Greenators are trying to make a difference in our world. This year, we are trying to educate our community about water conservation.  We have made up some conservation kits which families can borrow to conserve water, and thus save money at home.  We are continuing with our indoor vegetable planters, and are working on composting our paper towels and lunch room waste.

We have hosted a couple of bake sales to raise money for CAWST, who help to provide access to safe clean drinking water. Currently half of the world’s population does not have this access!  We will host an Earth Day lunch as our final fundraiser to help CAWST out.  This tasty lunch will include pasta, salad, and dessert, and will be on Friday, April 22, which is Earth Day.

The Greenators will be presenting their project to date at World Water Day, Wednesday, March 16 at the Devonian Gardens.  This event highlights the work that students across Calgary are doing to make a difference!

Science Olympics

St. Brigid will participate in Science Olympics, an event hosted by APEGA, on Saturday, April 9 at the University of Calgary.  The team will be involved in a variety of mystery challenges that day, and will be judged on their take home event, a solar boiler.  Best of luck to these awesome students!

Let’s Talk Science Challenge

We love science at St. Brigid! We will be well represented at the Let’s Talk Science Challenge at the University of Calgary in May.  Students are working on reviewing material for the game show, as well as preparing their team problem solving skills for the hands on challenge.  Science rules!

District International Travel

District International Travel

Recent global events have prompted our district to re-evaluate international travel for both our students and our staff. After extensive discussion involving our school administrators and teachers, our Business Services department, tour companies, other districts around the province, our senior administration team, and our Board of Trustees, we have made the decision to cancel any out-of-country travel for the remainder of the school year. We will monitor the situation and review this decision in September 2016.

At the forefront of this decision was the safety of our students and our staff. While we believe in the educational value of international travel, we have an obligation to ensure a safe and caring environment. Due to fluctuating travel advisories and unknowns, we cannot risk the health and well-being of our students and staff.

We acknowledge the challenges that will arise as a result of this decision and will work with our schools to minimize the impact on students and their families that are directly affected. This was a difficult decision to make and we thank you for your support and understanding.

Transportation Fee 2015-16

  • The Transportation Fee for 2015-16 will be $270 per student, to a family maximum of $540 for a family of two children or more using yellow bus service. The fee also applies to Diverse Learning students who have special transportation arranged by the district.
  • The fee has been increased in order to bridge the increased difference between the government student transportation grants and the actual current cost of transporting students in the district.

 

  • UPDATED 2015-16 BUS ROUTES will be posted by MID-AUGUST to cssd.ab.ca. Click “Transportation” then “Schedules and Routes” then “School Name”. All routes for each school are in one document, so scroll down to find the route you’re looking for.
  • Parents and schools should check for their child’s bus route, stop location and stop time. It’s a good idea to practice with your child to be ready for the first day of school.
