Administration Monthly Message

Happy New Year, Bulldog parents!

To all parents of students in Grade 7 – As an annual check-up on the education system, the Accountability Pillar provides an opportunity for Alberta Education and school authorities to ensure that we are equipping students for success. The Accountability Pillar uses a set of 16 indicators. Data on these indicators consists of surveys of students, parents and teachers on various aspects of education quality, student outcomes such as program of studies, and provincial assessments of student learning. From now to the end of February, Alberta Education will be conducting the annual Accountability Pillar Survey.   In January, parents of students from Meadowbrook in Grade 7 will receive a survey from Alberta Education.   In February, students in Grades 7 in Meadowbrook and all teachers will be   completing their surveys online at school.  All surveys are anonymous and ask questions about experiences with Meadowbrook.  In addition to English, the parent survey is available in many languages. Your participation in the survey helps provide important information on the quality of education your child is receiving, so we encourage you to return your survey promptly. Survey results will be available to school authorities in May 2018, and will be reported publicly as part of their 3-Year Education Plans and Annual Education Results Reports. We strongly encourage parents to provide feedback, as we look thoughtfully at this and value and appreciate your input. Thank you, in advance, of your time.   Basketball is in full swing. Many thanks to our coaches for their time and efforts.   Our Experiential Learning Week course selections have been determined and are posted throughout the school. If fees are attached to the course and if you have   registered for School Cash online, you will have received an email to notify you of this. We request payment by February 16. This highly anticipated week of learning is set for April 30 – May 4. Many parents have already expressed interest in              volunteering and/or providing or knowing someone of expertise. Please contact the school if you have not done so already if you are interested. More specific information on the courses will be coming home in March.   Meadowbrook is looking at making some updates to our Learning Commons. We will form a small working group to look at other models within and outside of RVS. We would like to invite a parent to sit on this working group. If you are interested, please let the school know and we will forward your interest to your School Council Chair, Dan McEwing. Our next School Council meeting is February 14. All parents are welcome.   Our next assembly is scheduled for February 14.   A small group of leadership students are invited to attend a Middle school     Leadership conference at Division office on February 12. Ms. Legh and Ms. Diebolt will be facilitating their attendance at this.   Twelve Meadowbrook students will be attending the, Battle of the Books on February 15 at Division Office. Go Bulldogs!!!

Until next time,

Ms. McDuffe
