THE CALGARY SCIENCE SCHOOL

Principal’s Message This is the last Principal’s message before our November student-led conferences, so I want to focus on how we report on student progress in a couple of subjects. As I have mentioned in previous Principal’s messages, we have undertaken some changes to how we report on fine arts and physical education. The students and teachers have been documenting learning in the fine arts on the students’ digital portfolios, which are basically individual student blogs that are hosted on our servers. They have been posting examples of their work as well as their own reflections on that work. We have removed fine arts from the report cards and will instead provide parents an opportunity to see students’ progress and achievement by having students share their portfolios with their parents periodically. Portfolio-based assessment is a much more authentic way to document

student learning in the fine arts and we anticipate a very successful transition to this means of reporting on student progress and achievement. Physical Education has also seen a couple of changes, including new rubrics and supplementing report cards with some portfolio-based feedback. The new rubrics will appear on the report card folders and teachers and students have just recently begun to utilize the portfolios for additional information. The same portfolios that the students use for fine arts are used for physical education. We foresee expanding the use of the portfolios in the future to also incorporate the other subjects (though not doing away with report cards), with the ultimate vision being students leaving the Calgary Science School at the end of grade nine with a digital portfolio that represents their growth and development throughout their whole time with us.

On a completely unrelated note, but absolutely worth mentioning in this venue are recent accomplishments of two of our teachers. First, Emily Brown competed in Australia over the break in the World Masters’ Games, winning a gold, a silver and a bronze medal in trap shooting. Second, Neil Stephenson has been recognized again for excellence in teaching. He has already been recognized by Apple Canada as an Apple Distinguished Educator, and most recently he was awarded a Certificate of Achievement for the Prime Minister’s Awards for Excellence in Teaching. This is really a tremendous accomplishment for Neil. Congratulations to both Emily and Neil! Darrell Lonsberry Principal

hank you A huge Thank You to all the parent helpers who volunteered their time at Camp Sweet this fall.

Thank you to all who picked up groceries, put groceries away, prepared food, served meals, and cleaned up after 50 students! Even the smallest of jobs was important to the success of the program. I enjoyed getting to know each one of you and had a lot of fun working with all of you in the kitchen. We had a lot of laughs and I learned a lot too! Thank you does not begin to express my appreciation for all your work!! Michelle Hodgson Outdoor Ed. Assistant

rovincial Achievement Test Results

The table below summarizes the Calgary Science School’s results on the 2008-2009 provincial achievement tests for grades 6 and 9. It should be noted that the results for Social Studies are not available because the provincial curriculum for Social Studies changed and so the government won’t release aggregate data until they have 3 years of data to report on. We continue to be very happy with the PAT results, but are even more proud of the work that our students do that isn’t reflected in PAT marks. Provincial achievement tests do not measure higher order thinking skills, they are a one-shot summative assessment, and they only measure part of what is taught and learned in a classroom throughout the year. Additionally, a small grade 6 and 9 population means that individual students’ results have a relatively large impact on the overall school results. Nonetheless, our results are indicative of a program that is very strongly tied to the Alberta Programs of Study. In utilizing the results from the tests, teachers analyze the data in detail to determine if and how we might adapt our program to address changes in results.

ransportation Update

The changes made to the routes and timing at the end of September seem to be running smoothly. There are still some construction projects causing delays. As well, the committee is aware of the delay to the buses leaving Lakeview via 37 St caused by the new traffic circle. This situation may improve as people make different driving choices. We will continue to monitor this. This month there are only two brief items:

EMERGENCY LIST AND INVALID EMAIL ADDRESSES The route coordinators have collected personal contact information from all riders and it is now being compiled into one file to be used by CSS admin and Southland Transportation. This file is used in the event that any parent or guardian needs to be contacted in an emergency. It is important that this information be kept current. Please remember to email the transportation committee or Kathy Babiuk if you change any of the contact info that you submitted. The transportation committee conducts all of its

communication by email. We need to have a working address for each family using the bus system. We have lost contact with a few families as the only email we have no longer works. If you have not received the request to send in your personal emergency contact info, please reconnect with the committee with your new email. Consider using your student’s laptop email if necessary. Without an address, the committee is unable to notify you of any changes made to the stop or time. You may be inconvenienced by the lack of such information.

BE IN THE LOADING ZONE BEFORE THE SCHEDULED STOP TIME Our buses need to load and pull away from each stop as quickly as possible. Please ensure your children are in the loading zone, the sidewalk area where the children board the bus, before the scheduled time. Just being at the stop, but waiting in a vehicle, is not enough to ensure that you don’t miss the bus. The driver may be unaware that there is anyone else at the stop. If it is already past the scheduled stop time, the bus will leave, unfortunately without your children. When the weather is very cold, at the point where the danger of frostbite is extreme, the children are safer waiting in a vehicle. Thankfully, these days are few in Calgary. When extreme weather keeps your students in the car, please continue to be considerate of the driver’s need to get the bus to school on time:

Have your children ready to leave the vehicle quickly. Stay bundled up with mitts on and jackets done up. This practice will also enable you to turn off your engine and not create pollution through idling. Remove seatbelts and have the backpacks, etc, handy.

Keep a watch for the bus and move to the loading zone as soon as you see the bus or other students moving to the stop. Remember, though, to stay safe and watch for traffic. If there are several students at the stop, take turns watching for the bus and indicate to the others when it is in view.

If you have received a delay notice, go to the loading zone when the bus is now expected.

Remember, the whole system works better with everyone’s cooperation. Please don’t delay the bus by having it wait while your children exit the vehicle. Children at later stops will be kept waiting longer, perhaps outside. As well, the bus may be blocking traffic as it waits for you.

If you have any questions or comments, let us know at: transportationatcss@gmail.com Margaret Mills, CSS Transportation Committee Chair 7+(

inds in Motion

On October 20th, two facilitators from The Minds in Motion Organization (University of Calgary), Crystal Ross and Melissa Lorenzo, along with Susan Stark, a representative from Imperial Oil, came to do some work on the topic of science to our CSS Girls’ Leadership Group. The girls, grades 4 to 9, worked in large and small groups to learn more about jobs in the field of engineering, and as well, did some learning activities around the topic of water conservation. One of the highlights of the morning was when these girls worked together to invent effective water filtration systems. We appreciated the time and dedication that this organization, along with Imperial Oil, are making to draw attention to the careers in the field of science. Dr. Shelley Robinson

hallenge Day at CSS

On October 1, 2009, the Calgary Science School participated in its first Challenge Day in conjunction with Westmount Charter School and the Foundations for the Future Charter Academy (Ogden). This day was filled with much enthusiasm by almost forty adult leaders who were both teachers and parents. These volunteers helped to bring the day to fruition by being part of the planning and implementation of this fabulous day. As well, our 100 students were absolutely terrific as they, participated openly and with much energy towards bringing a greater sense of mutual respect across their grade. This special day, facilitated by two dynamic Challenge Day facilitators from California, was a nice followup to the Grade 9 Bamfield trip. Thanks to everyone who helped to make this a fabulous experience. We are pleased to announce that we will be doing this same initiative again next year in conjunction with Chris Hooper at Westmount Charter School and Kurtis Leinweber at the FFCA Ogden Campus.

A Man, A Can, A Plan Challenge Rob Pegg, who is the extraordinary volunteer that works on our web site is putting the challenge out to all you other dads for the first Parent Council Chili Cook Off on November 04 at 7 pm . Throw some beans and ground beef in your slow cooker (or whatever your secret recipe requires) and you are set! Any chefs who would like to demonstrate their ability to cook (apparently there are a number of traditionalists who believe males don’t cook) are invited to bring a crock pot of chili along. If we get enough variety then we will “judge” the various recipes to determine who shall be hailed the “King of CSS Chili”! Beverages will be provided for all attending. The theme of the evening will be “boys and what they need from our schools”... there is a lot of research that shows that there are gender differences that schools should attend to. Come out, have some fun, eat some chili, and learn a little more about the particular needs of boys in a school setting. The evening will start with the serving of chilli, then a guest panel addressing “Boys in Education” and will finish with the monthly Council Meeting.

6:00 - Bring your chilli and plug it in 6:15 – Chilli consumption 6:45 – Judging and results 6:58 – “All Hail the King of CSS Chilli!” 7:00 – “Meeting the Needs of Boys at CSS” presentation 7:20 – Questions and Discussion 7:30 – Council Meeting In order to adequately plan for the event, please let Wendy Baillie know if you are planning on attending at bailliew@shaw.ca

The Power of Parents

Our presenters, Stacey McRae from Alberta Health Services and Constable Wendy Parker with the CPS started off the first of the 4 sessions talking to parents about role modeling, what parents can influence in their child’s life as well as risk and protective factors for children and teens. We had a wonderful turnout of around 40 parents. The booklet that is used as part of this program can be downloaded at: http://www.aadac.com/documents/KidsDrugs_Parent.pdf

UPCOMING SESSIONS

CSS Drug Use Policy An important part of a comprehensive school program to develop awareness of the issue of drugs, alcohol and tobacco involves ensuring everyone is aware of the appropriate school policy. Here is the existing policy:

Substance Abuse 1. The inherent dangers involved with the use of drugs, alcohol, tobacco, and inhalants will be taught to all students in a grade appropriate manner. The Public Health Nurse and related community agencies (i.e. – AADAC) will be utilized as resources for this purpose. 2. Student use, possession of, distribution of, or active contact with drugs, alcohol, tobacco or inhalants in school, on school board property or in the context of any school-related activity are prohibited. 3. In any case where a student has contravened Section 2 above, school administration will thoroughly investigate the matter and will take immediate action to: a. Assess the student’s immediate medical needs, if any, as a result of substance use. b. Contact a parent / guardian to inform them of the incident and provide assistance in obtaining follow up care and / or treatment as deemed appropriate. c. Ensure the student’s actions are addressed in accordance with the Discipline Policy.

ower of Words

Every day in school, in lineups at the grocery store, on television or out in the restaurants, I hear words that cause me to pause and wonder if much thought is going into what is being said and the impact it is having on other people. I feel that our culture at large is on a slippery slope of deteriorating language. We have become desensitized to a trend of thoughtless verbiage that can sometimes pack a powerful punch. Sometimes it feels more like verbal diarrhea than any mode of effective communication. My father used to not allow certain words in our home such as “hate�, “stupid�, “dumb�, “idiotic� and others. I would roll my eyes each and every time he would correct us. Ironically, now when I hear my son say, “I hate that class!� I respond with, “Pardon?� He sighs with resignation and corrects himself: “OK, I dislike it.�

“sucks� some older people cringe at the implications of where this language began. When we refer to someone as “lame� or “retarded�, we overlook that by using what we often perceive as old and acceptable slang, we are actually sending a patronizing message to the people around us. But more important, when we don’t stop and think about the words we use, we can hurt ourselves. Toxic language infiltrates the experience of the communicator as much as those to or of whom we are speaking. We need to resensitize ourselves to the words that we use. That requires that we stop and think about what we really mean to say. I was once told that words are like toothpaste – once the paste is squeezed out, it’s pretty difficult to get it back in the tube.

However, sometimes people need reminders. When we are uncomfortable with words, others or our own, it is important to address it. We need to (politely) stop ourselves and each other and indicate that words affect us and each other and the space that we create together. If we take this example of negative language up a notch By acknowledging this fact, it doesn’t make us prudish, and start referring to each other by derogatory names or uptight. It makes us stronger as a culture. and continually say, “Freaking this freaking that,� we present what some perceive as a cool exterior. However, others hear condescension and criticism. When life Dr. Shelley Robinson The word “hate� is a powerful word and by using it, we have the potential of actually feeling it. If we shift the word, we can soften the thought. Language shapes our thoughts and our thoughts shape our culture.

rade 8 Students Get Political During Model Debate at Alberta’s Legislature

On October sixth, the grade eight students visited the Alberta Legislature in Edmonton. During their visit they were lucky to be taken on a compelling tour of the building, as well as participate in a mock debate. This debate took place in a room set up to look like the legislative chamber where the political decisions of Alberta are made. Students took on the actual roles of government members including one speaker who moderated the debate and was backed up by two pages, and a sergeant at arms. The remaining students were part of either the governing party or the opposing side. As part of this process the Governing and Opposition Party Members wore suit jackets, and in the case of the Sergeant at Arms and the Lieutenant Governor, the specific clothing of the post. As you can see A.H (8.4) as the Lieutenant Governor looks ready to command a 19th century ship of war against the forces of Napoleon. The topic of the debate was centered around social networking sites, and whether or not they should be banned for children and teens under the age of 18. Both members of the Governing party and the Official Opposition fiercely debated their position,

shining a light on both the positive and negative effects of social networking sites on youth culture. Each student who played the role of a member of a political party spent time before the trip writing and memorizing a sophisticated and well articulated argument to defend their party’s position. During the debate both democratic wings would add emphasis to their arguments as well as build suspense, as they forcefully made their point. Subsequent to this, the students participated in a portion of the debate that was open and free, which allowed them to challenge opponents points of view and add to their own. This was the climax of the debate because it allowed the students to truly say what they believed. Ultimately the Governing Party won and we can all expect new legislation banning social networking sites for people under the age of 18 in the near future. Myspace and Face Book while you still can.

Terry Fox Run :

A single dream. A world of hope.

The Calgary Science School students and staff had the opportunity to participate in the Terry Fox Run on Monday, September 21st. On this beautiful fall day, our students joined together to run and walk in Glenmore Park to simulate Terry’s Marathon of Hope. The enthusiasm and determination of the students were evident as community members commented on their stellar behavior. We would like to thank the parent volunteers that helped out in making the Terry Fox Run a success. The Calgary Science School community should be very proud for their contribution of nearly $9500 fundraised for cancer research. This donation will help make a difference in the fight against cancer.

hysical Education

Dear Parents / Guardians, The Physical Education program has undergone a few changes beginning in the 2009/10 school year. We have created a new Report Card Rubric and are moving towards digital portfolios as an assessment tool in conjunction with the number indicators on the report card. A final change within our program is the introduction of off-site units of study and field trips. The new changes to the report card rubric put an emphasis on community enhancement, contributions from our students to create a positive, healthy environment, responsibility of our students to actively engage themselves in healthy decisions and skill acquisition. These changes were made to reflect the core value of our program, which is to foster the personal, social, and physical growth of the students. We are making the shift towards introducing digital portfolios as well this year. We feel that the most authentic and accurate way of assessing the learning

outcomes of the P.E. program (activity, connecting P.E. to our daily lives, healthy decision making and co-operation) is by a student maintained digital portfolio. The off-site P.E. program was introduced this year to foster the connection between Physical Education classes and daily activity for life. The activities that were chosen for the Grade 7-9 classes were activities that can be participated in for a lifetime and are easily accessible in any community. The grade 4-6 field trips also support this philosophy and will hopefully help to create a lifetime love of exercise and the outdoors. These concepts are a driving force behind the P.E. program at CSS. We hope these improved changes will give a more authentic learning environment inside and outside of the gym walls. Thank you for your continued support, Dean Schmeichel and Tammy Olson

Highlights The grade 4 and 5’s had a good time with the Poker run this year. The next unit in Miss Olson’s class is volleyball. Mr. Schmeichel's student teacher, Mr Melrose will be focusing on Football. Following that is Dodgeball. Please visit the Physical Education Website for the following information: Confirmed Fieldtrips (grade 4-6), Intramural information and Team information. 7+(

azers Field Hockey

This fall marked the return of the sport of field hockey to the athletics landscape here at CSS. Eleven students, from grade six to nine, spent five weeks developing their skills under the tutelage of Mr. Dittmann and Ms. Shergill. The season culminated with our participation in the Calgary Junior Field Hockey League’s 3 v 3 Thanksgiving Tournament. We entered three teams into the U-14 Boys category: 2nd Place: CSS Old Boys 3rd Place: CSS Brothers United 4th Place: CSS Lucky Sevens All the boys represented our school very well, showing determination and sportsmanship against competitors who were often years older and far more experienced in the sport. It’s been great to see so many students try a new sport and enjoy it. If you missed out this year, please join us next year. We especially encourage all the girls at our school to give the sport a try. Coach Dittmann

Cross Country Mr. Butterfield, Ms. DeCarlo and Miss Olson want to extend a special “thank you” to all the cross country participants this year! Students had great attendance at both practices and the two meets. They represented CSS very well! Any results received are now posted outside the gym. Thank you to all the parents who drove their child to the meets and to the morning practices on Tuesdays. We hope that running becomes a big part of our student’s lives! 7+(

rade 9 Bamfield Trip

When I first arrived in Bamfield it felt as though I was in a forest because the first thing that clouds your vision were the glorious trees, sitting there for hundreds of years. As you look at the trees in greater detail you can make out that moss has grown all around the trunk, a milky green color. As I walked on the ground, you can feel the wet soil crunch under your boots as you take a single step. I followed the dirt road, a truly remarkable sight unfolding right before me. Two islands right beside each other form an arch that points towards the Bamfield Inlet. The sunsets, the rays reflect off the top of the trees onto the island and into the water, creating a spectacular scene. I turn my gaze to the East and I see that the boats docked at the eastern dock are humongous in the light, and the rocks underneath them have a lethal look to them. The weight of my bags were bothering, but not disturbing. Finally the dorm room came into my view, but more surprising is the smell of nature that you just can’t experience in the city. After we finished unpacking we had time to explore the forest around the dormitory. Searching for a while, we found a colossal tree trunk that bore the marks of a fire. The fire had taken its toll on the tree trunk and split the huge trunk in half. Wanting to

alert the others about my findings, I sprinted down the hill, at full tilt, but at one point there was a hill where the plants grew at the same height, and I took a step and fell. Irritated by a itchiness in my hand, I looked for the culprit. To my despair, I see that the plants all around me are covered in spikes. Desperate to get out, I crossed my arms in front of my face and ran to freedom. The Whale Lab’s touch tank was filled with varied animals, but one creature in particular stood out, the Sea Cucumber. My finger grazed its back, but to my surprise, its back felt as though it was made from Jello, rather then being spiky. As I picked the Sea Cucumber out of the water it contracted as though it was gasping for water. The anemone was a different story. The side of it felt sticky and soft, the tentacles that poked out at the top felt sticky, and stabbed your finger with tiny poison stingers. If you stick something inside its mouth it will close up around it and consume it. The behemoth skull of the 6-month old whale is a sight to remember; the albino white bones arranged in the perfect way. As we went to explore the docks, a cool pacific wind hit my face. Which made me think of how lucky I was to be here. A.C. 9.1 7+(

rade 8 ircle Tour

The grade eights were given the opportunity to journey on an adventurous expedition. We traveled over 1000 km in only three nights and four days. Our trip included stops in Edmonton, Jasper and Banff. Since it was hosted in October, it was definitely one of our colder crusades, however, the bonds we built kept us warm. Our first stop was in Edmonton, where we visited the Telus World of Science and the West Edmonton Mall, World Water Park. After a restless night in Edmonton, we got up early to hit the road again. After visiting the Alberta Legislature we set off to Jasper, with a stop at the Miette Hot Springs. In Jasper we went whitewater rafting and went on a hike at Maligne Canyon. With our last stop at the Columbia Ice Fields, we embarked on a very eventful bus ride home. Although a long and exhausting ride, we overcame all that nature threw at us, to arrive safely at home. By (B.F). and J.J. (8.1)

Note: The 2010-11 Outdoor Education Calendar will reflect a change in the scheduling of the Grade 8 Circle Tour to June 2011 to take advantage of better weather conditions.
