The Calgary Science School

Principal’s Message In this last Principal’s message of the year I am reflecting back on what was a tremendous year. Every single week I was able to walk through the halls and classrooms and see students deeply engaged in their learning. I spent a few minutes thinking about the amazing things that have happened this year and want to share a few of the highlights with you. From the second week of school this year we have been running full steam ahead. The first trip to Camp Sweet left on the fourth day of school in August, which kicked off six weeks of trips to Mr. Sweet’s property – and that was just the beginning. The Fall had us participating in another very successful Terry Fox Run, putting on our bi-annual epic school musical, the school organized a fantastic parent conference, we hosted a number of external visits to the school, our grade nines participated in Challenge Day, our students undertook two fundraisers to help less fortunate Calgarians, we organized a very successful mayoralty candidate leadership forum and simulcast it to hundreds of other students in Calgary, we organized a very moving

Remembrance Day ceremony, and we had our first trimester reporting period and student-led conferences, just to name a few initiatives - all before the end of November. From November to March we enjoyed the Peace Festival, the grade sixes went on their winter camp experience, we hosted our in-school science fairs, over one hundred Mount Royal University education students visited our school to see what we do, the school council sponsored and organized the Barry MacDonald information evening, we began our admissions process with two information evenings and three Saturday admissions test sessions, we wrapped up volleyball season and started basketball, the grade fours went on their snowshoe trip to Kananaskis, our beginning band took part in the Kiwanis Music Festival, and we had our second round of student-led conferences – all before Spring Break. The last third of the year involved our Spring outdoor education trips to Fort Steele, the grade eight circle tour, grade four southern Alberta history tour, grade nine trips to Camp Sweet for their final visit, the installation of the community garden, the Inspiration Dance Recital

at the U of C, provincial achievement tests, our leadership students developed and hosted a youth health fair, our grade nines enjoyed their end of year celebrations, there were a number of off-site physical education experiences for students, we hosted a volunteer appreciation tea, a fine arts extravaganza evening, the Minster of Education spent an afternoon at CSS, we held our annual family picnic, and we managed to end the year with a fun-filled afternoon of activities and games. When I reflect back on everything we undertook this year (and the list above is only representative of all that we actually undertook), I am amazed and humbled by the dedication, commitment and unparalleled work ethic of the teachers, students and parents of CSS. This is a remarkable learning community and I am extremely appreciative to be part of it. I wish you all well and hope that you enjoy a safe, relaxing and family oriented summer holiday. See you next year! Darrell Lonsberry Principal

Assistant Principal I am very pleased to announce the appointment of Scott Petronech as our newest Assistant Principal. Mr. Petronech has been with the Calgary Science School since before it was the Calgary Science School (did you know we were first called the Science Alberta School?) In his capacity as instructional technologist for the past few years, Mr. Petronech has provided visionary leadership in bringing one-to-one computing to CSS and assisting teachers in adopting new teaching practices that incorporate technology. He has been the leading force in bringing iPads to the school for the upcoming school year as part of a study in the utilization of touch devices in an inquiry-based setting. We are excited to welcome Mr. Petronech’s expertise to our administrative team at CSS. Darrell Lonsberry

Rheana

Fa r e w e l l

This Spectrum is the final Spectrum that Rheana Fehr, our Communication Coordinator, will edit and produce. She has ser ved as editor of the Spectrum for the past 3 1/2 years and has contributed to CSS in many other ways as well. She produces our star t and end of year movies; she designs posters, programs, tickets and other materials for our fine ar ts and graduation programs; she com-

piles and designs the repor ts we send to Alber ta Education; she documents through photographs and movies many of the activities we engage in each year at CSS; she was par t of the design team for the new website; and she maintains an archive of the histor y of CSS in video, documents, and pictures. Since joining CSS as a student intern from Mount Royal University she has provided us with creativity and energy that has been ver y much appreciated and will be noticeably missed. Rheana, we all wish you well in the future and hope that you will stay in touch with CSS. Darrell Lonsberry

D

Well its that time again...another school year is done and summer is around the corner. We have a few reminders to leave you with: The first day of school is Wednesday, August 17th and buses will be running as per the new schedules that were recently emailed out. The Transportation Committee will have a few representatives on hand that day at the Meet and Greet Coffee to answer any transportation questions you may have. Please be sure to send an email to the committee if you want to use a stop or route that is different than the one sent to you in early June. We will let you know before the start of school if your choice can be accommodated for the first day. If you are moving, send us your new address! The CSS website currently has links to maps of the 2010-2011 bus stops. Here are the links to the 20112012 maps:

Just a reminder during the summer break that the CSS transportation email may not be answered until August 3, 2011 when a parent volunteer will be available. Please remember if you wish to request a change to a bus stop’s location, send it to the committee by Sept 27, 2011. The committee will meet to review all requests in early October and the revised routes should take effect the week after fall break. Our email address is listed above for your reference. Many routes are getting full: LET US KNOW AS SOON AS POSSIBLE if you will need transportation service for the upcoming 2011/2012 school year. Families who plan to use the bus have to complete the on-line registration for transportation in their family account. Contact Nola Shewfelt in the school office before the end of school if you need to have your option reset. We hope everyone has a safe and fun summer break! The CSS Transportation Committee

Alberta Minister

of Education

visit’s the Calgary Science School On the afternoon of Wednesday, June 22nd, the Honorable Dave Hancock, Minister of Education, accompanied by his executive assistant had an opportunity to visit the Calgary Science School and learn how we are fulfilling our mandate as a Charter School. The visit began with an opportunity for the Minister to meet with the chair of the board, Lori Wilhem-Einsporn, and the Calgary Science School leadership team, Dr. Garry McKinnon, Darrell Lonsberry, Phil Butterfield, Shelley Robinson, Scott Petronech and Neil Stephenson. During this time, discussions centered on the unique programs and initiatives that have been implemented at the Calgary Science School, and how we are striving to become a centre of research and innovation for the benefit of education in the province. The minister then had an opportunity to see examples of student work from a variety of grades and subject areas that highlighted our use of inquiry-based teaching and technology. A number of teachers and students were able to speak with the Minister and share their thoughts about what makes our school an exemplary place to be. Neil Stephenson

Volunteer Tea The CSS Parent Volunteer Tea, held on Friday June 10th, was a huge success. It was well-attended (75 people), and the program by students was really professional with an intimate tone and repertoire selection thanks to Amy Vercleyen and Andrew Bolen. As well, Mrs. Leland’s class did a very special number to thank parents with friendship rocks.

The table cloths and centre-pieces were a huge success. The parents appreciated this effort along with the food, entertainment and door prizes. Thank you to the CSS Parent Volunteer Tea Committee consisting of Shelley Robinson, Amy Vercleyen, Andrew Bolen, Lorrie Emin, Natalie Down, Candice Shaw and Margaret Lelund for pulling this all together, along with the beautiful art showcase setting the right ambience by Lorrie Emin. Bravo!

Thank you to all our wonderful volunteers at CSS! The

FINE ARTS UPDATE We have had a busy wrap-up to the year with our dance productions. Hundreds of students have participated in either our second annual dance recital INSPIRE or our fourth annual Blacklight Show. Our students have been working for months to ensure our shows were a success and we are very proud of their individual success both on a small and large scale. As our performing arts students continue to grow, we look for new opportunities to share our work with the outside world. CSS presented the first ever Fine Arts Extravaganza showcasing artwork and performances from the Dance and Band programs. We were able to incorporate the fine arts students’ many skills by providing a creative outlet for some of the drama presentations we have been working on in class, in addition to our dance and band performances and the art showcase. What wonderful work the students put into their projects and rehearsals to put together a wonderful year-end wrap-up. During the last week of school, students embraced their last creative presentations within the structure of our school assemblies, such as the grade 9 farewell celebration and our family picnic and fun day!

All grade 5 band students returning to CSS for grade 6 need to have their band instrument for the first week of August. Please contact Mr. Bolen with any questions regarding the instrument selection. Any students interested in returning to intermediate band next year should contact Mr. Bolen. All other students who have an instrument and are not returning to band next year may take their rentals back to the store to terminate their contracts.

Thank-you to all fine arts students and their families for a great year. We hope everyone finds a creative outlet to encourage improving their skills, but all in all we wish everyone a relaxing, enjoyable summer! Andrew Bolen and Amy Vercleyen

GARDEN

On Saturday, June 4 the Lakeview Community Garden was constructed. Despite numerous weather-related setbacks in the weeks beforehand, the committee and about 30 volunteers, many of them Lakeview residents, worked very hard throughout the day to create this wonderful growing space. As of this writing, many of the beds have already been planted and the garden will soon be in full bloom! There are 19 beds, one of which acts as the “free bed.” This bed is labeled as such and is located in the far northeast corner. The free bed will be planted by the Calgary Science School’s grade 4 students and their teacher, Valerie Barnes. Once the bed has been planted it will be open to anyone to pick from. Another interesting feature of the garden will be the “potato condos,” barrels that will be used to grow potatoes. There are 10 of these and they will be shared amongst the garden users.

A big thank you to the many organizations and people who have donated to the garden. Burpee Seeds donated 19 Celebrity tomato seedlings and Terry Waters donated seeds and leeks for planting. Sybil and Jack Young also donated seeds for planting while the City of Calgary continues to donate compost for the beds. A very big thank you goes to the Lakeview Community for their overwhelming support of this initiative. For further information, please contact the garden committee at lakeviewcommunitygarden@gmail.com

LANTERNS FOR JAPAN (A Beacon of Hope)

Handcrafted torri lantern. Only $60. Proceeds donated to Red Cross Japan Earthquake/ Tsunami Relief fund. On Friday, March 11, 2011, a 9.0 magnitude earthquake rocked Japan and triggered a massive tsunami: leaving over 15,000 dead and nearly 8,000 missing. You can help – by purchasing one of these handcrafted cedar and rice paper lanterns with LED tea light. These one-of-a-kind works of art were designed by local woodwork enthusiast, Mike Neufeld – and built by volunteers right here in Calgary. All money raised will support displaced persons and ongoing rebuilding efforts in Japan. Learn more at: https://sites.google.com/site/lanternsforjapan/

Grade 8

Circle Tour At 6am Monday morning the Grade 8’s loaded the tour buses and were off to the University of Alberta. After the long drive to Edmonton, they finally arrived for workshops with some students from the Engineering Faculty. Robotics, biology and assembling a circuit board were amongst the activities that were completed during this segment of the trip. After finishing these activities, the Grade 8’s got back on the

tour buses and were off to the WEM Water park, where they spent an afternoon swimming and sliding. Dinner at the WEM food court and setting up camp was soon to follow. “Wake up”, “Get out of bed!” These were the words that started the second day of the trip. Next was a quick stop at the Edmonton Science Center where a Laser/Light show and a 3D Imax were absorbed. As the group travelled on to Jasper, thun-

der showers and lightning displays became the only scenery outside of the bus windows. This dreadful weather didn’t let up by the time the buses reached the Miette Hot Springs, putting the second swim session of the trip in jeopardy. Fortunately for those who were excited for the Hot Springs, the weather let up for the duration of the time spent in the hot pools. As the unrelenting pace of the trip continued, the Grade 8’s went to the Jasper Campground to set up their tent site and had a quick supper before the end of the day. After waking up from another good and for some not so good nights sleep, half of the Grade 8’s

headed to Maligne Canyon for a pleasant nature walk through the trees and waterfalls. As for the other half, it was off to the Athabasca river for a wet, cold and adrenaline filled rafting experience. As for the last day of the trip, they visited the astounding Columbia Ice Field and then headed back to Calgary with a quick snack stop in Banff. Finally at 5:30pm, the trip came to a close as the bus pulled up in front of the school that it had left 4 days earlier. Casey M (8.3)
