The Calgary Science School

Principal’s Message The CSS parent fundraising society hosted its first casino fundraiser in February. What was most remarkable for me was that we actually had more volunteers put their names forward than we had spaces for. My experience with other casinos is that it is sometimes difficult to find enough volunteers, but, once again, our parent community has demonstrated an incredible volunteer spirit and support for our school. We won’t know for a few months how much money was raised through this event but we certainly won’t have any difficulty spending the money once we get it. Toward that end, we are seeking feedback from our students as to how that money might best be allocated to support our program and teachers have submitted their list of ideas as well. We will update everyone as to how the fundraised money is being allocated once plans are finalized. Speaking of parental involvement, I want to pre-emptively thank the parent organizers of the Fun Money Casino on March 2. It is a lot of work to plan an event such as this and I am very thankful for the efforts of those parents who were able to dedicate some of their valuable time to make this opportunity available. It is important to consciously provide opportunities for people in a school community to connect with each other; it is even more important in a community such as ours where we are drawing families from all over the city. I appreciate the

fact that this social isn’t intended to be a fundraiser but rather is meant just to be an opportunity to connect with other CSS parents and have a lot of fun while doing it. Lastly, I want to take this opportunity to encourage everyone to attend the Student-Led Conferences on March 7th and 8th. While it is certainly an opportunity for parents to find out more about the specifics of what students have been working on in class, it is as much an occasion for students to celebrate the fruits of their labour and show off their achievements. If you would like to connect with your student’s teachers separately from the student-led conferences, please feel free to contact them and set up an appointment. I understand that parents may occasionally feel that setting up a meeting with a teacher is somehow an imposition on the teacher’s time and there may be some uncertainty about whether an issue warrants a meeting with the teacher. I can assure you, however, that the teachers welcome the opportunity to connect with parents, to get the parental perspective on students’ achievements and to discuss how we can work together to ensure continued student success. Sincerely, Darrell Lonsberry Principal

and other Board Meeting Highlights

As you read in the February Spectrum, the Calgary Science School Board of Directors has been busy in 2013 and we haven’t slowed down yet! We had a full agenda for our February 19 meeting which opened with a presentation from Mr. Fawcett and Mr. McKenzie highlighting their grade 7 Humanities students’ work on the Family Artifact Inquiry Project. Their presentation included a video clip featuring exemplars of students’ work. They shared how they guided their students through various aspects of the project and challenged them to be creative and truly engaged. The results were impressive as we saw students’ personal reflections on their chosen artifact. Thank you to Mr. Fawcett and Mr. McKenzie for sharing this fascinating project with us.

The approved strategic plan focuses on four key areas to support the new Charter goals:

Following up on preliminary work done during the January retreat, the board, staff and administration collaborated to develop a strategic plan. It was important for the board to pause and reflect on what had transpired during the past year and to consider where CSS could go in the future. Knowing that we have a charter until 2027 allows the school to make true long-term plans and consider the implications of the 15 year charter.

Each focus area is supported by action strategies that will guide and direct the school’s activities throughout the coming year. Watch the Spectrum newsletter, the CSS website and the Connect! blog for updates on progress in these four key areas.

To provide leadership in exemplary learning, teaching and leading.

To lead, share and transform through research initiatives and active partnerships.

To ensure sustainability and continued development and enrichment of programming over the long term.

To implement effective communication strategies to promote the involvement of the Calgary Science School in leading, sharing and transforming.

Transportation Committee Update THANK YOU! Thank you for the response to our request for a Bus Volunteer to oversee Route 4! CSS parents rock! REMINDERS As we prepare for the upcoming 2013/2104 route planning, we know many families move in the spring/summer months. Please remember to let us know if you plan to move well in advance! We do our best to accommodate the numerous communities in all quadrants of the city so the more notice we receive, the better when planning bus routes. ROUTE UPDATE Overall the buses have run quite well so far this year. Our drivers do a great job getting our students to school safely and on time. Please note, R11 is currently without their usual driver and we are working to resolve that as quickly as possible.

Entering the

Superintendent/Leadership Team Report

Calgary Science School Science Fair and Explorer Inquiries One of the 16 descriptors of Exemplary Teaching in the Calgary Science School makes reference to a research focus where classrooms are thriving places of active research and teachers and students are learning together and from each other. Another descriptor highlights a focus on inquiry where students and teachers explore real-life questions to develop a better understanding of our world. These two descriptors and several others in the Exemplary Learning and Teaching frameworks were very much in evidence over the past several weeks as teachers facilitated the involvement of their students in researching a variety of significant questions and topics and sharing their findings through displays and presentations. In addition to sharing through classroom open houses, representatives of grade 5 to 9 students were selected to participate in the school Science Fair on February 6. Commendations are extended to the organizers of this event - Mr. Kevin Sonico and Ms. Erin Couillard - for all of their work in organizing the Science Fair and making arrangements for over 30 volunteer judges and the very impressive displays of the student inquiries in the gymnasium. The judges spent the morning interviewing the students, providing feedback, determining award winners and selecting those who would go on to the Calgary Youth Science Fair. In the afternoon, all of the CSS students and the general public had an opportunity to view the displays and talk to students about their inquiries. There were many comments praising the creativity, innovativeness and quality of work of the students, which was most representative of the Calgary Science School descriptors of exemplary learning and teaching. The active involvement of teachers as facilitators and mentors is greatly appreciated and congratulations are extended to all of the students who participated in the Science Fair and Explorer activities. Charter School Research and Leadership Development The Calgary Science School, as one of the 13 charter schools in the province and a member of The Association of Alberta Public Charter Schools, is involved in a research project designed to investigate the role of charter schools and the impact of charter schools on education in Alberta as centres of research, innovation and the development of exemplary practices. Researchers Dr. Dianne Gereluk and Dr. Eugene Koch, professors from the University of Calgary, have been conducting interviews and gathering information in regard to the work of each charter school. They were in the Calgary Science School on January 24 to interview Dr. McKinnon and they will be conducting further interviews in the school in the future.

Dragons’ Den

from the February Board Meeting Calgary Science School Research Initiatives The Calgary Science School, as a University of Calgary Partner Research School, is working in partnership with the Rocky View School Division in developing a research proposal involving University of Calgary faculty. This research project focuses on studying the involvement of CSS teachers and administrators in a joint venture with Rocky View teachers and administrators in collaboratively developing a deeper understanding of strategies for engaging students as learners through inquiry. Student Teacher Initiatives in the Calgary Science School The Calgary Science School actively seeks out opportunities to serve as a partner school for student teachers. In the first half of the school year there have been over 120 student teachers from the University of Calgary, Mount Royal University and the University of Lethbridge in the school to learn about the unique approach to learning and teaching in the Calgary Science School, in keeping with the charter mandate. In mid February, 10 student teachers from the University of Calgary began an eight week period in the school as they complete their practicum requirements prior to certification. As well, a student teacher from the University of Lethbridge has been in the school since January in completing her final semester of teacher preparation. 2013–14 School Year Budget Preparation Preliminary work has begun on identifying needs and priorities for the next school year and the process of developing a proposed budget through the Audit and Finance committee will begin in early March when Alberta Education funding is announced following the presentation of the provincial budget in the legislature. Admissions Process for 2013-2014 Our admissions process began at the end of January with open house presentations for the first 200 families on the grade 4 waitlist (plus a few students from the waitlists for the other grades as well). There was a great turnout, with approximately 350 people attending the two sessions. We have since held two school tours for those same families, where CSS students acted as tour guides for small groups of parents. The first day of tours was a Saturday, but the second was during a regular school day. Our student tour guides did an incredible job of helping prospective CSS parents learn more about our school so they can make an informed decision about whether to send their child here. Kathy, Nola and Susan in the office and our caretaking staff have been invaluable in making the open houses and school tours so successful.

CSS Grade 7 Students Make Their Pitch at the Calgary Dragon’s Den Auditions Have you ever been faced with a dead cell phone at the worst possible time? Or worse, you’re working on your laptop and that little battery indicator goes into the red with nowhere to plugin? Well, so have grade 7 students Spencer P., Joseph H. and Ian V. When they were challenged in their U-Create elective to come up with a product or service idea they were passionate about, they knew what they were going to pitch their classmates. Their must-have idea was a backpack and hoodie that uses solar energy to charge your electronic devices. Little did they know at the time that they’d take their idea well beyond the walls of CSS. Spencer explained the genesis of their product. “Me and Joey had the idea where we would have a solar panel hooked up to a battery inside a backpack where you could charge your electronic devices, mainly a laptop. We call it Lunar Gear.” An experience that Ian later relayed made them think about expanding their idea. “On my bus, somebody needed to use their phone but it had died. The bus was late and they were kind of freaking out about it because they needed to contact their parents, he explained. “Then we thought about apparel.” added Spencer. Joseph went on to further explain their idea. “We thought about something called a “Lunar Hoodie” where there’s a clip on the hooodie that transfers the solar energy from the backpack.” “The power runs from the collar of the hoodie to the pouch where it has a USB plug-in that can be used to charge your hand-held device,” added Ian. “We were planning to package the hoodie and backpack together at a reduced price.” Soon, their teacher Ms. Pereverzoff shared the idea of taking part in the CBC’s Dragons’ Den auditions in Calgary on Saturday,

February 23. In preparation, the class watched episodes of Dragons’ Den, particularly those involving students. The boys then made their decision to audition. “We wanted to see if the Dragons could help us with marketing and manufacturing our product,” explained Ian. The boys prepared in and out of class, filming a commercial and practicing their presentation. The eve of their big day saw them convening at Spencer’s house for a sleepover and to put the finishing touch on their presentation. “We practiced ‘til about 11:00 pm and then ate a bunch of candy and pop and didn’t’ get to sleep for a while,” relayed Ian. “We got up at 7:00 and got ready.” The boys arrived at Mount Royal University at 9:30 and waited with Ms. Pereverzoff for close to 5 hours before it was time for their 5 minute audition. They made their pitch and it was over almost as soon as it started. When asked if they got any feedback from their audience, the show’s producers, Ian replied, “No, unfortunately. They don’t give much away. They just look at you with a blank face.” “Actually, the one guy looked interested,” interjected Spencer. Given that the show takes a“don’t call us, we’ll call you”approach, the boys are now left to wait and see if they’ll get the call to be on the show and present to the real Dragons in Toronto. “If we get the call, we’ll look at developing a prototype,” explained Joseph. When asked whether the experience was worth it, the boys gave an enthusiastic “Yes!”. “If we don’t get called back, we might audition again next year, either with a different product or by changing things with our current product,” added Spencer.

on the first night, I desperately wanted to go back home. No one was expecting the program to be so rigorous and tough, and so everyone was equally nervous. In my opinion, that built a strong bond between all of us and it helped make us a better team.

Empowering

By the time I came out of the camp, I felt that I could trust each person that had experience this with me because we had built such strong relationships with each other. I had learned to put my trust in all of the people that went to camp with me through many team activities and exercises. I realized that I was talking to more people than I did before I went to camp and I realized that more people started to talk to me as well. I learned to have trust in the people around me, and I also learned how to further develop trust with people as well. I now think that I can be more trustworthy with people I do this program to anyone. This program changed my outlook on not know and that strangers aren’t always as bad as you think how to talk to people and how to work with them efficiently as they are. well. I believe that this program has taught me something new about the world, the people around me and even myself. I think I believe that this camp was a really beneficial experience that by the end of that program, we truly were empowered! for everyone who went and I would definitely recommend

Minds

Grade 9 Students Participate in Student Leadership Weekend By Anagh K. Grade 9 Student Empowering Minds is exactly what it sounds like; it empowers you to think and act like a leader and to be the “first one on the dance floor” when you have the opportunity. It was a rewarding experience that I will definitely not forget for the rest of my life. While there, I learned many life skills that will not only help me succeed in leadership, but also in family relationships and in communication. Through many different activities, we learned to trust ourselves and believe in everything that we do. We learned to be proud of everything we say and we also learned that throughout life, your family will be the most supportive and they will always love you. It was definitely a different experience and I believe that everyone should get an opportunity to go to this camp. It was very beneficial for me, as I had a completely different view of what leadership looked like before I went to the camp. On Thursday morning, I went to Camp Chestermere with 28 other grade 9 students, completely unaware as to what would happen at camp. It didn’t occur to me that this would be such a mentally and emotionally challenging camp, and

All in the Name of Science

“I talked to Grade 5 kids that speak more professionally than university students I’ve been around. It’s cool to see how creative and how driven they are.” Mr. Rudolf seemed most impressed with the manner in which students’ work resembled the thinking and processes he himself engages in the work he’s doing in his Bachelor

Grade 5 Students Nicole H., Claire L. and Katie B. showing off a practical applicaion of their Science Fair project.

Science Fair judges hard at work tallying their evaluations of Science program. “I see parallels between what I’m doing in university right now and what these kids are doing,” he related. “The level with which they adhere to the scientific method is impressive. They follow it effortlessly, it’s all very clear to the students.” Grade 5’s Nikolai A. and his project Insulation and Energy Mr. Rudolf echoed the sentiments of other judges in Efficiency describing how difficult a task it was to evaluate the projects “it’s a really interesting topic and there’s a lot of science to it relative to each other. “The projects are all so different, which and people need to know more about it,” added Lola. “People makes it difficult to compare,” he reflected. need to know the effect food deprivation and eating disorders What is evident year after year is the enthusiam that students have on your brain and learning.” have for not only their own projects but learning about the

Students Bring Inquiry to Life at the Annual CSS Science Fair Wednesday, February 6 saw the annual Science Fair grace the Calgary Science School gymnasium. 57 students produced 51 different projects on display for judges, parents and fellow students.

“We live in an old bungalow and were planning to insulate it. I wanted to find out if it was worth it,” explained Nikolai when asked how he got the idea for his project. With this in mind, he made a plan to answer his question.

Science Fair has always served as a model and vehicle for inquiry-based learning at CSS. The scientific method of questioning, hypothesizing, testing and generating conclusions essentially spawned the inquiry-based model which we put into action as teachers and learners everyday.

“I actually did 2 experiments,” Nikolai described. “One was to see if the air inside an insulated box would warm up quicker and to a higher temperature than a non-insulated box. For the second experiment, I brought the 2 boxes, insulated and non-insulated, outside to see how fast they cooled down. The non-insulated box cooled down way faster than the insulated box. It also cooled down in 2 hours to a temperature that the insulated box took almost 10 hours to drop down to.”

Each Science Fair project emerged from a single, big question representing a range of scientific disciplines. Many projects had an environmental focus, particularly in the areas of alternative energy and energy conservation. With students given the freedom to investigate any topic of interest, it was especially interesting to see students take on questions with practical applications in their lives, like grade 5 student Nikolai A.’s Insulation and Energy Efficiency project.

Grade 9 students Sadie C. and Lola H. took their inspiration for their project from an unlikely source. “We did a novel study about a girl with an eating disorder and I wanted to know more about it,” reflected Sadie.

www.calgaryscienceschool.com

The girls included 5 classmates in their research in which they had each of them eat a normal diet one day on which they took a test. Another day, they had the same classmates reduce their food comsumption to only 400 total calories for breakfast and lunch. The students rewrote the same test they had previously taken and actually scored worse.

topics that others have tackled as well. “You get to see what others’ interests are,” explained Sadie. “Some of the topics people choose are unique,” continued Lola. “You learn a lot about your own topic but also a lot about others’ topics,” she added.

In addition to the guidance of teachers and the hard work of students, the participation of over 30 judges is a key element to the success of the CSS Science Fair and this year was no exception. People from many walks of life, ranging from CSS parents and former students to regular Calgarians responding to an invitation from a CSS-connected co-worker or friend all assisted in judging the projects. Mike Rudolf is a former colleague of CSS Math/Science teacher Mr. Cadman when the two worked as outdoor camp guides. A 4th year biology student at the University of Calgary thinking about entering education, Mr. Rudolf was impressed with the level of student work he observed in his role as a judge. “The level of knowledge and work that the kids have put in is Grade 9 student Lola H. and Sadie C. and their project Food something I don’t remember at this level,” Mr. Rudolf explained.

On a balmy, February Friday, 6.1 and 6.2 students recently shared the children’s books they had completed as part of a cross-curricular project with young Lakeview Pre-School students. The visit was the culmination of a project that began in the fall with an initial science focus. As part of the Trees and Forests grade 6 Science unit, students began by heading down to the Weaselhead and scouting out a tree to “adopt”. 6.1 student Parker S. explains: “We measured the tree we chose, determined what kind of area it was in, what leaves it produced, and investigated what it might look like in the future,” he explained. “We took the scientific facts about trees, and our tree in particular, and created a children’s story. My story incorporated physical characteristics of the tree in developing its personality.” Students’ work in developing their stories included working alongside a local artist (see photo, right) in designing a cover that reflected the theme of the book as well as the many illustrations that are the crux of a good children’s book. So, it seemed logical that students would take their books to the audience they were intended for. After a few e-mails, a visit for the classes to both the morning and afternoon Lakeview

Pre-School classess was arranged. “Ms. Stogre thought since we were writing these stories for children, maybe we could actually read them to real children,” commented 6.1 student Rachel B. And how was the experience reading your own children’s book to a group of pre-schoolers? “It was fun, I thought it was a good experience for the younger kids to have bigger kids come in and read to them,” reflected Rachel. Parker shared that he had a newfound appreciation for the challenges of maintaining a 3 year old’s attention. “There was a group of 3 of us reading to a couple of kids. They were listening during the first story, then kind of looking around and getting fidgety during the second. By the third book, they were running around playing Star Wars!,” he shared.
