May 2015 Principal's Message

Our student registration process for the fall of 2015 is now almost complete; there are still a few student registration forms that we are trying to track down. We will be trying our best to make sure that all students receive the courses they have selected. However, from time to time students may not get everything that they have selected. This is usually due to the fact that there is a scheduling conflict between courses that are only offered one time during the year. Also, if students were late with returning their registration forms, a particular course may have reached maximum enrollment. I would like to thank Mrs. Enyedy, Mrs. Lovell and all other staff members involved in our registration process for their time and energy spent in making sure that all of the meticulous details are taken care of. Our school truly appreciates all of your efforts, time and commitment concerning our student registration process to ensure that things run smoothly.

Continuing in September 2015, Clearview School Division will be entering into the ninth year of embedded Professional Development for all of their teaching staff. Embedded Professional Development allows teachers in all Clearview schools the opportunities to work with the same grade and subject colleagues to plan units, lessons and projects together. It also gives teachers an opportunity to share common assessments, evaluations, teaching strategies, best practices and resources within their areas of expertise. Also, next year teachers will again be spending time understanding and implementing the Ministerial Order, Curriculum Prototyping and the Inspiring Education document. Our staff will also be starting to work more with Google Apps For Education (GAFE) in our classrooms as well as continuing with Project Based Learning as part of the regular classroom-learning environment. The days of our Divisional Collaborative times have changed and now include some full days of Professional Development time to allow our teachers more flexibility in how the collaborative P.D. time may be utilized. Next year's school division calendar is also on-line on the division's website and there will be a calendar mailed home in August that will outline all of the Embedded Professional Development days in which the students will be released early or may not have school. Also continuing in September 2015, Clearview School Division and Wm. E. Hay Stettler Secondary Campus will be continuing with the refining of the delivery of our courses in a competency (mastery) based fashion as well as student assessment, evaluation, grading and reporting to reflect this practice.

The “High School Flexibility Enhancement Pilot Project” officially ended in June of 2013. However, I am very excited and pleased to announce that Alberta Education has decided to continue to move forward with this initiative. This new initiative is known as “The Moving Forward With High School Re-Design” and Wm. E. Hay Stettler Secondary Campus is a part of this educational shift. As a reminder, the objective of this initiative is to investigate the significance of the “Carnegie” unit, which equates the granting of high school credits based on the amount of time students spend with face-to-face instruction from their teachers. As a part of this change, our school will be continuing to investigate how we might be able to continue to redesign our current educational structure to better meet the needs of the 21st century learners in our schools. There will be more information coming home in subsequent newsletters to keep you informed of any other changes to our school upcoming for next year. We have completed one round of the “Tell Them From Me Surveys” and we will be doing another round of surveys towards the end of May in order to find out what our students think about our current educational model and to listen to their suggestions to improve our school and their learning. During round two of the TTFM survey we are hoping to survey the current grade 6, 7 and 8 SMS students to get their opinions regarding how we are meeting their current educational needs as a school. Once this data is collected, we will use it to help in determining some of our decisions for next school year as we amalgamate into the Wm. E. Hay Stettler Secondary Campus.  I will be continuing to host student and parent focus groups, to listen to the students, parents and community voices to discuss various options as to how we can improve to offer the best educational programs possible.  

Wm. E. Hay Graduation is fast approaching on May 23rd and students are busy preparing for this very special and memorable day.  I would like to congratulate Ms. Kiersten Docherty on being named this year's valedictorian. Please remind your graduating student that they will need to be present at all the grad practices for the week of May 19th to May 22nd. There will be busses transporting the students to and from the arena for rehearsal practices during this week and students need to remember that they are not allowed to transport themselves.

As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to call Mr. Baharally, school principal, at 403-742-3466 or e-mail
