Principal’s Message

The girls and young women of CGS are agents of change who develop
confidence and a strong sense of self in a safe,   collaborative, inquiry-based learning environment.

CGS October 16 to 20 Update:

Hello everyone.

After a bit of winter, we have moved back into autumn. It is still quite cool in the mornings and the wind brisk so bringing appropriate clothing for going outside for breaks and lunch recess is important. Other than that, this weather really allows for a full Calgary autumn.

Tribute Assembly

On Thursday afternoon at 1:30, we will hold a tribute assembly for Mr. Quan Le at NGP. It will help us find some closure after this tragic event. We will have some room for parents and alumni but the girls will take up most of the gym. We hope to have some overflow in the lounge up above the gym but space will be limited. The assembly will be about 45 minutes with an introduction, a few words, a slideshow, a shared song, and a presentation to Ms. Wanda Le. Students and teachers will then return to CGS to share a snack and conversation.

We do not want Mrs. Le to feel overwhelmed so will ask the girls, parents, and alumni to refrain from individually passing on their condolences to her. The tribute assembly is designed to be CGS’s celebration of Mr. Le’s time with us. Thank you for your understanding and support.

This celebration of life is to allow closure for the CGS community as the memorial service location on Saturday is rather small and will be reserved for close family and friends.

We are looking for parent volunteers for this event. If you are able to assist with audio setup, gym setup at NGP (10), handing out treats (10), or assisting with clean up after the event (10), please contact council@calgarygirlsschool.com to let us know what you are able to assist with. Set up will be Thursday morning from 9:00. Clean up needs to happen after the event at 2:15. Thank you in advance.

Parents can support their daughters by continued conversations at home. We will keep you posted in regard to any other events taking place in the memory of Quan Le.

Photo retakes

School photo retakes are at Lakeview on Tuesday and Bel Aire on Wednesday. Full formal attire is worn for photos.

Volleyball

Volleyball continues for the week as well. See the Athletics Wiki for more information.

High School Info

Henry Wisewood HS comes to visit on Thursday at noon for girls interested in finding out more about their opportunities. The session will be in the learning commons.

Apples

We have about 45 boxes of apples left in our gym. While very fragrant, it would be good if you had these apples at home to enjoy. Please stop by the office or contact one of our delightful school council representatives to arrange pickup of your apples.

 

Regards,

Wes Malo, Principal
