A message from the Chairs of the Foundation and Society Boards of Directors

Dear CFIS Families: 

We would like to update the CFIS community on the anticipated summer 2018 parking lot/playing fields development and science lab renovations. On May 3, 2018, the members of the Calgary International Language Foundation, which owns the school and grounds leased to the Calgary French and International School Society, voted unanimously to approve a resolution allowing the Foundation Board to seek mortgage financing, in the amount of $2.3 million, to develop the 4.5 acres of vacant land to the immediate east of the school’s baseball diamond.

A Minute With Mme Amy: Summer fun, the value of boredom, and deepest gratitude

As I sat down to start this week’s message, I found myself oddly emotional. This is the first year that I have sent a weekly email to all ECE families, and I did not anticipate what an important ritual it would become to close my office door for a little while every Friday, to reflect on my week and communicate with all of you. It is my sincere hope that these weekly notes have been helpful and positive for you, as well.

A Minute With Mme Amy: Bike rodeo, office visitors, and summer reading

Pedal Heads at Calgary French & International SchoolOur kindergarten students all brought their bikes and helmets to school on Tuesday, and participated in the Pedalheads bike rodeo safety program here in our schoolyard. While this program always requires some careful logistics, it is such a rich experience for the students.
