A Minute With Mme Amy: The view from the first floor (highlights from my week)


While I love my job every single day, this has been an exceptionally fun week in our ECE and elementary divisions!

A Minute With Mme Amy: The view from the first floor (highlights from my week)

On Wednesday morning, I was able to attend part of Mme Dorrance’s parent engagement session, on the topic of our school facilities. Although I am completing my ninth year at CFIS, it was fascinating to learn more details about the history of our school building and grounds, and exciting to explore possibilities for enhancements and expansion.

A Minute with Mme Amy - The View from the First Floor (highlights from my week):

On Monday, our professional development day was our annual CFIS Learning & Innovation Day: teachers from all grade levels shared their own expertise with their colleagues, allowing everyone to learn from one another. Our ECE teachers presented sessions on fine motor skills, literacy instruction, and early numeracy, which were attended by colleagues from many other grade levels and departments.

Independent Schools and the Public Good

The Association of Independent Schools and Colleges in Alberta (AISCA), of which CFIS is a member, produced two concise, straight-forward videos that address the importance of choice in education for Alberta parents and the benefits of maintaining provincial funding for independent schools. The videos are very informative and can be viewed on YouTube at the below weblinks:
