We are excited to announce that Alberta Education has approved Holy Spirit Catholic Schools request for additional space at Father Leonard Van Tighem School. Two modular classes will be added to FLVT for the 2019-20 school year. Thank you to our Board of Trustees and central office staff for advocating for our students. Once we have more details we will share them with our school community.
In January, in order to help give our parents a better voice, we conducted a parent survey called ‘Asking Our Parents.’ We were pleased to have 65 parents respond to the survey. Some of the survey questions dealt with our School Council and those results will be shared at our School Council meeting on February 12 at 7 pm. Here are the results of the other questions and the planned action:
|Indoor Recesses Days
Action: We will continue to use -15C as our guiding temperature for indoor recesses.
| Virtue Vouchers
Action: We will be continuing this positive incentive program.
Action: We plan on posting class lists before school starts.
‘Away During the Day’ Student Cell Phone Policy
Action: We will be continuing ‘Away During the Day’ policy.
Action: We will be looking at changing to LifeTouch for next year.
| School Communication
Action: We will be continuing, but trying to improve current school communication practices.
Our parent survey is helping to give parents a voice at Father Leonard Van Tighem School. We hope to continue to use this strategy.
Thank you for your insights,
