Accountability Pillar Surveys were mailed out to all Grade 4 families last month.
Please consider taking the time to complete these surveys and send them back in to Alberta Learning. We use the information gathered from the surveys to enhance what is currently happening at Holy Spirit Academy. If you are unsure about some of the initiatives happening in the school, you can join us for our Gr. 4 Parent Engagement evening on Tuesday, February 5th at 7pm and complete a survey at the school. We will highlight special initiatives and highlight how we strive to support students. Surveys will be available in Tagalog and English for Grade 4 parents only. Your time and care in completing these surveys is appreciated and helps us enhance the work we are doing.
As you know the Grade 4 students have been working hard to research a specific region of Alberta and create a presentation to share with their peers. They have been presenting with their group this past week and if you would like to see your child's presentation, students are able to access it at home with their school email (@isidore.redeemer.ab.ca account) and can show it to you!
