A reminder that Third Academy students are on a break for the entire week of February 13-17 and on February 20, 2023. This is to allow teachers to participate in professional development activities as well as to for all members of our community to enjoy Family Day.
Third Schools takes staff professional development very seriously. Not unlike our students, each staff member has their own personal development plan mapping out activities to improve their professional practice. We know that even exceptional teachers can improve their skills and knowledge. As a member of the Association of Independent Schools & Colleges in Alberta (AISCA), many Third Schools staff attend AISCA’s Annual Teacher Convention. This year’s theme is Literacy & Numeracy. Staff members also attend the Calgary City Teachers’ Convention. In addition to participating in these conferences, our staff is busy learning this week collectively with other members of their campus and individually. The goal is consistent with Third Academy’s vision: Student Success!
Did you know that Alberta was the first province in Canada to celebrate Family Day? Third Academy recognizes the importance of families and welcomes the opportunity for families to enjoy this February holiday. Not sure how to have fun this holiday weekend? For some ideas, many of which of are free, visit Family Fun Calgary!
Be sure to remind your student that we look forward to seeing all Third Academy students back at school, ready to learn, on Tuesday, February 21, 2023.
