Clearview celebrates Staff Appreciation Week

The Alberta School Councils’ Association and the Canadian Home and School Federation recognized Feb. 13-17 as Staff Appreciation Week.

This past week, Feb. 13-17 has been recognized by the Alberta School Councils’ Association and the Canadian Home and School Federation as the Staff Appreciation Week, and Clearview celebrated this with aplomb, making sure that their staff knew how special they were.

“During staff appreciation week, Clearview trustees personally deliver treats to all our schools,” said Board Chair Cheri Neitz. “We are grateful for the dedication and commitment of all our staff, who make each day brighter in the educational lives of our children.”

The purpose of this week was to encourage parents and the wider community to recognize the personal and professional contributions that Clearview teachers and school staff make to children and their education.

Every school has dedicated teachers and staff members such as secretaries, teacher assistants, bus drivers and custodians.

During the week, the trustees participated with a hands-on approach and showed their appreciation for the teachers.

According to Clearview Superintendent Peter Barron, many of the school councils hosted appreciation lunches at the schools to express their gratitude to the staff for making Clearview schools an awesome learning place.

Each staff member’s part in making the school year a success was appreciated.

World Read Aloud Day observed

On Thursday, Feb. 16, the World Read Aloud Day was observed at Clearview.

The event is designed to motivate children, teens, and adults worldwide to celebrate the power of words and creates a community of readers who take action to show the world that the right to literacy belongs to all people.

According to Clearview’s Peter Barron, World Read Aloud Day was celebrated by millions of people in more than 100 countries, with great participation awareness being raised about the word across the globe.

Studies show that literacy is the foundation for emotional and physical well-being, intellectual growth, and economic security.

Furthermore, reading aloud improves listening skills, vocabulary acquisition, and the understanding of common story themes and structures that will factor into children’s future success, according to a media release that Clearview sent out this past week.

Participants could use various cues to create a powerful, memorable read aloud experience. For instance, they could read the book beforehand to familiarize themselves with the story, making a note of places they wanted to stop and ask questions, or they could be animated and change their voice during the read aloud to match the expressions of the characters and emotions of the story.
