2018/2019 Learning Calendar
Clearview trustees approved the calendar for the 2018-19 school year during their last meeting on Mar. 1.
Next year’s calendar is similar to this year’s, in that school will start after the Labour Day weekend as opposed to previous years when it started at the end of August.
184 instruction days are listed with 92 in the first term from September to January, and 92 in the second term from the end of January until June.
Teachers will spend five days during the end of August preparing for the school year with Professional Development days, in addition to nine other dates set aside on the calendar.
Those P.D. days will fall on Oct. 5, Nov. 2, and Dec. 7, 2018, as well as Feb. 15, Mar. 7 and 8, Apr. 18, May 17 and Jun. 28, 2019.
From now on, administration will be bringing forth three year calendars to approve in principle. Trustees will still have the option to modify the calendars ahead of the upcoming school year.
Award of Merit/Clearview Star Award
Clearview Public Schools have also sent out nomination applications to the public for two annual awards.
The Clearview Award of Merit celebrates personal achievements of students and staff, both past and present, who have achieved excellence in a particular field, for which they have been recognized either provincially, nationally and/or internationally.
Meantime, the Clearview Star Award recognizes staff and community members who’ve made significant contributions to their school communities through volunteer efforts, as a community partner, or through support at the school community level.
Applications will be accepted until no later that 4:30 p.m on Tuesday, April 3. Full details can be found on Clearview’s website or from the central office in Stettler.
Trustees will then select up to two recipients for the Clearview Award of Merit and Clearview Star Award.
The awards will then be handed out at the Clearview Recognition Night happening on Thursday, June 7 at ‘The Hub’ at the Stettler Recreation Centre.
