Homes for sale near Radisson Park School in Calgary.
Radisson Park School is a Kindergarten to Grade Five School that serves families in the communities of Albert Park and Radisson Heights.
The school opened in the fall of 2006 and was the first new school to be built in the greater Forest Lawn area in over 50 years. One of the first tasks that students were asked to do was to decide on a mascot that represented the excitement and uniqueness of the new school community. From the many student suggestions, the owl was chosen as the official Radisson Park mascot because it symbolizes our community:
Diverse – There are many types of owls.
Resilient – Owls adapt and can live in very harsh conditions and in different environments.
Respectful – Owls are very observant. They live and work well with other owls, and are helpful to nature.
Remarkable – Owls are very wise & very observant. They work hard, listen well, love to learn, and will do whatever it takes to succeed.
At Radisson Park School, learning is our central purpose. We work to personalize learning opportunities for “every student, every day, no exceptions.” Our school is organized into multi-aged classrooms, which provides an extended time for students and staff to build strong, positive relationships while students move forward with learning. This organization allows us to better celebrate diversity, and to recognize the unique strengths and talents of each student.
Teachers work closely together in grade teams and Professional Learning Communities to discuss and improve teaching and learning strategies in areas such as literacy, numeracy, task design, and assessment for learning. Each day teachers strive to provide engaging learning opportunities that focus on success for all students.

Promoting Alternative Thinking Skills (PATHS)
PATHS is a social-emotional learning program that all of our classrooms use. This program helps us to identify and understand feelings of ourselves and others, and also helps with friendship skills and problem-solving using the Control Signals Poster. Parents…do your children ever have difficulty calming down? You can use the control signals poster as a way to help your child gain control of their behavior.
Step 1 is the Red Light: Stop! Take a long, deep breath. Say the problem and how you feel.
Step 2 is the Yellow Light: Think! What can I do? Would it work?
Step 3 is the Green Light: Go! Try out your solution.
Your child is learning these steps to solve problems in the classroom during our PATHS lessons. Using the same steps at home will help your child remember and follow these steps more often when they have a problem. Helping your child solve their own problems builds self-esteem!
Building Resilient Learners
“Many, many failures equals success.” (Thomas Edison) Resiliency is defined as the ability to cope and bounce back from challenges and adversity. To be successful, students must try new things, take risks, develop personal learning strategies and talents, and learn from mistakes. To help students build resiliency, we work to understand and support each child based upon the Resiliency Wheel.
