Young children benefit from programs that provide opportunities for organized activities and purposeful play through which children explore the world around them. Alberta Education defines the instructional time for kindergarten as the “time where direct child-teacher interaction and supervision are maintained.”
Kindergarten students are provided with a minimum of 475 instructional hours each school year. The following 10 guiding principles provide a framework for kindergarten programming:
The Calgary Catholic School District believes in the importance of providing students with expanded opportunities to learn a second language.
We believe that language learning is an important part of a student’s education. Learning a second language greatly contributes to a student’s educational experiences, personal growth, and development of higher-level thinking skills.
French Immersion is a form of bilingual education. The Early French Immersion program enables students to develop functional fluency in French while ensuring they receive the advantages of an all-English program. Students are taught the curriculum mandated by Alberta Education using French as the medium for instruction. Students also have opportunities to participate in cultural events and extracurricular activities that enhance their understanding of the French language.
Students typically enter the Early French Immersion program at the kindergarten or Grade 1 level. This is because your child's progress in each grade will depend, in part, on the French language skills he or she has acquired in previous grades. No background in French is necessary to enter the program.
Students who have completed Grade 6 in an all-English regular program may enter a three-year Late Immersion program in Grade 7. Students are enrolled in separate Late Immersion classes for Grades 7 and 8 and are merged with Early Immersion students for Grade 9.
We take great pride at St. Matthew School to establish and nurture an environment of commitment and practice to Catholicity among students, staff, and parents. We create a learning community that empowers staff and students to problem solve in a creative, critical and flexible manner. We continue to enhance the quality of teaching and learning to promote academic excellence and pride in all our school achievements. Our staff strives to foster effective, open lines of communication while organizing the trifocal partnership between home, school, and parish. We continually improve classroom instructional programs through a process of program review, student achievement analysis and teacher supervision and evaluation. We support a positive, collaborative school environment and a clear sense of community.
Alberta Education defines a basic education as one which provides students with a solid core program which includes Language Arts, Mathematics, Science and Social Studies. In our Catholic schools, Religious Education is also included in our core program.
Information and Communication Technology is a program included in the core curriculum in Language Arts, Mathematics, Science and Social Studies at all grade levels.
The Calgary Catholic School District provides a comprehensive liberal arts approach to teaching and learning in order to prepare students for post-secondary education and the world of work.
In addition to the core curriculum, other subjects are offered at various levels of education (elementary or junior high). Depending on your child’s grade, these may include Career and Technology Studies (Grade 8 & 9), Fine Arts, Physical Education and Health, and many more Option courses at the Junior High level.
We strive to use various technologies to further engage our students in the established curriculums. We have a technology teacher in Junior High at our school who supports our teachers and students in learning the various technologies that are most beneficial to teaching and learning such as:
With the support of our School Council, various school fundraisers and Government grants, we are blessed to have every classroom at École St. Matthew School equipped with an instructional laptop for every teacher, an LCD projector available for every classroom and a Smartboard in every classroom. In addition, we have 2 fully operating computer labs for student use.
The Educational Support II (ESII) programs are provided for students with moderate cognitive disabilities. These programs emphasize the development of essential and supportive skills including communication skills, motor skills, academic skills, and life skills. Students may require assistance for personal care and safety as well as close supervision and one-on-one intervention. Students may have significant communication and motor delays necessitating consultation with speech, physical and/or occupational therapists. Integration with age-appropriate peers occurs according to individual student needs, interests, skills, and abilities.
In elementary, students receive support with communication and academic skills based on their learner profile.
For junior high, the focus is on daily living skills with an emphasis on the functional application of academic skills.
The new religion program Growing in Faith, Growing in Christ has many digital resources for home, school, and parish. Login information was sent to librarians early in September.
