Positive School Climate
A major goal of our school is to help promote a positive school climate. School climate is the feel of our school – the mood and atmosphere you sense the moment you enter the school. We feel teachers, parents and students at A. B. Daley already interact in a very positive fashion but this doesn’t mean we can’t find ways to maintain and improve the good things happening here and involve as many people as possible.
Parents, grandparents and other willing persons are welcome to assist at our school. Let your child’s teacher know if you are willing to help.
We encourage parents to take an active interest in their children’s education. Research has shown that children do better in school and grow up to be more successful in life when their parents and families get personally involved in education. Feel free to talk to teachers and administration if you have any questions.
Due to work schedules and little ones at home, many parents are not able to come in to volunteer. Parents, the time you spend with your child at home reading and doing other school related work is a huge contribution!
In an effort to keep our students as safe as possible Livingstone Range School Division requires all volunteers to have a Criminal Record check done and complete a volunteer application form. The local detachment of the RCMP is open to do the Criminal Record check free of charge .
School Board Trustees make decisions about how education is delivered locally-including the operations of schools. School Board policies directly impact the development of our children and affect community interests.
3 Way Conferences
Due to the proven success 3-Way Conferences have once again been scheduled. The parent, student and homeroom teacher use this opportunity to discuss goals and evaluate progress.
Please call the office to make your appointment. See the calendar for dates.
As a Community School we traditionally tied our local community and district to enhance our grade level subjects. Sometimes we venture a little further to the Calgary and Lethbridge areas. We find that planned excursions often bring more excitement to classroom studies.
In keeping with Livingstone Range School Division policy, parent helpers on field trips are considered volunteers hence they need to check with the school office well before the trip so we can go through the necessary steps as per our volunteer policy.
Because our field trips are planned by each teacher for their own classroom, younger or older brothers and sisters in other grades would not be attending these field trips.
Communication between home and school is most important. Parents should check student’s agenda each night for notes from the teachers, the school and others from the community.
School spirit is alive and well at the “Thanks for Caring” assemblies held in the amphitheater the first Friday of each month at 12:30 PM. There will usually be special entertainment or speakers and “Gotcha Awards” are presented to those people who have been noticed practicing the virtues learned. The assembly ends with the school song. Parents and friends are welcome to join in the celebration of success.
Suitable footwear should be worn for the weather condition. Students are asked to remove their outside footwear in the entrances and place them on the appropriate shelves.
It is important to wear non marking inside shoes for health and safety of the student as well as to protect our new carpet and gym floor.

Student Intake Procedure
An appointment will be made for all in-coming students with the Principal, Assistant Principal or Learning Support teacher to complete an in-take interview. This allows the school time to arrange appropriate placement, materials, training and required supports, if necessary. The student(s) will not start school until all of the above are in place. We know that students will experience more success at A.B. Daley School with proper planning. Appointments and registration can be arranged by calling our office at 403 646-3161.
