Grades 4-6 CTF Program
Dear Parents/ Guardians of Grades 4-6 Students,
This year A.B. Daley is excited to partner with J.T Foster school to offer some unique programming for our students. Career and Technology Foundations (CTF) is an Alberta Education approved program that allows students to explore their interests and passions as they learn about various career possibilities and occupational areas. Last year, A.B. Daley students participated in CTF and this year we are excited to be able to expand the program to offer introductions to Band, Shop and Sewing out of J.T Foster school. A.B. Daley will also host programs such as Robotics, Science Technology Engineering and Math, (STEM) challenges, as well as Digital Citizenship at the same time. Through the process of engaging in CTF class, students will learn valuable skills such as problem solving, collaboration, technology as well as utilizing numeracy and literacy knowledge related to their chosen topics.
Each child will be able to choose two areas of focus (we will rotate our sessions three times per year) and will participate in CTF for two periods per week. As part of the program, each student will be required to take Digital Citizenship and Media where they will practice safe use of technology. In order to maintain student safety and keep our group sizes small, only grade six students have the option to participate in the Band and Shop programs at J.T. Foster. The total cost associated with our CTF program will be $25.00 for the year. This fee will help offset the cost of project supplies, instrument rental/cleaning and shop materials. This fee can be paid through A.B. Daley’s School Cash Online Program https://lrsd.schoolcashonline.com/ . Please ensure payment is made prior to the start of programming on October 16th.
Please spend some time discussing the options with your child and return the attached form to A.B. Daley School by Friday September 28th, 2018. We will do our best to accommodate our students preferences as we feel it is important for students to engage in topics that interest them. Our program will start on October 16th, 2018 and we will be looking forward to hearing feedback from families this year in order to effectively meet students’ needs.
Please contact A.B. Daley School (403-646-3161) or email Jolene Becker (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you require more information regarding this program.
