  • C.A.P Thursdays at Johnny Bright

    C.A.P Thursdays at Johnny Bright

    Career and Academic Pathways or C.A.P Thursday has become part of our weekly timetable. Every Thursday our school will run a timetable that includes four 57 minute learning blocks followed by a 30-minute Health & Wellness block.   Students will be directed, on a Thursday, to 1-2 core learning support blocks where learning from the four core subjects will be supported and enhanced either through intervention or extension.  The remaining blocks will be selected by students and could include sessions from the fine arts, second languages, career pathways, a specific topic of interest, or an athletic activity.  The possibilities are endless and will be driven by student interest. Students will have the opportunity to work collaboratively with others and pursue interest areas beyond what has been offered traditionally.

     We are very excited about this new direction, as it creates more learning opportunities for our students along with exposure to the myriad of possibilities that will exist for them in post-secondary education, professions, trades, business and the world of work!  We encourage and support 21st-century learning for engaged thinkers and ethical citizens with an entrepreneurial spirit.

    All of our sessions relate to at least one of the competencies of an educated Albertan as outlined by the Ministry of Education.

    These include:

    • Know how to learn
    • Think critically
    • Identify and solve complex problems
    • Manage information
    • Innovate
    • Create opportunities through play, imagination, and competition
    • Apply multiple literacies: reading, writing, mathematics, technology
    • Demonstrate good communication skills
    • Work cooperatively with others
    • Demonstrate global and cultural understanding
    • Identify and apply career and life skills through personal growth and well being

    Parents and community members are also invited to be a part of C.A.P Thursday! If you have a passion, unique experience or a special talent or skill that you would like to share, we would love to have you!  We also invite parents and members of our community to come in and share information about their careers with us.

  • School Philosophy

    School Philosophy

    Johnny Bright staff are committed to creating a Professional Learning Community that supports all students learning at high levels. Teachers are focused on building a collaborative environment centered on essential learning outcomes, common assessments, and best practices. Project-based and innovative, authentic learning opportunities assist in building a setting where students demonstrate active learning and are engaged.  We value all stakeholders and believe we share a collective responsibility in building a safe, secure and caring environment. 

    In a technology-rich environment, staff provides students and parents with a variety of opportunities to communicate.  As a GOLD L.E.E.D. School, we are committed to a “green” footprint – our largely paperless communication relies on SchoolZone, our weekly Friday Update, and our Web site.  Students will be provided with the opportunity to acquire knowledge and develop 21st Century Literacy skills and attitudes necessary to become capable, connected and contributing members of our global society.

Principal's Message

At Johnny Bright School we believe that every student has the right to a high quality learning environment and to be challenged to reach their full potential.  Our outstanding educational facility has a reputation for committing to excellence in academics; athletics and activity for learning; and citizenship and community involvement.  

We believe that the quality of education is enhanced when home and school have a strong relationship. Our relationship relies on open and ongoing communication. The school handbook, school web site, social media, conferences, and personal contact are designed to assist parents in understanding our school context. Contact with the school and inquiries are encouraged and always welcome.

As principal, I am honoured to be able to work with Johnny Bright School, staff, students, parents, and community. We all play an important role in the success of children and our school. Shared goals and high standards for academic achievement and personal conduct help our students to succeed.    

Together, we will build the learners of today into the leaders of tomorrow.

Mrs. Kathleen Marzolf, Principal
