Thanks to all parents who came out to see our Halloween parade. The students loved showing off their costumes.

It appears winter is now here! Please make sure your child is coming to school with the appropriate clothing to be warm and dry outside.


We are so pleased to be starting a Patroller program at Banff Trail. All grade 5 and 6 students are eligible to participate. Our Community Resource Officer, Rich Valstar on Tuesday November 6, 2018, will train those interested.

Trickster Residency

Thanks to our staff who dedicated their time and efforts into writing a grant, and our School Council for support, we are able to offer our students and amazing drama opportunity. The residency will occur December 10 to 14th with a school wide production on the Friday.  We will post the time as we get closer and have more details. We are looking for parent volunteers to help so if you are able please refer to the email sent yesterday to sign up.

Happy Halloween!

Hard to believe we may get a Halloween without snow.

Halloween Parade

This year we will again be having a Halloween parade so all students and any parents who wish to come can see all the costumes. Students can dress up in the afternoon only so if your child wishes to participate please send a costume with them that they can manage. NO weapons or masks allowed.

Parents are welcome to come see the parade as well. It will begin at 1:00 pm. As we have large numbers of students this year, we will be organizing the parade differently.  All students will assemble in the gym and parents will be in the foyer. Students will parade class by class, first in the gym and then do a loop through the foyer for parents.

Jacket Racket

Thanks to all the families who donated. Your generosity is overwhelming. Many students will benefit and have warm clothing this winter thanks to you!  Also thanks to Colleen Johe for organizing.


We now have new crosswalks! Patrol training will be Tuesday November 6th.  A letter will be coming home later this week for you to sign if your child would like to participate.

Have a great week!

Bonjour tout le monde!

Another busy week has flown by.  Thanks to all who helped make the dance last Friday such a great and fun time. Students have been chatting about it all week.

Jacket Racket

This year Banff Trail has been invite to support Jacket Racket. The goal of this volunteer organization is to provide all children in Calgary with winter clothing.  If you have new or gently used items like coats, mitts, hats or boots you would like to donate we will be collecting them during parent teacher interviews next week. Please bring them in when you come to see your child’s teacher.

Parent Teacher Interviews

We will be having interviews Thursday October 25th from 3:30 to 7:30 and Friday October 26th from 8:30 to 12:30. Please go online and book through My CBE Powerschool. If you are struggling, please refer to the email sent earlier this week or call the office.

Admazing Coupon Books

We still have some to sell! If you would like more, please contact the office.

Halloween is coming!

We will once again be having a Halloween parade in the afternoon. As our numbers are large this year, we will need to be changing how we are organizing. Students will be in the gym all together and they will parade across the stage class by class and then though the foyer where we will have room for parents to meet and see the costumes. Our hallways are too small and the number of students is too large to have the parade throughout the school so we hope this will an easier way for all the great costumes to be shown off. Who knows should the nice weather continue an outside parade could be possible. You will receive more information from your classroom teacher in the near future.


Have a great week!
