Dear Andrew Sibbald Families,  

We hope that you have enjoyed some excellent time together over the long weekend!  


We will continue to follow the air quality guidelines for outdoor activities outlined here, as we are impacted by the wildfires in Alberta. Thank you to our whole school community for being flexible and responsive, and demonstrating empathy to those deeply impacted by the wildfires, including evacuees.  


2023-2024 Kindergarten Orientation – Thursday Evening  

We look forward to welcoming parents and children to our 'Welcome to Kindergarten' evening on Thursday night at 6:00 p.m. inside our school gym. We will share information about kindergarten programming in the Calgary Board of Education and at Andrew Sibbald School and do a tour of the kindergarten classroom. Each family will also receive an envelope with valuable information included.   


Big Brave Event – Friday Morning 

Andrew Sibbald School Community – Wow! You are amazing. Well over half of our student population is participating in the 19th annual Big Brave Event and working to demonstrate their commitment to kids and families impacted by cancer. It has been inspiring to see the work that students, families, and community members are taking up to bring their brave this year! Thank you to Ms. Hatchette, Miss Craik, Mrs. Drever and Mr. Newman for leading the charge and organizing this event for our school community. And we wish to extend our sincerest thank you to you and your families for your support, as well as the Kids Cancer Care Foundation of Alberta. We are so excited for this event which will take place on Friday morning at 9:00 a.m. inside our gym. If you have not already, please check out the website here. Be ready to get inspired! 



Congrats to Sibbald Students for Participation in the Mount Royal Math Contest 

We are so proud of all our Grades 4-6 students who chose to participate in this year's Mount Royal Math Contest. Several of our students were honored last week for having made the top 25% of student scores from across the city. Way to represent, Sibbald students! 


A Message from ASPA - Bottle Drive Fundraiser on Wednesday, May 24th  

The bottle drive is this Wednesday! Parents are invited to bring donations to the school when they are dropping off and picking up their children. The staff parking lot will not be available for parking or drive-through use, during school hours. A table for collection will be at the main front doors before 8 am and again before 2:40pm. Then, from 3:30pm to 6pm, the Skip the Depot truck will be in the parking lot. At this time, anyone is welcome to drop their bottles off: parents, grandparents, friends, and the greater community. Let's make this a success and help the students in their goal of building the Gaga Ball Pit.  


Thanks for your support,  

Andrew Sibbald Parent Association 

Reminder - Supervision begins at 7:50 a.m.  

Parents, just a gentle reminder that student supervision and entry into the school begins at 7:50. We've noticed students coming to the playground quite early in the morning unsupervised to play. Please know we cannot be responsible for student safety prior to 7:50 and if students come to play before school, they must be supervised by a parent or guardian. Thank you for your understanding.  ​
