School Supply Lists
Supplies are purchased by the school. Please ensure your child has a pair of indoor runners, a lunch bag (if you are part of the Noon Supervision program) and a backpack.
Indoor shoes are brought to school the first day of school and left at school.
Many backpacks and shoes look alike; please label all student possessions.
We are a school that follows the traditional calendar. View our school's Calendar for upcoming events and dates.
In order to eat lunch at school in our lunchroom program, all students must be registered. We do offer a school-based 4-day noon supervision program to our Grades 1-6 students.
Snacks and lunches should be easy for children to manage. Hot water and microwaves are not accessible for students.
During lunch recess, supervision is provided for students attending the lunch program. Students who go home for lunch should return no more than 5 minutes prior to their entry time and line up with their class to re-enter school.
Please remember to call our main office to report a child’s absence/drop-in at 403-817-3408 (ext.0)
Registration and payment can be done through MyCBE/PowerSchool account.
For more specific information as to cost and registration procedures, please see our Noon Supervision page.
Typically class lists are posted outside near the front entrance on the first morning of school, however due to COVID restrictions on mass gatherings, expect to receive an email from your child's homeroom teacher on the evening of Aug. 31, 2020 welcoming you to their class. Students will meet their teachers outside of the school at a determined time and meeting place in the email. Teachers will have signs identifying who they are. We ask that parents ensure that they have taken pictures and said, “Good bye” to their children before their teacher takes them to class. Parents will not be permitted to enter the building.
Unfortunately, we will not be able to enjoy our traditional "Muffin Mixer" social gathering hosted by our Parent Council on the first day of school. They typically provide muffins and refreshments and this has been a great way to connect with our learning community.
Please visit our How to Register page for registration details and forms. As mentioned, our school office will open on August 27, 2020 for registration.
School Parking Lot & Student Drop-Off
Please note that the parking lot is not available for student drop-off for safety reasons. We ask that you please respect the parking zones and driveway access along 36 Ave SW. Our parents create our own safety issues by parking too close to crosswalks and double-parking along this congested roadway during drop-off.
As we are a "community school" with no busing, we strongly encourage students to walk or bike/scooter to school. This is much safer for everyone, and offers a great opportunity to be physically active prior to school starting.
