​Dear Scenic Acres School community,

Well that brings to a conclusion another amazing year at Scenic Acres School. It was so great to see so many of you at the School Council breakfast. Thank you to Flora and Yvonne for their organization and to all the parent volunteers. Our amazing School Council (Chairs Jenny C and Krista S.) and parent volunteers supported so many enrichment activities and it was greatly appreciated.

We are happy and proud to provide a happy, calm environment where your children feel comfortable and confident enough to take risks with their learning. We have seen so much growth in reading ability, writing skill and with their numeracy ability. Please take some time in the evenings or on rainy days to keep that reading going so it remains exciting and fun.

We are proud of our amazing parent community who raised an unbelievable amount of money for the Terry Fox Run (Cancer Research) and in December we helped feed families in need with our food drive.

Scenic Acres School is one of the best kept secrets in Calgary and we are so proud of our students,  staff, and parent community. We want to keep striving for excellence and we can't do it without you!

Please get outside and enjoy the outdoors this summer and be safe. We will really miss our students and will be here to welcome them back on August 31, 2023. Kindergarten Surname A to L will start on August 31 in the morning (8:30-11:15am) and surname M to Z will start on Sept. 1 (8:30-11:15am).

(If your child is planning on moving to a new school for next year please let me know asap via email (bjgarner@cbe.ab.ca)).

Have an amazing summer,

Bill Garner, Principal

-Provincial funding has been extended! Ms.Bailey and Mr. Cooper will remain in their current roles to allow for Ms. Lockerbie to provide extra support to students who require it. 

-Beach Day on Friday. The students should still wear warm clothes to school and/for recess. Underneath the warm clothes could be sunglasses, sun hat, t-shirt/shorts and or/an Hawaiian lei. 

-We have had a few parents ask about Scenic Acres Hoodies/T-shirts. Please fill out this 10 second survey https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLScYgfW-Ei8JdLJk_dill_ZwiuaejlYPozKy4FUVvnPug9KZRQ/viewform?usp=sf_link to see if we should open the store this spring or wait until August.

A message from Parent Council:

Hello Scenic Acres School families,

A few updates:

The April council meeting has been moved from April 12 to April 26.  This meeting will still be held virtually.  A Microsoft Teams meeting link will be sent out closer to the meeting.  Public School Trustee Dana Downey will be joining us at 6:30pm and will be available for a short Q&A session.  Mr. Cooper will also be joining us with an update from the music room.  All parents and guardians of a student at the school are welcome to attend.  We hope to see you then!

Did you know that many employers offer a charitable employee donation matching program?  What does this mean?  If you work for a Corporation that offers this employee incentive and you volunteer for the school - your volunteer hours could result in a charitable donation to councils fundraising society!  For more information, please contact Jenny and Krista at sascchair@gmail.com.

Happy Holidays

Dear Scenic Acres School Families! 

-It was great to see so many of you at the Winter Concerts. We were so proud of the students and their performances. We did receive some messages from some grantparents in Edmonton & Medicine Hat watching the concerts from their home!. Some of you asked for the 12 Days of Scenic lyrics. Click on this link: 12 DAYS OF SCENIC.docx 

-There is NO school, Friday, December 23rd

-We are receiving emergency funding from the province and we are excited to announce that Ms. Bailey will be teaching the kindergarten students in the mornings and working with Ms. Lockerbie's class in the afternoon. Ms. Lockerbie will be working with the students identified as requiring extra support for the next three months (in the afternoons only). Mr. Cooper is also going to be around on Fridays and supporting the teachers in class, so that they can focus on their students who require extra support. We hope these intiatives will help to catch up some of our students who are behind in literacy and numeracy. 

-We said goodbye to Ms. Barrowcliff today in an assembly and Mr. Garner & Ms. Lockerbie interviewed some new Library Assistant candidates yesterday and hopefully will have someone in place asap. 

-The Scenic Acres teachers & staff just wanted to wish everyone a safe and happy holiday! We are truly blessed/lucky to we working with such amazing students and families. Happy Holidays and we will we see everyone back at school on January 9th, 2023!

Hello Scenic Acres Families,

Some very good news for Scenic Acres School:

"The Calgary Board of Education (CBE) would like to inform you of our work to balance enrolment at schools in northwest Calgary. We will make a grade configuration change to Scenic Acres school. This change will allow more students in your community to attend school closer to home. 

Effective for the 2023-24 school year, the following changes will be implemented:

▪ Scenic Acres School will change from a kindergarten to Grade 4 school to a kindergarten to Grade 5 school in the 2023-24 school year."

I'm to assume that this change will bring the school up to CBE preference capacity levels and it will remain open moving forward. Amazing news! 

Thank you!

We would like to thank Scenic Acres School families, students and teachers who fundraised for the Terry Fox Run an incredible $1750 for cancer research! Thank you to all those who contributed.

The last week of September, our students and staff spent time focusing on and honouring residential school survivors and those who did not make it home.

Scenic Acres school is privileged to be a part of the Ever Active School program which promotes walking, biking, scootering and drive/park/walk options.

Please fill out the survey sent from Mr. Garner.

We look forward to meeting with our parents at school conferences on Nov. 24 and 25.

June 2022 Principal Message

Dear Parents,

Thank you to everyone who showed up for the School Council pancake breakfast. The students had an amazing time with sports day on June 28. This is the type of day that students will never forget, and you helped to make this memory extra special. Thank you to our School Council; Jenny, Candice, Glenda, Alexis, Rebecca, Krista, Ashley, Adrianne, Laurie, Yvonne, Rita, Steve for their leadership, fundraising efforts and commitment to the school. Most of the unique experiences our students receive come from the support of our Parent Council. We cannot thank you enough for your time, energy and dedication. 

If you have any questions about back to school at the end of August, please visit our back to school page.

I just wanted to wish everyone a restful safe summer. I hope that there will be some dog walks, bike riding, hikes, and eating outdoors on the deck. I cannot thank our parents, students and staff for making my first year at Scenic Acres a very special one. The school community is the best and we have amazing students who treat each other with love and respect. 

Happy Holidays,

Mr. Bill Garner, Principal

September, 2021-Welcome Back!

​Dear parents and Scenic Acres Community,

I just wanted to welcome everyone back to the 2021-22 school year. It's unfortunate that we need to start the school year with COVID protocols, but at least we are starting face to face! My first few days as principal have been outstanding and I feel so lucky to be at Scenic Acres working with such amazing students, staff, and parents. 

We look forward to our parents joining us for our first School Council meeting virtually on Thursday, Sept. 9 at 6:30 pm. We will share the link with parents via Messenger. In addition to this meeting, there will be a Meet the Teacher event (virtually) set for Thursday, Sept. 23 (afternoon/evening) and Friday, Sept. 24. 

Email me with any questions, Mr. Bill Garner, bjgarner@cbe.ab.ca. 

Thank you, 

Mr. Garner, Principal
