Our School

Sundance School Vision 

To provide a learning community that responds quickly and effectively to the changing individual and collective needs of our students. Sundance Elementary is committed to the development of each child’s potential, to the building of each child’s positive self-concept and to nurturing a desire for life-long learning in each child.

The Sundance School Community

  • Understands that attending to school culture is the most effective way to ensure an environment in which children are safe and meaningfully engaged
  • Understands that learning needs to be structured toward, and responsive to, an increasing number of learner complexities
  • Is enriched by the shared commitment of staff, students and parents
  • Is committed to using inquiry as a means of engaging learners in meaningful curricular work

Sundance School Name

The Sundance community was named in honour of the greatest festival of the First Nations of the Plains - the Sun Dance. The park and lake provide a focal point for the entire community and the first school built in the area was logically named Sundance School.

​​School Development Plan

​Each year, our school prepares a development plan with input from teachers, school staff, students and parents. We review many sources of data, including report cards, provincial achievement test results and school surveys. Based on this information, we create our plan identifying targeted areas for growth. Our school development plan is not meant to represent all of the work that takes place in our school, but rather it focuses on specific areas for improvement.​​​

​​School Improvement Results Report

Our school also prepares a results plan, which looks at our previous school year. It shows our students’ achievement and progress in meeting the goals and outcomes as set out by the CBE and Alberta Education, outlines some of the highlights of our school development plan and gives an overview of our school. You can look on the CBE website for system-wide results​.
