School Supply Lists

School supply lists are distributed by teachers during the first week of school.

For the 2022-23 school year, a student supplies fee will apply to all students in kindergarten through grade 4. The fee supports in offsetting the cost to purchase supplies like pens, pencils, and erasers so that students have the tools to learn from their first day in class. Student supplies fees will be assigned after September 2022.

Students will need a backpack and a pair of indoor shoes that are to be left at school.  If you'd like to send your child with a water bottle, please make sure it is not breakable. Please mark all your child's belongings with their name clearly.

School Calendar

We are a school that follows the Modified calendar. View our School Calendar for upcoming events and dates.
For system calendars, please visit: http://www.cbe.ab.ca/registration/calendars.

Lunch Supervision

Lunchtime is from 11:50 AM to 12:40 PM and we have a 4-day lunch supervision program available. View our Lunch Supervision page for information how to register.

Families who wants to register their children in the lunchroom program must register online. The best way to register your child is by going to preregister them using MyCBE account. 

Food in School

Within the health curriculum the students learn about healthy eating. Having a lunch filled with fruits, vegetables, sandwiches and other healthy foods will ensure your child is able to focus on his/her studies for the afternoon classes. Please assist us with educating the students with regards to healthy eating by providing a well-balanced lunch.

We would like to thank all of Taradale parents for providing their children with healthy, nutritious snacks and lunches on a daily basis. Parents are reminded to discuss with their children the importance of only eating their own snacks and lunches to prevent the sharing of food. We have students in our schoolhouse who have severe allergies to peanuts, cashews and other food sources which if eaten could create a medical difficulty. Please minimize the amount of peanut products in your child’s snacks and lunches.

Working together to teach our students to eat only their own food and not sharing, as well as to be aware and sensitive to each other’s allergies, is key in maintaining a safe environment for all of our Taradale students.

Assigned Teachers

Please arrive at the school at approximately 8:05 – 8:10 AM.

  • All teachers will greet children outside.  
  • An email message will be sent by the classroom teacher identifying Teacher Name and Room Number.
  • We will begin a Gradual Entry at 8:09 AM and students will enter
  • A school package will be sent home at the beginning of the school year which includes the school calendar, fees, information on lunchroom program, required forms.

Registration Information

Please visit our How to Register page for all registration details and registration forms.

Our school office opens on Wednesday, August 10th for registration.
