The following is a list of student clubs that are offered by teachers (current as of Feb, 2018). They range from weekly offerings for significant time periods, to more seasonal based activities. Current offerings by teachers are based on skill set. Parents, should they have skills and interests that they would like to share with students are invited to contact administration- staff are most willing to sponsor parent led clubs!

Our patrol teams are trained and are working very hard at learning the new AMA procedures. They had their training with Constable Kovacs and Constable Van Weis in September and are now continuing to improve on the skills they learned with each round of duty at the crosswalk. Returning Grade 6 patrollers have been excellent role models and mentors for those new to the team, helping with little reminders and words of encouragement whenever possible. Patrol supervisors will continue to be intermittently present at the crosswalk to observe and help in guiding new patrollers as they work hard to master their skills.
By December 1 will also add a new crosswalk at our school. It will be located at the intersection of Silvergrove Drive NW and Silverstone Place NW. Fifteen more students will be trained to perform this work. Patrollers are at the crosswalk at the following times:
- 8:55 to 9:10 AM
- 12:15 to 12:30 PM
- 3:50 to 4:05 PM
There will be days and times when the crosswalk will not be attended by patrollers. When at all possible the dates and times will be posted ahead of time in the newsletter.
Times when the crosswalks will not be patrolled are:
- when the temperature is -20º Celsius or below with the wind chill
- when other weather conditions or situations arise that could put patrollers in a dangerous situation – for example, extreme weather, poor visibility or dangerous driving conditions
- when Grade 5/6 classes are on a fieldtrip
Thank you for your support.
