  • We have daily morning and afternoon snacks as well as lunch.  The children are not allowed to share food.  No peanuts or nuts please -- we strive to be a nut-safe school.  Please send a labeled water bottle that students can leave at the school. 
  • We go outside for all recesses.  Please make sure your child has the appropriate footwear and clothing for the weather. We encourage students to wear shoes that are velcro or have stretched cords instead of lace up shoes.  It is also very helpful to have your child’s outdoor clothes labeled.
  • Please send an extra set of clothes (underwear, 1 pair of socks, shirt and pants) in a labeled ziploc bag. These clothes should remain at the school. 
  • All questions and concerns can be addressed through email or a phone call to the school (403 886 2233). 
  • School Council/Parent Society - all parents are welcome and encouraged to be a part of this parent group.  They meet the 3rd Wednesday of each month from 7:00 - 9:00 pm.  Check the school newsletter for meeting dates.

Kindergarten Supplies & Fees

This year school supplies will be purchased in bulk by the school to minimize the cost to families as we get better prices.  Therefore, the supplies will be ready for the students on the first day of school. The fee for school supplies is $35.00 and will be added to your account in September and can be paid through Student QuickPay. To set up an account and make the payment, please follow the instructions provided. 

You will still need to supply your child with indoor shoes (no laces please), a backpack, lunch kit and water bottle.
