Don't Miss Out on School Messages


Parents/guardians: Due to Canada’s Anti-Spam Legislation (CASL), if you want to keep receiving electronic messages from our school on commercial topics such as student fees and field trip costs, you need to subscribe online.

In addition, if you want to receive any text messages from our school, you need to opt-in by texting the word YES to the six-digit number 724665.


Volunteers Wanted

We are always looking for volunteers. Parents as volunteers are a great asset to the learning environment. Volunteers can support the school in a variety of ways: field trips, reading with students, health week, activity day etc. Without volunteers, many activities cannot take place. We are required to meet specific student: volunteer ratios for all field trips.

Any parent planning to volunteer in the school must have passed a Volunteer Security Clearance. These clearances can take several weeks to be processed by Calgary City Police, so please come into the school early with 2 pieces of government issued ID and fill out the paperwork. The service is free and the clearance lasts five years.

The completion of a Annual Volunteer Registration Form is also required for each school year.

Please come to the school office to start the volunteer process.
