Alberta Program of Studies
All schools in Alberta are required to follow the program of studies approved by Alberta Education. See the links below for more information:
Curriculum Handbooks For Parents - Information for parents on subjects, programs and courses available in Alberta at each grade level.
Curriculum Summaries - A 2 page document including a web that displays the main elements of the curriculum at each grade.
Curriculum Express - A short description for parents who are learning English.
Provincial Achievement Exams
Parent Guides for the provincial achievement tests to be written in May/June 2011 can be found at http://www.education.alberta.ca/parents/resources/exams.aspx
These Parent Guides give details on the achievement tests and the curriculum details for each subject area:
The website also provides a 10 minute streaming video resource to explain to parents why these tests are needed.
Please be aware that a number of students in our school have life-threatening allergies, most commonly to nuts. Please avoid packing nuts and nut products in your child's lunch.
We appreciate your help in ensuring that your children attend school punctually and with minimal absences. Last year we experienced a high number of late students daily, resulting in a great deal of disruption to their learning, their peers and teachers, as well as extra work for office staff.
When you know that your child will be absent, please assist our office staff by leaving a message with the student's name, homeroom and the reason for absence on the absence line at 403-777-7995 Ext 1.

Note to Parents:
Students will be dismissed at 12:00 on all Fridays. Friday afternoons will be used by staff for staff meetings, team meetings, group planning and professional development.
Please ensure that students do not arrive at school prior to 7:45 and that they come home promptly after school unless they are participating in extra curricular opportunities. This is because before and after school supervision is not provided for students except in exceptional circumstances. Please do not drop off students in the staff parking lot.
Student Drop Off/Pick Up
Please do not use the parking lot to drop off or pick up your children. There are signs in the lot to this effect and police may issue a ticket for failing to obey them. The volume of cars in the parking lot has caused a number of dangerous "near misses" for our students, and has caused problems for our school busses as they enter and leave the lot.
There is ample street parking along Hidden Valley Dr. and Hidden Ridge Cl. on the north and east sides of the school.
Bus maps may are subject to change. Please inquire at the office for updated maps and information.
