School Council Meeting, January 14
Please join us at 6:00 p.m. as information will be shared about our current fee structure, posing specific questions about priorities, and asking you to provide your feedback as we plan for the 2020-21 school year. While many of these activities and services enhance students’ educational experience, we want to ensure these fees are affordable for families.
Specifically, we will be asking for input on the following elementary fees:
- Noon hour supervision
- Field trips and associated fees
- Extracurricular activities
- Non-curricular goods and services (for example, yearbooks)
See you on Tuesday!
Thank you Fortis Alberta!

Cold Weather Drop Off
When it is extremely cold outside, instead of waiting outside until the usual 8:32 a.m., students are welcome to come into the boot rooms after 8:25 a.m. once the supervisors are on duty.
