Early registration for high school students begins Aug. 21

Saskatoon Public Schools' collegiates are welcoming new high school students and families back to school with early registration.

New students in Grade 9-12 or current high school students who have not yet registered for fall classes should phone the Student Services office at the collegiate of their choice to book an appointment with counsellors beginning Wednesday, Aug. 21.

Counsellors will work with students to select required and elective classes, check course prerequisites, prepare a class schedule and provide students and families with information about the school and its programs to ensure a smooth start for the first day of classes Tuesday, Sept. 3.

Students who are new to Canada should contact the school division's Newcomer Student Centre at (306) 683-8400 for an appointment. Staff will determine a student's eligibility to study by looking at their immigration documents, assist with registration and assess the student's English language skills if necessary.

Saskatoon Public Schools' collegiates have open attendance boundaries, which means students may attend the collegiate of their choice, no matter where they reside in the city.

Our collegiates offer a variety of unique programs and learning opportunities in academics, the arts, technology and athletics. High school French immersion programs are available at Centennial, Marion M. Graham, Tommy Douglas and Walter Murray collegiates. The International Baccalaureate Programme is located at Bedford Road and Aden Bowman.

Nutana Collegiate offers Grade 10-12 classes on a quarter-year schedule that allows students to complete needed classes to graduate, upgrade their marks in a few courses, complete prerequisites for specific post-secondary programs, or meet final graduation requirements.

Royal West Campus offers a specialized program for adult students seeking to complete their high school education or upgrade their marks for entrance to post-secondary programs. 

Learn more about each school and the unique programs offered at each school by reading our Collegiate Handbook or Unique Programs Handbook.

Elementary schools hold early registration day Aug. 29; first day of classes Sept. 3

Saskatoon Public Schools is welcoming new students and families back to school with an early registration day set for Thursday, Aug. 29, 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. at all elementary schools. 

The morning allows students and families who are new to the school division, or who are transferring from another SPS school, to take a tour, ask questions and register. Families of students who were registered at their school during the previous school year do not need to attend early registration day.

Collegiates are open for early registration beginning Aug. 21 when counsellors and administrators are in the office. New students in Grade 9-12 or students who have not yet registered for fall classes should phone the school to book an appointment. The first full day of school for high school students is Tuesday, Sept. 3.

The first day for elementary school students is Tuesday, Sept. 3. The morning welcome bell will ring at the usual time for each school. Students will attend school for the morning only and will be dismissed at each school's usual noon-hour dismissal time. The morning allows schools to register new students, welcome students and families and determine enrollment and classroom assignments.

The first full day of school for students in Grade 1-8 is Wednesday, Sept. 4. Kindergarten students will have a staggered start to allow them to become comfortable with the school and their classmates. Information on the kindergarten start schedule at individual schools is available from the school office.

Offices at all of the division's elementary schools are closed for the summer but will reopen during the last week of August.

School supply lists for the 2019-20 school year are posted on each school website, usually under the About Our School menu or on the Registration Information page.

Students at the centre of school division's new strategic plan

SPS Strategic Plan.jpgAcademic excellence, character, engagement, and well-being of students are at the centre of a new strategic plan approved by trustees during the June 4 meeting of the Saskatoon Board of Education.

The plan highlights the vision of knowing, valuing, and believing in each student. It emphasizes Saskatoon Public Schools' commitment to creating learning experiences that inspire all students to reach their potential and the importance of relationships, equity and accountability.

The plan, which will guide the division's work during the next five years, was designed to be a clear, succinct vision that would resonate with students, staff, parents/caregivers, and the larger community.

Its development was informed by widespread internal and external consultation that included surveys, data analysis, and multiple opportunities to refine the plan. Feedback was gathered in a variety of ways including: parent, staff and community surveys, sessions with trustees, senior administration, and school-based administrators; student academic achievement data; and consultation with external stakeholders and community organizations.

French Immersion coming to Silverspring School starting September 2019

silverspring_news.jpgFrench Immersion enrolments have increased significantly in the past few years. To accommodate this continued demand, Saskatoon Public Schools will be opening a new kindergarten to Grade 8 French Immersion program at Silverspring School beginning in September 2019, alongside the school’s established English program. 

The French Immersion program at Silverspring will serve the following neighbourhoods: Aspen Ridge, Evergreen, Silverspring and Willowgrove. Students from these neighbourhoods only will receive busing to Silverspring School, unless they live within walking distance of the school.

Enrolment at École Forest Grove School has grown bigger than the facility can continue to support. The opening of the new program at Silverspring School will allow École Forest Grove School to provide comfortable and supportive learning spaces for its students. It also provides appropriate access to French Immersion programming for the growing neighbourhoods in northeast Saskatoon. 

École Forest Grove School will continue to serve students from Arbor Creek, Brighton, Erindale, Forest Grove, Sutherland and University Heights.
