We are fast approaching the annual Heritage Day program to be held on Thursday, October 4, 2018. Festivities, including refreshments, will begin at 1:00 pm in the school gymnasium with class tours and teacher presentations to follow.
Heritage Day was created as a way for students to connect with grandparents and those who have been significant, mature influences in their lives. We hope that you will invite those special people - grandparents, aunts, uncles or special family friends - to come and see what Saskatoon Christian School is doing in the lives of the students.
In the past, we have offered the Birthday Club as a way to support the purchase of books but this is no longer necessary. Those attending Heritage Day can still support the school with donations toward the purchase of additional basketball hoops for the middle years’ students to use on the outdoor basketball court. Donation envelopes will be available for those guests who feel led to support SCS in this way.
In the past, this has been a very popular afternoon with many guests in attendance so we do ask that parents refrain from attending.

From September 11 to October 4, students in grades four and eight and ten in Saskatoon Public Schools will participate in a division-wide assessment called the Canadian Achievement Test (CAT). The CAT provides teachers with useful information about student performance in the areas of Reading and Mathematics. These results help teachers in planning instruction to address class and individual student needs. The tests require approximately 3 hours to complete in a group setting and will be administered over several testing sessions.
In addition to the CAT/4 testing, grade four and eight students also complete another assessment from the Canadian Test Centre called Insight. Insight measures seven different aptitudes or abilities. Results from this test will assist teachers to understand student developmental strengths and needs better as they plan effective instructional programs. Insight requires approximately 90 minutes to administer in a group setting using a DVD and data projector. If you have any questions or comments about this assessment program, please contact your classroom teacher.

SCS is pleased to partner with the Boys & Girls Clubs of Saskatoon (“BGCS”) to host our After School Program (“the Program”). All SCS students are welcome to participate but the program is intended for students enrolled in Kindergarten to Grade 6. The Program will run through the school year, commencing September 5. Afternoon sessions end at 6 p.m.
SCS offers space free of charge but the Program is administered entirely by BGCS so all enquiries related to the Program should be directed to Lindsay Roy (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Although Saskatchewan does not maintain a standard of care for before and after school programs, the BGCS After School Program is operated according to the HIGH FIVE® standard of quality for children’s recreation and sport and, as such, adheres to 5 principles of healthy child development – a caring adult, friends, participation, play, and mastery. Snacks, if necessary, are the responsibility of each parent but must be “nut free”.
To participate, your family must complete the After School Program Registration Form and pay the annual registration fee ($40, if paid by August 15; $60, if paid after August 15). The After School Program is provided on a fee-for-service basis. Click here to view the 2018-19 rates. You will be billed after each month by email and payment is only accepted by pre-authorized direct debit or pre-authorized credit card.
PLEASE NOTE: In order to ensure the success of the Program and the safety of our students, any elementary students found in the school 15 minutes after the last bell at the end of the school day will be considered as participating in the After School Program and parents will be invoiced accordingly.
Now that you're here, please update your password for your "parent" and/or "staff" account.
