Grades K-4 will take part in our annual Playday on the morning of June 26th. Grade 5 students will help run the different stations. This year’s theme: Summer!
We are still in need of parent volunteers to help out on that day. If you are interested in helping out from 8:30-12:00, and haven’t already completed our volunteer request form, please email our Vice-principal at email@example.com.

We are very proud to announce to you our first-year teachers who have made the grade as Edwin Parr Award Nominees:
Mrs. Saurette – Gr. 2
Ms. Wallace – Gr. 1
Mrs. Barg – Gr. 2
The Alberta School Boards Association present the Edwin Parr Award to a first year teacher who truly stands out.Out of all the nominees in each zone of the province (we are in Zone 5), one nominee is chosen to compete against other winners. The award for Zone 5 was given to a high school teacher at Father Lacombe. Our St. Clare teachers represented us very well at the district celebration that took place last week.
We are also proud to announce Mrs. Gallant, who was a nominee for a Excellence in Catholic Education Award. It is a district award that recognizes teachers who are passionate about Catholic education, inspire their students, and demonstrate a strong commitment to teaching excellence.
Way to go!
Friday performances by all classes gr. 1-6, in a show titled “Discovery & Science”, were a culmination of a fantastic week of theatrical preparation and creation, made possible by our artist-in-residency group called Trickster Theatre.
A giant thank you to Cari Russell and all of her fellow actors with Trickster; they worked very well with our students in creating a short skit from scratch based on science curriculum ideas. Students used their ideas to help generate scripts or storyboards to make their science lessons come to life.
Feedback from the Friday performances was positive as parents were treated to a variety of performance media, like black light and shadow, with others using unique props like soccer nets, plastic shovels, pillows, and toilet plungers to name just a few. These props helped guide the direction of the story ideas and shape the skit.
Thank you to all our parent volunteers who came out to help, because without them the week would not have been as successful as it was. Special thanks to Mrs. Sandham and Mrs. Livingstone for their leadership, and to Mr. Pshyk for videoing recording the show. After Easter break, we will make digital copies of the performances available to students and their families.
And a very special thank you to our music teacher, Ms. Bischoff, for all of her efforts she put into organizing, managing, and overseeing the project from its inception to completion.
And to the stars of the show, congratulations, students of St. Clare, you were awesome!
