Letter to Catholic Parents in New Brighton
Letter to Parents Regarding Registration for St. Isabella Waitlist (June 2020)
All Calgary Catholic elementary schools offer a half-day kindergarten program and depending on total kindergarten enrolment, we may offer a choice of morning or afternoon classes on a first-come, first-served basis. A child who turns five years old on or before December 31 is eligible to attend kindergarten in the fall of that calendar year. For example, this means to register for kindergarten in September 2020, a child must turn five years old on or before December 31, 2020. Your child’s birth certificate is required at the time of registration.
- Kindergarten Registration for the 2020-2021 School Year: As stated in the Education Act, the kindergarten entry age has changed for the 2020-2021 school year and onward; children must turn 5 years on or before December 31, 2020.
Grades 1 – 12
A child who turns six years old on or before December 31 is eligible to register for Grade 1 in that fall of that calendar year. For example, this means to register for Grade 1 in September 2020, children must turn six years old on or before December 31, 2020. The child’s birth certificate is required and one parent’s Catholic baptismal certificate is requested to be presented at the time of registration. Resident Catholic students transitioning from kindergarten to Grade 1 in the same school do not need to re-register for Grade 1. Non-resident students need to inquire with the principal of the school to determine if they will be able to register for Grade 1 based on available room and resources. Parents of students not previously registered at any grade level should call the school for an appointment to register.
Designated Boundaries for Schools
The Calgary Catholic School District has designated boundaries for all schools. CCSD uses boundaries strategically to ensure optimal student populations that support viable programming across the district. It is the expectation that students will attend their designated school. Please be aware that school attendance boundaries can and do change to accommodate factors including changing demographic information, the opening or closing of a school, to relieve overcrowding in schools, etc.
New Students to Canada
Students who are born outside of Canada register through the St. John Reception Centre. It is located at 15-12 Street NW and the phone number is 403-500-2007. Students whose first language is not English may be required to complete an English language proficiency assessment. District interpreter services for this appointment are available upon request at no cost to the family. To book an appointment to register, please call 403-500-2007.
