ECS is offered two full days and every second Friday. Children must be age 5 by February 28th in order to attend ECS.
We have regular homeroom classes from grades 1-6.
This program offers an alternative language arts curriculum to students who experience difficulty with reading and writing skills.
This is a program that offers small group instruction in the area of language arts several blocks per week. Students from grades 1 – 6 may attend by teacher request.
Classes come twice each week for music with our music teacher. The focus is on rhythm, singing and dance & movement. The Grade 4 – 6 students further their music instruction by learning to play the recorder.
Our school guidance counsellor offers support to individuals or small groups of students. As well, character education themes are expanded upon during classroom visits.
Students assemble together two to three mornings per week. The themes of assemblies include: health, literacy, math or character education traits such as responsibility, empathy, manners, and good behavior.
The grade 6 classes take part in the Drug Abuse Resistance Education which is run by the RCMP. It is a six week program with a graduation ceremony at the end.
The grade 6 students share the responsibility of being crossing guards before school, at recess, and after school. Two students are asked to attend a camp in the summer to become the captains. As well, an AMA representative comes to the school to in-service all of the students in grade 6.
Students may purchase milk coupons @16 coupons for $12.00. Each morning students hand in a coupon indicating white or chocolate milk and Grade 6 students deliver the milk to classrooms at lunch. Prizes are awarded each month depending on milk consumption.
Instead of afternoon recess, students participate in various activities for 15 min each day with their class. The activities are geared towards developing an active lifestyle.
As part of our P.E. curriculum, students from grades 4 – 6 are invited to go skiing at Rabbit Hill in January and in March. This program includes lessons for skiing or snow boarding.
As part of our Physical Education Program, students in grades 1-5 have the opportunity to participate in swimming three times each year. This program is generously funded by our Parent Teacher Association. Our sincere thanks to the PTA for their continued support of this program.
