Welcome to Sifton School! The staff and I extend a warm welcome to all students and their families!
Sifton School is a special place to learn and grow! We serve approximately 300 students in programs such as Pre-Kindergarten, Full-Day Kindergarten, Regular grades 1-6, and the District centre Behaviour and Learning Assistance Program. Sifton School is an energetic, inclusive, safe and caring school!
At Sifton, one of our greatest gifts is our diverse student population. Our students represent more than 30 cultural and language backgrounds. We celebrate our students’ unique experiences and offer numerous English Language Learner (ELL) supports in our classrooms. Our daily work is grounded in the important literacy skills of speaking, listening, reading, and writing, as well as numeracy understanding. We offer forms of literacy and numeracy intervention for students who require additional support.
We are a proud APPLE school where we promote and practice healthy habits around nutrition, physical activity and mental health. Each month, our school learns about different health concepts and participates in fun activities to reinforce healthy habits! In January 2020, with the generous sponsorship of Alberta Education’s School Nutrition Program and e4c, Sifton started offering daily Morning Meals and classroom fruit bowls. Our school is gratefully partnered with many community organizations who support our students in all areas of health and learning!
At Sifton School, we value our team work with our families and community. Let’s work together to help our students achieve and be the best that they can be!
Yours in partnership,
