Principal's Message

Sifton School is a special place to learn and grow! We serve approximately 280 students in programs such as Full-Day Kindergarten, Regular grades 1-6, Connections, and Interactions.  Connections is a Division Centre program that supports students with academics and prosocial behaviours.  Interactions is a Division Division centre that supports students who are on the autism spectrum.   Our School Vision Statement guides our work with students:

At Sifton School, success will be nurtured through building positive relationships, celebrating family diversity, and providing authentic and engaging learning opportunities for every student. 

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 our Division’s Equity Achievement Project school where we focus on five pillars of student growth:  strong Literacy and Numeracy approaches, Early Learning, After School Programming, School Nutrition, and Mental Health. 

Our school uses evidence-based reading screeners with grades 1-6.  The information we gather about our students allows our teaching staff to deliver high-leverage group instruction and more targeted individual supports.  We are a proud APPLE school where we promote and practice healthy habits around nutrition, physical activity and mental health so students can grow up strong.  

Sifton is grateful for numerous community partners who provide support.  Amongst those, E4C provides our students with a daily Morning Meal as breakfast starts the day off well!  Serv-All Mechanical is also a generous sponsor of our Food For Thought lunch program, which provides healthy lunches for students.

At Sifton School, we value team work with our families and community and celebrate the many experiences, interests, and skills that our students bring to our classrooms. Parents, guardians, and caregivers are integral to student success and we welcome all family members as part of the learning team; thank you for all that you do!


Yours in partnership,

Shannon Mah
