At Sweet Grass School we believe that learning doesn't stop at the classroom door. We encourage our students to get involved in a variety of extra-curricular activities that promote the development of skills beyond the classroom.
Choir/Orff/Hand bell and Chimes Club
Students in grade 1-6 have the opportunity to join various music clubs throughout the year. These groups have the opportunity to share their passion and talent for music at assemblies, concerts and performances around the district. They meet regularly during lunch and recess breaks.
Home Reading Program
At Sweet Grass School, we believe that in order to be successful learners, students must be successful readers. To help students develop their reading skills, we operate a home reading program. Students are asked to read for a certain amount of time each night depending on their grade level. They then receive prizes and recognition at school assemblies for reaching targets throughout the year.
Our AMA Safety Patrol helps to keep children safe outside while crossing the street. Park monitors help to keep students safe on the playground by reminding them of safety rules. Grade six Office Helpers help answer phones in the office during recess and lunch. Students also take an active role in leading our assemblies.
Field Trips and Visitors to our School
Curriculum enrichment is provided throughout the year in the form of field trips and visitors to our school. Field trips are arranged by individual classroom teachers and are communicated to parents throughout the year. The Parent Council supports these valuable experiences by providing funds to ensure that all students are able to take part in these beneficial learning activities.
Sweet Grass Spirit Assemblies
During our monthly assemblies, students receive recognition for their positive actions and achievements around the school. Students receive Milk and Cookies awards with the principal, as well as Home Reading awards. Students often lead aspects of these assemblies and take an active role by performing songs or plays as part of our Character Education program.
There are also many Theme days held throughout the year that give students the opportunity to have fun in a productive learning environment.
