Stony Creek Parent Partnership

School Delivery

The school is set up with multi-graded classrooms, usually consisting of Grades 1, 3, 5, then 2, 4, 6 and 7, 8, 9, though this can change depending upon student distribution over the grades. Teachers plan classroom activities that parents are required to attend for a half day each month.

Grades 1-6

Tuesdays and Thursdays are spent at school and focused on Science, Social Studies and options courses. Literacy and numeracy concepts are included in these courses, which use a cross-curricular approach to support home-based learning in these areas. Portions of the Physical Education curriculum are also addressed at the school throughout the year. 

Grades 7-9

Tuesdays, Thursdays and alternate Mondays are spent at school and focused on Science, Social Studies, Math and options courses. Literacy and numeracy concepts are included in these courses, which use a cross-curricular approach to support home-based learning in these areas. Portions of the Physical Education curriculum are also addressed at the school throughout the year.

Parent/Community Program Delivery

The home component of the Stony Creek program is administered by parents or community designates in consultation with teachers, who conduct home or community site visits, collaborating with parents to create programs that meet the learning outcomes of the Alberta curriculum.

Parents have the flexibility to choose resources which they feel meet the needs of their children. Home visits from teachers occur monthly, and may be supplemented by workshops at CFL to assist parents with skills and strategies to support their home instruction.

Parents are required to attend the Annual General Meeting at the start of each school year. Each family is required to take on a volunteering role to enrich the program for students in the classroom. In addition to the required classroom volunteering, other opportunities include (but are not limited to):

  • Parent Advisory Committee
  • Hot Lunch Program
  • Class Project/Event Assistance
  • Field Trip supervision
