Programs at Bearspaw School

As a public school, Bearspaw follows the Alberta Education Program of Studies which is available on-line at https://education.alberta.ca/teachers/program.aspx.

The parent resource, My Child’s Learning can be found at: http://www.learnalberta.ca/content/mychildslearning and will provide you with a better understanding of Alberta’s curriculum and how you can help your child. It tells you what your child is learning, how they’re assessed and what resources are available to help them be successful.

Bearspaw School provides a variety of programs and services to address the diverse learning needs of our student population. Support is offered to students who experience learning difficulties. We value the importance of parent involvement and recognize that parent support is essential to student success. We work collaboratively with personnel from Rocky View Schools’ Student Support Services to develop and implement special programs to meet the needs of our students, and we strive to provide opportunities for all students to succeed as learners.

Option classes are available to students in grade 7 & 8 whereby students choose from a variety of interest-based classes such as Foods, Construction, Robotics, Band, etc. Course selection is dependent upon space and teacher availability and may vary from year to year.  Grade 6 students may choose a band or art major.

Bearspaw School runs an Active Living Program through which each grade participates in an off-campus activity, which promotes lifelong fitness.

Athletics

Grade 6, 7 & 8 students have the opportunity to participate in inter-school athletic teams such as track and field, volleyball, basketball and badminton.

Sports are an important part of Bearspaw’s culture as we promote “Champion Effort, Attitude and Teamwork”. Bearspaw school participates in the Rocky View Schools (RVS) extra-curricular sports to the fullest extent possible as student interest and coach-volunteer availability determines.
