Cremona School is nestled in the majestic foothills of Alberta, in the Village of Cremona. Offering programming from kindergarten to grade 12, to a population of nearly 370 students, we believe in providing individualized programming for all of our children. Having a small population allows us to get to know the students and their family’s on a personal level. When you join our school, you are joining our family.
Cremona School puts a strong emphasis on literacy, providing a daily reading block for all grades. Our high school is part of the high school redesign initiative, allowing us to provide students with individualized learning time and much more. Grades 5 through 8 are provided with enrichment time, allowing students, to not only improve their skills but explore their passions.
Cremona School offers a variety of academic courses as well as a number of extra-curricular sports programs such as golf, curling, volleyball, cross country, basketball, badminton and track and field. Option programs for high school include many options such as shop, foods, media, art, physical education, band, French and cosmetology.
Cremona School is particularly proud of our graduation rates which are consistently higher than the provincial average. Cremona School strives for the best and truly believes in our divisions motto “ where students come first”.
At Cremona School there are several children who have been indentified as having severe allergies to nuts. For some of these children, any exposure to nuts or nut products is life threatening. As a Nut Aware school, we would like to remind parents that they should not be sending nuts or nut containing products to school either in lunches or as class treats. If a student should mistakenly bring a nut-containing product in their lunch, they will not be allowed to eat it and will instead be provided with an alternative snack. We will soon be posting signs and notices to remind students and the public of our Nut Awareness program, this notice will appear again in the newsletter and a permanent banner will be added to the school’s website as an additional reminder.
We would also like to remind parents of the importance of ensuring that their children’s medical information forms are accurate and up to date. For children with severe allergies this means that we need to have a list of the substances that those children are allergic to. If you, as a parent, are unsure of whether your child’s medical form is up to date, please contact the school for confirmation.
We are committed to maintaining a safe and healthy environment for all students. If there are any questions or concerns regarding Nut Awareness, please do not hesitate to contact us at the school.
