Principal's Message

Welcome to Sawmill Creek Elementary School!  We are a vibrant school community with over 570 students and staff members from a diverse range of cultural backgrounds. Sawmill Creek is a dual-track school offering learning opportunities for all students in both the Regular English and Early French Immersion Programs running from grades 1 to 8 following a 50/50 French/English Kindergarten experience. We also host junior and intermediate English Language Development programs as well as offer English as a Second Language instruction, fully integrated into our regular classroom programs. Sawmill Creek is a student-centred school where we focus on academic excellence and outstanding citizenship. We promote learning not only through rigorous classroom programs, but also by offering enriched extra-curricular activities.  Children at our school can participate in a variety of clubs (e.g., Hackergals, Man Tea, Run Club, Chess Club, Arts Club, Concert Band, Choir) and sports programs at the intramural and interschool levels (e.g., x-country running, basketball, soccer, volleyball, triple ball, track & field, bordenball). Our Sawmill Creek Cyclones have a rich history of team play where enthusiastic coaches focus on fun, fitness, teamwork, and sport fundamentals.

There are lots of opportunities for families to be involved in their children's education at Sawmill Creek, ranging from volunteering in a classroom to assisting with coaching to serving on our active School Council. Special events at Sawmill Creek are constantly happening. Check out our family dances, the annual barbecue, arts night, family math night, the seasonal concert, dancemania, the school talent show, Welcome to Kindergarten, movie night, and, this year, we're proud to present the musical, "Alice in Wonderland".

Built in 1996, Sawmill Creek's facilities allow students to learn in bright, spacious classrooms with air-conditioning when needed. Our eco-friendly school is equipped with roof-top solar panels and a large back-up generator that allows the learning to continue in the event of a power outage. Sawmill Creek's school day runs from 8:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., and we offer an Extended Day Program for families requiring child care before and/or after school.  We provide a nutritious snack program for students who need a healthy snack as a "top up" when they're hungry.  For a fee, we also provide a daily milk program, weekly pizza days, weekly popcorn days, and special hot lunch days.

Sawmill Creek is a wonderful place for children to learn and grow. If you have further questions about what our school can offer your child, please feel free to contact us at 613 521-5922. I'd be happy to arrange for a personal tour of our school to showcase the many excellent learning opportunities and personal development experiences our dedicated team of educators has to offer.


Sincerely,

Tim Pearson
Proud Principal of Sawmill Creek
