Welcome to our School with colors of the pride flag in the background

The start of a new school year marks a fresh beginning, a chance to create a positive classroom environment, and an opportunity to establish strong teacher-student connections. 


I’m delighted to welcome everyone back to SACS. It is wonderful to see all of your faces again. I hope we can reignite the fun times in our classrooms.


At SACS, we strive to foster student safety, well-being, while providing a variety of learning opportunities in an inclusive community atmosphere. We wish to thank Building Operator, Bill Hadley, Custodial staff, Courtney Pelrine and Derek Neary for the incredible work with preparation, planning, and placing our building in outstanding condition for our school community.


SACS is delighted to welcome a few new faces to our team. On Thursday, September 14, 2023 we are hosting a ‘Meet the Teacher’ evening from 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.


We will continue with soft start again this year from 8:30 a.m. until 9 a.m. During this time students are welcomed into the classroom and given an opportunity to settle in and prepare for a day of learning. They can engage in individual or group preferred activities as well as stop by the foods program for a nutritious snack.


In a continued effort to prepare students for a successful day at school, the foods program will continue this school year. This program consists of a daily breakfast along with daily snacks stored in two separate “kids fridges” for students to access at any time during the day.


We are very fortunate to have an active and engaged Home and School group. They will provide three hot lunches per week again this year for a cost of two dollars per meal. Kindness Closet - this school year our leadership team worked towards the creation of a Kindness Closet. This is a space to house clothing, footwear, toiletries, and hygiene products. It’s intended to be a judgment free and barrier free space for students to access if they require/want any of the above items or if they would like to enhance their wardrobe with some gently used clothing. As part of well-being, we recognized the importance of students feeling good about themselves and building confidence. This is also an effort to strengthen the sense of community within our school, and to teach and demonstrate to students how to care for each other.


We wish all families a safe, and happy return to school.  As a staff, we are very excited to see students’ happy smiling faces as we work together to provide the best learning opportunities possible for our students.
