Graduation season is starting soon in Springbank and we congratulate our youth board member, Jordan Inverarity, not only graduating from SCHS, but this year’s valedictorian! Best wishes, Jordan, and congratulations to all graduates in our community! SCHS graduation festivities will be June 2 at Winsport.

The Springbank Community Association (SCA) is proud to be a positive community builder by fundraising and volunteering for the betterment of Springbank schools and community groups. One of our areas of focus over the past several years has been advocating for the replacement of the old Springbank hall with a useful and well-planned community facility.  While this project is moving through Rocky View County, we do not believe that RVC has conducted meaningful engagement on the draft facility with RVC residents.  Additionally, the community centre project is one of three important recreation initiatives underway at the County that impact Springbank, including:    

  1. SR1 Funds: RVC received $10,000,000 from the Government of Alberta for the Springbank Off-Stream Reservoir that will be used to fund recreation and cultural amenities.

  2. Land Acquisition: RVC purchased land adjacent to the Springbank Park For All Seasons (SPFAS) for recreation and community amenities.

  3. Community Centre: Rocky View County released a report with a vision for the community centre. Read the report here!  Phase 1 has been approved to move forward, with an update on the cost of servicing heading to RVC Council in September.
Your feedback will help the SCA board to prioritize our activities and ensure that our positions on these items reflect resident views.

Discovery Corner Preschool  

Discovery Corner Preschool has been having much fun outside doing so many fun and messy crafts while working on fine motor skills. They have been talking about feelings and emotions and they enjoyed the book The Color Monster by Ana Llenas. The kindergarten and pre-kindergarten classes made their own monsters and then took them outside to splatter paint using colours they were feeling. Splatter painting was a blast!


Springbank High School
March at SCHS is a busy time for all. Students are working hard in their last two months of school and are looking forward to the warmer days ahead. Graduation is quickly approaching for grade 12’s in three short weeks! The grad committee, Ms. Kyle, and Ms. OP are working hard to select speakers for the evening and organize the schedule. Summer sports are entering their competitive season, between rugby, soccer, and track all student athletes participating in those are working hard. 
Springbank High fine arts students are also working hard to set up Create @ SCHS. This is an evening to showcase the fine art skills and creativity of students. This is occurring on March 25 from 6:00pm-8:00pm.
Good luck to all students in these final few months of school before summer!
