2019 - 2020 Kindergarten Registration
We are now accepting Kindergarten registrations for the upcoming school year. If your child will turn 5 prior to December 31, 2019, please come into the school to register your child. We will require a birth certificate and health card and will be able to make copies at the school. If you do not have a birth certificate available we ask that you bring one in as soon as you are able to. If you have any questions, please contact the school.
We will be hosting our Kindergarten Open House on Wednesday, February 13th starting at 6:30 pm. Your child will get to go into the Kindergarten Room where he/she will be cared for by our wonderful staff members while you get to have a short presentation with us across the hall and find out about the Kindergarten Program. After this, you will get to tour the school and ask any questions may have. We look forward to having you at our open house and for your child to join the Barr Colony Community!

Literacy at Our School
Literacy is an integral part of how we operate at Barr Colony School. Not only do teachers at Barr Colony work together to plan and deliver lessons targeted at each student’s instructional level, but they also used the new Saskatchewan Reads document to guide their instruction. The extensive Saskatchewan Reads document is based on the research of leading reading experts.
Our Literacy Coach is an important part of our school-based literacy team and works alongside teachers to improve instructional practices.
At Barr Colony School, we have celebrated literacy in many ways this year. Every day, students from our leadership club read with students who do not always have an opportunity to read with someone at home.
We have had a “booknic” where parents came to school with a picnic lunch and read with their children. Many families come to our Family Literacy nights for both Kindergarten as well as the whole school.
During literacy nights, families read books and work together on activities based on what they have read. Character dress up day is always a favourite with students as they get to show off their favourite characters from their favourite books.
One of the school’s favourite activities this year was when two of our Grade 6 students shared a Cree book with the rest of the classes in the school. This was an amazing opportunity for them to take some leadership and to celebrate their culture.
