During the school year, fees will be requested by Sherwood Park School and Sherwood Park PAC for various activities that you may want your child(ren) to participate in. Please read the consent documents for these activities carefully, to determine who the payment should be made to and the method by which the payment can be made.  

Earlier this year, PAC Executive showed interest in moving towards bulk ordering of school supplies Kindergarten to Grade Seven. This is being done in order to:

  1. Provide basic supplies of consistent quality and quantity.
  2. Allow teachers to individualize their classroom supply lists.
  3. Pass on the savings to you from School Tools online website.
  4. Save you time and effort from ordering.
  5. Benefit families as prices may drop in subsequent years once classes build up a stock of basic supplies.

For the 2019-2020 school year, we will be piloting bulk order school supplies for Kindergarten to Grade Seven students. We would like to stress that we are trying to keep the costs as low as possible, lessen your shopping time, eliminate individual name labeling, be more environmentally friendly with less waste, and keep quality consistent. Parents can opt out and purchase their own supplies from the school supply lists that will be uploaded to the school website in September 2019.

The costs for bulk ordering will be as follows:

  • Kindergarten = $45
  • Primary Classes (Grades 1 to 3) = $75
  • Intermediate  Classes (Grades 4 to 7) = $65
If you have any questions please contact your child’s classroom teacher or the school office.

2019-2020 PROPOSED SCHOOL FEES

In accordance with the School Act and with the School Board Fees Ministerial Order, we would like to advise all Sherwood Park families of the possible school fees that could be charged for the 2019-2020 school year. A fee may be charged to recover some or all of the costs related to enriched or additional learning opportunities. In all cases, fees are kept to a minimum. The Board may charge a fee at cost for: transportation, entrance fees, and equipment rental associated with field trips or special events.

Examples of fees levied in the past are:

 - special projects to take home/give as gift

- field trips

- special events held at the school

- extra-curricular activities

 

As per Policy 706: School Fees found at http://www.sd44.ca/Board/PoliciesProcedures/Series700/Policy706/Pages/default.aspx, it is the school principal, in consultation with staff, School Parent Advisory Council, and school community who is responsible for establishing fee amounts for his/her school. All school fee amounts are set at cost-recovery.

 

Please review the table below for the proposed School Fees for the 2019-2020 School Year.

*This is a "Kindergarten Consumable Supplies Fee." A district-wide recommended amount for the K Fees is developed in consultation with K teachers and is based upon consistent curricular activities across all K classes. K parents can also use the Kindergarten Supply List (which is uploaded to the school website) and purchase items themselves.

SHERWOOD PARK SCHOOL PAYMENTS

In the past, parents could only pay for school fees via cash and cheques. Now there is also the ability to pay for more and more school field trips and activities by direct bank payment or credit card, through the KEVGroup School Cash website. Only one account is needed for the entire family, regardless of which North Vancouver School District school your children attend. You can even pay for multiple items at the same time.

The advantage for families is that students will not have to carry money to school and parents will be able to see at a glance the items they have paid for, as well as be able to pint a receipt for any payment.

You will be notified with each field trip/activity if the online payment option is available.
