Sheldon-Williams Collegiate School Community Council (SCC)
The Sheldon-Williams School Community Council welcomes staff, students and families back for another school year. We extend a warm welcome to families and staff who are new to our school.  In 2016-2017 the Sheldon-Williams School Community Council will continue to promote mutual understanding between the school and the community. This council will share responsibility for the learning success and well-being of all Sheldon-Williams students. The SCC will work on school planning and school improvements for the upcoming year. The School Community Council consists of the school principal and vice principal, a teacher(s), students and members of the Student Leadership Council, parents/guardians and/or community members. The SCC meets once a month for about one hour. Please consider joining the SCC.

SWAP:  Sheldon-Williams Advisory Program

Students attending Sheldon-Williams are placed into the SWAP program. Students from grades nine to twelve will meet with their SWAP teacher throughout the year. We also encourage regular contact between parents and the SWAP teacher. This allows both the student and the parents to build a relationship with their advisory teacher.

PowerSchool - Parent Portal

Parent Portal is a convenient and efficient internet based way for parents to monitor their student’s progress on a daily or weekly bases.  All parents can have access to their child(ren)’s attendance and marks by setting up a Parent Portal account.


Please contact your child’s SWAP teacher or the office at (306) 523-3550 to learn how to set up your account.

Setting up your account in the first week or two of school will help you monitor your son or daughter’s progress and assist in a successful start to the school year.


Extra-Curricular and Co-Curricular Activities

Opportunities for students to learn and practice new skills take place both inside and outside of the classroom. A very important part of our school program includes extra-and co-curricular activities available to students. Students are encouraged to become involved, learn new skills and make new friends. Emphasis is placed on personal growth, team or group participation and sportsmanship. Student leadership and decision-making are promoted through all extra-curricular activities.


Attendance is a prerequisite for academic achievement. We expect students to make a commitment to be responsible and accountable regarding their attendance. We follow a policy of continuous evaluation, which requires students to participate in classroom activities each day. We need the support of parents/guardians regarding attendance to help students achieve success. Please be sure to telephone the school at (306) 523-3550 if your child is absent.

One of the most important things a student can do is to establish strong bonds with his/her teacher. Regular attendance and accountability by students are strong indicators of effort and willingness to cooperate. We appreciate your support of our school programs. Do not hesitate to call or visit at any time.



If you require a timetable change please contact the office at (306) 523-3550 to schedule an appointment. Appointments can be booked starting the week of August 22, 2016.

School Community Council


Thank you Spartan parents and alumni donors!


After our recent appeal for help to relieve our funding shortfall, the SCC is happy to thank some Spartan parents who paid their voluntary fees at the school’s February Open House. Other good news: three community-minded Spartan supporters made significant financial donations to the SCC in March!


Many thanks to Tom and Effie Liagridonis, new Spartan parents, and to Kevin Knight and Kyle Knight of Knight Automotive and Western Auto Group, both proud Spartan alumni.


Your voluntary $10 fees and these community donations help the SCC to support Sheldon Williams Collegiate community events and the school’s Learning Improvement Plan. We use our funds for teacher requests for additional learning materials and programming, specific equipment or extras for instruction, and social events that are part of Sheldon’s tradition, such as open houses, cap and gown grad celebrations and staff appreciation.


Your voluntary $10 fee supports our school
