Welcome to Our Website!
As a proud part of Elk Island Public Schools, Strathcona Christian Academy Elementary has been inspiring commitment to Jesus Christ and promoting excellence in our students since 1980. We believe excellence in academics, moral character, and service to others is a natural extension of a living, vibrant faith in God. We highly value our diverse student population and at SCA we acknowledge that God has gifted each child according to His purpose and plan. Our goal is to help each student achieve their highest God-given potential intellectually, spiritually, and morally to maximize their impact on the world for Christ.
Thank you for visiting SCA Elementary School!
Therefore, my dear brothers, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain. 1 Corinthians 15:58
Education is not filling a pail but the lighting of a fire. —William Butler Yeats
NEW 2014-2015 School Calendar
NEW - Parent Portal Information
Beginning September, 2013, Elk Island Public Schools will be introducing a new fee management system. The Acorn system synchronizes with all aspects of PowerSchool, our district student Information system.
All families with students registered in Elk Island Public Schools, will be able to login through the parent portal of PowerSchool to access their school fees.
Early in September, every elementary student will receive a letter with information regarding parent access to PowerSchool. The Parent Portal allows parents the capacity to create a single sign on for all students in one family who are currently enrolled in elementary, junior high and senior high in Elk Island Public Schools. The letter will contain instructions on navigating to the Parent Portal and creating an account. The required information for linking students to the account will also be printed. If you are currently registered on the Parent Portal with junior and/or senior high students, you will now be able to add the elementary student.
Once the Parent account is created, you will not need to create a new account each year. The account information will follow your student as long as they are enrolled in Elk Island Public Schools.
If you have difficulty creating a new account, an instructional video is available on the parent portal login page at https://powerschool.eips.ca/public or on the division website at http://eips.ca/powerschool.
Please note that at the elementary school level, only student attendance and student fees will be available through the Parent Portal. Ongoing assessment will continue through the eLuminate program outside of PowerSchool.
As part of this process, it is important to provide the school with a current email address. Please ensure that all your contact information is correct when correction forms come home on the first day of school.
If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to call the school.
Wheels in Motion
This year, SCA Elementary is partnering with Foundation For His Ministry (FFHM) located in the Baja Peninsula of Mexico. FFHM provides many services to the people of Mexico including an orphanage and school. Part of FFHM’s ministry is providing specialized wheelchairs for disabled children. These wheelchairs are custom made based on the physical needs of each child. Without these wheelchairs, these children would be unable to come to school and would be left at home each day. Having a wheelchair opens up many possibilities for these children, including coming to the Learning Center run by FFHM. SCA Elementary has entered into a partnership with FFHM, raising money for the building of these specialized wheelchairs. Keep your eyes and ears open for opportunities to give to the Wheels in Motion project!
