Principal's Message

Dear Sabre families,

Counsellors and administration will be available to assist students and staff in dealing with their grief, as needed, in the days to come. As a community, it is important to support one another and look out for those that may be struggling.

Orange Shirt Day

This year, Orange Shirt Day is on Wednesday September 30. We show our support by wearing orange. If your child does not have orange to wear, that’s ok! Students will be provided with an “Every Child Matters” sticker day of.

Some of you may not know many details about Orange Shirt Day. Please see the following to learn more about the day and why we wear orange:

This year, we at Salisbury want to give back by supporting “Shannen’s Dream”. Students will be invited to make a "pencil gram" Thursday and Friday at lunch this week to show their fellow Sabres "why you matter"; for each pencil gram that is made, we will donate $0.25 to Shannen's Dream. As we are currently not able to accept cash donations, we will be donating on behalf of the students and staff.

If you would like to show your support that “School is a time for dreams, every kid deserves this” – Shannen Koostachin, please see the following link for more information and to donate online:

If you have other questions, please feel free to reach out to our First Nations Métis Inuit teacher lead, Jenna Willman by emailing her at

Success Team Resource of the Week

Exciting times for grade 12 students! Post-secondary applications open October 1. The Edmonton area is home to many reputable post-secondary institutions with an abundance of programs. These schools are providing virtual advising and open houses that students can access in the weeks & months ahead. Links to all the local institutions are accessible through our Salisbury website. Students can also drop by Guidance to pick up post-secondary “viewbooks” or to schedule an appointment to discuss their future aspirations.
