Sparling Newsletter


Dear Families,

October has arrived and the weather has been fantastic! The students have been enjoying cross country running, trips to the parks around the area, and the changing colors of fall. We are also very proud of all our Sparling golfers and runners that have participated in events these past weeks. Well done, Sparling.

Please check out the Hot Meals Sparling will be providing in the coming weeks, dates are located in this newsletter! These are all made possible through nutrition funding received by the school.

There is important information below with regards to logging into Powerschool and completing the Student Verfication Form. We need to complete these ASAP because they include the permission forms needed to access computers at school.

Thank you!

Andrea Gutmann & Jon Skinner

Completing Verification Forms

Each year we are required to provide Alberta Education with a signed and dated "Student Verification Form" for each of our students. This year we have an electronic verification form for this process. It will also include our BRSD FOIP and Technology Use form. To access and complete this form, you will need to:

1. Log into the parent portal via your web browser PowerSchool Portal (Google Chrome for example).

2. Click on the SchoolEngage icon. You will be redirected to the SchoolEngage site where you can select your child's name.

3. Click on the 2022-2023 Student Verification Form and then on the blue icon in the first column to review the information.

4. Once you have completed your verification, click on the green submit button.

This is incredibly important and we really appreciate your help in getting this completed quickly.
