Black Gold Regional Division No. 18
Calmar Elementary School


Welcome to Calmar Elementary School

2017 – 2018 New Student Registration will be Processed Online

All new families will be asked to register their child online via InfoSnap/PowerSchool Registration. 
A paper copy of the registration form will not be available.

What is InfoSnap/PowerSchool?

InfoSnap/PowerSchool is our new online enrolment system. InfoSnap will replace our annual paper registration packets, saving valuable time. The new system is a secure process that will allow the Division to verify all student information for every child prior to the start of the new school year.

Don’t Own a Computer?

  • All schools will have a kiosk/chromebook available for parents that do not have access to a computer or the internet.
  • The InfoSnap/PowerSchool program is also mobile friendly, meaning that you can use your smartphone to register!

Don’t Own a Scanner?

Bring your supporting documents into the school in order to ensure your registration is complete. Alternatively, there are free Apps that will allow you to scan your documents on the go from your mobile phone or tablet and export them as JPEG or multipage PDF files. Check a few of these out:
