In September 1998, Saginaw P.S. opened in the rapidly growing Clemens Mill community in east Cambridge. Located on Saginaw Parkway close to Townline Road, our school was named for Cambridge’s sister city of Saginaw, Michigan. In 2002, six classrooms were added to accommodate the student enrolment growth in this neighbourhood.
Our students are proud to be the Saginaw ‘Stars’! Every day, the 400 students in Junior Kindergarten to Grade 6 strive to do their ‘shining best’! Our student population consists of a harmonious blend of various cultures and backgrounds from around the globe.
Our teaching and support staff is a dedicated, caring and well qualified team, focused on student achievement. We diligently provide quality instructional and co-curricular programs designed to enhance student learning in a positive and enriching environment. We bring ample enthusiasm and a wealth of expertise ranging from athletics and behaviour to technology and visual arts.
Our teachers work hard to plan and implement quality instructional programs based on the Ontario curricula. We value all subject areas and do our best to offer a balanced program, which includes meaningful and integrated experiences at all grade levels.
Current resources and a variety of off-campus excursions enhance the classroom instruction such as: The Flight Museum, Medieval Times in Ancaster and Chicopee Team Building program are highlights for Junior classes. Students at all grades venture to local sites such as the Children’s Museum, Doon Heritage Crossroads, the Farmers’ Market and the Art Gallery. Special guest authors, musicians and drama troupes are welcomed to present their talents; parents and community members regularly share their expertise and knowledge with our students.
Students in Grades One to Six use a daily Student Planner to record their goals, note due dates and homework tasks, and share school news. They are responsible for carrying the planners back and forth between home and school on a daily basis. Parents appreciate this regular communication, while our students gain organizational skills.
