Principal's Message

Dear Parents/Guardians,

Welcome to Prince Charles School, a wonderful place to learn, celebrate Indigenous culture and make new friends!

Our theme for 2022-2023 is Friendship. To be a good friend one needs to be Kind.

Our staff is excited to connect with families and embark on an educational journey with your child.

We value building relationships and engaging in open communication with our parents, students and staff.

Our goal is to guide students to develop the knowledge, skills and understanding so they are empowered to be successful academically and socially.  Teachers will program for “the child’s learning level” and with parent support, we are confident children will make academic gains.  Additional supports for students are available through our School Success Coach and the Division. 

We encourage parents to: 

  • Stay connected with your child’s teacher(s).  Parents can email the teacher or call the school and leave a message for the teacher to contact them.  Appointments for in-person or virtual meetings may also be scheduled.
  • Be active on SchoolZone Parents can access all information coming from the school and the Division, such as the latest updates, report cards, monthly newsletters and transportation (Where’s my Bus?) 

If you do not have your SchoolZone login information or login information for your child, contact the office to request your username and password. 

  • Follow us on Twitter and Instagram for updates, photos and videos that highlight what’s happening at PC.

 

We follow the Code of the Golden Feather.  The values of Respect, Integrity, Humility and Honesty guide all our interactions at school and within the community.  We have complete confidence that students are capable of following the Code of the Golden Feather.

For more detailed information please read the Prince Charles School Handbook.

Lastly, a gentle reminder for parents to ensure the office has up-to-date contact and emergency information.

Let's all work together!
