Welcome

Welcome to Prince Charles School!

We look forward to building a warm, nurturing and respectful relationship between home and school. We invite you to be an active part of our school community.  It is only as a team working together that we can accomplish all that we dream for our children.

The Code of the Golden Feather is the foundation of our community.  We practice Respect, Humility, Honesty and Integrity each and every day in all that we say and do. We are also a Leader In Me School and support all of our students to be leaders.  Staff strive to support each child to find and develop his or her strengths to be positive change agents in their school, their family, and their community.

 

Principal's Message

Welcome to Prince Charles School!  

Our theme for 2021-2022 is: Learning and Being Kind Together

We believe that relationships and open communication between parents, students, and staff are foundational to a great year. 

We encourage parents to read Edmonton Public’s 2021-22 Back to School Plan so they are informed of the protocols and procedures to ensure the health and safety of all students and staff. 

 Staff will work to ensure that students develop the knowledge, skills, and understanding to be successful academically and socially.  The impact of the pandemic created challenges and some parents may be concerned about “learning loss”.  Teachers will program for “the learning level the child is at” and with parent support, we are confident children will make academic gains.  Supports for student mental health will also be available through our School Success Coach and the Division.

Families are strongly encouraged 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, 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. 

 

The Code of the Golden Feather incorporates Indigenous teachings that guide our work and way of living.  We hope that these values are internalized and practiced even while we are away from school.  We expect students, parents, and staff to treat others with Respect, act with Integrity, Humility and Honesty. We strongly believe our students are capable of following the Code of the Golden Feather.

Our expectations for student conduct are directly linked to the Code of the Golden Feather.  Students who strive to “be kind” will be positive role models for their peers.  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.

Sincerely,

Judy Toews

Principal
