We are excited to share that Mme Jolyane Genest was nominated this year for an Edwin Parr award. This award honours one nominee from each board. Nominees must be a first-year K to 12 teacher who has taught in an Alberta school jurisdiction.
Edwin Parr homesteaded is in the Meanook area near Athabasca in 1920.
Prior to 1925, he began his long career in educational affairs as a member of the board with the George Lake School District. He served as chair of the board with the Athabasca School Division and was on the council of the County of Athabasca from its formation in 1959 until his death in January 1963.
Edwin Parr was president of the Alberta School Trustees’ Association (now the Alberta School Boards Association) from 1956 to 1962. “Ed Parr”, as he was known to all, instituted an Annual Teacher Award in his school system. Each year a member of the teaching staff was chosen to receive a gold watch and an appropriate certificate for long and meritorious service.
In searching for a way in which his memory might be perpetuated and to honour the profession he so dearly respected, the Alberta School Trustees’ Association established the Edwin Parr Teacher Award in 1964.
This is a huge honour and we are so proud of Mme Genest!
French Immersion Parent Survey Results
Below is a school website article regarding the 2017-18 French Immersion Parent Survey Results.
2017- 2018 EIPS Parent Survey Results Report
2017-18 EIPS Parent Survey Results Report
The results are now available for the 2017-18 EIPS Parent Survey conducted in March. Thank you to all families who took the time to share their feedback with the Division. The survey included 20 questions related to the three priorities outlined in the EIPS 2015-2018 Three-Year Education Plan:
- Priority 1: Promote growth and success for all students
- Priority 2: Enhance high quality learning and working environments
- Priority 3: Enhance public education through effective engagement, partnerships and communication
The overall Division results represent 2,918 responses from parents and guardians across EIPS. This was an increase in responses from 2,678 in the previous year.
The survey results for École Campbelltown have helped us identify the following areas of strength and opportunities for growth.
Areas of strength:
- Quality of Education
- Quality of Teaching
- My child's individual needs are meet
- My child is demonstrating growth in literacy
- My child is demonstrating growth in numeracy
- School staff care about my child
- My Child's School is Safe
Opportunities for growth:
- Community partnerships
- Fist Nations Metis and Inuit Awareness
The feedback gathered will help our school and the Division measure its progress toward meeting the priorities and goals outlined in the EIPS 2015-2018 Three-Year Education Plan and develop strategies to better serve students and the wider community moving forward.
It is very important that you let the office know (either via the website or phone message) if your child is late or away, as we need to follow up with every student who is not here.
PLEASE send emails to “Attendance” on the contact page as this will go to both secretaries. There is a link on the lefthand side of this page.
If you let the office know they can enter it into PowerSchool and the teacher will automatically know. Letting the teacher know as well is helpful, but we need to ensure the office knows in case the teacher is absent and the information is not passed on. Thank you for your help with this.
Feel free to contact the office if you have any questions.
Families are invoiced for school fees at the beginning of every school year. Fees are due within 30-days of the invoice date. The simplest, and most convenient, way to pay schools fees is using ACORN by logging into the PowerSchool Parent Portal. If circumstances exist where you are unable to pay your students fees you can apply to have fees waived by submitting an Application for a Waiver of Fees.
