Great Things are Happening at Ecole Parkdale School

Ecole Parkdale School students are engaged and learning in many different ways.

  • Grade 3 and 4 Courtyard Beautification project - Our grade 3 and 4 classes have been working to design an outdoor classroom in our courtyard area. This project is cross-curricular and is meeting outcomes in science, math and language arts. Students have submitted design proposals, developed a budget for supplies and considered various plant characteristics in their planning. The labor will be getting underway shortly and we look forward to seeing the space change into a usable learning environment.
  • Aboriginal Day performances - With Aboriginal Day approaching, several students from grades one to six have joined together to create a uniques dance experience that blends Aboriginal culture with pop culture. Our dedicated dancers have been hard at work under the direction of Miss Klinger and Miss Reti to prepare for their performance. There will be a celebration at the school which will include a give-away. Additionally, our Powwow drum group will be taking their skills on the road to perform at the Ermineskin Year-End Powwow on June 19.
  • Grade 1 Beautification project - While studying their science unit, Needs of Plants and Animals, Miss Read’s grade 1 class expressed a concern that our school does not have enough plant life. They have taken it upon themselves to find ways to incorporate plants in our school. Their project has covered outcomes in science, language arts and math. Watch for their garden to take shape around the sign in front of the school!
  • Learning Commons - We are in the process of transforming our library into a Learning Commons! This will involve the library being reconfigured into space that will be utilized for project work and flexible learning space. This will be a work in progress but we are excited about the upcoming Phase One changes to be revealed in the new school year!

Learning takes many forms at Ecole Parkdale school. When students engage in something that piques their interest, learning is absorbed and applied in meaningful ways in and out of school.
