Student Supplies

Please note: we will be continuing with our school supplies being supplied by the school. We are charging a once per year fee for each child and we will supply what the students will need. The only things students need to bring from home are a backpack, gym strip, inside shoes and a lunch kit. We always appreciate a box of kleenex donated to the school from each family to help us thru cold season.

Fees this year are: Primary $30 and Intermediates $35. Please make cheques out to Parkland Elementary and try to have them in to us by the end of September. Thanks!  Lunch cards are $30 for 30 spots.

School Mission:

At Parkland Elementary School, our core business is to help each child set goals that will prepare him/her for a successful future as a lifelong learner though: consistent assessment, visibly stated learning intentions, fierce conversations and team reflection. Many factors contribute to student learning, but research shows that the most direct factor impacting student learning is effective teaching. (Stonge, 2010; Marzano, 2003, 2010; Hattie, 2003; Barber and Mourshed, 2007; Leithwood, 2009, etc.)

At Parkland Elementary School, we will cause learning and serve each learner.

 School Vision:

Our school will be a place where…Our learning will be creative, thoughtful and engaged. All individuals will maximize their potential.

School Profile:

Parkland is a rural school with 52 students in three multi-grade classes from Kindergarten to Grade 7.  We are located 25 km out on the Alaska Highway and then 4 km down Parkland Road.

It is a community school that serves five rural areas and all our students are bussed.  One of the greatest strengths of this school is the strong sense of community and the involvement of parents.  Our 2 day a week Strong Start program is a key component of the school. Many kindergarten students come well prepared for school.  Our staff is experienced and committed to using best practice and make every effort to know all of the students.  They also work hard at providing programs and activities to meet the needs of all students academically, emotionally and socially. In 2010 we added a wonderful outdoor classroom to our school to further enrich student learning.

Our students are friendly, strive to meet high expectations and often rise to the occasion as a group.  Our peer leadership program continues to thrive as our intermediate students take on leadership roles within the school helping as reading buddies, running morning announcements and helping with the hot lunch program. As well, our older students provide support during recess and lunch to our primary students, along with coordinating assemblies and other special presentations.

 Parent Involvement:

At our school, we have a good number of parents who volunteer their time with class activities. Our parents not only run our weekly hot lunch program, they help to coordinate special events and supervise sports events and field trips.

We have good attendance at our open house, teacher interviews and performances. Our Parent Advisory Council meets monthly.  We have a dedicated PAC, which is well supported by the rest of our parents when specific jobs and activities are planned. Parkland parents are committed to making our school the best place for their children, and to that end, support our learning initiatives and school activities.
