Parents are welcome and encouraged to participate in all areas of their child's education, as they are their child's first and most important teachers.

Your Childs Health
As a school district, we will continue to teach children how to wash their hands properly and encourage frequent hand washing in all of our schools.
Parents play an important part in keeping their child healthy. Parents are encouraged to ensure your child is well rested, follows the hand washing and cover your cough procedures.
Digital Citizenship in Edmonton Catholic Schools
Digital Citizenship is a concept which helps teachers, technology leaders and parents to understand what students/children/technology users should know to use technology appropriately. Digital Citizenship is more than just a teaching tool; it is a way to prepare students/technology users for a society full of technology. Too often we are seeing students as well as adults misusing and abusing technology but not sure what to do. The issue is more than what the users do not know but what is considered appropriate technology usage.
