    Pre-enrol in SchoolZone 

    Get ready for the 2021-22 school year! Sign in to your parent SchoolZone account between March 8 and April 15 to select your child’s preferred school for next year.  

    Whether your child is staying at the same school or changing schools, all students need to pre-enrol. Knowing how many students to expect helps schools prepare to welcome them in September.

     If you need help, contact the school or read the Pre enrollment handout


    Update your child’s current address with the school office before pre-enrolling in SchoolZone. 

    New to the Division?

    Instead of using SchoolZone, students who are new to Edmonton Public Schools need to submit a completed Student Registration form. Find the form and list of supporting documents you need to provide.

    School Philosophy

    Our staff will work collaboratively with the school community and families to help create a culture that supports all learners. Every decision we make will be aligned with our Division’s cornerstone values of:

    • accountability
    • collaboration
    • equity
    • integrity

    This will guide our work and help create a school culture and environment where all students and staff have the opportunity to realize their maximum potential.

    Staff will collaborate on a regular basis to ensure the most effective instructional strategies, essential learning outcomes, common assessments and data analysis are being consistently utilized. This will support the creation of a culture of excellence and one where every student experiences success, gaining the necessary skills to become independent life-long learners. At Thelma Chalifoux School, it is our responsibility to create a true 21st Century learning environment that will provide students the opportunity to strive for excellence, while ensuring high levels of learning for all students.

Principal's Message

I am extremely honoured to be appointed the first principal of Thelma Chalifoux School. It is a great privilege to serve the students, families and school community.

As your Principal, I am committed to providing our students with a safe and welcoming school environment to learn in each day. My goal is to ensure students have the opportunity to explore, create and work to their greatest potential. I want our students to be confident in their own learning and be positive, contributing citizens to our community.

A word that had significant meaning to Thelma Chalifoux was the Cree term, Otipemisiwak, which means “being your own boss.” It is vital for our students to be 21st century learners. This will allow them to become critical thinkers who can collaborate, problem solve and adapt to whatever comes their way. Students who take the initiative to advocate for themselves and others will help bring the term, Otipemisiwak to life at Thelma Chalifoux School.

I am thrilled to open the doors to our new building for the 2020-2021 school year! I look forward to meeting and working with you in the coming months. Together, we can work to set high standards for academics and citizenship for our students, while honouring our namesake.
