There is so much to be excited about at Thelma Chalifoux School (TCS) for September 2023! Our beautiful building continues to amaze those who walk through it and we are embracing the significant growth in our student population, whether that is in the STEM Program or or Regular Program, with excitement and hopefulness. Over this past year, post-pandemic, we have witnessed the strength of our community, diversity and the vibrant culture within our school which makes learning at TCS a fun, rigorous and inclusive experience for everyone.
Senator Thelma Chalifoux, our school’s namesake, was known for being a strong and independent woman, unwilling to back down from fighting for the issues she cared bout. She valued hard work and dedication, which is what eventually landed her in the Senate of Canada. It’s these values that we hope to instill in our students at TCS as we prepare them for high school and what lies beyond their academic careers.
Unique to TCS is our STEM program (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics). Through our vibrant, 21st century learning environment and design cycle approach to learning, students are challenged to be innovative, collaborative, and creative. Like all learning at TCS, our STEM program fosters a culture of high academic performance, grit, and resiliency.
PRE ENROLMENT AND REGISTRATION UPDATE - MAY 2023
Thanks to all the families who enrolled before the deadline of April 14th, to help our school get ready for 2023-24! We’re happy to let you know that, based on available space, all students who registered or pre-enrolled before April 14th, 2023, have been accepted.
For the 2023 - 2024 school year, Thelma Chalifoux School is full in planned classes in:
Grade 7, 8 and 9 in the Regular program
Grades 7, 8 and 9 in the STEM program
We will no longer be accepting enrolment requests for Grades 7, 8 and 9 STEM program. For the regular program, we will now only accept resident students for Grade 7, 8 and 9 who have newly moved into the school’s attendance area. A resident student of Edmonton Public Schools has at least one parent or legal guardian living in Edmonton who is not Roman Catholic. Non-resident students can enrol in another Division school with space in planned classes. If you are new to Edmonton Public Schools, you must register online.
Whether you’ve come to TCS for our academics, STEM, flexible learning environment, or inviting school culture, you have what it takes to embody the Cree term Otipemisiwak (Be Your Own Boss).
All the best for a great future of learning and we look forward to meeting our future Senators and their families on September 5th, 2023!
Principal Shauna L. Paul
