    Registration & Pre-enrolment

    Welcome To Thelma Chalifoux


    See more information on this page about registering new students using our online form.

     Please note that Thelma Chalifoux School is full in planned classes. We will accept registrations if you are a resident of Edmonton Public Schools and have newly moved into our attendance area.  A resident student of Edmonton Public Schools has at least one parent or legal guardian that is non-Roman Catholic and who resides within the City of Edmonton. Non-resident students may only enrol in another Division school with space remaining in planned classes.


    New to Edmonton Public Schools

    Because schools remain closed to students and visitors due to COVID-19, new student registrations will now be submitted online. If your child is new to the Division, you must complete our school’s online registration form, fill out and upload the Student Registration form and submit supporting documents before your child(ren) can be registered for the upcoming school year. 

    Our school will no longer accept printed registrations. Do not drop off student registration forms at the school. 

    Submitting a registration package after the deadline of April 15, 2020 may limit your options to schools with available space.Learn more about registration dates and deadlines

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.

Tim Boan
