    New S.T.E.M Program

    Thelma Chalifoux School is excited to be offering the only 7-9 S.T.E.M Alternative Program in EPSB.

    TCS is a vibrant 21st Century Learning Environment. Our flexible spaces for students and staff encourage collaboration, creativity, innovation, and self-discovery. Thelma Chalifoux is proud to be the only junior high school in Edmonton Public Schools that offers a S.T.E.M. alternative program to support student learning through the lens of Design-Thinking and Project-Based Learning.

    In September 2022, our school will offer the Division’s new Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) alternative program.

    • Immersive, hands-on learning, the STEM program will offer students a deeper understanding of each of the STEM fields and work on projects that require creative and innovative solutions
    • The focus will be on learning new and inventive ways to approach real-world problems through brainstorming, prototyping and testing cycles

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
Principal
