Welcome to Homesteader School
2016-17 School Supply Lists: http://homesteader.epsb.ca/forparents/parentresources/
It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to Homesteader School.
At Homesteader school, we strive to empower our students to make positive choices by providing quality learning experiences in a warm, friendly, nurturing environment. With a strong focus on numeracy, literacy and 21st century skills, all staff members are dedicated to helping each and every student achieve success. As a collaborative inclusive community, we provide students with a variety of rich educational experiences.
We offer classes in Grades 1 through 6, a full-day Kindergarten (made possible by funds raised by the Edmonton Public Schools Foundation) and we are also a district site for both Early Education and Opportunity programs.
We draw approximately 190 students from our immediate community, and around 80 students are bussed in to attend our special program classes. To further increase the reading ability of our wonderful students, we also offer Middle Years Literacy Intervention and Leveled Literacy Intervention.
Homesteader staff and students are proud to be a “Leader in Me" School. We began the program four years ago, and now, many of the 7 Habits and other leadership skills have become imbedded in our practice, and into the language we use on a daily basis. We also partner with the University of Alberta in the promotion of physical activity and nutritious eating through the APPLE Schools project.
We are very fortunate to have so many parents support our students during our special events and on our field trips. This year, we look forward to working with even more parents and community members. All parents are welcome at School Council meetings.
I am excited and proud to be the Principal of this amazing school. I would love to hear your positive comments or proactive solutions to any concerns. Please feel free to contact me at the school any time.
