Welcome

Welcome to McArthur School!  We are excited to be part of this community where we can share all the great things that are happening here.  McArthur Elementary is situated in North-West Edmonton currently with classes from pre-Kindergarten to Grade 6. McArthur is also a designated Learning Strategies and a Behaviour Learning Assistance site for Edmonton Public Schools.  Along with these programs, McArthur is fortunate to house the Big Sisters and Big Brothers mentorship programs to benefit and enrich our student’s educational experience. 

We value our community being involved with our school -  Living up to our slogan:

“TOGETHER WE SHINE BRIGHTLY!

 

 

Dear Families, 

Welcome to McArthur School. 

Through discussion with all stakeholders, we have changed our school philosophy this year. Our philosophy is more clear and concise, and we will be able to share how we view our wonderful and unique school.

We believe:

  • In providing a safe and supportive learning environment to foster growth, diversity, and community.

Our school focuses on leadership. We have many opportunities for students to build their leadership skills by leading a club, helping others, making decisions to improve our school and more. We have monthly assemblies where leadership is celebrated and showcased. 

At McArthur School, students build strong foundations that will serve them well in Junior High, High School and beyond. We provide many opportunities for students to grow and increase achievement. We foster student’s growth by having a variety of interventions during the week: reading ability groups, math ability groups, intervention throughout the day to support academics, and social/emotional development.

With the strong support we receive from McArthur Advisory Council, McArthur is technologically very well equipped. There are SmartBoards with document cameras and FM systems in every classroom as well as Chromebooks for every student from grades 1-6. The MAC supports many events throughout the school year, and they fund all the field trips. We could not do many things without our MAC! Together, We Shine Brightly. 

I am looking forward to working with your children and your families. Please feel free to come in and have a coffee, conversation and connect with your community hub.

 

Yours in Learning,

 

Mrs. Sherry Saulou, B.A., B.Ed

Principal
