    Volunteering

    In-person visitors and volunteers will not be allowed in Division schools at this time. This includes guest speakers, sports-team coaches and artists in residence. Individuals are encouraged to communicate with the school through email or by phone.

    Currently, parent volunteers are not permitted in the school building. However, we are optimistic that we will find ways to work with parent volunteers later in the school year.

    Registration Information

    REGISTRATION OVER THE SUMMER

    Families who need to register their child(ren) for school are welcome to do so online over summer break. If you register over the summer, you will be contacted after staff return to school on Monday, August 24, 2020. See more information on this page about registering new students using our online form.

    NEW STUDENT REGISTRATION 

    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. 

    HOW TO REGISTER

    STEP 1: FILL OUT THE ONLINE FORM

    You will need to use an existing Gmail account or set up a free Gmail account to fill out the online form. This helps us protect the privacy of your personal information.

    STEP 2: UPLOAD A COMPLETED STUDENT REGISTRATION FORM AND SUPPORTING DOCUMENTATION

    Upload copies of the following documents:

    • a completed, signed Student Registration form (fill out the form electronically, print a copy and scan the completed copy, or print and take clear photos of each completed page.)

    • confirmation of address for the student's parent/guardian (see below)

    • legal proof of the student’s name, citizenship and birthdate (see below)

    All documents must be uploaded in order to submit the form. Please ensure that you are providing clearphotos and the entire page is visible for each document submitted. 

    Examples of accepted documentation:

    Legal proof of student’s name

    Confirmation of address

    • Canadian provincial birth certificate

    • Canadian citizenship document

    • passport

    • student visa

    • driver's license

    • utility bill

    • home insurance

    • property tax bill

    • In some cases, immigration documents (e.g. landed immigrant documentation or a Permanent Residence Card) may also be required. Visit Citizenship and Immigration Canada for more information.

    • In some cases, you may be asked to provide more than one of the above. 

    OTHER WAYS TO REGISTER

    Families who are unable to register online can mail their completed Student Registration form and copies of their supporting documents to the following address:

    Central Records
    18004-116 Avenue NW

    Edmonton  AB T5S 1L5

    CONFIRMING REGISTRATION SUBMISSION

    Once you have submitted your completed student registration form and supporting documents, we will review all of the documents. This does not mean your child has been enrolled at the school—we will contact you to let you know once your child is enrolled.

    We will contact you if we need clarification about any of the documents you submit.

    New to the Division?
    Instead of using SchoolZone, students who are new to Edmonton Public Schools need to submit a completed Student Registration form. Find the form and list of documents you need to confirm your address and child’s legal name

Welcome

‌‌Our school motto is "Giving Life to Learning".

Front of Grace Martin School

Within the motto, we believe that:

  • each student is unique and can learn albeit at different rates and in different ways
  • learning is a ongoing process which involves the intellectual, emotional, creative, and social development of students
  • the curriculum should accommodate the developmental needs of the student
  • students need to experience challenge and success
  • parents, in partnership with the school, are an integral part of their child's education

 

Special Characteristics of Grace Martin

 

 

Principal's Message

On behalf of the staff at Grace Martin School, it is my pleasure to extend a warm welcome to our school community.  As principal, my top priorities will be the safety and well-being of students, staff and families as we navigate these unprecedented times.  I encourage you to read Grace Martin’s Re-entry Strategy for a more detailed description of the safety protocols that will be in place when we return to school in September.  Families, students and staff will all need to do their part in following the safety measures at Grace Martin School.

Even though some of our routines may have changed, individual student success and positive behaviour continue to be priorities at Grace Martin School.  An open working relationship between school and home is vital as we strive to provide the support students require to succeed.  To do this, reliable and regular communication is needed to create an environment of trust and cooperation.  At this time, we encourage this communication to happen over the phone or email.  If you feel that an in-person meeting is necessary, please contact the school in advance to make an appointment.  

Positive, respectful behaviour from our entire school community is an expectation.  As students continue to learn how to socially interact with others, staff will provide guidance and direction.  Support from home regarding appropriate school behaviour will encourage each student to see that positive, respectful behaviour is an important character trait both at home and at school.  

Our fundamental, guiding principle will be kindness.  We will be kind and respectful in all of our daily interactions with each other.

If you have any questions or concerns, I encourage you to contact me.  

 

Randy Witte

Principal, Grace Martin School
