    Registration Information

    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. 

    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

    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

    Pre-enrol in SchoolZone (Current EPSB students) 

    Get ready for the 2020-21 school year! Sign in to your parent SchoolZone account between March 9 and April 15  to select your child’s preferred school for next year.  

    Whether your child is staying at the same school or changing schools, all students need to pre-enrol. Knowing how many students to expect helps schools prepare to welcome them in September. If you need help, contact the school or read the Pre-enrolment 2020-2021 document.

    Moved?
    Update your child’s current address with the school office before pre-enrolling in SchoolZone. 

    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

    Volunteering

    At Grace Martin School, we enjoy and appreciate exceptional parental involvement on a variety of levels. Parents are involved as volunteers at the school working with teachers and students as well as in the library and on special school projects.

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

It is truly a privilege to be the principal of Grace Martin School.  Our school’s highly skilled and caring staff continually works to ensure Grace Martin is a school of excellence; ensuring high levels of engagement and learning are possible for all of our students.  Our staff is committed to this goal by focusing on student learning, on collaboration and on results.  We do this by developing a sense of family and community second to none in the District.

As we grow and support our students through their educational journey, our teachers have the wonderful opportunity to meet with parents and their students identifying learning and citizenship goals.  This emphasis is based on our school’s four Pillars of Leadership:  respectful relationships, communication, partnerships and always asking, “What is best for kids.”

Grace Marin embraces inclusion.  We are a diverse school with students from nearly 60 countries representing nearly 30 languages, and one which shares and celebrates the unique gifts of students in all of our classrooms.   We celebrate these experiences and share the gifts of our First Nations, Metis and Inuit people who are our first Canadians.  Our school endeavors to engage our students with nature through our various programs, and teaches students how family connections and learning who you are becoming is celebrated, respected and shared.

I am proud of your children; I am proud of our teachers and I am particularly proud of our whole school community that is truly a lighthouse of diversity, acceptance and caring. Please, if you have any questions, our doors are open to all visitors.

Sincerely,

Dale Cooper

Principal
