    School Philosophy

    Mercedem non sine labore ad - No reward without effort 

    At Parkview School, we believe a school provides a safe, secure and caring environment where students are challenged to achieve to the best of their abilities. All students are expected to be responsible citizens and learners, and to be respectful of all individuals and their differences.  Teachers are required to ensure that learning and evaluating strategies that best fit the students are used, with an understanding that learning and evaluations of learning are shared with parents, and students. Parkview School staff are committed to high quality teaching and learning, and share in the leadership required for all students to not only succeed, but to become life-long learners.

Principal's Message

 

April 6, 2017

 

Dear Parents,

 

It is with surprise and mixed emotions that I write this letter to you.  I received a phone call from the Assistant Superintendent of Edmonton Public Schools asking me to be the principal of a different school starting for the 2017-2018 school year.  After much thought and consideration, I have decided to accept the move and will begin my tenure as Principal of Riverbend Junior High School for next school year.

 

I do want you to know that I am very proud of Parkview School and excited about the direction the school has been moving; however, when asked to make a transfer, I believe one must commit to the direction the district has for the good of all our schools, as I am assigned as Principal to the District and not to one particular school.

 

We have a number of initiatives planned for next year that are very exciting and I know these will move forward under the direction of the new Principal.  At this time a new Principal has not been appointed, however, once the process has been completed I will be informing all parents of the administrative change. I will be meeting with the new Principal to ensure a smooth transition for the next school year, continuing the important work at Parkview School to ensure the momentum remains positive and forward moving.                       

 

Upon reflection of my time at Parkview School, I am proud of the work we have accomplished in the seven years I have been here.  We have seen substantial growth in our student population due to the fact that many people seek an environment for their children that we have molded and fostered for all of our students. Behavioural issues have been reduced drastically as children are making good choices and want to be good citizens in school and beyond.  Several changes to the  physical structure of the building has been adapted to accommodate the needs of our students and staff. Parkview School continues to be a viable, welcoming and exciting place to learn and that is thanks to all the partners working together to create this wonderful learning atmosphere.

 

As you can see there continues to be a lot to be proud of at Parkview School; a school built on a great history and tradition with a bright and promising future.  It has been a pleasure to work with such dedicated and collegial staff, supportive parents and hard-working students.  I am excited about my new position at Riverbend School, but I will miss each and every one of you and wish you all the best as you continue on your educational journey with your children.

 

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me at school at 780-483-3415.

 

 

 

Sincerely,

 

 

 

Mr. D. Beharry

 

Principal
