  • The west side of 55 street
  • The east side of 54B street
  • The corner of 54 street and 159 avenue (by the Hollick-Kenyon Park sign - students would walk across the school field)

Principal's Message

Welcome to Dr. Donald Massey School.

At Dr. Donald Massey School we believe that every student has the right to an excellent education and the responsibility to develop their talents and abilities while learning to live peacefully, protect the environment, and respect others.  Our school ls proud to have grades K-9 with a population of 925+! Our learning environment is positive and caring and thus supports individual differences, allowing all students to take risks in pursuit of excellence.  We strive to build strong relationships between staff, students, families, and the community.

We continue to challenge students to be the best that they can be.   We help them to accept their own and others' strengths and challenges and celebrate each other’s successes.  We endeavor to help students to see mistakes not as failures, but as essential parts of the learning process.  We help students to become accountable for their conduct and the development of positive relationships with others as well as to assume their rightful responsibilities as learners.

At Dr. Donald Massey School we strive to be environmentally friendly. The structure of our building and practices that we use have been designed to Lead Silver standards.  Teachers and students have also put routines into place to ensure that we support our environment. With this goal in mind, to help cut down on paper use, please remember to check SchoolZone regularly.  Passwords are sent out at the beginning of each year so that all parents can access Schoolzone for each child in their family.  Throughout the school year we create opportunities for our families to participate in meetings, celebrations, after school activities and special days.  Parents and students will receive information about these events through SchoolZone.  It is very important that parents have current and valid email addresses on file with us in order to receive notice of postings relative to their children. SchoolZone also gives families access to school information, report cards, attendance information, and specific classroom news.  If you require assistance with Schoolzone, please contact our school office.

You will find a copy of our student and parent information guide on this website. We created it as a framework for working together as a school community and continue to revise it based on our needs and experiences. Our handbook contains much information related to our expectations, processes and procedures. We ask that all parents review this document with their child(ren) each year.

The relationship between home and school is essential in completing the circle of success for students.  We truly appreciate parents for the support of their sons and daughters and of Dr. Donald Massey School. We look forward to continue working together as we embark on each new school year.

Sincerely,

Camille Loken, MEd

Principal

Dr. Donald Massey School
