    2022/2023 REGISTRATION INFORMATION

    2022-23 Registration 

    New student registration for the 2022-23 school year will begin February 1, 2022. Kindergarten families and families new to the Division are encouraged to register for school online, using the new digital submission form. This preferred approach supports the Division’s health and safety measures and improves the way the Division collects student information and parent signatures required by Alberta Education. Watch for the Division’s new online process for new student registration, which will enable families, including Kindergarten families, to register using a centralized form on Visit the Division website to learn how to register for school.

    Please note:  Children who are five years old on or before December 31, 2022 (born in 2017) may register in Kindergarten for the 2022-23 school year.

    If you have questions about registration, please email us at donaldmassey@epsb.ca or call the office at 780-457-5435.

  • The west side of 55 street
  • The east side of 54B street

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 supports almost 1000 students from Grades K-9.  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 our staff, students, families, and community.

This school year will be like no other.  Classrooms, hallways and non-instructional times will look different.  Learning in cohorts will include restrictions never before experienced by staff and students while an “unwell” student will warrant a heightened response.  However, as we strive to continue providing the top quality education program our students deserve in these uncertain times, we must remember that:  

“In the middle of difficulty lies opportunity.”

Albert Einstein

Therefore we, the dedicated, highly functioning and collaborative team at Dr. Donald Massey, will continue to use our collective wisdom to challenge students to be the best that they can be.   We will strive to create a safe and welcoming learning environment through this year’s theme  “Empower the Spirit” that is based on the Seven Sacred Teachings on human conduct towards others:  Love, Respect, Courage, Honesty, Wisdom, Humility and Truth.  We will endeavor to help students see mistakes not as failures, but as essential parts of the learning process whether they are learning in-class or on-line.  We will help students be accountable for their conduct and assume their rightful responsibilities as learners while developing positive relationships with others.  

We cannot do this incredibly important work without you.  It takes a village to support a child in their journey through life, through education.  We look forward to walking that journey with you and together making sure your child’s educational experience at Dr. Donald Massey is one they will forever be proud of.  

Sincerely,

Cheryl Belyea

Principal

Dr. Donald Massey School
