    School Profile

    Centennial School was built in 1982 to commemorate the centenary of Edmonton Public Schools.  Centennial School is located in the southwest part of the city, primarily serving the communities of Gariepy, Dechene, Donsdale and Uplands. We are part of a community-minded neighbourhood where great emphasis is placed on education and parents have high expectations for their children and the school. In addition to academics, we believe in the importance of providing a variety of opportunities to positively impact the development of the whole child.

TREATY LAND ACKNOWLEDGEMENT

As members of the Centennial Elementary School Community, we are filled with gratitude as we honour Treaty 6 Territory, a traditional meeting place to the Cree, Metis, Blackfoot, Dene, Nakota Sioux, Saulteaux, and Inuit. Our inherent responsibility to safeguard and preserve the Earth stems from the First Nations’ relationship to the land.  Today, and all days, we acknowledge our shared history and the work we must do collectively to make the future a better place for all in our journey of reconciliation. 
 

Principal's Message

Welcome to Centennial School! Whether your child is currently attending our school, or you are looking to register your child, you will find information about our school and the high-quality instruction we provide for our students. The information contained on this website is generic in nature and intended for an audience new to our learning community.  If you are already part of the Centennial family, you can find more detailed information on SchoolZone.

Centennial students are provided with a number of learning activities and experiences to allow them to interact with curriculum in meaningful ways. This includes providing access to; a wide range of books to engage readers in our school library, guided reading collection, home reading collections, and classroom libraries; math manipulatives to make numbers make sense; educational technology such as Chromebooks and iPads; in-school and off-site field trips; clubs and leadership opportunities; and artists in residence programs.

In an effort to ensure all students are successful, staff use a differentiated approach to teaching. This approach includes thoughtful planning, strategic assessment of learning outcomes, and targeted, flexible instruction. Classroom teaching is a blend of whole class, group, partner, and individual instruction. Students are provided with multiple opportunities to make sense of ideas and information, practice new skills, and to demonstrate what they have learned.  Intervention, supports, and services are offered through a multi-tiered framework to students who are experiencing learning difficulties and/or behavioural challenges.  Our approach includes universal strategies such as high-quality instruction and the collection and analysis of school-wide data; targeted strategies such as providing accommodations and small group instruction; and specialized strategies such as individualized programming and additional assessments.  We are committed to helping all learners be successful!

At Centennial School, we believe that educating our students is a collective responsibility, shared by students and their families, school staff, and the entire community.  Communication is an important component for the success of any partnership.  We welcome your ideas, support, feedback, and involvement throughout the year. Our enthusiastic and hardworking staff look forward to working closely with you and providing the best education for your child.  

Our vision is to provide multiple pathways for our students to achieve and demonstrate success academically, socially, and emotionally, for successful living.  Through meaningful relationships and encouraging a growth mindset, our students will succeed because of Centennial’s nurturing and collaborative environment.  Emphasis is placed on creating an environment where students feel capable, connected, and are contributing members in our school community and the broader community in meaningful and fulfilling ways.

On behalf of the staff, welcome to Centennial School!

Sincerely,

Shannon Harwood

Principal
